Drupe: A Smarter Way to Communicate With Android Contacts

It is 2016 and communication is no longer limited to calls or SMS. There are now countless apps available for connecting with family and friends, such as WhatsApp, Skype, and Telegram. However, have you noticed that the traditional dialer on our Android devices only supports calls and SMS? If you want to use Skype or WhatsApp to communicate, you have to open the respective app, search for the contact, and then initiate the call or text.

In other words, the contacts and dialer app are outdated. If you rely on more than just calls and SMS for your communication, your dialer needs an upgrade. That is the focus of our discussion today.

Drupe Contacts & Phone Dialer

Drupe is a new and improved Contacts & Phone Dialer with a sleek design and handy features. It allows you to easily interact with your contacts and communication apps. Install the app now to experience its simplicity and the absence of any ads.

Please read the app’s Privacy Policy page to understand the data collected.

After installation, launch the app from the dialer or contact app icon. Alternatively, swipe in from the edge using the 3 dot gesture. This gesture can be customized in the app’s settings menu.

Features of Drupe Contacts & Phone Dialer

Talking about the best feature of the app, on the left you’ll have your favorite contacts and on the right the communication apps installed on your device. Just drag and drop the contact icon onto the communication apps to launch them. The list of apps can be configured from the settings, allowing you to add or remove them based on your usage frequency. You can also swipe left or right to view recent and all contacts and use the same functionality.

Apart from communication apps, you can also set a reminder based on a contact and navigate to them using maps or send them your location. But sometimes, you don’t want to go through the process of swiping and dragging a contact to make a call. The app allows you to choose a default contact method that you can initiate by double tapping the contact icon.

The app includes a feature where, if you can’t reach someone, Drupe will provide a floating window for you to set a reminder or redial later. The ability to snooze is especially useful for important calls.

Conclusion

I am impressed by the Drupe Contact and Dialer app. It has the features I’ve always wanted in a dialer. Some features, like updating contacts’ photos from a connected social network, are still missing, but overall, the app is loaded with great features. Try it out and let me know your thoughts. It’s free, ad-free, and if you’re okay with their privacy policy, you’ll love it.
