Launch phone dialer from phone number field?

Postby jfh » Tue Jan 25, 2011 7:32 pm

This is probably a new feature request, but if I have a field in a database that is used as a phone number, is there any way to get the phone dialer to launch to dial that number?

Indeed that is a feature request, and something that is indeed planned for development this year. I plan on implementing the same way I was able to add to the iPhone version- via the External field type. So that means you'll later just be able to add an external field type to the database and that field type will point to the text value of the phone number as stored elsewhere (in the text field like you have now). There would also be external fields for photos, visiting links, etc. Exciting times ahead!

I use this feature on an iPhone. My current Android device is a non phone (NookHD+).

I was wondering if this feature is available for the Android phones and if I need to change anything in the iPhone version of the database to work on an Android phone?

Hi there,

That is what I am working on right now! So while it's not possible yet, it should be by the end of summer or early fall.
