Helpful so far

I’d like to preface by saying i have an iphone 13 and i do not pay for the app (the free version works fine for my purposes) i was getting quite literally 3-5 texts a day spouting off some random republican campaign stuff that was very clearly a scam (if you get them you know what im talking about). not sure why i started getting them a year ago but every single one is addressed to my mom so that’s a possibility. either way i got tired of getting notifications every single day that i received a text only to find out it said something along the lines of “TRUMP NEEDS YOU” and the unknown senders feature for the iphone isn’t helpful in that department so i gave the app a try and oh my god the relief i feel now is immense. i used a few of the keywords that are always in the spam texts that id never say myself (stop=end for example) and it has worked GREAT. the junk folder does its job and i just check it every few days to report the texts ive gotten and check to make sure nothing important got sent there on accident. overall this has made using my phone so much better and if you’re tired of getting scam text notifications i highly reccomend it!

App not working after upgrade, and no support 👎 (Updated)

UPDATE 2: After finally getting the app to work on my new iPhone 15 Pro Max running the latest iOS (see update 1 below), I am now having issues with texts still coming through that contain keywords that I have set to be blocked. Not sure how to resolve.

UPDATE 1: Originally 1-star review with the following: No longer working after phone upgrade to iPhone 15 Pro Max. I was previously running an iPhone 13 Pro Max and the app working great. Now, when I open the app and go through setup, I get the message that says “Hmm, Somethings went wrong.” The app will also not let me add any more keywords to the block list. I have Textkiller enabled in my settings for the messages and the phone app. I am running an iPhone 15 Pro Max with the latest iOS. I have contacted support through email and have not gotten no response. Also tried chatting with support (which is nothing but the typical AI bot because I guess real people don’t want to work now), and the bot told me they couldn’t generate a support ticket for me. So now it looks like I’m dead in the water with this app. **UPDATE: App magically started working again within minutes after leaving 1-star review. I didn’t change anything and it was previously not working for like 2 days. Could be coincidence, but wanted to update the rating because the app actually does do great when working. This was the first time I had any issues with it.

Does the job!

I was getting multiple group text messages throughout the day and night. All have sexual innuendos. I never responded, and always blocked each of the 20 numbers/email addresses in the chat before deleting the message. Unfortunately, they kept coming, by simply changing a single number or email in the group, thus creating a new group. The other night I got 2 messages with sexual inference just before 4am. Because I have to be available for my job at all times, I can’t use Do Not Disturb or block all unknown messages at night.

The AT&T rep suggested I try TextKiller. Before I left the store, the app had already blocked 2 messages to a Junk folder! So far, it seems to do exactly what it is supposed to, and can even learn what is junk when you add keywords to scan for in the messages. However, I have found the junk messages still come through on my Apple Watch. There is a message next to the text saying “Possible Junk”. Is there a way to filter the messages on the Apple Watch that are blocked on my iPhone? The notifications are silent on the watch, but I still have to delete them manually.
