BlackList's review

    Published: 2015-05-28, by .

    Block unwanted calls or messages from contacts or from unknown numbers

    • Very Useful Features
    • Blocks Unknown Numbers
    • Poor UI
    • Not Integrated into Contacts

    "Blacklist: Block Unwanted Calls and Messages"


    The app gets the job done, but has a slightly confusing and unnatural user interface, causing some problems along the way. It needs a revamp in terms of GUI and general aesthetics.


    Blacklist does block unwanted calls from unknown numbers as well, which is great. It also has several settings and the customization is easy and yet flexible and large. This makes it a step ahead of it's competitors and also makes up for the confusing GUI.


    Blacklist does not have a nice user interface. The menus are strange and buttons and options are strangely placed. It almost seems like the app was made in a hurry. Along with this, it could have been integrated better onto the phone, and accessible from contacts to make things easier, but it isn't.

    It doesn't work you still have missed calls pop up. What happened to the good old days when you could just call and give them the number and bam! Its blocked. Now you have this and that and all this other stuff just to block a number and if you don't you are screwed and have to change your number because of one person.
