Android app of the day: Not Call Log

It boggles my mind, that with all the advancements over the years in cell phone technology I'm still suffering from the same age old problem: accidental phone calls (or, using the term my brother introduced me to: Butt Dialing. My that term sounds dirty.) The G1 is running one of the most advanced operating systems out there, and yet, I seem to be calling folks accidentally more now than ever.

I've got the phone set to lock automatically, and have the nifty Screen Lock feature in place. Doesn't make a bit of difference. I've called my mom, clients - heck, I call my brother on a near daily basis.

I think I've traced the issue to the fact that when you hang up a call, it takes you to the Call Log. That's a reasonable move. But, from the call log, you're a single button press away from calling someone back.

Searching through the market, I may have found a solution. The Not Call Log app has the description:

Do you hate being able to "accidentally" redial someone from your call log after your phone call is over? (I do, I do!!)

No more embarrassing phone calls that you dont' know you are making! (Whooo!)

(Emphasis above was added by me)

The app is drop dead simple. You install it, run it, and choose where you want your calls to go to after you hang up. I've got mine setup to go home.

I should have it setup to go to an application which needs me to enter a code to have me leave it.

Hopefully, this will at least cut down on the number of accidental calls.

The app is free, and you can download it from the Market. Or, you can use the scan the QR code below with your phone:
