YoBu is a free Notification Center widget that lets you promptly dial and call phone numbers without needing to release any app, yet it could not be along for long.
When Apple revealed widgets were coming to the iPhone and iPad, among the concerns was that it would turn into a free for all that saw widgets being released for simply concerning anything. Apple tried to quit that from taking place by enforcing constraints on exactly what a widget can and could not do, and there was also a handful of high profile application denials including the likes of Drafts and PCalc. Some quirks still falling with also today however.
By peculiarities, we mean widgets that we never would certainly have expected to view the light of day on iOS, mostly due to the fact that it suits directly into the camp of things that the application testimonial team should be rejecting based on past happening. Fortunately though, YoBu not just made it over the App Store, however it’s additionally gained functionality because also.
Looking at the widget itself, you’ll find a number pad and a telephone call button which is practically all you require if you’re going to make a dialer. Being able to make phone calls from Notification Center is something you’ll either make a great deal of usage of, or just try not to comprehend the point of. We’re not exactly sure which side of the line we rest if we’re sincere, but we can see an instance for making phone calls without first having to open your phone – – in specific scenarios at the very least.
Beyond having the ability to call numbers the widget likewise reveals recently called individuals and has a search function that occupies a listing based upon which numbers are pushed on the keyboard. Overall it functions well, and when you factor in the reality the widget is free there isn’t really a fantastic bargain to not like here. It’s the kind of thing that we expect Apple to draw from the App Store eventually however, so if you desire a to install YoBu, now may be the moment to do it.
