Picture this scenario: you’re playing Temple Run 2 in your break, and you’re just about to make a new high score or to finish a challenge, and someone calls you. You talk for a few minutes and when you hang up, your smartphone will re-open the game, and you’ll have to do it all over again some other time. Frustrating right?

Well, as someone who was in this situation more than few times, I can appreciate any app that will allow me to quickly answer the phone, while still doing what I was doing before. The app that offers a solution to this problem is Call PopOut, created by the team that has brought Root Uninstaller, Deep Sleep Battery Saver and many other apps to the Android ecosystem, which are all wonderful apps to have on your device.

What is Call PopOut and how it works?

Think of Call PopOut like a call prompt instead of the default dialer app that usually comes up when you receive a call. Basically what this means, is that whenever you are using an app and a call comes, you only see a small pop-up on the screen that allows you to either reject or take the call, without exiting the app you were using. This is pretty similar to what LG has done with their customized UI in their latest smartphones like the G2.

The app is easy to set up and use, and it gives users multiple settings so they can customize the experience how they see fit. Once you open the app, you can see multiple settings, starting with “Mode“, where users can set up when the service will be active. There is a setting for enabling the service to work when any other app is active, or to set up your own app list, where the service will be activated.

Furthermore, Call PopOut allows users to set position, size and color of the popup as they wish, however, some of these settings are only available to premium users. These customizations make the service more integrated with different color schemes that some users might have.

At this moment, the app can be used with some Android smartphones, but we’re expecting the developers to add support for more platforms in the future. Also, there have been some problems on rooted devices, in which case the users should convert the service to a system app.

For more information about supported devices and other changes, please read the description of the app on the Google Play Store or check out the dedicated thread on the XDA Developers forum.

I often wonder, where is technology heading? What do all of these advances mean for us and for our future? I sometimes miss the days when I didn’t know how to use a floppy disk, or how a computer CPU works, but now, until I find an answer to my questions, I’ll keep tracking these advances and show everything I find to those who share my interests.
