Call Blocking Apps Finally Coming With BlackBerry 10.3 APIs

Block Calls Block Calls3

Jason pointed out to me (via Omnitech once again) another great improvement coming in BlackBerry OS 10.3 that will really make power legacy users feel at home. BlackBerry has opened up the API that essentially allows call blocking apps to work on BlackBerry 10 just like they did on legacy devices. Essentially what changed is that developers now have access to the incoming caller ID number so they can decide based on that if the call should be dropped. Thankfully BlackBerry finally deemed this crucial API was important enough to release.

PS: The screenshots above are from a quick app that Omnitech mocked up.

  1. THat’s not a mock-up. Its an actual app. Well, it’s still in beta and is a call blocking app by 10soft. The same guys who made watcher.

  2. Nice I cannot wait. Thanks for the heads up. I have been waiting for a call blocking app.

  3. BTW, there will be tones of call blocking apps once OS10.3 is released. Take a look at appworld now.

  4. LOL my personal phone number is on the list 😀
