CallBar- Amazing Tweak
I do not know how I lived before this tweak. Ever been in an important email or the middle of a serious game and get a call. I always hated how it took over the screen and interupted me. Well this tweak alters that behavior by making each call show up as a little bar at the top and you can answer or dismiss the call all while still doing what you need to do. No rude interuptions just a nice little notification that lets you continue what you are doing or answer the call.
I would rate this as one of my most essential tweaks.

i have been reading reports of people with iOS 5 (beta) trying to purchase this in Cydia without any success due to Cydia not recognizing the OS
of course some people have resorted to the cracked version as a work around
maybe Apple can "borrow" this tweak before the final release

For anyone interested, here are a few helpful links (due to my limited posts, the forums will not allow me to directly link. I apologize for the inconvenience):
CallBar User Guide: Search "CallBar User Guide" on Google
This guide is for learning how to use CallBar effectively - what does each button do, and what do the Settings in the Settings.app change in terms of functionality.
CallBar Theming Guide: Search "CallBar Theming Guide" on Google
If you are really into theming or just want to add a new look to CallBar, use the theming guide. It gives you step-by-step instructions on how to make a theme for CallBar (including locations of the .png files) and how to create a WinterBoard package for it.

P.S. BLiNK, if we do decide to do beta testing, it will probably be announced on Twitter or on my Google+ page. Get on either of those and you will know if we decide to open it up.

After testing this app, here is what i've found. It works as advertised, but it does not play nice with another app that i have called "CallTell". CallTell announces the caller's name before the phone rings, and it's worth every bit of $1.99. CallBar, when calltell is enabled, gives my iPhone the dreaded "white screen of death". Every BB user knows about that! I don't have as many apps as some people, so i can't say what else callbar does not play nice with, but it doesn't work for me. Hope this helps some people. Many thanks to "Coastie" for helping me out.

grunt, thanks for looking into this. whenever a "new" tweak comes out and looks "great" first impulse is to buy it--NOW. unfortunately it appears the consumer has now became the beta-tester
i am sure it will end up being a great tweak as advertised. if/when a untethered JB for iOS 5 comes out i am sure it will be in great shape by then.. then again, the longer i stay Pure the more i wonder if i need to jailbreak. weird
My question is have any of you that are having issues have you contacted the dev? I know Josh Tucker has been quick to respond to bug and support issues over twitter. And with the proliferation of software and how they interact with one another it is almost impossible to test all scenarios, especially if you can't access any of the source code from another dev. It is frustrating to end users but you can only put out your best product and then fix some bugs as they pop up after trying to trouble shoot the interation between the two programs.

Works great on my Verizon iPhone 4 along with the other 20+ apps I have installed. Totally agree with the feedback from others that the "bar" is too small. Resizing should have been a v1.0 feature, but is hopefully at the top of the list for next update. I hope someone releases themes for it as well or, even better, the author includes a few optional themes with the package install. For $3.99 a pop, a couple themes in the package seems reasonable.
