How to fake a call

Stuck listening to the office gossip for 20 minutes? In a meeting that is dragging on? Having dinner with that Facebook friend? An awkward date? We’ve all been in situations like these and we usually have to go with the flow. But not anymore because there is an app for that.

You won’t be judged by friends who you have asked begged to call you with an emergency that needs your attention right now. Think of it as becoming your own wingman.

Fake Call 2

What can you do with this app? More like what can’t you do.


Key features: create a fake call with an image, number and even record your own voice. You know, the basic stuff.

More features: trick your friends that a celeb is calling your phone. That line was taken straight from the app descirption. I got a call from none other than Oom Steve.

You could also pretend that you have a hot significant other. This is particularly helpful when someone you don’t like back is hitting on you. Do the kids still say hitting on you?

Other features include teaching your children how to use phones, but my favourite has to be “prank call yourself”.

Get it for Android. Not available on iOS, but you can get pretty much the same thing here.

*Fake Call 3 also exists, but it had a lower rating than version 2.

I'd love to chat to you some more.


I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
