Thread: Shake to answer, turn face down to hang up

  1. #1
    Default Shake to answer, turn face down to hang up
    Just an idea, shake the phone twice to answer an incomming call and turn the phone face down to hang up. I wish i could write the app myself. Sketches has the code to shake and erase the drawing and one of the additional calculators erases your input when you turn the phone face down. If I can help in any way to make this happen please let me know. Thanks

    Ok, imagine that you have your iPhone in the poket and you are sitting ATM so there is 50% that your iPhone is "face down" and that means that calls will be auto denied, or you are walking and before you heard that your iPhone is ringing it have auto accepted a call because you've shook it in your poket

    Well by face down I meant the opposite of for example when the phone lays flat on a table, the only way that is going to happen in your pocket is when you have it in your back pocket of your pans and are sitting on it. Plus you will only hang up a call that you are currently on. As for answering unintentionaly I tried the app sketches to erase a drawing (answering a call) while walking with the phone in my pocket and had to jump twice to make that happen. I am sure that the coder could adjust the sensitivity accordingly. Maybe even the application to only accept input from the sensor while holding the phone upright .

    how about "shake to anserw"?

    heh that could be better you could shake it just like you would with sketchs to anserw and shake to hang up.

    I could see that working a little better.
