CallBar Guide and FAQ
Read below to learn how to use CallBar more efficiently.
Q: What gestures does CallBar recognize?
A: CallBar responds to the following gestures:
* Some options apply only for CallBar v2.0 and greater
In general, tapping* or swiping right is "Accept" and swiping left is "Decline", and it applies in many other cases
(e.g. when we are in a call and a second call comes in, swiping right accepts the second call and swaps calls, whereas swiping left declines it)
Q: What happened to Answer/Decline buttons option in CallBar 2?
Since CallBar 2 responds to taps for answering, there is no need for buttons. You can tap CallBar to answer the call, or swipe left/press sleep button to decline it.
Q: What does "Use CallBar for all outgoing calls" do?
A: When this option is ON, any call made from any application on the device is handled by CallBar: CallBar banner appears dialing the call, as if you had dialed it from CallBar's dialer interface.
This way, you have your device available for anything you might be working on while dialing.
If this option is OFF, an outgoing call will bring up the Phone application's interface. This does not allow you to browse around the device unless you exit the Phone application, leaving you without any in-call options.
Q: What does Answer In-Place do?
A: When this option is ON, answering a call from CallBar does not open the native phone application.
It answers the call staying at the application you were at the moment, activating all necessary telephony services so you can continue
If this option is OFF, answering a call will open the native phone application and handle the call there,
interrupting you from what you were doing (which is not what callbar actually offers :) ).
Q: What does Dialer Activation Method do?
A: It assigns an Activator action to bring up CallBar's Dialer interface.
Note: This is the only way to bring up CallBar's Dialer and place new calls using CallBar.
Q: Why does it show an error when I try to choose a Dialer Activation Method?
A: Most probable is that Activator is not installed. You need to manually install Activator from Cydia in order to assign activation methods.
Q: My mobile carrier provides a visual voicemail interface. Why does Dialer's voicemail button dial the actual number instead?
A: CallBar does not provide visualization of the voicemail interface at the moment. If you need a visual voicemail ,you can use the native phone application.
Note: You can always disable the voicemail button from settings.
Q: Is there an SBSettings toggle to turn CallBar on and off quickly?
A: Yes, you can download CallBar Toggle from Cydia for free.
