Don't you hate it when someone calls you in the middle of a game? Stop interrupting, real life! Call PopOut is a nifty app which bypasses the disruptive call screen, instead displaying a little contact circle you can drag around to accept, reject, or mute the call. Love it.

Great! This app is great! I don't constantly make or receive phone calls, but when I do, it's nice to not have it popping up and taking over my whole screen. This app accomplishes a minimal, yet effective call answering system and I will continue to support it. Thanks, devs!

[no root required] Call PopOut is a new entry on my list of favourite apps. For some reason, ALWAYS when I do something on my phone, someone rings and interrupts what I was doing. Anytime. Call PopOut comes to the rescue by announcing callers through small bubbles, instead of those full-screen annoyances.

Basically, it’s an app that keeps you at whatever app you have open and turns any incoming call into a floating icon.Of course, if the person calling is in your contacts, you’ll get their photo photo. This way, you can quickly mute and dismiss the call, answer it or hang up without leaving the screen you were working on.
