    Default [Review] TelOnNotification - Make Phone Calls From Notification Center

    This is a nice Notification Center widget that lets you make calls.

    You have an iPhone, but where's the Phone? Is it on your home page, your second page, your third page? Is it on your dock? I don't know! Well now, you never have to not know again. If you need to make a call but you find that looking for your Phone application is a pain in the rear, then you'll appreciate this new jailbreak widget for Notification Center that allows you to make phone calls but sliding down Notification Center, entering a phone number, and tapping the call button. This widget is free and has been dubbed TelOnNotification by iOS developer timetravel0.

    The widget has a decent looking GUI (graphical user interface). There have been a lot of widgets that are completely atrocious compared to the way that we might expect Apple to implement a widget. This one keeps it nice and simple and best of all, it's small. It doesn't take up a ton of room. Before you actually start typing in a phone number to dial, the widget looks as it does in the screenshot below:



    After you tap on that bar that says, "Telephone number to call" the iOS number pad appears with a call button in the bottom left. The number pad is demonstrated by the first image in this review. It looks very eye-candy-ish and I'm sure that a lot of people if not most would like to add this widget to their collection for iOS 5's Notification Center.

    There are some prerequisites to using it. For example, you cannot dismiss the number pad easily when you are in Notification Center. You have to press the home button, which exits Notification Center completely, just to put the number pad away. So this means that you shouldn't tap on the widget unless you really want to make a call otherwise that number pad will get in the way of you viewing your other widgets. Another thing is that you need to know someone's phone number by heart, otherwise you won't be able to call them. This widget doesn't support address book integration, so you can't go through your Contacts application and pick a contact that you've added in the past to call.

    Do those prerequisites make it useless? Absolutely not. It's still a quick way to dial a phone number if you don't want to fumble around for your Phone application. You will need to be running iOS 5 to download this widget because it depends on Notification Center to function. You can enable the widget or disable it at any time by simply dragging it in and out of Notification Center in the Settings application under 'settings>notifications>in notification center'. I think this is a nice thing to have if you're an iPhone power-user like me.

    The clear background is FastBlurredNotificationCenter (by Ryan Petrich on his beta repo) and the dots are part of IntelliScreenX (by Intelliborn).

    Is there anyone who really doesn't know where the Phone app is? On their iPhone?
