Frustrating Always reindexing now. It used to work great.

Constant Re-Indexing This is possibly the most frustrating app ever. Every single time I launch the app, it performs an index. Every single time! It takes at least 90 seconds every single time. For an app that's supposed to save time, this sure does the opposite. This is a real shame as the developer's other apps are amazing.

A good potential seemingly wasted I concur with another reviewer here that this one must be one of the most frustrating (and infuriating at times) apps out there. I paid for it on the back of my good experience with SwipePad and its addons, but honestly I regret doing so. I would LOVE to have Keypad S as my default dial-it-all app on my homescreen, but it just does not cut the deal for me. A must-have feature of an app like this one must be it should NOT take any time to retrieve it when you need it, i.e. it must be INSTANT-ON. Instead, Keypad S keeps re-indexing the whole bloody system every other time I open it up, taking precious seconds. As a result, I resort to the more-limited AppDialer every bloody time. @Developer: I see this app has not been updated for almost a year now. Are you still interested in developing it or not?
