There are few things worse than wasting your precious cellphone minutes on telemarketers and phone solicitors who think you have nothing better to do with your time than listen to them ramble on about something you don't care the least bit about. Even worse if it's a recording or auto-dialer.
Blocked is the first socially-powered telemarketer database intended to fit in perfectly with the flow of your daily life. Simply install the app and perform the initial sync and you instantly have access to a vast database of known telemarketers that will all be labeled as "Do Not Answer" (or whatever other name you'd prefer). Then, any time you receive a call from a number that isn't recognized simple add it to the "Do Not Answer" contact using the iPhone's build-in addressbook and "Add to Existing Contact" button.
Any time you want the latest updates just run the app and hit the 'sync' button located in the top left! In addition to having the latest telemarketer list, you'll be contributing to the database through your own modifications to it!
Help us put an end to dinner-time phonecalls!
I guess some of you haven't been besieged by telesales calls, day and night, 7 days a week.......
This is not only a terrific app, at a reasonable price, but can only get better as we all add to the list. I HATE sales calls, have had several nasty exchanges with them, they have an attitude that they have the right to invade your privacy. I will never buy from telemarketers. Yes, one can create a Do Not Answer List, but you have to do it manually EVERY time, where a shared database can save time. The list is already pretty large. Another thing I appreciated: Scott, the author, responded quickly when my app did not work, and also when the fix was put into place. Someone that committed to service ought to be rewarded, not castigated. All you negative natterers, use the program before you rip it.
A wiki for calls to avoid!
The strength of this app is the central database that we can all contribute to...like a wiki for telemarketer numbers to avoid. T()ast - you should revise your rating...yes one can create their own list on their phone for free, but that approach is not going to benefit from a master shared list built by many. In your misunderstanding you unfairly criticized this app. If possible, I would like to see this app enhanced with call count tracking, phone number labels customized to one or two word industry categories (political, lawyer, home improvement, etc.), ratings or other type of warning alert level, and the ability to override the DO NOT ANSWER for a specific number received from the master list when sync-ing.
I recently upgraded to iphone from an Ericsson. I enjoyed having profiles on that phone that i could change to suit the occasion, ie, sleeping or at work. If i had it on home profile i could make a list and add certain numbers and all others would immediatly go to voice mail, the phone would never even ring. I purchased this app thinking it would do the same thing. But i was wrong and my phone still rings. If there was a silent ring or a way to allow any Do Not Answer calls to go directly to voicemail that would be awesome.
