Launching today, the MyState app lets you know if it is a good time to call before you even dial. Compatible with iOS and Android devices, the smartphone application shows you if the contacts in your phone are on a call, saving you the effort of engaging in annoying games of phone tag.

Described by TechCrunch as "essentially a smarter contacts book," MyState app hopes to solve the persisting issue of frustration and wasted time trying to get a hold of people who are busy. The communication platform will even notify the contact that you are trying to reach them and will let you know when they become available again.

This works well for pressing matters that are best dealt with over the phone, rather than through less reliable forms of social media.
