Hi everyone!

We need your help now to iron out any remaining bugs before we embark on a daemon rebuild. Please download the app from the market and get testing! Here are the issues we want to address specifically:

- If you have problems regaining 3G/4G after the telephony restart. This should have been fixed. If not, please try "Slow radio restart" in Debugging and report your results!

- Issues moving list priorities on Light or Dark theme. Again, if you have issues, please switch to the other theme, try again and then report back.

- Restarting telephony - wait for 4G to come back (or not) then send reports.

- Notification color schemes. We are interested if the new notifications comply with the majority of frameworks.

Thank you in advance for all your great work, this ultra-awesome app is as much a child of yours as it is of ours :)

The most complete call and SMS management app on Android

Call Master is the most advanced call and text message firewall available for Android. With unique, powerful features and the proven reliability
of our root telephony daemon under the hood, this application is targeted at advanced users and professionals searching for an enterprise
quality solution that guarantees absolute stability.

If you find Call Master too complicated but like the power of its root telephony daemon, please have a look at our other call management app,
Root Call Blocker. It works just as effectively and may suit your needs better.


Advantages:

★ Blocked calls will never go through
★ Your screen will never turn on
★ Private call and SMS sandbox with log sweeper
★ Full password protection
★ Route message content to other numbers
★ Powerful widget


Features:

☆ Ultra flexible list creation
☆ Seven reject methods
☆ Filter SMS by content
☆ Automatic text routing and replies
☆ Regular expression and wildcard filters
☆ Custom notifications
☆ Backup encryption and password protection
☆ Powerful logging and sorting system
☆ Number testing
☆ Independent contact library for total privacy
☆ Profile scheduling
☆ Light and dark themes


Market Link: https://market.android.com/details?id=fahrbot.apps.blacklist&feature=search_result

This is a fully functional application. However, after a 24 hour demo period it will start nagging you to buy the Key, which will remove all nag
screens and timeouts from the interface. The nag screens are pretty light though, so users who dont want to spend can live with them.

I dont reply to PMs from most users. Youve been here a while now, you know why developers do this.

I have a suggestion for a feature in call master that I think would be nice to have, and I don't think it would be that hard at all to do.

I have mine set up so I have to enter a pin to access call master, but when you enter an incorrect pin it just exits out of the program. I think it would be nice to be able to set it up so you could execute custom tasks based on the pin entered. For example, imagine this scenario...

let's say my call master pin is 0000:
-0000 would allow access into call master.
-1111 would lock the phone.
-2222 would launch the phone app.
-3333 would launch the SMS app.
-4444 would do ___________.
-all others would exit the app.


You get the idea. Basically, it would allow the user to make someone think the program did something other than it actually does. Like if my girlfriend is messing with my phone and opens call master, prompted by a pin, asks me, "what's this?" I can enter 1111 and say, "that's just to lock my phone."

what do you think?

Yep i get the idea but its way too complicated - every once in a while i see one of these from users and just have to smile (in a gentle, fatherly way).

Once PP is released i plan on completely changing obfuscation anyway, it will be accessible through another app. Im deprecating the current system because of that damned fragmentation thing.

ATM just use a different icon with a password as well. That would do fine. You can also hide it entirely if the dialer works ok on your rom.

App has been updated with a number of critical fixes:

Call Master 1.6.3.14

Fixed a rare database related crash
Fixed a few minor device-specific UI bugs
Fixed translation format bugs (please be more careful when working with crowdin)
Added Portuguese and Simplified Chinese languages
"Close app on screen off" now on by default
Added "Keep private", "Ignore completely" and "Ignore and log" predefined lists

I would appreciate feedback from those who experienced the rare DB crash error - since we dont have any devices where its happening i cant be certain that it has been fixed, so let me know please!

I get calls via sip client called zoiper via data, besides traditional cellular number. Will the filter apply rules to both dialers (incoming sip & sim)?
