This iPhone App Lets You Filter Unwanted Phone Calls
Do you ever get fed up with incessant phone calls throughout your busy day? A new app has been launched to help you manage all those unwanted calls. Unlined is a brand new app that blocks and filters unwanted calls so you don’t lose focus during your day.
The unwanted calls we receive on a daily basis have gotten completely out of control. I know, personally, that only about one in five calls I get are from people I know or want to talk to.
The others are people trying to scam my social security number or warn me about my non-existent car warranty.
Luckily, this Unlined app fights those unwanted calls aggressively. With Offline, your phone will automatically send any unknown caller who calls your phone directly to voicemail. But the app’s capabilities don’t stop there.
Unlined app lets you decide which phone calls to make
In addition to sending unknown callers straight to voicemail, the Unlined app can also handle calls from known numbers, aka “Known Callers”.
When a known caller calls you, the caller will be prompted for the reason for the call. From there, the app sends your phone a notification where you can then read the reason for the call from the Unlined transcript to decide whether to answer or not.
And finally, you can set up a list of trusted callers. These numbers will be the only ones that can ring your phone directly. You can set this up with close friends and family numbers so you always know it’s important when your phone rings.
Unlined also integrates with your calendar, allowing you to screen your calls whenever you’re busy.
As someone who can’t stand the distractions of constant phone calls, I’m excited to see what Unlined is when it’s finally released for Android. Currently, the Unlined app is only available on iOS, and it’s still in the very early stages of development.
You can track the progress of the app on Product Hunt to track updates and new features. Or download the app on iOS and start screening your calls today.
