    I do like this app. It catches most of the telemarketing call and in the event that it's not been identified as such, there is an option to report the number as a telemarketer. There is also a text option for those pesky telemarketing texts. Between the Nomorobo and Block caller option on my iPhone, I hardly get annoying telemarketing calls and texts.
  • Works great for me

    I was skeptical based on the other reviews and average rating, but this app has dramatically reduced or entirely eliminated robocalls coming to me. Was easy to install & set up. I highly recommend.
  • Good at filtering, not so good at design

    Let’s be clear, for ~2$/month this app will stop about 90, 95% of spam callers. It does what it claimed to. It can also block spam txts, tho I’ve haven’t really found that to be a problem, much less a problem that warrants letting this App have access to all the text of all my txts... creepy. Where this app gals short is backgrounding. It literally needs to be updated every day! Which is terribly annoying. If you miss manual updates for more than two days it starts sending it’s own spam-like notifications to update the database. I haven’t removed it because it works, but it’s a fine line. If any other app were this insistent for my attention I’d have removed it almost right away. So yeah - does what it should, but it would be great if the devs could figure out how background data works. Seriously, get it together!
  • No clear information about sharing with family

    I had to go to the developer’s website to find out adding my husband’s phone costs another $1.99 a month. Why does it state it can be shared with up to six family members, but not tell THAT?
  • Good app, bad pricing

    The app does what it promises, yet $1.50/month. Is too much. Perhaps $.50. Would make more sense. I’m cancelling the app, I can live with the robo calls
  • Doubled their rates for subscriptions

    First let me say this app absolutely works as advertised. It does a great job telling you about robocallers if it had them in their database. However since signing up a year ago they doubled their rates and never notified me of the change. They’re not worth twice what I was paying. So - removed.
  • Changed my rating to 2 stars.

    I started using Nomorobo last year and it performed very well, BUT it is nearly impossible for anybody to keep up with the scammers out there because they create (steal is a better word, but actually “spoof” is the correct term) hundreds if not thousands of phone numbers from real people. I’ve since found an app that (unlike Nomorobo) affords me to send the scoundrel caller to a fake “the number you are calling is no longer in use or has been disconnected. If you feel you have reached this number in error, please consult with directory assistance.” I also benefit from a free app from my specific cell phone service company that is good at blocking scoundrels that slip past other apps. The developer of Nomorobo needs to COMPLETELY stop informing me the call coming into my iPhone is a “scoundrel” and just kill and BLOCK the jerk, like newer apps are doing. Hard to believe that I was excited about Nomorobo many months ago and now I consider it more like a 2002 Plymouth compared to a 2018 Corvette.
  • Updates Not Happening, No Tech Support

    I signed up for Nomorobo on my Comcast landline phone account - it’s free - so I wanted to try the app for my iPhone 7, which I use with Comcast wireless service. Unfortunately, 24 hours after signing up for the two-week free trial, the hourly updates stopped. I checked all the phone settings and could not find anything wrong. I sent an email to the app tech support address asking for help. It’s been over a week, and I’ve not received an answer. Without updates and without any help to get the app working, it doesn’t make any sense for me to purchase the app after the trial period ends. I hope you have a better experience with Nomorobo than I did.
  • Doesn't catch all the scammers, but at least I feel like I'm doing something

    Without doing a thorough review of my call history, I'd say that Nomorobo correctly identifies about half of the presumed robocalls I get. (I don't answer if I don't know the number, so I can only assume the random numbers that don't leave messages are robo calls). The identified robo calls aren't blocked, but if I'm reading it right, identifying them as robo calls is the best the app can currently do. The last robo call I got wasn't identified as a robo caller when my phone rang, but when I looked it up in nomorobo, it was marked as a robo caller (and after that the app correctly flagged the number in my phone). Occasionally I get a legit robo call (like from my trash company) that gets flagged, but they leave messages, so it doesn't matter if I don't answer. Even though this isn't the most effective app, I still like it and will continue to pay for it because I feel like reporting numbers is the only thing I can do to "get back" at the people setting these scams up. It's cathartic, if not tremendously effective. I'd love to see a drop-down menu of choices for the "why are you reporting this number" instead of (or in addition to) the free-form text box. I would think that standardized answers would improve whatever analysis is going on behind the scenes, and people would be more likely to report numbers if they could tap once in a pre-filled reason instead of typing one out.

    Ran this app for 6 months. It blocked a few calls in the first month or two. After that nothing. I suspect it is still too difficult for this app to keep up with the spam industry.
