If there is one application that we would like to have on our WinMo device, we would suggest one that can handle our calls effectively, record those telecon meetings and blacklist annoying telemarketing calls. There are a number of apps that you can find for doing any one of these tasks online but now there is one app that can do this all and more. Paragon Software has today launched Handy Assistant that does all the above mentioned tasks as well as helps you change your profile, manage your contacts better and do a lot more.
Excerpt from the press release:
Profiles: One of the most important phone features is Profile switching and management, which is particularly useful when an occasional phone call interrupts meetings or when an important call was missed due to the silent sound mode. Handy Assistant includes six default profiles to manage the userâ€™s ring type, sound volume and call
processing: Meeting, Sleep, Spare Time, Calendar Events and Roaming. The ability to create the userâ€™s own custom profile is also available. Profiles can be activated automatically or manually. Automatic profiles can be activated according to a preset schedule (specific days and time) or by location (e.g. office, gym, home). All profiles can be easily changed directly on the Todayâ€™s screen of the Windows mobile device.
Call processing: Handy Assistant processes all incoming calls and filters them according to the rules: Accept, Reject, Reject+SMS or Ignore. The user can set different rules for various categories of
contacts. Handy Assistant enables the user to reject the incoming call, if the mobile user is unable to answer it, while quickly sending an SMS message in return. The user can also create different SMS texts for various categories of contacts.
Contact categories: There are three default categories in Handy Assistant: VIP, Business and Personal. Users can create their own categories, edit category groups, activate the default or custom
profile for each contact category. The programâ€™s contact categories integrate easily with Windows Mobile native phone contact categories set by the user.
Black list: Handy Assistant enables the addition of contacts to the Black List in order to conveniently avoid undesired calls.
Post-call actions: Handy Assistant offers the user multiple options for after-call follow-ups, such as writing a note, open/add to Contacts, blacklist/whitelist the contact, change the current profile,
send e-mail/SMS, save info about an appointment and more actions in a matter of seconds, even during a call.
