Over the years I have had my fair share of wrong numbers, telemarketers, fax machines, and other incoming calls I would rather block then let through. A while back we told you about BlockIt. It is a simple headless application that grants users the ability to block calls from their address book, phone log, and numbers inputted manually. Once all are entered, BlockIt does the rest to ensure you are not interrupted with these annoying calls.

Recently, the application received a slight update and the list of improvements are shown below to help with the experience.

New features in version

  • App Password Protect
  • Add Auto Reply Quick Access Action Item
  • Import phone number from CSV file to Black List
  • Add Reply Message When Blocked
  • User Guide
