Android App: Dialer One

Dialer One is another app that should be included with Android.  Dialer One replaces the simple phone dialer that ships with Android with one that can perform T9 searches on your phonebook.  Even many basic non-smartphones provide this functionality, so I’m not sure why Google omitted it.  Many phone manufacturers (HTC, Samsung and I think Sony) include their own dialer,  so in those cases, this app would be redundant.

Dialer One is a ‘must have’ application, but has problems.  Contact pictures sometimes do not display, due to restricted access to Facebook profile pictures.  It’s also slow on my HTC Magic running Android 2.1.  On faster phones and Android 2.2, I would expect it to run without sluggishness.
