Those horrible meetings that seem to go on forever, dates with people you're sorry you ever met, or that friend of a friend's friend that stops you in the street to explain their life story when you're in a hurry. Ring a bell? These are just some examples of those awkward moments where you just wish you had an immediate, yet polite, excuse to get the hell out of there.
If could only get a phone call right now, and feign an an excuse to escape the nightmare! Wouldn't that be amazing? I'm thinking something along the lines of: "I'm sorry, I have to go, there was this raccoon... and..."
The problem is, we don't get calls when we want them, and we don't have any control over when we do get them. Or do we?
Apps like Fake-A-Call Free let you fake an incoming phone call from one of your contacts. Not only that, but you can also set up the call so that it comes automatically after pressing the button, or give the exact time that you want it to ring. This really is the excuse you were looking for!
2. Tap "Fake a call now" if you want to receive a call from a "unknown number" right there and then.
3. If you want to customize it so that a contact fake calls you, tap "Fake a call now", go to "Call Now Settings" and choose the amount of time you wish to pass before the call is made, who you want the call to come from, the ringtone and even the voice on the other end.
4. If you can plan ahead and know when you'll be needing to escape, you can also set up fake calls from "Schedule Fake Call" and from there you can set up the exact time, the contact (with photo!) and the ringtone.
5. You can check out your scheduled fake calls from the "Fake Call Schedule" list.
And lastly, just be creative and think up an excuse that really works. No raccoons!
