    Hello all,

    Either my google/search-fu is not so good, or no one touched on this.

    I have the Noo Picture Frame app that adds a photowidget to your dekstop, and assigns it to a contact so all you have to do is press that photoframe, and you can dial that person directly from it.

    Problem is, it stops working for no reason that I can find. I'm constantly deleting the widget and remaking it.

    Are there any other apps that do the same thing? My Android-Market-Fu is not very good either, it seems.

    I use Quickdial. It shows a fullscreen of 12 photos so all you have to do is touch a photo and it dials that person.

    Thanks for telling me about Quickdial, I'll probably make use of it, though I don't think it'll do what I want exactly.

    How different is NooPictureFrame than just making a widget on your screen.

    I made a widget to call someone, and it added their picture that was in their contact info. So now it's a widget with their pic and all I do is press it to call.

    Ooh. When I went and read about it, it seemed as if you had to call up the app and it'd display a bunch of contacts with pictures. Maybe I misunderstood it, or didn't see all the information?

    It sounds like it might just do what I want then. Will check it out when I've got more money in my app fund.

    Why don't you people just make a folder with shortcuts (direct dial, message or both) to all your favorite contacts? Maybe i'm missing something.

    oh okies lol i guess the little shortcut pic isn't big enough. i just threw that in becuz you were considering quickdial which to me is a waste of money if you can just make a folder with your favs in it :D i'll have to look into that picture frame you're talking about :D

    If you create a short cut of a direct dial it shows up with there pix...It's just kinda small, but free!

    I've been messing around with creating the direct dial shortcuts. I've noticed that about half the time it does not create a shortcut, and I have to do it again to get one?

    Edit: nevermind it was dropping it behind other shortcuts for some reason.
