Are you constantly disturbed by telemarketers calls on your phone? There's a way to block them forever and decrease your stress level: Blockr. One of the easiest way to avoid those annoying call is identifying the phone numbers and blacklist them. Blockr allows you to that in a simple yet intuitive way. As the app keeps running, it will block any number included in the blacklist, unless you set it to "stop blocking".
Adding phone numbers to the blacklist is as easy as input them manually, take them from "call log" or from "contacts" (phonebook). Once done, any incoming call from those numbers will be blocked. You can always edit your blacklist, adding more or removing some of the numbers set in there. In addition, from settings, you can choose notification preferences.
The app is set in a sober layout which otherwise is quite enough for what it does. However, I'm missing some features like setting what to do when a phone call is blocked (reject call, send a message, set reminders for calling later...). Besides, the app does what it promises properly.
Keep blocking. Live in peace.
