How to manage an incoming call on Android without interrupting what you are doing

Ever been in the midst of gaming, browsing, or reading on your Android phone, and you got a call from some unknown number you don't want to take? Most handsets will go into the full screen calling app immediately, and you will have to wait for the caller to give up before you go back to what you were doing, or shut them up with a rude busy signal. What if they decide to call again, though? It might become pretty annoying very quickly, especially if you are trying to beat your game record, so there's an app for that, and we don't mean putting your phone in a limped airplane mode.

If you want to manage an incoming call without interrupting your current activity on the phone, try the new HandyCall from the download link below. It basically transforms the incoming call into a floating popup that hovers on top of anything else you are doing, while still keeping it visible. The popup lets you answer or decline the call, mute the sound, put the caller on speaker, or simply get rid of the popup, and get back to the action. HandyCall also lets you use various visual styles with it - from the orthodox rectangular popup, to the handy floating balloons style. It should work with any Android version, and is completely free for now, so if you are interested in such functionality, you can give it a try and tell us how it went.

Samsung, LG and Sony phones already have this built in. Basically only Nexus phones don't have it. Stock Android lacks a lot of useful stuff...
