As a previous Android user, I’ve experienced some difficulties when answer calls using the slider function on Android phones. Sometimes they just don’t respond or you end up sliding it the wrong way. ShakeCall for Android phones brings the really cool feature of shaking the phone to answer or end a call instead of using the slider or the normal function keys.
You might wonder what might happen if you’re running and you get a call, will that answer because the phone is shaking? Of course not, do you think the developers won’t have thought of that and many other circumstances such as that. ShakeCall provides many functions that you can use to adjust the sensitivity so that only when you shake it with your hand will it answer or end a call.
That’s not it, you can also use ShakeCall and answer your phone just by placing it near your ear. This only works on phones with Proximity sensors, which almost every smartphone has these days. However to be able to use this feature you’ll have to enable the Shake to Answer feature in the settings. ShakeCall has many settings that will enable you to set things like Shaking Sensitivity Value and Proximity Sensor Value. These settings will help you when you want to answer or end a call.
So once again, here’s what this tiny little application ShakeCall can do:
- Receive and Disconnect the Phone with a shake
- Answer calls when you place the phone near your ear. (Proximity Sensor)
- Corrects the problem when sometimes the screen is still blank once you move it away from your ear
- You can test your settings using the Virtual Phone Sensor Test
There are few other features that you can use, find out more about it once you install it on your phone as they are phone dependent.
ShakeCall is a free application and can be downloaded from the Android Market. It requires Android 1.6 and above.
