    Default 'Sleep2EndCall for CallBar' Lets You End Calls With the Power Button Instead of a Swipe


    Chances are many of you are fans of CallBar, an alternative calling interface for iOS that offers banner notifications and a less obtrusive in-call interface for multitasking. If so, then you're familiar with its controls, such as swiping left on the CallBar bar to end a phone call.

    Alternatively, if you want a different method to end a call without even having to look at the display to do so, you can install a new CallBar add-on called Sleep2EndCall for CallBar by iOS developer Ron Thakrar.

    As the name suggests, the add-on will allow you to press the sleep button at the top of the iOS device when in the middle of a call with CallBar to end the call rather than swiping left on the CallBar bar.

    It’s arguable that both methods take around the same amount of time, but by using the sleep button instead of using a touch screen gesture, you can actually end a call while the iPhone is still against your face rather than pulling the phone away from your face for the display to un-dim, and then performing the swipe gesture.

    Although time isn't much of a high point for this add-on, it's still nice to have the option to choose between a hardware button or a swipe gesture on the display.

    The tweak will only work if you have CallBar installed – it is a separate purchase of $3.99. If you want to download Sleep2EndCall for CallBar, it's available at no cost in Cydia's BigBoss repository.

    Name: Sleep2EndCall for CallBar
    Price: FREE
    Version: 1.0-23
    Requirements: CallBar
    Repo: BigBoss
    Developer: Ron Thakrar

    I think the original iPhone OS did this. Callbar must override it.

    This is for CallBar. You can't perform this action with CallBar. This add-on makes it possible.

    does the tweak allow either sleep button or swipe for ending calls? or does it replace the old method with the new one?

    btw, i had no idea how to end calls with callbar! all this time, i've been waiting for the other guy to hang-up.

    Ah, I gotcha, didn't realize CallBar overrode the original setting for that.

    Hi greyhounds,

    Dev here. Right now it completely overrides it. When I get the free time, I will add a simple preference pane in the Settings panel to enable or disable it (so you can return control to the original CallBar method if you so wish). That'll probably be this weekend or the next.

    Regards,

    Ron
