Call Bliss silences unwanted callers, while ensuring you never miss important calls, making Do Not Disturb easier to use and more powerful. Allow or silence callers and groups of callers with a single tap, or automatically by location, Home, Work, or anywhere else.
At the office? Allow co-workers and your boss to ring your phone. At home? Ignored! Create groups of callers such as Friends, Family, Co-Workers, Bowling Team, and allow or silence all of them with one tap.
Includes special modes. Put unwanted callers in the "ExcludeList", while ensuring other contacts can always reach you. Need to focus on a project? "Suppress All Callers" mode sends all calls to voicemail until your project is done.
TUAW: "Call Bliss 1.1 improves on the original"

CBS News: "works great"
PC World: "Call Bliss turbocharges iOS"
LifeHacker: "it works well and adds a lot of features to Do Not Disturb"
Note: Call Bliss requires an iPhone with iOS 6 or later. Do Not Disturb does NOT BLOCK unwanted calls, it silences unwanted and unknown callers, unwanted callers can still leave voicemails. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life
This app has been updated by Apple to display the Apple Watch app icon.
Ratings and Reviews
I could never get this app to work. It seemed to work sometimes, but it would fail to recogniz where the phone was. It would report that it had left the place I set it not to ring when I had not been in that place. It was hit and miss on not ringing when I was in that place. I don't know if it was not blocking calls that were not in my contact list. I don't know if it was letting calls that were through or not. I finally had to take the app off my phone for fear of I wasn't getting calls.
I've use this for about nine months now. I have found it to be extremely useful for turning my phone off for work calls once I get home. This is enabled me to give my cell phone out to customers and still not get their phone calls and text after work if I don't want them. Works great, never crashed my phone, no real problems once I got through the set up. I also want to say that I sent them a email requesting a change and I got an email back within hours saying they were working on it. How great is that!
Now works perfectly.
Wrote Review 2 weeks ago gave 4 stars. So, won't repeat. Contacted Developer Randy. Previous concern was inability to receive texts from contact list. As of iOS 10.3, Apple lets you use the Emergency bypass "by contact" This means you can allow texts from whoever you wish, and their texts will come through. This now is by far the best app for blocking unwanted calls. 5 STARS ALL THE WAY.
