About 18 months ago we launched Mr. Number to help you screen your calls and texts, with powerful call and text blocking and the most accurate Caller ID service on the market. We believe that you have a right to know who’s calling you and that you have a right to block unwanted messages easily. Over 4 million people have downloaded Mr. Number so that they can identify mystery numbers and block people who won’t take no for an answer, spam texts, telemarketers, and other pests. With your help and feedback Mr. Number has become the highest rated and most downloaded app of its kind in the Android Market.
Today we’re releasing a major update to Mr. Number. The new version gives you even more control over who you are communicating with and allows you to call, text, block, and identify mystery numbers in one simple app. We want to help you strengthen the relationships that matter to you and break the ones that don’t, and this brings us one step closer to that goal.
Call and Text with Mr. Number
We’ve brought back the full history of your calls and texts, in style. You can see all your inbound and outbound calls and messages in one screen, and swipe left or right to see just calls, texts, or blocked messages. For the first time you can now reply to calls and texts from Mr. Number. You no longer have to switch from Mr. Number to the dialer to make a call and switch back to find out who called you yesterday. We think calling and texting, ID, and blocking (and more features yet to come) belong together in one app. Your friends don’t have to use Mr. Number (though we hope they all do), and you don’t have to use it as your main calling and texting app. You can use Mr. Number for blocking and Caller ID and continue to use the native apps for calling and texting. It’s your choice.
Last year we introduced the idea of status or availability for calls and texts, so that you could get more calls from the people you actually like. Many people loved the idea, but we got a lot of constructive criticism too. You had to switch from the dialer to our app to set your availability or to see someone else’s, you had to ‘friend’ people before you could see theirs, and some of the settings were mysterious.
The new version is much simpler. Mr. Number shows what mode your phone is in (vibrate, ringer off, all calls going to voicemail, airplane mode). Anyone who has you in their contacts can see this, plus a message if you add one, unless you’re blocking that person. Turn off your ringer outside the app and Mr. Number simply shows that your ringer is off, instead of guessing that you are “Busy”. (Some people keep their ringer off all the time.) And if you use Mr. Number for all your calling and texting, your availability and your contacts’ availability are right in front of you.
