Do you hate holding down the alt key to dial phone numbers with letters in them? Are the buttons too small for your fingers and you find yourself misdialing phone numbers? If you answered yes then keep reading to find out about easyDial by TechFruits.com.

EasyDial is an app that transforms the BlackBerry Bold series (including the Porsche) screens to a dial pad with the letters on each number for phone calls. The app also makes it easier to make phone calls with larger buttons for those who say the dial pad is too small. The keys have the corresponding letters like on regular telephones so no more holding down the 'alt' key and dialing when you have to dial a phone number which includes letters. The numbers typed in will display in the North American-style of dialing (ie. (XXX) XXX-XXXX) but will still make calls if the numbers are from a different region.

Added features in the latest v1.2:

  • larger delete button
  • close app button
  • clear field button.
  • future update will include a feedback noise when pressing buttons per users requests.

The screen dial pad comes in handy. My only suggestions would be to make the icon different from the phone’s original one. I find myself opening the wrong one all the time. Currently this app is only available for the BlackBerry Bold 99xx and Porsche 9981 smartphones. You can purchase easyDial for only $0.99 in BlackBerry App World.

For more information / purchase easyDial

Contest: We have 10 copies of easyDial from TechFruits.com to give away. To enter, simply leave a comment on this post. The contest ends this Sunday at midnight PST. Please only leave one comment as multiple entries won’t count. Remember folks, this app only works for the BlackBerry Bold 99xx and Porsche smartphones so please only enter to win if you have one of these devices.

Good Monday Morning. I am the 6th person to comment on this. With my eye sight is weakening this would be an awesome app for my 9900. I am hoping to be one of the lucky winners.

mosheys

WoW Finally! I must get it.

jimsbag

Been considering this app since its first reviews last week.

syke2k12

Awesome app, I hope I win.

AdamNips

Would be interested to see if I'd default to what I've been using for years (the keyboard) or could make the change to the app/touchscreen to dial. Post!

mange1984

diamondj

Count me in for a win!

dewey32399

I bought the 9900 partly because of the large keyboard but in my car dialing is very dangerous trying to hit the right keys. Voice dialing is not the answer either. Please pick me as I'm all thumbs!

dfanella

Looks like a very useful app!

noelito4three

A 9900 user from the philippines would love to have this!

theDoctor78

Fantastic for my 9900..:)

morganplus8

One more good reason to own a 9900! Thanks.

dtango

what sort of sausage fingers do people have if the KEYPAD is too small for them? why would you buy a blackberry for any other reason than the keypad so if its too small why do they have a blackberry lol

livejam

This would be cool for me and my 9930!

rkopsie

Wow! I'm definitely entering in this contest!

len5

Never understood why all BBs with touch screen display don't come with an onscreen keypad for making calls. Would be so much easier than using the physical keyboard for dialing.

spencerdl

GREAT app, Thanks for developing "easydial" ......just what the 99xx ordered

ggap10
