Make your phone a phone again.
Putting a dialpad on your desktop makes it really easy to call (or SMS) phone numbers. The nicely transparent widget works with all sorts of wallpapers. Pair it with Speed Dial Old School for extra quick calling and texting.

phones and OS
This app works on all current Android OS (1.5, 1.6, 2.0, 2.1 - cupcake to froyo) and HVGA/WVGA/QVGA phones (G1, Nexus One, Droid, Tattoo).
On Android 1.5 (Cupcake) in landscape mode, the buttons will be sized incorrectly. Should work fine for all other versions. No ETA for a fix at this time.
major version updates
v1.1: Android 1.5 force close fix
v1.2: Android 1.5 clipped button fix
