zapDial 2.0 – Nominated for the EUROPRIX Multimedia Awards 2010


You know the situation? You just want to quickly call a number from your address book but your attention is dedicated to other activities. How to dial the number in a quick way?
With a search through a long list? With the help of speech recognition? Yes, if the recognition works and doesn‘t confront you with wrong interpretations, then this could be the solution for you. But if you don‘t feel happy on trying various pronounciations of names to make the speech recognition work, what would you do? Browsing again through lists of names, which is too long-winded, too detailed and too time consuming?
No – zapDial is the solution.


With zapDial you find quickly and in an easy way the telephone number of your favorite contact, without searching the lists. On the basis of mapped gestures, which you draw in your own individual style on the display, your contacts will be called by a simple movement on the touchscreen.
Timeconsuming searches and error-prone touches in lists will not bother you anymore.
A vibrating phone informs you when the app is ready, so you don‘t even have to look on the display. Just make a gesture on the display and your iPhone will connect you to the selected contact.

How does zapDial work?

Select a contact from your address book and choose an individual gesture, which will be mapped to the contact‘s telephone number. Keep in mind that a gesture consists of a single stroke.
Setup is finished and you are ready to start. Just start the application and draw the gesture on the touchscreen to call a contact. A switchable feature allows you to choose calling a contact or sending a text.

Basic features:
gesture recognition for quick dialing
record function for individual gestures
direct link to your address book contacts
switchable options for user interface feedback

What’s New in this Version:
search in address book, record audio hints for your contacts, user interface improvements, new layout
