Addial 02

Addial (pronounced ad-yal) is a recently released tweak that allows you to add a new contact or dial a phone number directly from Notification Center. Its design is much in the same style as the stock iOS “tap to” widgets, like Facebook, and Twitter, so it fits right into Notification Center without standing out like a sore thumb.

Tapping the Add Contact button will bring up the same sheet that you normally see when adding a new contact. The Dial Phone button, brings up a phone dialer, along with a popup window containing the digits for the number you wish to dial. This isn’t the most elegant way of adding a new contact or dialing a number, but it serves the purpose well.

Addial features a preference pane in the Settings app for localizing the tweak. This means that you can change the text found on the Add Contact and Dial Phone buttons to anything of your choice.

Addial is a free jailbreak tweak, and it’s available for download right now on Cydia’s ModMyi repo. As always, be sure to share your thoughts on the tweak in the comments section below.

  • Useful

  • I love this kind of tweaks implemented in the NC, like tap to widgets. They are really useful and nice-looking.

    • I love them too, although it doesn’t look great if you have a bunch of them installed. Someone should bring the devs together and make one that brings them all together.

  • It would be nice if this integrated with tap to widgets…

    Like the “Add Contact” part but the “Dial” feature needs some UI changes.
