    [APP] CritiCall - Never miss an important phone call

    We're excited to announce that our second application is now available in the Android Market!

    CritiCall is designed to allow your phone to ring when you get calls from set contacts, even when your phone is set to silent.

    Using CritiCall, you can select any contact as a "critical" contact and your phone will always ring when you receive a call from that person. Easy to turn off when you CAN'T get calls, and includes a customizable auto-resume feature.

    Great if you have kids or if you provide professional services and can't afford to miss calls from important clients.

    Features include:

    • Phone rings when critical contacts call you – even when set to silent/vibrate!
    • Set as many "critical" contacts as you want
    • Set custom times for each Critical Contact
    • Groups
      • Unlimited number of groups (friends, family, work, clients, etc)
      • Unlimited number of contacts within each group
      • Custom settings for the entire group change the settings for all contacts in the group
    • Quick and easy to turn off if you CAN’T have your phone ring
    • Adjustable Auto-resume so you never miss a call
    • Auto-resume override if you don’t want CritiCall to Auto-resume
    • Volume control
    • Customizable defaults to see the information you want to see quickly
    There's a free trial version which is fully functional, but which expires after CritiCall overrides the phone's volume settings 5 times. The full version is $0.99.

    Give it a shot and let us know what you think. We're already working on features for the next update, but we'd love to hear your suggestions.

    CritiCall version 2.3 now available

    CritiCall v2.3 is now available in the Play Store and will be available in the Amazon Appstore as soon as its approved.

    Version 2.3 adds customizable ringtones/text notifications as well as a backup/restore option. We also fixed some bugs.

    A couple other notes - Recent updates to Handcent, GoSMS, and other 3rd party text apps may block CritiCall from providing text notifications. If you are experiencing this issue, please email us at simplyapplied@gmail.com so we can fix this problem.

    Also, we are working to make CritiCall work with WhatsApp as well as working on quite a few new features. If you have any suggestions for features you'd like to see, post them here.

    Finally, an update.

    We've had some issues getting this latest release finalized an updated to the Play Store, but its finally done.

    CritiCall version 3.0 is now available for download from the Play Store.

    What changed -

    Completely re-coded the app to make it more reliable across all devices. Fixed reported bugs. Updated the UI and graphics to be more consistent with the ICS Holo-theme. Improved usability. Added features to the Pro version - Emergency Call Override and Repeating Reminders. Removed the 5 override limitation from the Free (formerly Trial) version.

    Overall the quality of the app has been upgraded significantly and will let us make future updates more timely and add user-requested features. Right now we are working to implement a data backup/restore option which will be included in the next update. Please let us know what you think and feel free to make suggestions for improvements/new features.

    For some reason the images are still showing up full size below even though I've resized them.

    After a longer than expected hiatus...we're back!


    CritiCall 3.1 is now available in Google Play.


    A couple quick things - on some phones you may have to set a custom ringtone in the Notification Settings in order to properly override the volume. This is a function of how these phones (and version of the OS) handle "Silent Mode."


    We've tested this version extensively, especially on devices which experienced issues with version 3.0. However, we definitely want to know if anyone else has problems so we can fix them.


    If you notice any problems with the app, email us at simplyapplied@gmail.com. We respond to EVERY email within 24 hours and most emails are responded to within an hour. You won't experience better customer service - I guarantee it.


    CritiCall is now free and unlimited

    CritiCall 3.2 Released!

    CritiCall 3.2 now available in the Play Store

    This update mostly addressed reported issues and bugs so that CritiCall works more consistently across all devices.

    If you've had a duplicate ringtone issue, there is now an option to fix the double ringtones. Also, selecting this option will allow your phone to play any custom ringtones you have set for your contacts. This option may cause CritiCall to not override the volume properly on some devices depending on how they handle "Silent Mode", so test it out first to ensure it works.

    We will be adding in the ability to set custom ringtones for individual contacts, making the day/time settings more granular, and re-add the widget in an upcoming update.

    Please let us know if you experience any issues.

    Thanks!
