Missing premium features
I paid for the premium version to have 3D Touch to make a call. It has now been removed with this recent update. It now requires further steps to call someone rather than a two step. It also doesn’t allow me to select the classic widget which is advertised within the app. It was far better before the update. It would be nice to get the previous options back, especially if people paid for the premium version. Prior to that, the app was a 5 star. It’s 3 or 4 for now.
Not the same, but it is something if you want to see the face bubble
It’s not a 1-touch dial. 1st I tried making a shortcut & put it as a widget, and yes it will dial w/ 1-touch, but I didn't like their name as just text & not see the bubble w/ their face (I like seeing my grandma’s smiling face when I call her everyday). So I downloaded this & it looks almost the same as before however it isn’t 1-touch. You click the face & then it brings up option to call, facetime, whatsapp etc so that’s why I took off a star. I took off a 2nd star bc I only use 4 contacts (it looks like you can do up to 10 on widget, I’m just saying that bc my 4 take up spots in the widget as if they are 4 of 10, vs just showing them as just the 4, or 4 out of 5 if they are using 5 across in the widget). And paying $1.99 to upgrade to possibly change them to make bigger in the widget is crazy when that at least should be in the free section. If they want to make you pay for the 1-touch option or other added features, that I understand. If they give the option of paying for 1-touch (even tho it’s unlikely I’d pay unless it was cheap) Or give ability to adjust the number of contacts to make widget smaller or fill the widget space, I will adjust rating as well.
Just what I was looking for...almost
I have never reviewed an app before but this one was worth my time. I tried out a Samsung for two days - that's all I could stand! And while I could get almost every app on it - it still sucked! The ONLY thing that I liked about it was the ability to add my favorite contacts to the home screen. This widget is the closest thing I have found that will allow me easy access to the people I call and text regularly. Just wish it could be on the home screen and not just a widget!
