As more developers are updating their apps with Material Design elements, we're starting to see a plethora of beautiful new apps on the Play Store. But which ones are the best? Let us know what you think the best looking apps on Android are and why.
Change Your Call Screen with Ultimate Call Screen HD
Do you wear glasses? Is your vision not as good as it could be? Do you like seeing huge pictures of your friends so you are reminded of what they look like when they call? Do you have “friends” who use iPhones and brag about their awesome answer screen? Well, XDA Senior Member lowveld has a solution for you. Lowveld has created the Ultimate Call Screen HD call screen replacement. What can we say about Ultimate Call Screen HD other than it is, well, ultimate. It allows you to customize each contact’s call screen. You can select a different High Definition picture for each contact. That picture will then be displayed in full screen when he or she calls.
But that is not all. You can set up block lists to block contacts. You can set the app to react to phone movements. In the Free version you can ignore a call by placing the phone face down, and the call will disappear as if by magic. The Pro version adds the option to change the placing the phone face down action to just mute the ringer or activate the speakerphone. The Pro version also adds theming capabilities and the ability to block all incoming calls, block unknown callers, and create a whitelist which will flip the blocking procedure. Instead of selecting contacts to block, you will be selecting contacts to not be blocked. Lowveld says the Whitelist feature is “Very useful for defining a set of contacts able to call you no matter what, and block everyone else.”
Ultimate Call Screen HD is a feature packed call screen replacement program. If you are looking for a call screen replacement and are running Android versions 2.1 and above, which you should be, then give the application a try. Fill your call screen with large pictures of your friends with Ultimate Call Screen HD. More information can be found in the application’s thread.
