    Only thing I can't figure out is, when it says 1/5 results, how do I move to the next results?

    Press the +Contacts button to move to the next result.
    Also, if you continue to type matching the current result, that will cause the next result to come up.

    Is this worth replacing the original dialer?

    I don't have features to show Recent Calls, or access Contacts or add new Contacts, or access VoiceMail.

    I think it depends on how much you dial versus receive calls, but then, I am probably biased

    thanks NetMage for this perfect release! incorporating kdialer into idialer even makes the user experience so much sweeter. most of all, thank you for incorporating the full WM name+number smart dial!

    this IS the perfect replacement for the stock dialer. makes dialing so much quicker than scrolling a long rolodex. this makes for a perfect permanent replacement for any app/icon on the front page springboard real estate.

    HI, this sounds like a great app but after installing it from the installer on my 1.1.1 iphone, and launching it, the showed the loading..... but then keeps crashing back to the home screen.

    Is it because I have over 1500 contacts? Is it possible to do something about this? Thanks.

    Cheers and Happy New Year.

    Thanks! Works fine on my 1.1.1 phone.

    Some suggestions:

    -When a call fails using iDialer, the screen returns to the default phone app. Maybe an option to either return to the default phone app or iDialer.

    -Matching letter highlight is not very discernible. Highlighting can be made stronger.

    -Could use a better icon.

    Thanks a lot for putting effort in coming up with this very useful app!
    Happy New Year!!!

    It is one of the apps that I wished to have....
    It is awesome that we have this smart dialer. Thank you.

    however it takes a while to load

    Is it just me? Is there a trick so that once you click the icon the app starts right up?

    Is this a replacement of the default dialer or another app on home screen?

    It can take a while to load if you have a lot of Contacts.

    It is not a replacement for the default dialer - I don't think I have the fortitude to duplicate Apple's Contacts/Recent Calls and VoiceMail apps.

    If there were an easy way to hook into the MobilePhone app to replace portions, that would be different. But I don't think that is too easy.

    Unfortunately that is due to the tel: URL I am using for dialing. The same thing should happen when you dial a web page number, I think I will need Apple's SDK to know a better way to dial #s.

    I can adjust the highlighting, but I was trying to avoid using colors that would conflict with the custom dialpad's (like Armadillo's that I use) that expect the bright white the standard dialer uses. Maybe I will add some color pickers

    What would you like to see in a better icon?

    Yes, I am loading all phone #s in.

    I think I must be creating too much garbage or leaking memory when loading.

    I hope to be working on this over the weekend.

    PS That's a lot of Contacts

    I only have 900 contacts and it takes 13 seconds to load iDialer (and kDialer). Way too long, IMHO.

    But it is working for you?

    I think I am having a problem with all the processing I am doing to create in-memory indexes for the searching. And, I agree, that is way too long considering how fast the built-in Contacts launches.

    Please make a version of this that works with the touchmods VOIP app!

    If iDialer is crashing, or if it is taking very long to launch, can you please try the version attached? Just copy it into the /Application/iDialer.app folder in place of the previous iDialer.

    Let me know if it is faster or works instead of crashing.

    Also, if you can launch it with SSH and send me the log output, that would be very helpful.

    Thanks!
