This app was discontinued in early 2011 and is no longer available due to Android fragmentation problems.
Ever wished you could turn off your ringer but still let your loved ones reach you? That's what CallShield does. Maintain a list of "Important" or "Blocked" callers and CallShield will manage your ringer for you.
When your ringer is in vibrate or silent mode and an important person calls or sends you a text it will automatically activate the ringer to notify you of the event, and then revert back to the mode it was previously.
Want any of your friends to be able to text you important things without adding them all to the important list? Just tell them to add an exclamation mark to the text (that's the default.) You can customize the special code to whatever you want and optionally allow those text messages to override your ringer and ring through.
In addition, CallShield includes a bedside clock with sleep mode. Activate sleep mode and your ringer is silenced, but you can optionally allow important calls and texts to override it. This feature is great for anyone who is on call at night but doesn't want bothered by anyone else.
If you place CallShield in sleep mode, as soon as you answer an important call or exit the screen by touch it automatically disables sleep mode so you can't accidentally go through the day with your ringer off.
Frequently Asked Questions
Does CallShield have to be open to work? No, CallShield works in the background. The only reason to open the main program is to change your settings or use it as a bedside clock.
I purchased the Pro version but it still thinks I'm not authorized Sometimes the Google License service can take a few tries before it catches on. Try closing the app and reopening it, then check the About dialog to see if it now thanks you for purchasing. If that doesn't work, close the app and try it again in about two minutes.
