    Hey all,

    I'm wondering if anyone has the skills to make (or at least say it can't be done) an app that allows access to the iPhone dailer from the lock screen?

    I find it a bit of a nuisance that it takes a minimum of 2 actions to acces the dialer - and thats only if you have left the dialer screen open and then pushed the sleep button meaning that that app is front and centre when you unock again. It's even more if it is not the last app open which is usually the case.

    ANyway, I would like to see, when the phone is idle, no music playing, the dailer appear on the lock screen with one push of the home button. It would probably have to have the same operation as the current dialer app in that pressing "015" brings up the little pop up with posible number choices from your contacts..

    Failing that even access to you favorite numbers would be acceptable.

    My coding skills are no where near good enough to do that (I could mock one up in Photoshop lol) so does anyone think they can do it/it can be done?

    I did look around for a simlar app already in existance but could find none.

    Why can't you just use the Emergency Call button??

    I think the app called Kate by ripdev has something like this.

    Kate messes so many things up, it's not funny.

    Too right, wouldn't touch kate with your iPhone.

    No other solutions no?

    I'm bumping this to garner some interest.

    I don't have the skills to make it on my own (nor mac to do it on)

    C'mon Lockscreen Dialer - someone champion it - even if its just a favorites list or something
