Seems to be highly accurate. It doesn't block calls, (which is a benefit for me); instead a rating comes up based on previous user experiences with the phone number. You can read detailed info if a person leaves an in-depth review, which is very helpful. You also don't run the risk of a call being incorrectly blocked (ie a call responding to a job application). It's accurate and the user input adds the extra info that is beyond helpful. Highly recommended

Hello Michelle, thanks for your nice review. In the free version you can block single numbers (if you want), when you are on the number overview page. Otherwise the caller ID alone is helpful enough to decide whether to pick up or not. Lots of fun with the app. Your tellows team

It could not block spam calls and yet always inaccurately shows junk calls from other countries, but actually, many times, when I picked up my cellphone to answer the calls, which were from my own town! However, I directly checked the numbers by browsing your websites, it would attempt to tell the sources of the suspected calls those were in my own town. Queer apps!

Fantastic! This is exactly what I have been looking for! It automatically shows the name of the caller like a land line caller ID. It says "scam" whenever it's a # associated with a scam. It keeps a call history log too! The ads are not intrusive at all for the free version
