This is an iPhone app that queries after you initiate a call (namely a call to a customer service number), so that it can promopt you with instructions on how to circumvent the phone menu and talk to an actual human. Here's a demo.

The web site lists instructions on how to reach a real person when calling various customer service and support lines. It has a lot of good information, but isn't easy to navigate with the ibrick, so I thought it would be helpful to be promopted of these instructions right after you type a number.

After dialing a number. Here, I dialed Auto Zone customer support and the apps says that to reach a real person, instead of a phone menu, you should "Press 1; at prompt press 2; at prompt press 0"
