RingFilter 2.4 Released! See Release Info for details on changes. RingFilter can now Block Calls or send them directly to Voicemail! Also, you can use Contacts from your Contact List, or use Number Prefixes to match incoming calls that begin with your entered Number Prefix!
IMPORTANT: If you are using Android 2.3 or later, or plan on updating to version 2.3, please take this into consideration. The Android developers took away a security permission that RingFilter requires in order to Block Calls and send them to Voicemail. Without this permission available, the functionality of RingFilter will be degraded, and it will be unable to Block Calls or send them to Voicemail. We strongly encourage you to open Android Issue 15031 and STAR IT. To Star it, you may need to log in using your Google account first. Android needs to hear from you, the users!
When you update, if you currently have a Schedule that is monitoring, your Notification Icons will disappear. This is normal, and only happens during the update process. Don’t worry, as RingFilter is still monitoring. Simply open RingFilter and it will reset your notifications so they appear in your Notification Bar again!
Hello and welcome to the official comments page for RingFilter! First of all, I want to thank you for being here! RingFilter is an Android program designed by Paul Dennis of ZeroIO LLC. If you are here, you most likely know what RingFilter is. If you are not familiar with RingFilter, below is a brief explanation of what RingFilter does. You may also watch the YouTube demonstration below, or see if your question has already been answerd the FAQ page:
So whether you own RingFilter or are thinking about purchasing it ($4.95 on the Android Market), please feel free to comment with your thoughts, questions, suggestions, etc!
As a quick intro, my name is Paul Dennis, and when I designed RingFilter, I wanted to create a tool that would give people the freedom to control exactly when their phone will ring and when it will be silent. However, I didn’t feel like this was enough control. I wanted people to be able to control exactly who could call or text and have the phone ring or play a notification, while having the phone silence the others. By creating RingFilter, I was able to accomplish that.
RingFilter NEVER blocks calls or texts, so even if it silences them, you have the notification waiting for you. The big difference here is that it puts you in control of when you want to check your notifications (missed calls or texts waiting). It gives people control over who they want to allow to call or text and have the phone actually ring or play a notification. For other people, if they choose, the phone will stay silent when they call or text. Using as many Groups and Schedules in RingFilter as you want, you can set it up to control exactly when your phone will ring for exactly the contacts you choose!
