There are sometimes when mobile devices play dirty tricks on us and what it had to be something easy becomes something infinitely more complicated because of a rebel device who's doing its best to run out of battery or avoid signal detection. Fortunately, this kind of misbehavior can be predicted and you can act accordingly beforehand.
Phonnix tries to solve many of those usual problems caused by the bad habit that communication devices have to leave you incommunicated. First off, you can activate the option to redirect calls to a second phone of yours or to any computer with the tie-in add-on.
Likewise, SMS can be resent to your email, Evernote or even to your Facebook account (landing on the private message inbox)
Lastly, the app includes some additional features to remotely control your device.
On the other hand, it might be that this app isn't suited for everyone, because it requires to deploy a device on host mode (or install the plug-in on your computer) while the other, the 'slave' one must activate the "client" mode. Both modes are activated through the app, but it would be handy you practice first just in case you don't face an emergency and have to set it up for the first time.
Regarding this, perhaps the option is that which allows to automatically initiate the app when battery is about to expire, so henceforth all calls and SMSs are redirected to wherever you previously specified.
Anyway, a extremely useful app whose only flaw is its unintuitive mechanics and the need to toy with it for a brief while before actually trusting it important stuff.
Recommended for people really living on the fly, or anyone who feels that it can be handy to have always ready a B plan.
