Hasn't been updated in almost 2 years so I assume it's basically been abandoned. I set it as the default dialer on my S7 but it isn't recognized and incoming calls use my stock dialer. The search for businesses does work so i'll leave it installed just for that purpose, it's nice if you want to call someone and you're not sure what their number is, just don't be surprised if the caller id doesn't work.
Nice idea. Faulty execution Supposed to block spam calls. The rare case it does you get multiple notifications. No time saved dismissing those. Answer cards cannot be disabled and do not work with stock answer card. So there are two answer cards onscreen the user has to fight with. If they resolved the conflicts with the stock dialer and toned back the notifications then the rating would be a solid 4.5.
Does not block..especially scammers. Ok, so I had a scam "you won a free cruise" number I did not answer 2 weeks ago. I verified it was a scammer on the net, so I went to the phone number log and "blocked" it. Got the same scammers spiel today. What do you know? The number matches the blocked phone number that called 2 weeks ago. Can't tell if it is succefully blocking other numbers, but you can tell if it's not blocking.
Useless I set this to only show up for people NOT in my phonebook. Instead, it only functions for people already in my phonebook. I've tried all available settings to no avail. Who wants caller ID for people they already know?
This app has potential. Even though it is set as the default dialer on my Samsung Galaxy S6, my old dialer app is answering calls. This needs to be fixed. It would be simpler if Facebook would allow people to sync to Facebook contacts to their phone contacts like they used to.
I have used this app for a long time now with no problems. But since I started unchecking the box to save a contact 'on my device' , my Hello contacts have started disappearing mostly at random. It's bad enough now, that I can add a new contact today with a phone number and more, then tomorrow it won't be there. I am going to start checking the box again to 'save to device' to see if this works, but if you could look into this, it would be very helpful.
