    Anyone know of a CyDialer-like LockInfo plugin?

    Or something that would let me do what CyDialer did for pre-iOS 4 iPhones?

    I would even be content if, on the lock screen, I could bring up the Phone apps "Favorites" list using Activator and be able to dial without unlocking the phone.

    Maybe something like this exists and I just don't know about it.

    SwitcherPlus allows you to access the native multitasking bar from the lock screen. Double-tap the home button and up pops the multitasking bar. As long as your phone app icon is present, you can just press it and it opens.

    Hope that helps.

    It's an idea....thanks. But that means the Phone app has to be running. Plus, I want the "Favorites" list to pop up with a single press of the home button at the lock screen.

    BiteSMS allows you to dial your favorites from the lockscreen but it's not as easy as cydialer. With bitesms you have to bring up quickcompose first and then you can dial any of your favorites that way. Not ideal but maybe good enough for you. If you don't have bitesms, you should at least try it out (the trial is free too).

    This is what I do to make calls from the lockscreen. It doesn't hurt to give it a try if you don't already have BiteSMS.

    That's good.....but still not the functionality I am looking for.

    Thanks,

    I tried setting short hold = show favorites with the location as "anywhere" in Activator, but it doesn't work for the lock screen. Maybe there's some kind of activator plugin that adds functionality?

    With Switcher Plus you can set favorites specific to the lock screen. I have my phone set to be a favorite only when in the lock screen. As i understand things this does not require the phone to be running. Not perfect as it opens to last phone screen but it is pretty close.

    Edit: What I'm after is a program that will all me to just dial a contact with one number by only selecting their name. I hate going into a contact and then having to select a phone number when there is only one to choose from, makes no sense. Does anyone know of such a thing?

    Installed IntelliDial and had a crash to safe mode with 5 minutes. Not a good start. Also, the "INTELLIDIAL" banner in the app is grotesque!!

    I suspect I will not spend the $1.99 on this and will instead wait for CyDialer....

    Thanks guys, but based on what S has seen I think I'll wait a bit.

    I read this tweet pair:

    Romeo26222 @chpwn it seems that @saurik will not make iOS 4 compatible cydialer Won't you think about develope similar app?

    chpwn @Romeo26222 Cydget and Cydialer are being worked on. That is an incredibly wrong claim.

    IntelliDial

    I used the three day trial for the last three days and it worked flawlessly. I'm spending the $$ for IntelliDial 4.1.8!!

    The app is too darn ugly. I'll wait for saurik to see what he comes up with.

    Agreed, I had it on my phone for 30 mins and just couldn't stand the extremely poor graphics. That is the shortest trial I've ever given an app. :)
