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.

An incoming call sometime interrupt us while we are playing a game, reading Flipboard, surfing web. This nature of Android phone disturbs us and cost you time, concentration, feeling.
