    Default Favorite Contacts Widget

    I'm coming from the S3 which had a "Favorite Contacts Widget" that was a 3x3 grid that showed me 9 of my favorite contacts. With the S5 this widget is gone. I looked for one in the Play Store but none are as good as the one on the S3.

    Anyone have any ideas on how to find the S3 widget again?

    Thanks.

    You dont need it since you can easily create any size/shape grid by using the Add shortcut to Home screen option on your favorites screen

    you can make a folder with different contacts in widgets.i make one for texting and another for calling. I put those folders on my bottom bar.

    I hate that they took away favorite settings, apps,and contact widgets. I was able to use the toolbox feature for five favorite apps but I am using nova launcher for the favorite contact widget.I also at one point just made a folder for the homescreen ( as another poster mentioned). There is a app called contacts + widgets that's pretty good.

    Great, but can't see how you did this? Can create a folder but can't see how to add the individual contacts to it? It can only add Apps?
