Incoming phone calls and FaceTimes, whether you want to answer them or not, take over the entire screen of your iPhone – no matter what you're doing on the device. You could surf the net, play a game, or chat on social networks. It does not matter, you'll be interrupted. But you do not have to put up with it anymore.
If you have a jailbroken iPhone, there is an optimization that you can buy now to remove screen transfers of calls once and for all. It's called CallBar X, created by Elias Limneos and it adds a simple callbar interface to iOS that fills less than one-fifth of your iPhone's screen space so you can multitask during incoming calls. The bar is a less intrusive and annoying experience and allows you to stop where you left off after accepting or hiding the call.
While CallBar X costs $ 3.99, its features greatly enhance your iPhone experience, which far outweighs the price. In addition, the Tweak is incredibly easy to reach and interact once you've bought it, as we'll show you below.
Step 1: Install CallBar X
First, open Cydia and tap the "Search" tab. From there, type "Callbar x" in the search bar, and then tap the optimization that appears exactly in the results panel. Click Details on "Install" in the upper right corner to download it.
Tap "Confirm" in the upper right to complete your selection. The Tweak will now be installed on your iPhone, so wait a moment for the process to complete. Then click "Restart SpringBoard" to restart your iPhone and stop the installation of CallBar X.
After the recall, you will immediately receive a notification on your home screen prompting you to activate your CallBar X license. Click "OK" and open the app settings. Scroll down and select "CallBar X" to enter the settings.
You must now purchase a CallBar X license to use the feature activate. Tap on "Buy CallBar X" to proceed with the purchase. After that you will automatically be redirected to a PayPal page, enter your login details and follow the instructions to pay for the license.
Upon successful payment, you will be redirected to a page that displays your payment details, along with your unique transaction ID. This ID is very important because you will need it for future review if you need to reinstall the Tweak for some reason. Save a copy of this page by copying a screenshot to your iPhone to save it to Photos app.
Please note that earlier versions of CallBar purchased Cydia itself can not be applied to CallBar X. So you have to buy a new license to use the tweak. Fortunately, paying for CallBar X is only a one-time deal, as the developer has confirmed that their license will be transferred to future versions of the Tweak, including iOS 12 – as soon as a stable jailbreak becomes available for it
3: Activate CallBar X
After completing the payment, you can now fully access the CallBar X, access the settings highlighted in the second step, and tap the switch next to "Enable" to turn on the Tweak. From there, you'll be greeted with a number of features that you can enable, from setting the call bar at the top or bottom of the screen to using Optimization for FaceTime calls – and much more.
Additionally With these settings, you can set a custom look in CallBar X for a more personal look by tapping "Global View Style". In addition to the standard theme Dark you can choose between the themes "Light", "Concept X (Curved)" and "Concept X (Flat)".
Remember as long as you can If you want to set both the bright and the dark themes at the top and bottom of the screen, the two themes of Concept X can only be adjusted below.
CallBar X also gives you the ability to instantly access your Callbar Tweak using various gestures on the status bar of your iPhone. To do this, on the Settings page of Tweak, click on "Activation Methods" and tap one or all three switches to open CallBar X either by double-tapping or by swiping left or right to open status bar ,
Regardless of which options you set, CallBar X applies them immediately without having to restart your device. This will allow you to quickly tweak and tune each setting until it optimizes to your liking
When the CallBar X is enabled and set up to your liking, incoming and outgoing calls are made Show calls (if enabled) as a small, unobtrusive call bar Tap for more options, such as: B. to activate the speaker function or to raise the keypad.
If you receive an incoming call while you are doing something important, swipe the bar to hide it. The status bar turns green to indicate that a call is still trying to reach you. You can tap this bar to recall the call bar. When playing a game or looking at something in landscape orientation, note that the call bar is locked in portrait orientation so that it is sideways in landscape orientation.
The optimization works very well in the same way for FaceTime audio and video, the latter containing additional windows on both sides to show videos of you and your contact. If the video call is too small, double-tap the call bar to enter full-screen mode and see your contact more clearly.
