Simple Dialer Widget helps you save some time by placing a dial pad widget in your device homescreen

Actually, it's more than a simple dial-pad: it's a homescreen widget for the built-in dial Android app which gives you access to the dial-pad, last calling log and phonebook. Yes, you're just saving one tap if you have the dial shortcut in your dock, however, one tap from here, another one from there... it sums lots of worthy seconds you can spend doing other stuff.

Placing it in your homescreen is quite easy: long-press on homescreen, tap on widgets and select "Simple Dialer Widget". Widget preferences menu will show up. From there you can customize the widget: basically color, font size and tabs. Just to name some of the options: header background color, icon color, call icon color, dialer call icon size, show/hide cotacts tab, call log tab, set date format, text size and number of entries on the call log.

Although the widget should be enhanced regarding smoothness, for example, when switching from one tab to another or when dialing; it works quite good. A time-saving solution that shows why any mobile OS should include a homescreen and widgets feature.

Developer's original description available here
Place phone calls from your home screen without opening the dialer app!

The widget offers a dial pad, shows your call log or all your contacts. The widget is resizeable and the log and contacts tab are scrollable too.
Also, you can fully customize the widget (change every color, text size, ...) and put the widget on your Lockscreen (later requires Android 4.2, I recommend to disable the "dialer"-tab when placing the widget on the lockscreen)

    However there's quite a bit of lag when you scroll through the contacts section and it's kind of annoying how frequently the widget keeps crashing. Any help on how to fix this?

    I really missed the ability to just make a phone call, but who really makes calls anymore, right? This app solves my dilemma of taking an hour to call someone or to just dial a number really. I have it filling the screen next to my home screen, so now instead of pressing the screen lock, inputting the unlock code, hitting the home screen (seems im never there) opening the phone app, clicking on th
