Ultimate Call Screen HD Free (Android) - Full-screen caller ID

This app gives you a sweet full-screen caller ID and much more Check out all the features:

Ultimate Call Screen HD: Fullscreen Caller ID. Call Blocker and Sensor actions!

Ultimate Call Screen HD Free combines a Fullscreen Caller ID replacement, contact picture manager, call blocker, and, on top of that, sensor-base actions such as rejecting calls by turning the phone screen-down. All this on the same package, working from Android V2.1 to ICS, on any resolution on any phone.

Although there are some limitations on this free version, there is no limit whatsoever on the number of contacts you can personalize or block. There are no adds and no timeouts. I believe on added functionality for value, not crippling the app to force buys. You can buy the license an unlock the extra features on this app from a link to Google Play on UCS Settings.

IMPORTANT: after choosing the HD picture for a contact, in the detailed contact view, check "Contact will use personalized..." or it will still use the default.

Feature List (Free version):

General:

- No limit on number of contacts to personalize. You can personalize each and every contact call screen.
- Fully working from Android V2.1 to ICS (lots of other apps don't work above 2.2)
- Fully working on HTC phones running Sense UI (lots of other apps can't answer calls in Sense)

Full Screen Caller ID

- Press "Back" when UCS is handling a call to jump back to your regular phone interface.
- Contact manager with fast scrolling, and auto-adjusted index based on actual contact list. You can choose pictures from gallery or take from camera.
- A builtin image cropper with multi-touch zooming.
- Per-contact block status configuration.
- Preview each contact callscreen on the fly from the Contact Manager.
- Define a global default HD picture for those contacts you don't feel like personalizing (and for unknown numbers)

Call Blocker

- Block individual contacts. The Contact Manager will show in red letters which contacts are blocked for easy managing.
- Global Activate / deactivate call blocking, overriding individual contact block status. Useful in situations were you want to block people during certain hours (like at work), but don't want to individually unblock all of them later.

Sensor based actions

- You can activate/deactivate sensor actions
- You can set the "Turn to reject" feature. Simply turn the phone screen-down to reject an incoming call.



Ultimate Call Screen HD is FREE on the Android Market!
