CallBar (Cydia Tweak) – No Interruption On Phone or FaceTime Calls!

CallBar

Description From Cydia
Don’t let incoming phone or FaceTime calls interrupt what you are doing on you’re doing on your iDevice any longer. CallBar re-designs the incoming phone and video call interface to allow you to use your iDevice while it’s ringing. Choose to answer, decline, or even dismiss the incoming call call depending on your choice. Upon dismissal, the bar will shrink and cover the status bar, a safeguard just in case you choose to pickup the call after all you accidentally dismissed it.

You can answer or decline the call from the dismiss view also. Dismissing the call silences the ring or vibrate, which is done by tapping the banner, hitting the power, or pressing the volume buttons. To re-enable the ring or vibrate, simply tap the banner to bring the banner back up. All the functionalities are available from the springboard, within any application and on the lockscreen. You could be texting, updating twitter, surfing the web, or in the middle of using any application. CallBar allows you to continue what you are doing without interruption and gives you the option to handle the situation with ease.

CallBar – User Guide
 
“The purpose of this guide is to give an overview on how CallBar works and display all the important features and settings for the application. Ideally, this guide will be used as a tool to make your CallBar experience the best possible. Use this to help you become familiar with the different gestures, buttons, and settings for CallBar – over time as the application is updated, this guide will reflect new features and implementations.

Compatibility:
Calls: Compatible with both phone and FaceTime video calls.
Orientation: Compatible on both portrait and landscape orientation (also from lockscreen).
Compatible Devices: All iDevices (iPhone / iPod touch / iPad 1 / iPad 2); excludes AppleTV.
Compatible Firmwares: All firmwares 4.x – 5.x (not available for download on iOS 5 until public release)

How To Use CallBar:
CallBar incorporates different gestures, buttons, and capabilities to make the incoming call function seem native and user intuitive. Displayed below are different scenarios that will happen when using CallBar. Learn how to use CallBar as effectively as possible.

Incoming Calls:

In the following paragraphs, learn how to use all the buttons and gestures in CallBar.

Note: The gestures and buttons below work for both phone calls and FaceTime and on all iDevices (regardless of the illustrated images). Portrait orientation is only shown however as mentioned, landscape is supported. All functionalities of CallBar are available on the lockscreen as well.

Answer: Pressing the “Answer” button will pick up the call, whether it is a phone call or a FaceTime video call. You can answer the call in two ways:
From the above view
Dismiss view (will be covered farther below)

Decline: If you press the “Decline” button, you will have declined the phone call or FaceTime video call. You can decline the call in three ways:
From the above view
Dismiss view (will be covered farther below)
Pressing the Power button twice (first time dismisses the call, second time declines); this option can be changed in the CallBar tab in Settings.app based upon preference (covered later)

Dismiss: For clarification, the dismiss feature is the same as simply tapping the Volume buttons or Power button to silence the call (whether the ringer or vibrate is on). The dismiss incorporation is great if you wish to dismiss the call, not decline it; if you decline the call, the person will know that you declined. If you just dismiss, the phone will continue to ring on their end until it hits your voicemail.

To dismiss the call, simply press the bell button with the line through it on the far right. Upon dismissing, the call bar will shrink, only covering the Status Bar. This allows you to continue using your device while it’s ringing without having the bar block navigation through windows, tabs, and other features on your device. The dismiss view is shown above.
 
You can dismiss a call in three ways:

• Tapping the bell button with the line through it
• Pressing the Power button
• Pressing the Volume buttons (either one)

Note: As mentioned above, you can also answer and decline a call directly from the dismiss view. However, if you wish to bring up the original view again (which also re-enables the ringtone or vibrate), simply tap the banner to re-expand the call bar.

Read below to learn about what each toggle does in the CallBar settings tab.

Enable CallBar: Turn CallBar on and off using this toggle.
Use at Lockscreen: Use this toggle if you wish to have CallBar on the lockscreen or not.
PhoneCall CallBar: This turns on and off functionality for the Phone.app with CallBar (Phone.app on supported devices).
FaceTime CallBar: This turns on and off functionality for FaceTime.
Lock Action Button: This gives you a little customization in regards to the Power button.
 
You have two options with this:

• Declines the call
• Locks the device

Declines the call: If you have this set, than when you hit the Power button twice (first press dismisses), it will decline the call.
Lock the device: If you have this set, than when you hit the Power button twice (first press dismisses), it will lock your screen and still keep CallBar there. It will appear again if the call is still ringing on your lockscreen if you press it again to wake up the screen.

CallBar also displays contact photos on the top left corner of the bar if the contact that is calling has a photo added to their profile in the Contacts.app.

The contact photo will only display if the person that is calling has a contact photo in their profile on your device. Otherwise, the default phone button will appear instead.

Note: Contact photo support is currently limited to phone calls only (iPhone devices)”.
