Chances are, you've been there: a boring meeting or social event that you're desperately seeking an escape from. The person or people you're talking with won't take the hint that you're not interested. You hope someone will call so you can have a pretend conversation about needing to be somewhere else right away. Or maybe you're wishing for a text that demands your immediate attention. Whatever the situation, you can now plan your own escape routes with this Android app. Here's how:
Step 1: Install Log Me. Once installed, run the app.
Step 2: Enter the number of the person you want your fake call or message from in the text area labeled Caller ID. You can enter a fake number or select someone from your Contact List (press the button labeled Pick).
Step 3: Give a name for the person contacting you. If you selected someone from your Contact List, this will be filled in automatically.
Step 4: Select your trigger. This can be a timed trigger or you can set up the proximity sensor to set off your call/message.
Step 5: Set up your fake call or SMS.
To receive a fake call:
Select Call Logs from the tabs at the top. Enter the duration of your fake call and press Create to schedule the fake call.
To receive a fake text:
Select Message from the tabs at the top. Type in the body of the SMS in the text area labeled message. Press create to schedule your fake text message.
Don't forget to plan your escape before attending events you've come to label as boring; you can make the call or text happen at your convenience and get the heck out of there.
