Review from Femi Ade-Williams
Generally good. Improve on it so that it can help when not connected to internet.
This app has started pop up notifications even when notifications are turned off in settings. If you don't mind then its still okay, but it is really easy to decline calls without an app. I only used the app to avoid having games interupted by the phones ui popping up for calls I do not want. If they remove the pop up notifications it would be a good app again.
What was once no-click perfection, is no more. Each call you make, each call you get, you now have to remove the pop-up that asks you if you would like another feature. Annoying and inefficient. I'll give it 5 stars if it goes back to zero maintenance.
I used to like this app just fine, it did what I wanted/needed it to do. Then, out of nowhere, it started doing extra things & has become a nuisance. For example, when driving with GPS & receiving a call, I don't need or want my GPS hijacked so Call Blocker can tell me who I just spoke with. As far as I'm concerned, it's only job is to block unwanted calls, preferably in the background. My phone already does an excellent job of informing me who's calling (and more relevantly, does it before I even pick up the phone.) Needless to say, this app's not long for my phone, surviving just long enough for me to find it's replacement.
I've tried a bunch of the call blockers and this one is hands down, THE BEST available. The only downside is, if you are in a call and a blocked number calls, the app hangs up your current call. So if you are making an important call make sure you force close the app before calling or during the call. But this seems to be a flaw in all of the block call apps.
This is the ONLY call block app that works on my android. The others did nothing. I love it. My phone doesn't even ring and I'm not interrupted by unwanted calls. Thanks so much, if only it worked for my SMS.... I was told the android SMS cannot be blocked with any app.
I've been using this same App since my very first Smartphone, a HTC Thunderbolt. It's worked perfectly for every device since, which I jumped to a Samsung Galaxy Skyrocket 2, a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8. It works because it gives you 3 different lists. A Contacts only list, a whitelist and a blacklist. If you get a telemarketer, you just add the phone number or text to the blacklist. If you make a mistake and you put a contact on your blacklist, it saves the call list for you to check. Works great. The only other thing I do is I also have Talkatone, it's a free internet phone service. I never give that phone number to anyone but family and close friends. You can talk and text for free. These measures I've taken, I don't get nearly as many telemarketers or harassment.
