[APP] Root Call Blocker - the only REAL call and SMS firewall

Last Updated:

  1. Killswitch for tablets and phones

    Fahrbot Mobile presents Killswitch, a utility made specifically for devices with cases.

    What does Killswitch do?

    The app uses a combination of sensors to control the sleep state and screen lock of any device.

    At the moment, it uses the proximity sensor, light sensor and accelerometer.

    Killswitch has the added advantage of removing your lockscreen via two different methods if you so wish. If you have a case, it really isnt necessary and can be annoying.

    Why use Killswitch?

    Killswitch will save you battery - putting your device to sleep is as intuitive as shutting your case or turning your phone face down.

    All this will use no more power than any Android device does on default settings, as all of the pertinent sensors are already on all the time.

    And, of course, Killswitch will show all your ipad and iphone loving mates why android is just that much more awesome [​IMG]

    Settings for tablets should look like this:

    Enable Killswitch: tick
    Admin Permissions: tick
    Confirmation time: 10sec
    Activation delay: 6sec
    No-lock: Disable screen lock
    Use proximity: no tick
    Use light sensor: tick
    Sensitivity: 10%
    Use accelerometer: no tick

    After upgrading to a newer version, please go into the settings dialog and enable Killswitch again. This is not optimal, but it saves battery and cpu time by removing the necessity for a constantly running service!

    The app is available right now on the Android Market.

    Fahrbot Mobile are happy to present our screen capture app for all rooted devices, including those running Andorid 3 Honeycomb: Screenshot ER.

    Our app employs a unique solution to allow capture on any device, and is currently the only application capable of working on Honeycomb.

    Features include:

    - JPEG or PNG
    - Shake, notification or delay timer screenshots
    - Custom storage location
    - Custom delays

    It is confirmed to work on almost any device, though some configurations of the Atrix have been known to have issues!

  3. Timed

    typographic clock widget and advanced alarm

    Fahrbot Mobile are happy to present Timed, a minimalistic text clock and advanced alarm clock with many useful features not found in other alarm applications.

    Have you ever wished you could choose the length of snooze on the fly without actually waking up? Timed is for you!

    - Totally configurable widget (scale, alignment, element and shadow colors)
    - Widget shows time remaining till next alarm
    - Extra configurable snooze buttons (snooze, snooze more, snooze less)
    - Gentle alarm which slowly raises volume instead of jarring you awake
    - Complete hardware button configuration

    New features are coming in the next few weeks, including dock mode, dynamic widget element realignment and more.

    Timed is an expanded tribute to the great TypoClock, so a big shout out to Semicuda for the original idea!

    Began test driving today on LG Optimus M and will try to give useful feedback later.
    I've been looking for a system level call blocker to replace the sluggish Mr. Number app.
  10. So, any thoughts?

    I like it, I like it alot and have sent crash reports.
    I used to use Mr. Number but that was a pain as it would sometimes slow the actual ringing of the phone while it checked the number and or checked to see if I had purchased Caller ID.

    One thing I need clarification about is the Operating Mode.
    Do I need to create another profile for white lists?

    Also, I'm assuming you've put Blocked Numbers, Unlisted or Unknown under the Unrecognized numbers choice within Add numbers to list option?

    Other than that it's pretty straight forward and works like a charm and would be happy to donate the $3.00 for such a nice app.

    We are back for more awesome screenshot action.

    Screenshot ER is a screen capture app for all rooted devices, proven to work where nothing else does. Annoyed with your ROM's crappy screenshot implementation? This app is for you.

    Currently working on all known rooted devices. If it doesnt work for you, let us know and we will make it work.

    Currently the only app working well with Superuser 3! We were first to Honeycomb and first again to this. Fancy that.


    - More cool options than any other app
    - Awesome thumbnail preview
    - Our legendary daemon works on almost anything running Android


    - Shake, delay, shortcut, long press or notification icon methods
    - Thumbnail or full-screen previews (or none at all)
    - Rotate images
    - Choose save folder
    - Save as JPEG or PNG
    - Share menu integration for Picasa, Dropbox or whatever you have installed
    - Shake sensitivity adjustment
    - Start on boot

    Please rate and comment if you like the app! If you have problems, write and we will fix them ASAP.

    Please visit our blog if you need to upgrade from the original Screenshot ER!

    The Lite version now has all the same functionality as the Pro, except delays for all shortcuts are set to 8 seconds.

    If you are one of the douches that refused to upgrade like we told you to, you are warned right now - there is nothing more i will do than direct you to our site.
