I'm Out! - Call interceptor
by: Viktor Åkerskog • 4
Do you have a habit of forgetting your phone at home and worrying about if anybody is trying to call you? Or do you want to be able to leave your expensive Android phone at home while attending a messy outdoor activity, but still know when somebody calls you?
Then I'm Out! is for you.
When I'm Out! is running, it will intercept any incoming calls, mute them to avoid disturbing nearby family members and, if you want it to, send a message to you with the time and caller ID as well as a message to the caller explaining why you cannot pick up the phone. It uses close to no battery at all, since it is only active when a call is incoming.
Of course, if you have already forgotten your phone at home, it will be quite difficult to get to it and start the application.
This is why I'm Out! can be operated almost entirely using text messages sent to your phone; you can start and stop the service, set the explanatory message as well as the alert number, all from somebody else's phone.
For suggestions about added and altered functionality and bug reports, please use e-mail rather than setting low score reviews, this makes it easier for me to overview and enables me to reply to you.
