Hopefully you've all heard about the Galaxy S3 feature they touted at the live event that was named "Direct Call." What the feature does is when you receive a text or are in the process of a chat via text message you can hold the phone up to your ear and the phone will call that contact without further input on the user's part. Pretty cool and useful if you ask me. Especially while driving when i don't have time to type out a "i'm driving, call you back" text, even if it is a quick-reply preset message.
I'd like to see how the devs are able to port this feature and if it's a simple feature to create from scratch right now without even seeing the S3's software. Seems like it could be a relatively easy "trick" to implement, but then again i'm not a developer. All I can tell you is that the S3 seems to just use the proximity sensor and then read the contact information in the current thread. Anywho, what's everyone think?
note: I couldn't find a dedicated thread so i thought i would create one.
