HandyPhone


HandyPhone provides your smartphone those missing features that are available in other mobile phones. There are applications that implement these functions separately (for instance Escalating Ring, Increasing Ring, Ascending Ringtone, Volume Locker, Missed Calls Reminder, etc.). But HandyPhone gathered them all in one application. HandyPhone makes your smartphone a more convenient and user-friendly, not only to you but also to others.

Basic HandyPhone features:

Ascending Ring (increasing ring volume)

Most of Android devices do not have such a mode in which the ringing volume gradually increases from quiet to loud. HandyPhone corrects this deficiency.
When there is an incoming call HandyPhone starts gradually increase the ringing volume. In the settings you specify level from which ring volume should begin and the maximum volume level at which to stop. There is a mode in which the phone first vibrates for a few seconds and then starts ringing. The ringing volume increase rate is governed by five values from the "Very slow" to "Very fast."
Changing the volume manually while ringing (for example switching off sound) causes HandyPhone to stop the ascending ring. The application also works well in conjunction with built-in automatic volume control functions such as the «Pocket Mode» and «Quiet ring on pickup» in HTC devices.

Lock Volume

This feature prevents you from accidentally changing the ringing volume. Very often the ring volume settings are changed because of the side volume keys (rocker) are accidentally pressed. HandyPhone monitors changes of the volume settings. In case of volume change the alert will appear in the system status bar. Open the notification and click it to confirm the volume change. The ringing volume will be automatically restored to its original value if new level will not confirmed within 15 seconds.

Missed Events Notification

The application can remind you of missed calls, unread SMS and MMS, unwatched calendar alarms, with sound, vibration, turning on the screen and message in the status bar. Unfortunately the calendar event reminder works only in Android 4.0 and above. However all other features operates in any versions of Android.
Interval and duration of reminders, as well as the method of notification can be specified in the settings. HandyPhone will issue a notifications at regular intervals within a specified time (duration). Alerts will terminate automatically when the notice subject disappears (for example, no more incoming calls). Also notifications can be stopped by an icon in the status bar.
Calendar event reminders will work only if alert is set for the event in the Calendar application. Note that the alerts generated by the Tasks application is not related to the calendar events and therefore HandyPhone will not remind about Tasks.

Power Events

Some devices do not react when connecting or disconnecting the power supply. With HandyPhone you can set an audible notification when connecting or disconnecting power supply, and when the battery is fully charged.

Sprint S4 L720T 4.4.2 I actually use this to kill the increasing ringtone on my Samsung. After trying numerous Xposed modules and SecPhone APKs with no success, I thought I'd try this out. Works good.

Does not work anymore Worked great with Nexus 4 / Android 4.3, very useful. But with Nexus 5 / Android 4.4 it does nothing, even not in high priority mode. Developers do not respond. What a pity.

Excellent! Does everything very well that should have been included in KitKat. Love all the various settings!
