Very Useful App Developed By True Professionals
When I first downloaded this App I was disappointed because I could only remove the 600 blocked words that came with the App one at a time. I informed the Developer that removing these 600 words was too arduous for me. I wanted to populate the blocked word list for my own needs. In a matter of 2 days the Developer worked to revise the App to allow users to eliminate the predetermined 600 blocked word list in one step and create their own list from scratch. Users can still use the provided list and remove individual words if desired. So my 5 star rating recognizes both the usefulness of the App and the dedication the Developer has to it’s products and customers. I strongly recommend that anyone who is bothered by spam text messages use this App. Also check out other Apps offered by the Developer. Thank you for addressing my concern in a quick and professional manner.

Developer Response ,
Thank you for your review. We are happy to see the usefulness of the application for you.
Just what I was looking for. Initially I was concerned my messages were being screened through their server but my understanding is tbis is not the case.
I don’t have a need for the pre-made block list they’ve put together since I’m using the option to block anyone not in my contact list. Not sure if this has any affect on local device performance, but none that I can tell. I do have to remind myself to check the new tab periodically, but getting rid of the annoying alerts for useless messages and robos was my goal and this works perfectly!
One request for the developer that’s probably simple: would it be possible to sort (or add an option to sort) the list of words I have allowed?
Low investment, high return.
Developer Response ,
Many thanks for your kind words. We are glad to know that the application is able to meet your needs. We will definitely add the option to sort the allowed words list in our upcoming releases.
