After a longer period, the Fast Dialer app has been updated with some new features and minor fixes.
The main new feature is the possibility to directly dial a number, send an SMS or add to contacts the clipboard contents. So you can copy a number from anywhere in your phone, from the Internet etc. and then use it directly in Fast Dialer, just long press on the number entry field, and you’ll be presented the options.
The other small but crucial update is the support for Android 4.4.
