Nowadays, a lot of newly released smartphones will try to impress you with their cool and interesting features. One good example of this is when you are accepting calls. Instead of manually pressing the accept button, all you need to do is to wave your hand or finger in front of your phone. Sounds like a cool thing to do, huh? Well, your not-so-new phone can do that too. All you need is a reliable call application that could utilize your phone’s built-in proximity sensor. Speaking of which, let’s find out if Air Call Answer can provide you with the features that you’re looking for.

What I like about this app is that it is responsive and stable. There weren’t any troublesome glitches and errors. It quickly responds to my hand movements so it makes it easier for me to answer calls even if I am doing other important things such as cooking, writing, etc.
Aside from the above stated features, this app also features a handy home screen widget. The widget is a great option especially if you want to quickly enable the app without having to launch it from your app drawer.
All in all, I could say that Air Call Answer is a good call application. It’s just that it also has some downsides such as the fact that it doesn’t have an ad-free version. It would be really nice if this app has alternate version that’s totally free from ads plus it also lacks the option that lets you mute or reject certain calls from your smartphone especially if the call will just bother your work.
