Ability to tap and call phone numbers from any field

Post by Ram8 » Tue Nov 01, 2016 11:22 am

The native phone app contact file [and most of EPIMs competitors] allows the user to tap a phone number from any field, such as the Notes field, which opens the phone dialer and inserts the number. I have hundreds of contacts with comments and phone numbers in the Notes field that I do not want to enter as a seperate contact. When traveling it is especially important to be able to "tap and dial" from this field. Right now I am having to try and memorize the number or write it down, then switch over to the native phone app and dial it - extreemly cumbersome. Adding this feature will be an important step towards full integration with the native phone app.
