Answer Calls without Touch with Air Call Answer
Remember that scene in Minority Report, where Tom Cruise controls the futuristic UI with various gestures done in free space? I don’t even remember too much of the actual plot of the movie, as the movie came out during my last year in high school, but I do remember one thing: Controlling things with air gestures is cool! I’m not alone, however, as it has proven to be suitable inspiration for many interface paradigms created since.
Samsung has added somewhat similar gestures into its latest flagships to accomplish various tasks. But wouldn’t it be nice if all Android users had access to some fun gesture control? Thankfully, XDA Forum Member smart_desk has done exactly that with his latest app Air Call Answer.
As the app’s name so aptly describes, Air Call Answer allows you to… Answer your Calls in the Air. So how do you control it? The gesture to answer a call is simple enough. All you have to do is wave your hand over your device’s proximity sensor or simply bring the phone to your ear—just like magic.
To get started, simply head over to the application thread. Be sure to leave some feedback for the developer to help in fine tuning the sensitivity.

HTC has just released three new blind test adverts comparing app loading speed, audio and selfies. Whilst you are surely astounded that HTC won every time, the tests were incredibly biased and their release shows something concerning about the company and how they are performing in the current market. One of the many reasons companies tend to utilize blind trials is when they feel that their product is comparable or better than its competitors. This leads to the assumption...
