New day, new app in Cydia. It’s called CallControll and it is an amazing app, which brings even more power to the every iPhone user. One thing i dont understand is why they had to use the Coco Chanel logo.Let me show you what i mean. On the left side there a screenshot of my springboard , where you can see the CallControl icon, and on the left side you can see the Coco Chanel logo.

See what i mean? Anyway… Like i already said, this is an amazing app that will allow you to mute your phone answer calls send a busy signal or redirect calls to your voicemail just by using the built in accelerometer.You can also set it to send an auto SMS to the person you reject.

First of all, you need to set the app. That means to set different actions for the different gestures and adjust the accelerometer.You will need to load the app, by tapping the icon on your springboard. There you will need to set actions for While Face Down , Flip Over , Shaking. You set the actions as you like. There are no instructions for setting the actions, just set them so you will remember what you need to do while an you get an incoming call. For example i’ve set mine , While Face Down to mute ringer. It seems like a natural gesture – action combination to me. Again, you will set them to your own liking. I am guessing ( not sure so far ) that if the phone is face down before an incoming call , the call(s) will be auto-muted. Not sure though…

Next tap General Settings where you can adjust the acceleration ( by tapping Detect Shaking Acceleration ) , and also turn ON/OFF the auto SMS that will be send when you black a call using gestures. There is also an option to create your own message that you want to send.

You can also enable or disable CallControl from your lockscreen. That its simple. Once you install CallControl there will be the call control icon on your lock screen. Tap the icon and it will appear next to your battery. That means that CallControl is enabled and you can use the gesture-actions to control the incoming calls.
