I have to say that this tweak is the cats meow. Now that I have it I do not know how i functioned before it existed. I hate being in an app or typing an email and getting interrupted by an incoming call. Yes it only last for a little bit and most apps will resume but I hate the intrusion. Well that is solved as Callbar changes the incoming call to a status bar sized alert bar at the top of the screen to which I can answer or decline and continue about my businesss uninterrupted. Definitely in my list of must haves.

Unless it was recently updated, I heard that it nullifies the custom ringtones you have set up for specific contacts (ie the only ringtone you hear is the "default" one you chose in Settings). Also, I think the callbar always comes up -- regardless if you're in an app or not.

But yes, I love the idea of this tweak.

I have it and it's nice, but two issues that I have with it kinda erk me. The first is that the default ringtone rings while the phone is unlocked. I guess it's not a huge deal as the custom tone still rings when locked and since I can see who's calling while the phone is unlocked I really don't need the custom tone. The second isn't a huge deal either, but with the call banner always being on top, I can't cancel out a text displaying on the message+ banner (I have it set to manual dismiss). So I had to turn off the feature that keeps the call banner up after accepting a call. Once I accept a call, it now goes to the default call app. That's ok, because the main reason for me getting the tweak was to deny a call without leaving what I was doing.

Still, over all, I'd recommend the tweak!
