Imagine you're surfing the Web or playing Temple Run 2 for the umpteenth time. Sometimes in life there are things that deserve full concentration without the needless distractions of phone calls and text messages or anything of that sort. Unfortunately for Android users, a disruptive phone call can mean the difference between life and death (in a game).
Small Call by Apps Falyf thinks it has the solution. The app displays incoming phone calls and texts in a small pop-up widget on your phone instead of interrupting your current activity.
Having a feature like this while using GPS, for example, is especially useful, and one I personally appreciate the most since my smartphone is my main navigation unit.
You can tweak various settings like the opacity of the notification and setting custom text responses at the touch of a button. In testing, performance varied from app to app. While it worked fine for most stock apps like e-mail and maps, performance-intensive games seemed to noticeably freak out a bit or take a ring or two before activating. Apps Falyf actually encourages users to reach out to the respective developers for any related app crashes.
Small Call isn't perfect by any means but when it works, it's an appreciated feature that leaves us wondering why no one came up with it sooner. For 99 cents, it's a useful tweak worth downloading, but be warned that your mileage may also vary.
Google and others said it couldn't be done. After months of development we've proven them all wrong. Interrupting phone calls are a thing of the past thanks to Small Call for Android. Don't let incoming calls or texts interrupt what you're doing on your Android smart phone any longer! You could be texting, updating Twitter or Facebook, surfing the web, sending out an e-mail or in the middle of a serious game of Angry Birds, when you suddenly get a new call or text message. Small Call allows you to continue what youre doing with minimal interruption; a smart app for your smart phone. Small Call has been intelligently designed to work with other applications' exception handling criteria to deliver the best possible experience. Some less well designed applications are developed without exception handling in mind, and may have slightly different effect under the reigns of Small Call. As an example think of when a YouTube video is interrupted by an incoming call and the video is completely reset. These interruptions are few and far between, and if you encounter an application that does not interact with Small Call flawlessly please request the application developer enhance their app with proper exception handling routines.Recent changes:Introductory Promotion!$0.99Content rating: Everyone
