How to make calls faster on your BlackBerry Storm


PicureDial is a convenient method for making quick calls that bypasses searches in your contact list. It saves the time of searching long contact lists for your frequently made calls. The app works well once set up properly, but the setup can be painful. With a max. of 24 contacts and only one e-mail address permitted per contact, it does have its drawbacks. It also does not maintain a sync with your contact list – but rather keeps its own database. This app is good for those who make frequent calls to the same people. It could use a few more features to make it a top performer.
