    Unobtrusive Chatheads-like Interface for Phone Calls: I keep installing and uninstalling this app every other week out of frustration with its inconsistency. But, I always return to it because it is very useful, and I blame only my mobile's crap memory management for the app's inconsistency. The app pops up a circular button with a contact picture, whenever there is an incoming call, over whatever app is currently open - like what Facebook Messenger does whenever there is a new message. The popout can be dragged to circles for various options to act upon the call, though it can't be moved about the screen freely like Facebook Messenger's chatheads. It can also be set to silence the ringer when the popout is touched.

    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.

    Ever played a game and got a call, interrupting your game and then even if you declined your game still got screwed up? This prevents that basically. Simple as that.

    If you use your Android for some serious work, you most certainly have encountered this situation hundreds of times: while doing something meaningful, someone really meaningless calls you and interrupts your workflow as the "incoming-caller-is-trying-to-annoy-you"-screen is coming up. Call PopOut comes to the rescue, announcing incoming calls by much less obtrusive bubbles (similar to how Facebook Messenger does). Essential to your (or at least: MY) peace of mind.

    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!
