I suggest ...

Answer Call

Answer or pick up a call.

One button, mute music, wait 1 sec and then answer an incoming call. Very useful when working from home (or office where you can have music on) so you don't have to fumble with music control and phone. Could also mute sound on TV so you can have the ballgame on while working.

        Okay, so this is not something you can do in the flic app but it can be solved through an app called Tasker. Unfortunately, it only works on android but in the Tasker app, you do this:

        1. Download Tasks from android app store. The app costs a little money but it's worth it.
        2. Open the app and add a new profile through the plus in the lower right corner.
        3. Select event > plug in and flic
        4. Now you have to choose your button and what action on the button you want to mean to answer the phone. I picked a single click. Then tap back on your phone. It saves your choices
        5. Add a task. Select phone and take call, then press back to save.

        I'm not good enough in Tasker to make the first simple klick on the flick answer the call and the second klick end the call so I added double-click on the flic as the action for hanging up the phone call. Just create a new profile with the end call event If you know how to create this rule within the app Tasker, please share :)

        Now I can use my flic as a hands free solution for my MC!

        This function would be helpful for drivers as well as motorcyclist with intercom systems.
        Flic can be mounted pretty much anywhere. In my car having it closer to my steering wheel is safer than using my stereo's answer button.
        I'm surprised this hasn't been implemented yet.

        This was one of the promised features when I bought it. Of course the vendor does not remember.
        As you say, when you wear gloves or so, you want accept an incoming call.
        How can this absolut basic functionality be missing. Hang up is available.

        Cannot understand, This is fundamental

        YES thats why I bought the flic.. I really thougt it could do this already... Maybe I'll return it and wait for it

        This would also be great for those with vision impairment who can't see where the answer button is on their phones. Allowing them not to miss calls.

        When my iphone gets an incoming call. instead of picking up the phone and press the button, clic the flic and the phone is answered.

        For those of us who don't have smart cars that integrate with our phones (mine is 13 years old and still going strong), this would be a great 'hands free' option.
