If I wanted caller ID I'd get an app to do that I loved this calculator app, it needed nothing changed. I have downgraded my review to 1 star because it isn't OK to just add a random feature like caller ID to an app like this. I know you can disable it but I shouldn't have to. ----- Previous review----- I've wanted a calculator application that accurately mimics a physical calculator (specifically the ability to input a full equation before evaluating it) for years. This is the first one I have come across that does that.
Why is a /calculator/ serving caller id?! I liked this app. It was one of two apps to survive my calculator app purge. Why did you decide to add caller id functions that deliver ads to me? Sure, caller id is a cool thing and ad supported content is fine if opted into. But what does /caller id/ have to do with using a /calculator/? Why did anybody think that was a sensible monetization? Your stakeholders (the people who downloaded your app) deserve an explanation. A form letter response like you've been giving won't cut it. Uninstalled for now.
Absolutely Terrible Spyware Negative reviews receive damage control messages. They justify their caller Id by saying you can disable it but it shouldn't be there in the first place. I understand you want to make money but this was the wrong way to go about it. Why do this on a calculator app? My casio doesn't also function as spyware and neither should this. No user benefits from this regardless of what you claim.
Caller ID Scam Gains access to your phone calls and records so that for every phone call you make, the maker gets money by bombarding you with ads. May or may not sell your contact information to companies. They're afraid to mention caller ID scam in description, you know something is up. It's a shady way to make money. Then they respond with feigned empathy. Beware.
Great Calculator Crap bloat ware attached Was great as just a calculator and would recommend over and over if it didn't contain cappy caller ID functions and call features. My calculator should not require these permissions and or have anything to do with my devices calls. This goes beyond just disabling those functions.
No more Really do not appreciate the opt-out (automatically on until you turn off) Caller ID feature. App updated and saw nothing about this feature being added until it popped up during a call. This means my privacy was already violated, sending unknown amounts of my info to a foreign company. This is a serious breach of trust. Uninstalling.
