Gesture Beta for Lumia allows for "touch-less" call management

Some people may even forget their smartphones can still make phone calls; but for those who don't, Microsoft offers a very nice call management app for their Lumia devices that will make you wonder why such things aren't yet standard in all phones.

This Gestures Beta is an app that relieves you of the burden of having to manually select things like muting the phone or putting it in speaker mode. Instead, you need only do intuitive gestures you'd probably do anyway in those scenarios. With this app you can:
  • Answer a call by picking up your phone and putting it to you ear
  • Mute your mic during a call by placing the phone on a flat surface with the display facing down
  • Put the call on speaker by placing the phone on a flat surface with the display facing up
  • Silence incoming call ringer by flipping phone display down

Should you think any of these gestures isn't quite what you need, you can simply turn them off individually in the Gestures Beta app available on Windows Phone Store. I don't make many voice calls these days, but I sure think this is something all phones should have.
