CallBar tweak for iPhone has been released and is now available for download via Cydia Store for $3.99 only. Loaded with wealth of advantages this cydia tweak don’t let incoming or FaceTime calls interrupt while you’re browsing, playing games, texting, updating Twitter, or in the middle of using any application.
The video call interface is designed in such a way that whenever some call you, a small bar drops from the top of your iPhone screen detailing who’s calling you and gives you with three choices – You can either answer, or decline, or dismiss the incoming call. In order to answer just swiping right and to decline swiping left on callbar.
As soon as you dismiss the phone call, the top-bar shrinks above the status bar – giving you yet another chance to pick up the call, in case you accidentally dismissed it.
The feature comes very handy. 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.
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 only appears if the person who is calling has a contact photo in their profile on your iPhone.
Once you have dismissed the call by tapping the banner, your iPhone will stop ringing or vibrate. Alternatively, you can even press either the Power button, or the Volume buttons. To re-enable the ring or vibrate, simply tap the banner to bring the banner back up. The features are readily available from the SpringBoard, and on the lockscreen.
