Taking a look at most phones, their dialers if not heavily-skinned alternative, is just the plain stock Android dialer app, most of them just do their work as a means to input a number and connect you to your contacts, it’s a bonus if it offers security features such as blocking; in short most stock dialers are pretty similar perhaps thinking inside the box, that’s where Drupe separates itself. This alternative dialer app literally takes the term “one touch away” and “always connected” and applies it to how it functions. The concept is dead simple but this app is the first one to execute it properly.
With Drupe, Everyone is Literally Within Reach
Drupe keeps everything sleek and stylish, it features several themes to customize your dialer as well as personalization options, such as what shows up when you open up the app to how your dots, applications, and your dialer itself behaves. Opening up the app you get to choose between three default views: all contacts, favorites, and recents. The first two are self-explanatory as they perform the same function as the stock contacts app. Recents however pulls all recent communication, including twitter direct messages, and Facebook messenger messages, in addition to text messages and recent calls. The app is presented with animations whenever they pop up but they seem to suffer in some cases. At the bottom are buttons to bring up the dialer, a search box, a plus button to add contacts, reminders, notes, and blocked numbers. Next to the plus button is the settings cog that lets you access the various customization and personalization settings.
What makes the app great is its “Dots” feature and the clever shortcuts and pop ups that it integrates into your system. Drupe for Android allows you to be a simple tap and swipe away from everyone literally, it has a floating button that’s present depending on how you set it up, and invoking the floating button quickly opens up the app. The dots view is separated into two parts, “apps” and contacts, how it works is basically just like connecting dots; just drag a contact to an “app” such as the call icon and it quickly places a call towards the contact, drag a contact to the messenger app and it brings up the contact’s messenger chat head. All of this done via the app and is always accessible as long as you have the floating button enabled. In addition, it has an additional pop up window that shows up during certain events such as an unanswered call and prepares options for you to redial, send a message, and more.
Drupe is like the app you never knew you wanted, it’s already an Editor’s Choice app on the Play Store; it’s free so give it a try to see for yourself how convenient it is.
