Not working at all. Recording is done only once you open the app and dial the call. Protect password is not working, app is auto opened without password once you press the back button. Email helpline is also not working. (email sending failure).

I really liked it till Google had to go and mess it up by taking control and not allowing the app to us phone numbers. I do not understand why Google has such a problem with recording call. I am sure they record all android calls themselves. I do wish that FonTel would have made a special permission OK to download the update to at least worn us of this change to avoid surpises when the user just did a normal update. 2 stars not 1 because this really was Googles fault.
