    I know this question gets asked a lot, but it seems like such a simple issue that hasn't been executed just right yet, at least not on a stock DX.

    I want a 1x1 widget per contact of my choosing, that when tapped provides me with an option to call or text said contact, in a simple popup window. I've tried every app on the market that claims to do anything similar to this, and have yet to find a decent solution. Contacts! has been suggested, but unless you select a (Singular!) default action, tapping a contact just takes you to their info page. Useless. I also tried "Contacts Widget" which has been suggested, but that didn't work properly on my DX. So phandroids, where is the miracle widget?

    Thanks folks. :)

    I have a Droid, not sure if it's the same but I can do this:
    1. Long press on the home screen.
    2. Choose "Shortcuts."
    3. Choose "Contact."
    4. Pick any contact I want.
    That does exactly what you described. Hope it works for you!

    The stock Contact Quick tasks widget does that as long as it's resized to a 1x1 size.

    On mine it is:

    1) Long press on home screen
    2) Shortcut
    3) Person
    4) Select Contact
    5) Quick Contact (don't select a single number or email address there, at the bottom you will see this option)
