CritiCall allows you to easily set “critical” contacts so your phone will ring when those contacts call or text, even when your phone is on silent.
Please report issues to firstname.lastname@example.org - we'll respond the same day!
SOME DEVICES REQUIRE THAT YOU SET A CUSTOM RINGTONE WITHIN THE CRITICALL NOTIFICATION SETTINGS TO PROPERLY OVERRIDE THE VOLUME!
CritiCall Version 3.0 is now unlimited and never expires!
***Fixed reported bugs
Do you turn your phone to silent when you go to bed?
Worried about missing important calls while the volume is turned down? CritiCall is the answer. Calls and texts from important contacts will still ring, even when your phone is turned to silent.
• Phone rings when critical contacts call you – even when phone is set to silent!
• Works for texts
• Set as many “critical” contacts as you want
• Scheduler - Set custom times for each Critical Contact
o Unlimited number of groups (friends, family, work, clients, etc)
o Unlimited number of contacts within each group
o Change settings once to change the settings for all contacts in the group
• Customizable ringtones/notifications
• Adjustable Auto-resume feature lets you tun CritiCall off for an adjustable period of time
***Recent changes to Handcent, GoSMS, and other 3rd party messaging apps may cause issues with CritiCall, please email us at email@example.com if your text notifications aren't working properly***
Full Internet access
We use a built-in reporting system in the event the app force closes. The reports only collects device information and the cause of the force close - it does not collect any personal information.
CritiCall never accesses the actual message content; however, it does have to recognize incoming texts so that it can override the volume when an incoming text it received.
Read contact data
CritiCall has to be able to read the incoming phone number in order to determine whether or not to override the volume. We don't actually store any of that information other than to create the contact list in the app and to correctly identify whether or not the incoming call/text is from a contact designated as "critical."
Read phone state and identity
This is only used in CritiCall to determine the volume setting on the phone and whether or not there is an active call. We don't access the phone number or serial number of the phone..
Modify/delete USB storage contents modify/delete SD card contents
CritiCall stores the critical contact information/data on the SD Card.
Modify global system settings
CritiCall has to access and change the volume settings on the phone, so this permission is required to perform that functionality.
Vibration override – allows the phone to also vibrate.
Control system backup and restore
As with the Internet Access permission, this is required to perform the backup/restore option which is an integrated functionality provided by Google.
We are committed to making CritiCall one of the most useful applications on the market; however, SIMPLY APPLIED DOES NOT MAKE ANY GUARANTEES, EITHER EXPLICIT OR IMPLIED, THAT CRITICALL WILL ALWAYS WORK AS DESCRIBED, NOR DOES SIMPLY APPLIED ASSUME ANY RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DAMAGES ASSOCIATED WITH CRITICALL’S PERFORMANCE OR FAILURE TO PERFORM.
We appreciate your feedback, comments, and suggestions.

Tho this app is brilliant, it used to be better, the free trial version used to allow you 3 critical contacts with no expiary, now only allows 5 over-rides then expires. Pretty gutted cos this app is really good. Off to find a free one!A Google User - December 31, 2011
