Announcing The Operator! From the author of Startup Auditor. (Upgrades to Startup Auditor coming in the near future now that this is complete). The Operator (referring to old-school phone operator) is designed to do many useful things, such as automatically responding to and forwarding text messages (SMS/MMS), and auto responding and "forwarding" missed and declined calls, and more. You can go further and customize each of those to work for only certain Contacts, or not work for certain Contacts!

The Operator is one of the most useful management tools you'll ever need, but instead of managing your time or your money, it manages your incoming calls and texts and your response to them. The Operator gives you the power to respond to calls or texts when you are using another feature on your phone, you are occupied with a real life event, or you miss a call. How can it respond to calls or texts when I'm busy? The basic idea is that before you start a task that's going to keep you from answering your phone, you enable The Operator with certain options depending on what you're doing. Let's use an example to elaborate. Say you're on phone call and you want to respond with a text if anyone calls or texts you without interrupting your call. Open The Operator, go to Enable, and choose 'Enable Custom Mode' and then On a Phone Call. This will show an icon in your notifications indicating that The Operator is enabled. Now, choose your Settings. For an incoming text, you can choose to respond, or to forward the message to another number. For an incoming call, you can choose to silence the ringer or vibration, and then the option of post call settings will allow you to send a responding text message to that call.
