    I would like to setup a shortcut that when I press the icon it goes directly to the phones dialer pad and pulls up the keypad for immediate dialing. Could someone help me do this? I had a shortcut on my nexus 5 but cant remember how it was setup.

    Press a blank spot on the homepage. Look in shortcuts or apps (or applications).

    Think he means the new google dialer bro. As far as i know theres no way to make it go straight to the dialpad.
    I could upload the old dialer if you want?

    I actually have one set up on my nexus 5 but I'm not sure how it was set up. Trying to duplicate it for my wife's phone.

    Since that dialer is currently exclusive to the Nexus 5 (maybe a few other Nexus devices, can't really remember right now), I've moved your thread to that device's discussion forum. Hopefully some fellow N5 users will be able to help you out :)

    Get the dialapp from the play store.Much better IMO and does exactly what you're looking for

    The Xposed Framework with GravityBox allows you to, upon pressing the phone icon, go straight to dialpad.
