Question.And answers

I have Motorola Droid and the app does not cut a busy call, why?
The Motorola Droid has such a built in phone app what does not end the call when the busy is detected. Other phones are automatically cut such calls. This app can not cut any call, so can not cut a busy call either - This is an API limitation so this issue can not be solved at the moment, sorry
Does not work on voicemail?
The same problem as above: the app can not cut a call ran into a voicemail. As above, this issue can not be solved at the moment, sorry
What is the major difference between the Full and FREE versions?
Using the full version you can set unlimited call attempts.
Is the full version available?
Yes, go and get ift from the market if you want unlimited repeats.
How can I send bugs or hint for improvement?

Howto.use it

There many limitations of the API in this recalling approach, there is no possibility to catch phone handling button presses, restricted call start/end informaiton and so on.
This is why many workarounds had to be set in order to achieve this result.

The usage is simple:
1. setup the repeats and speaker settings
2. choose the call number you want to dial
3. start the seqence
4. when service starts the menu disappears and starts the calling
5. when a failure occurs (busy, no response) the menu reappears enabling you to interact - eg. stopping service.
6. and recalling again and again...
7. until a successful call occurs or you stop the service (and of course: if the service reaches the number of repeats previously set)
