'RaiseToCall' Lets You Call the Person You're Texting By Raising the Phone to Your Face
Want to add a useful new feature to your iPhone? If so, it’s time to check out a new jailbreak tweak called RaiseToCall by iOS developer Kaushal Trivedi.
RaiseToCall is a genius tweak that makes it so you can raise your iPhone to your face in the middle of text messaging or iMessaging someone to initiate a phone call with that person. The tweak works with Apple’s Messages application, as well as the insanely popular biteSMS messaging solution.
The tweak uses the iPhone’s front-facing proximity sensor to detect when the iPhone comes in contact with your face – the same proximity sensor that turns off the iPhone display when you place your iPhone against your face during a phone call.
Because the feature seems so useful, I'm shocked to see that Apple hasn't implemented something like this into iOS already. It is the small, useful features like this that could make the iPhone so much better if Apple would just listen to the jailbreak community.
RaiseToCall doesn't come with any options to configure, and it requires iOS 6 to install. Because it relies on the Phone application, the tweak is only for the iPhone.
Requirements: iPhone running iOS 6
Developer: Kaushal Trivedi

So if you have this tweak installed and whilst in the Messages app and you put the phone face down on a table, will in ring the person you're texting?

That's a neat feature but one I doubt I'd ever use so I won't pay for it. Very cool though.

Do you guys know if this would waste more battery? Seeing as the proximity sensor would be activated all the time while using messages?

A toggle on/off is a must... Doesn't seem to have one.

I "think" it was not only a feature on samsung phones, but a stock android 4.0 feature all together..... I "think".
Its also nice to see that Aumz is able to appreciate tech from the other side, just as we all should. I hang around iOS and android forums all the time and I can't stand the blind, fanboyism that exists on both sides. Its just stupid.
