One of the things I miss most about my Windows Mobile phone, (besides tethering) is the smart dialer, which is an incredibly efficient way of searching your phone book.
DeadKnight must have felt the same way, as he cooked up a simple app which replicates the smart dialing functionality in Windows Mobile.
The app needs a Mango handset however, as NoDo and earlier does not support accessing the phone book.
The app can be downloaded from XDA-Developers and at the moment needs a developer-unlocked handset, but there is in fact no reason why this app could not appear in Marketplace, something we wish the developer would get to ASAP.
