Detect income calls and execute http link

Hello everyone,
I have never used appinventor before and I am still discovering it.
What I am trying to acomplish is setting up an Android app to install in my cell phone, to run in background, to detect all income calls and open a link/url API that would add the name of the person to that link when a phone call is being received only.
It can be done? If yes, can anyone with more experience give me a guide?
Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the forum Marafado.

  • an app that can run in the background. Impossible with App Inventor 2. AI2 cannot create Service apps.
  • detect all income calls . What can be done with the Phone components: you can detect the incoming phone number (unless it is blocked) and if it is detected, possibly do something with additional coding The documentation is.* PhoneCall * PhoneNumberPicker
  • the phone call component cannot detect the name of the person who called
  • the phone call component can detect when the phone call is ended You probably can use it to use a WebViewer to go to a url link.

Be aware, the tool cannot automatically answer any received calls.

Can it be done? Probably not Marafado.

What can be done with App Inventor: Here are some resources to help you learn to use the AI2 tools. A very good way to learn App Inventor is to read the free Inventor's Manual here in the AI2 free online eBook ... the links are at the bottom of the Web page. The book 'teaches' users how to program with AI2 blocks.

There is a free programming course here and the aia files for the projects in the book are here:

How to do a lot of basic things with App Inventor are described here: .
