home screen shortcut for speed dial

You know, in the end this is a phone and when i want to place a call it will be in a speed dail mode

and i like to manage the speed dial in groups/folders but i have no way to do this in this phone without buying an app.. 

 

how lame is this phone no to support outof the box creating a shortcuts for "direct call" of a person and then i could group them in a floder like i want ...

this phone OS is lame .. very remind me the iPhone that also don't have this only Android understand the usage of a PHONE!!!!

Please, if you need help in this user-to-user community support, don't expect a lot of help by posting such as you have done.

 

Speed-dial is possible and has been discussed in numerous threads as well as in the Tips and Tricks thread. If you need specific help with that process, please ask.

Re: home screen shortcut for speed dial

ok... in order to solve this issue i need help for the folowing:


i saw that there is an application on the app store for speed dial but it is not free.. however i have seen that there is a lot of FREE Android apps 
that do this (https://play.google.com/store/search...l&c=apps&hl=en) the problem is that currently i don't know how to convert them and don't know if they will work on the Z10 device.. 

can anyone help and test it with a converted bar file ?

Re: home screen shortcut for speed dial

There is speed dial built into the device OS.
If you need to create an app I suggest we move this thread to our developer section of this forum.
If you simply need to convert apk files: http://www.google.com/url?q=http://apps.goodereader.com/apk-2-bar/&sa=U&ei=xkkbUtSMBNKE2gWyyoEg&ved=...

i know that there is a speed dial in the "phone" native interface but it is limited on the phone upper bar and not diveded by groups so i prefer that i can create short cuts of "direct call" contacts and group them into the floder so i can access them like i want.

 

this is the application i wanted: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.hotline.PicCall&hl=en

 

can you please test for me what would work because i know that not always all covertion works also i don't know how to download this APK... it can be only downloaded to an android device..

Re: home screen shortcut for speed dial

No, I am sorry, I can't test it for you.

 

Again, if you're developing an app or need testing of such, please say so and we'll get this thread moved over to the developer section.

In that case, there are no "Groups" in the speed dial, and you will need to create an app to do so.
