During the Sony Ericsson Xperia arc review we mentioned the lack of predictive dial. Let me be honest and say that I love predictive dial and have used it since it appeared in Windows Mobile 6.5. It’ll let you start typing a name or number and will locate it from your contacts list. This speeds up the dialing process a great deal and is present in a lot of Android HTC devices.
If you have a phone where it isn’t available, try Dialer One. It’s a “T9-like dialer application” which lets you do that predictive dial along with other features such as sending contacts, filtering calls by type and grouping calls within logs.
If you’re using this application, do let us know what you think. On the Xperia arc it really helped to give the functionality I was used to. This is one of the free apps available – there are others, so we’d love to know what you’re using.
