How to Go Old School on Your Samsung Galaxy S3 with a Rotary Dialer
Out with the old, in with the new—but sometimes that phrase is reversed. Just take a look around and you'll see some high-top fades from the '90s and some hipster wearing his great grandmother's Depression-era reading glasses.
So, no matter how many new phones or styles come out, the nostalgia for the past is always present, especially in the dialer department, where sleekness and efficiency have led to boringness.
After installing the app, you can open it up and starting dialing old-school style.
The app doesn't really need any setup. Just select a number and then drag it to the silver clip. Repeat until the complete number has been entered and then hit the green call button in the center. You can also automatically add your contacts and call instantly if you want.
Obviously, using the Rotary Dialer is not the fastest method for calling up your friends, family, and business associates, but retro is alway cool.
By hitting the menu button, you can bring up the app's preferences. Here you can adjust the sound, vibration, and call log limits. You can also leave the developer feedback and write an app review.
If you want just the rotary look, but don't want the extra effort, you can enable Quick Dial, which allows you to just tap on the numbers like most modern dialers.
