For continued support, additional features and ICS compatibility checkout the Handsfree Conference Caller.
For MMI users only. Do not download if you are not an MMI user, it will not run.
The Conference Caller app alerts you via notifications that you need to either start or join a conference call. Clicking a notification automatically dials you into the meeting. It works by reading your Google calendar and looking for a passcode in either the meeting's location or description. If you are the organizer, it will start the meeting. Notifications are sent only once and clear automatically when the meeting ends.
Minimal setup required. You need to enter your passcode and leader pin for starting a conference call. It's optional if you want to create a list of on demand contacts, since the passcode and dial-in for joining a call is read directly from the meeting invite.
The app itself maintains a list of the currently running conference calls. This is especially useful while driving as the list auto-refreshes allowing you to either start or join a conference call with a single tap.
Settings available, from the menu, for changing the default Google calendar and customizing the join and start call tone patterns.
As an added bonus, a widget is included for starting conference calls with a single tap from the screen.
