Anyone can Interrupt you even if phone in silent mode!

This is one of the coolest feature of 'Interrupt'.  Any of your friend who don't have android can also make your phone ring even if its in silent mode.  This is very useful when people want to talk to you urgently and notify as soon as possible.

Your friends can send a special message to you and then make a phone call that's it. 
Ask your friend to send '=i=' in message and once the message reaches you then ask them to dial your phone number. Your phone will start ringing even though its in silent mode making the incoming call as Interrupt/Important call. Try it and pass on following instructions to your friends.

Instructions for your friends to make an interrupt call if they want to reach you urgently.

"If you wish to reach me urgently, just send me a message with =i= and then make a phone call. My phone will start ringing even if its in silent mode. I have installed Interrupt android app that does the magic!"   Paste this as your Facebook status :-)

You can use this if you missed place your phone in silent mode and wish to ring it loud. Try it!

Interrupt - How it works!

Bob and Alice are fictitious characters referred to portrait different use cases for Priority Call.

Use cases - Heuristic detection of priority call based on successive miss calls.

Alice needs to call Bob urgently and tries to make call several times. Unfortunately Bob’s phone is in silent and he missed all phone calls. Bob installs Priority Call app to avoid similar situation in future. Two successive miss calls from Alice will then ring the phone for subsequent call as Priority call. Bob’s phone will start ringing even though it’s in silent/Vibrate mode.  Bob can configure these heuristic to detect priority calls based on his preferences to never miss any important calls.

Use case - Alice’s request for priority call.
Alice wants to make an important call and wants Bob to receive it promptly. With Priority call app, Alice request for ‘Priority call’ by just a simple click on ‘Yes’ in dialer and that notifies Bob of urgent call. Phone rings even if it’s in silent/vibrate mode. Bob’s sees the red flashing label on phone and the loud ring.

Use case - Marking Alice as VIP contact
Alice is visiting neighboring city and wants help from Bob about anything she requires. Bob adds Alice’s number to VIP list and the phone always rings for Bob when Alice makes a phone call.

Use case - Blacklist contacts to never wish to attend
Alice is frustrated about frequent marketing calls she gets from set of numbers. Bob suggest her about adding those numbers to blacklist. All unwanted phone calls and text messages get blocked thereafter.
