    There must be some kind of all in one tool. I had found many effective applications for iPhone but when it comes to android then there are different apps for each different thing. Like for call you have a different app, while for sms you have different. iPhone has a app called as Silent circle that does all the job at one place. That means you have a full privacy package in one app itself. There must be something like this for android.
