Ratings and Reviews
I have tried many different apps with widgets for my favorite contacts. This one is the only one that was able to do everything I wanted. Easy setup, groups, contact photos and every method of communication. Very nice and functional widget. The only suggestion would be to make the widget text labels and communication icons larger. The labels on high resolution devices is hard to read. Excellent app.
I love this app for fast dialing your most frequent contacts. More customization than iOS favorites and quick to react.
I have to add an addendum at this point. Ever since ios11 came out the widget collapses and cuts off half of the bottom row of contacts no matter what size you make them. It also does not fast dial any more when you 3D hard press your contact. It instead brings up a box that asks if you want to call this number and you ha e to hit “yes” to place the call which completely defeats the 3D Touch dial. Until the developer fixes this it is just slightly better that the built in favorites widget.
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!
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
