Shockingly, Windows Phone lacks both speed dialing and a real favorite people category (don’t tell me to pin 10 people to my home screen). But what if we could get not just a speed dialer, but something with the ability to tap on a button to call/email/sms your favorite contacts or launch a website? Well that’s what 1Touch is. You can set up to 80 tiles worth of actions (20 per page) and each tile can have either a contact or a website. If it’s a contact then you can set the default action (so you can call them, text them, email them or launch an action screen to choose which one) or if you tap and hold you can bring up a screen to choose a secondary action from. Of course, with so many open tiles you can add more than one tile per contact and as you can see it’s super easy on your eyes to see all of your tiles at once and what the default action is. Add this with the fact that it’s free (ad based but the ad is non-obtrusive at the top) and it’s a done deal. Oh and since it’s called 1Touch it will be on the top of your apps list so even if you don’t give it a tile it’ll be simple to get to. Want to see it in action?
So there you have it. Oh and expect a paid version (at $.99) in the near future that has a few more options. But we’ll tell you when that hits;) Check the Marketplace under the name “1Touch” or “Herm” to find the developer since it’s from Herm’s Software. There are other apps with similar names that lack the aesthetics and the value so make sure you get the real deal.
