A very basic feature that I was missing in my Android phone is the ability to save a number while I'm in a call. Sure you can go to the home screen, and open up any app with a textbox, but I decided to create a dedicated application.
So, meet Number Saver!
UPDATE: Number Saver got a new look
Basic usage guide:
When you open the app you will get the main screen:
From here you are able to enter the number, copy to the clipboard, and clear the clipboard if it is full. Also, when you open the app, if there is a text in the clipboard it will already be in the text box. So you can press Dial to instantly dial the number
Also, during an active call you will notice the note and pencil icon. Stretching the notification area will give you the option to launch the application.
This app is available for free through the Android market. Donation is always welcome ...
Last week I got a hold of the HTC G1 Android Developer Phone. This (how else) was preceded by a big fight with my cellular operator who insisted that I will take a data plan.
Ok, I said to myself, I bought this phone so that obviously mean I will use cellular internet. "So how much is that data plan?" I asked the representative.
"It's 1000K" she replied. "1MB?" I asked in wonder. "No, not 1MB – 1000 KB!"
That's when I understood she has no clue what she's talking about. Furthermore, this "joke-data plan" was limited to WAP browsing. Oh come on!!!!
And I can't replace it for a real data plan; I have to add money on top of it!
Well, I do not want to bore you with this specific war, because this is only a prolog for this post, but let's just say it pays off to be stubborn. I ended up with no obligation to any data plan (which of course I took one, but now I can cancel it any time).
Now that I've got THAT over with, I got around to checking out this wonderful phone (and forgive me iPhone fans – I'm not saying this is BETTER than iPhone, only that it's DIFFERENT).
