DimInCall Brings New Options To Control The Screen During A Call

On May 22, 2013

Any smartphone made by a smart manufacturer automatically closes the screen when we are talking on the phone and have our ear close to the device, but iPhones have often had problems with this system. To solve the problem there is now a tweak called DimInCall, it closes the screen automatically when a call is initiated/accepted. The screen can be re-opened by pressing the Home/Lock button, but if we want we can set the closing/opening to be made by means of physical buttons and not automatically.

Compatible with iOS 5 and 6. One great feature in iOS is that when you put iPhone near your ear during a call, the screen blacks out automatically, in case your face touches the buttons by mistake. But what doesn’t make it perfect is that if you’re not holding the phone like the proximity sensor expects, the screen stays visible, thus making it easy to mess the call. In my humble opinion, the screen should be turned off as soon as a call is connected, rather than let the proximity sensor decide. So here comes “DimInCall”.

DimInCall comes of course with a settings menu where we can customize its functionality, so you can choose exactly how you want to use it, as needed. This tweak is available at a price of $2 in the BigBoss repo of Cydia and only works with iPhones.
