How to make your Android phone remind you after a missed call or text
And for some strange reason, today's phones aren't all that good at drawing our attention after we miss a call. That's why one might never realize their phone rang until they reach for it. Thankfully, there's Missed Call Reminder – an Android app that, well, reminds you of missed calls, texts, and notifications. In this how-to guide, we'll show you how to set it up on your smartphone.
Of course, the first thing you have to do is to download Missed Call Reminder on your phone. The app comes free of charge (with in-app purchases) and is compatible with phones running Android 2.1 or higher.
Once launched, Missed Call Reminder is activated automatically, but it doesn't walk you through its features and options. There's nothing wrong with leaving the app enabled with its default settings applied, but it is worth at least taking a look at what the software can be configured to do.
Single-tapping on a profile lets you edit its properties, and there's a ton of them to tweak. Among the variables you may modify are the notification sound and vibration pattern for the reminders. You may also make your camera's LED light go off, but the option isn't supported on all phones.
Further down the list of profile options you'll find the sequence of notifications. Think of these as sub-profiles which are executed in order. Once the delay period expires (30 seconds by default), the first notification pattern is triggered for a given period, then the next one and so on. Feel free to edit these to your liking or leave them as they are.
And lastly, if you feel like creating your own profile from scratch instead of relying on the stock ones, just tap on the big plus button in the upper right corner. Note that the option to add third-party app notifications to profile is a premium feature and has to be unlocked with an in-app purchase.
