    Button vice slider for answering phone?

    Anyone know of an app/etc. out there that will provide you with a button to push in order to answer the phone versus using the slider? The slider takes too much time and sometimes I have to do it twice or three times to get it right.

    Thnx!

    Widget locker allows you to use the menu key (and others i think) to unlock

    But that's only to unlock the phone. The OP wants this feature for answering a phone call, which also requires a slide, regardless of having the WidgetLocker app or not.

    Yes. The app you're looking for is called Easy Answer Button

    Here's a link to it on AppBrain >>> Easy Answer Button - Android app on AppBrain

    Be sure to read the comments for this app though... the reviews seemed to be somewhat mixed.

    If you want a physical button (the camera button) to answer a call there's an app called mylock phone tools.

    Interesting! I didn't know about MyLock Phone Tools. It seems to have better reviews than the suggestion I posted above (Easy Answer Button).

    For the OP... here's AppBrain link >>> myLock phone tools - BETA - Android app on AppBrain

    Downloaded and gave a test run from the home phone. It works great so far...exactly what I was looking for. Furthermore, if you enable it in the options menu, you can have a reject button in addition to the answer button.
