Hi all,

After my latest incident of accidentally dialing my elderly Aunt at 6am (:blush:) while scrolling through my Android contact list, I need help. I am looking for an app that will ask "are you sure" before any call is made.

I see there are a few available on Google Play, but I am looking for any personally recommended. I cannot be the only person to make accidental calls. :D

Google Nexus 4.

Thanks. :)

"Outgoing Call Confirm"
I had a couple of embarrassing mis-calls before I went searching for protection against calls being placed by my pocket when I wasn't looking! I've had it for about a year and although I slightly resent it demanding approval each time I make a call, I am grateful that it is there!

Can't help but know what you mean! I'll note recommendations made to you. Saw an article recently about how many 'pocket' 111 calls are made.

This (http://www.samsung.com/us/mobile/cell-phones-accessories/EF-CI950BBESTA) is good for preventing pocket dialing ;)

"Outgoing Call Confirm"Thanks, I had a look at that app and it hadn't been updated for a couple of years. I tend to stick to apps that are actively maintained by the dev.

I have found this app - Call Confirm (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.vladlee.callconfirm.free&hl=en) - which has good reviews and is actively maintained. Free too. So far it seems to be OK.
