One of the most missed features in Windows Phone is the "Smart Dial". If you are coming from old windows mobile or other OS that provides smart dialing, you must be missing this neat feature. Smart Dialer is just made to complement your phone experience with such a neat feature.

Smart Dialer provides an easy-to-use interface to search your contacts with minimal taps; you may also write a non-contact number and dial it directly from the application. In the settings, you can specify the number of search results to be displayed.

Smart Dialer version 1.0 was a success but it was somehow slow at the first load. The new version 1.5 is at least 3 times faster than the previous version and providing simple but nice touches to the overall experience of the application making it just smarter.

Smart Dialing basically lets you find and dial a specific contact in a few very easy steps, by filtering out Contacts on your Device. Let’s say I want to call Brandon, what should I do? I start typing once the numbers of the letters that correspond to Brandon: 2 for B, 7 for R, 2 for B, just like T9. As I keep typing in the numbers, Smart Dialing keeps filtering out my Contacts one by one, as soon as I enter information just to let me with one Contact filtered at the end: the one that matches my criteria of “Bra” (“272”)

The application is available as a trial in the marketplace and the full version costs 1.49$.
