Answer by Call Gesture: Control Your Calls

Android is the embodiment of that state of constant innovation and customization. Features such as the color of your homescreen launcher, to the launcher itself can be changed and modified at will, so too how you answer calls (you remember that’s what these are for, right?).

You see XDA Member seneca88 has created an innovative way to screen your calls via gesture. The app is named (appropriately) Answer Call by Gesture and allows the user to customize how you answer (or don’t answer) calls through the use of customizable on-screen swipes. According to seneca88:

This app makes use of gesture as privacy protection. You can have secret gestures to answer or reject the phone and no other people can do so. Besides, you may choose what kind of information will be shown on the calling screen, such as:
– Caller photo
– Caller name
– Caller Nickname
– Caller organization
– Caller organization Title

More than that, you can apply the control to all incoming calls or only to those contact persons you have selected for protection.

The app is amazing for those wanting a new way to screen their calls, so head on over to the thread here or download the app.

These Blinkfeed ads appeared after Yelp advertisements began appearing on HTC's Lock screen. Users, expectedly, voiced dissatisfaction all...
