    For a project I need my app to invoke a call on its own, based on signals sent to it from me (sms im assuming)

    So i send an SMS signal, and the app dials a number.

    Does anyone know of any app that has done this, or even makes a call on a timer? Once i find that it has been done, i know its possible for me to do it as well.

    Thanks. Just wondering what the SDK allows.

    Check out the permission "android.permission.CALL_PHONE" and the Direct Dial shortcut (Shortcuts are just icons attached to intents).
