Prefixer

Prefixer


Prefixer - the original. Now with even more features!

A configurable (rule based) multi-purpose app that will prefix, suffix and/or replace numbers in your calls, provide customizable call notifications, call confirmations, auto handle calls, whitelist/blacklist numbers and more! All this is made on-the-fly based on your own set up rules. Just mix and match conditions and actions as you like!
You no longer need to manipulate or change your contact list just because your calling plans or habits change.

The rules in Prefixer are set up using a number of conditions and actions that are easy to configure, enable and disable.
When the condition(s) in a rule apply – the action(s) are executed.

Supported rule conditions:
✓ Number pattern recognition using regular expressions (incl. expression templates and a regular expression cheat sheet)
✓ Include/exclude secret and unknown numbers
✓ Contact list existence
✓ Contact labels (ex. Home, Work, Mobile...)
✓ Contact group member (ex. Family, Friends, Coworkers...)
✓ Roaming status
✓ WiFi connected/disconnected
✓ Day of week
✓ Time of day

Supported rule actions:
✓ Add prefix
✓ Add suffix
✓ Remove characters
✓ Replace removed character(s).
✓ Add original/manipulated number to call log
✓ Lookup contact (caller id)
✓ Call confirmation - basic, manual, password protect, auto reject and challenge mode (party mode/drunk blocker)
✓ Auto handle calls - auto answer, auto answer via speaker phone, deny & silence call
✓ Personal call notifications with your own configurable vibration patterns, text, font sizes, alignment, colors etc.

Prefixer also contains an on/off widget for your home screen.

Great for country codes, calling cards, access numbers, phone extensions, SIP dialing, Google Voice, Skype to go, PBX, Centrex solutions, FRITZ!Box, speed dialing, call confirmation, the problematic Facebook contact sync and similar!

------------------------

You can add and share rules with your friends by using and scanning QR codes, web links or by file (*.prfxr). Complete rule sets can be exported/imported to and from file.

Prefixer currently supports these languages:
English,
Swedish,
Italian,
Czech,
Ukrainian,
German,
French*,
Simplified Chinese*
Brazilian Portuguese*.
* temporary disabled while being retranslated for Prefixer 2.0.

User reviews of Prefixer
Feels quite solid; I just configured it, now waiting for the first call to see what happens. Very nice so far.

My favourite money-saving app! I use it to bypass my UK phone network for non-inclusive phone calls such as 0800, 0845, 0870 and international codes. Use it in conjunction with an account from 18185.co.uk

Excellent, minor bugs Excellent, but has some bugs in the preview feature when setting up customizations. Also, that customization UI really needs work.

Can only get it to half work. There's some glitch in the rom I use that puts the + sign in front of phone numbers and it was recommended I use this app as a work around. It works great for outgoing calls but it won't work for incoming calls. I've double checked the rules and it pops up and says "handled by prefixer" when I get a call but it just won't remove the + . Still giving 5 stars because I have no idea if it's the app or my phone but I'm leaning phone because the outgoing works perfectly.

When incoming calls are intercepted, call notification is not forwarded anymore to android wear devices. Please fix!
