Gesture Control Your Calls with Smart Call Accept

We’ve featured quite a few apps here on the XDA Portal that allow you to answer the phone with just a wave over your device’s proximity sensor. But with the vast amounts of customization that Android affords its users, having more options is always better. XDA Senior Member toi1em hopes to emulate the Air Call-accept feature found in the Samsung Galaxy S 4, as well as add a few more tricks.

What exactly can you do with Smart Call Accept? You can do quite a bit, actually. For starters, you can accept and reject calls. You can also set the app to automatically send an SMS when a call is rejected. You can also activate silent mode, as well as enable speakerphone functionality.

Unlike most other solutions that emulate the SGS4’s native gesture functionality, you can accept, reject, and silence calls with your voice in addition to gestures over the proximity sensor. The app is extremely user friendly, and the developer has big plans for future versions including disabling speakerphone when it detects that the phone is near your face and enabling speakerphone when it is removed from your chubby cheeks.

If you’ve been looking for ways to incorporate gesture control in your own phone, Smart Call Accept’s versatility may make it an ideal choice. Head over to the application thread to give it a shot.
