I don’t know about you, but ever since mobile phones with address books have been popular, I have an awfully hard time remembering anyone’s actual phone number, even close friends and family.

I know that’s pretty pathetic, but I bet the majority of you are in my boat as well. This makes the concept behind StartDial all the more intriguing. Why would anyone want to make their phone.app always open to the dialer?

Maybe the developers of the app have realized that we have a deficiency when it comes to remembering phone numbers, and they’re secretly trying to help us? Who knows, but other than that, I can’t really think of a reason why I would regularly use this tweak.

I guess it could be good if you’re a business person, or perhaps a telemarketer who is always calling someone who is not in his or her address book. I could definitely see the benefit there.

I think StartDial would be a whole lot better if there were some additional options in the settings app that let your configure what section your Phone app opened to; it would be a lot more useful then.

StartDial can be downloaded free from Cydia if you have a jailbroken iPhone.

Are you going to try it out?
