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.

Once you get past the curved displays and wraparound Gorilla Glass 4, the most striking feature on these slabs is the...
