during the creation of this major update the Devs worked with compatibility on the bigger well known apps out there. now they are working on the minor issues that people are tweeting to them. i have had no issues at all but i imagine jailbreakers who have the right, or wrong, setup are what is causing issues. not CallBar itself
for example; i cannot use the 'Dialer Activation Method' while ISX is showing on the lockscreen but if i swipe ISX away it works perfectly. they are looking into this and many others. there should be an update coming soon

my apologies; when i mentioned swipe ISX away i meant swipe up so the default lockscreen is visible. not unlock the lockscreen. the 'Dialer Activation Method' works perfectly with the default lockscreen but not, as of now, when ISX is visible. i do not use passcode
also i would like to add that the more i have been using CallBar today the more i realize how convenient it is becoming. in fact, once the ISX compatibility issue is resolved i may consider hiding my default Phone.app from my homescreen

When I do dialer activation and see my favorites, some of them have text in the name that overlaps with the type of phone number (home, mobile, etc). Seems easy enough to fix maybe I should post on their Twitter?
Agree that it will replace my Phone app as preferred initiate/receive of phone calls and that ISX compatibility is the only notable issue I have.
v1.0-3 coming soonCallBar 1.0-3 ,fixes yesterday's reported issue with "LED Flash on Alert" , added Voicemail button, fixed status bar touches; adds ability to see dialed number when in a call, improved Favorites/Recents views, custom vibrations support, texttone bug fixed.

Is there a way to revert to the previous version?
i am going to remove CallBar until this issue is fixed
edit: the only way i know of going back to previous versions would be getting a hold of the desired .deb file and manually installing

I've never messed with the .deb files so I'll steer clear and just wait on the fix :o
v1.0-4 is out now AND Favorites works again. yay!
- Fixed a critical issue with Favorites button on the dialer.
- Fixed voicemail button not trying to open visual voicemail where applicable, but actually dialing the voicemail number.
- Fixed some reported issues with lockscreen dim timer.
- Fixed a reported issue with lock button pressed while in a call not locking the phone

fixed a couple of issuses on my end with this update. Now I'm just waiting on iblacklist support and we'll be good to go. I did get a hold of josh on that on twitter and he said they are working to get compatibility with that. He was super quick in the reply. I really like the devs behind this app. I wish more were like them!

i have to say that this tweak has been a little disappointing lately, with all the bugs and whatnot
i have not used it in a while since i was waiting for a very important phone call and my device crashed when trying to receive it. no bueno
