Call Alert will chime every few minutes if you miss a phone call, voice mail message or SMS message. If you are out of range of a cell tower or off-line, Call Alert will start chiming as soon as you get back in range and the voice mail notification arrives.
Call Alert also can determine when you are in a car and can speak your SMS messages out loud as they arrive. Great for keeping your eyes on the road. You must have paired your phone's Bluetooth with the car to utilize this feature.
You can control the volume level and frequency of the alerts. You can also select the alert sound and vibration.
To set up Call Alert, you will be prompted to allow Call Alert to view notifications. This lets the app detect when a new voice mail or SMS message arrives. Next you will be asked to identify the phone app, voicemail app and messaging app used on your phone. Follow the instructions shown on how to do this.
As with all apps from Newbury Graphics, Call Alert is free and contains no ads and does not require access to the internet.
Call Alert asks for the Read Contacts permission so it can show the caller's name for missed SMS notifications. This is optional. It also uses the Read Phone State permission to determine when calls arrive and are not picked up. This is optional if you only want to get alerts for SMS messages. If you want to use an external ringtone for the missed call alert, you will be asked to allow reading external storage.
