How would you like to escape from a boring conversation group or from some who just can’t stop talking incessantly without realizing the emergency you may have? While such situations should be handled by a firm response without the aid of an external agent, sometimes, ByeByeCaller from ThinkChange does come in handy.
When ByByeCaller is started, you get the message “There will be a fake incoming call in 10 second(s), Activate?”. When you press “Yes”, 10 seconds later you get an incoming call that rings long enough for you to disentangle yourself from the situation you are in. The Activation Delay can be configured – so that the fake call comes in a few seconds later or sooner.
The Fake Name can be changed too, to something you want – like “the boss” or “the wife” or something that shows how important the call is. The funny thing is you could even configure the Network from which the fake call originates.
But I couldn’t stop the ringing after I activated the fake call. I had to wait for it to die out, which about a few seconds but I would have liked to stop it with the Red button if I wanted to.
ByeByeCaller can be downloaded here for a trial or purchased at $9.95.
ByeByeCaller is worth a look. It might be highly useful for some people and not useful at all for others. The need is very subjective. The application has a simple implementation and good usability. I’ll give it 3 of 5.
