In the Play Store, we find applications that are very useful and others that are not so useful. And then there is a third group that, although very useful, disappear from the store suddenly. Sometimes these are security problems on the part of a specific app or lack of development, but in others, the reasons are conspicuous by their absence. This is the case of HandyCall and its APK .
The truth is that this application was available on Google Play like any other since 2014, but two years later, it was decided to close the chiringuito. Now, we only have to enjoy its functions through an APK, and if you still don’t know what it consists of, we are going to expose all its details below.
Answer calls without stopping playing
The main premise of the application is that it allows us to answer calls while we perform other tasks on the device. These other tasks can be multiple, but the ones that are most uncomfortable usually catch us playing, listening to music or taking photographs. This is motivated by the immovable preference that the system gives to incoming calls, with an outgoing window that occupies the entire screen.
We miss the possibility that calls appear, for example, from the notification bar as the latest generation terminals already put into practice. Unfortunately, not all users are in the latest fashion, so they continue to suffer from this handicap. Meanwhile, this HandyCall tool allows you to answer calls without stopping playing games , listening to music or any other task.
Its operation is simple, since it shows the incoming call in a pop up format on the screen . Normally it is shown right in the center, since previously it was possible to configure the position although it is not currently possible due to the obsolescence of the version. In the functions of this pop-up window, we find the options to hide it from the screen, silence the call or pick it up to answer.
How to download the HandyCall APK and configure the app
Since it is no longer available in the Play Store, we only have the repositories of apps that exist on the internet. We have chosen one of the best known , APKPure , which contains the latest version of the app, specifically 1.5. To install it on our device is very simple:
- First, we go to the link to download HandyCall in APKPure .
- Then, it only remains to install the APK, and grant the pertinent permissions for calls and access to contacts. If in any case the app is not activated, we enter the interface to check the “Enabled” box .
All that remains is to configure some parameters that the app contains. Some of the most interesting ones are used to change the design of the pop-up window, if we want it to be rectangular or circular . In addition, it allows you to customize the transparency of this window, as well as to show the native app of the phone if we are on the lock screen or with the terminal completely locked.
One of the bugs that HandyCall presents is that it does not identify the person making the call, since the generic name of ‘Jack’ appears, something that impoverishes the experience. Likewise, it also had in-app purchases to access premium features , although that option is already disabled.
