BlackBerry devices are excellent communication tools. We can effortlessly switch between sending a BBM, SMS Text, an Email, or calling someone with a simple tap or swipe. While we can initiate calls using the Phone App or by launching Contacts, this doesn't preclude us from utilizing a third-party app to make this process quicker and easier. For those of you who regularly communicate with certain individuals, SwipeCall is a native BlackBerry 10 app which allows you to swipe left-to-right to quickly make a phone call.
Using the app itself is quite simple. However, I must point out the contacts must be inputted into the app's local storage in order to work. You can enter in the name and phone number of each person you wish to add to SwipeCall's address book, or you can select a contact from the BlackBerry Contacts app. Images stored in the Contacts app will automatically import into SwipeCall. For contacts entered manually, you can choose your own image.
Once your contacts are stored, simply swipe left-to-right on the individual you wish to call, and you will be directed to the Phone app. The developer has stated the swiping right-to-left is a feature they are currently working on.
- Easy to handle.
- Adaptive theme available.
- Dark and Bright theme available.
- Different Colors to look UI different
- Fast and reliable
- Backup and Restore function available
SwipeCall is a handy app to quickly communicate with your most frequents contacts throughout the day. You can find it in BlackBerry World for $1.99.
