    Pfft, sounds like spyware: some third party gets told about user calls, and who-knows-what else. I presume each user is individually identified too, and consequentially trackable?

    Or does the thing work sensibly, downloading a blacklist periodically (WITH manual control options, inc. proxy) and letting the user’s machine make the choice? ie truly empower the user.

    Now if you could do one for a windows phone that would be cool

    @anon (comment #1): Bl**dy hell, no pleasing some people is there?

    No dear, they’re not going to download their entire database onto your phone: I suspect it’s a bit large at this point and you wouldn’t thank them for it – how “empowered” will you feel if your phone’s effectively bricked due to its storage being 101% full? (To say nothing of the data charges!) I guess it’d be another solution to the nuisance call problem, though :/

    You can blithely label this app “spyware” if you like, but those sound like the bleatings of the type of person who can’t be arsed to read terms & conditions. Today’s reality when it comes to “social” apps is that yes, if you are not paying them, then you’re not the customer, you’re the product. This is a choice you make when you use a “free” service like this, Facebook, whatever: it’s up to you whether the ads, data-mining, etc. that will be part of the deal are worth it for the benefits the service brings you. Apparently you value your privacy more than freedom from phone-spam and harassment, so this app isn’t for you. Fair enough but don’t expect everyone to share your values. I mean why are you even posting this?
