Mr. Number App Helps You Manage Your Real Social NetworkAndroid App Gives Users Complete Control Over Who Can Reach Them and When, and Keeps Track of Who Is Important to Them (March 19, 2012)
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/19/12 -- Mr. Number today announces a major update to its existing Android app, creating an integrated dialer, text messaging, and contact management app that will change the way people use their phones.
The new version of Mr. Number is a complete replacement for the Android phone and text apps. It helps users to manage their real social network -- the people who they call and text every day -- by organizing their conversations and contacts, keeping track of who is most important, identifying unknown numbers, and blocking people and companies that they don't want to hear from again.
Mr. Number has always blocked unwanted calls and texts and identified unknown numbers, based on a unique crowd-sourced directory of mobile phone numbers and spam. Nearly five million people have downloaded Mr. Number to date, but users wanted tighter integration with the native phone and text apps. The phone and text apps are among the weakest apps on Android phones, so Mr. Number redesigned them completely.
The full features in the new Mr. Number enable users to:
- See and respond to all calls and texts in one inbox with multiple views -- including a gallery of all the picture messages they've ever shared
- Always know who is trying to reach them with crowd-sourced Caller ID and decide what other people see when they call or text them
- Keep track of the contacts they text most often, who they need to call back, and who they haven't spoken to recently
- Block the people and companies they don't want to hear from again, including every known telemarketer and phone spammer in the US
- Let friends know when they're free to talk and when they are sending all calls to voicemail, with status for voice and text
"There are lots of cool messaging and social networking apps for smartphones. Many of them are more powerful and more fun to use than the basic phone and text apps," said Jason Devitt, CEO and co-founder of Mr. Number. "Mr. Number is like an update for your phone. It makes plain old voice and text as smart, personal, and fun as all the other apps you love, and it revolves around your real social network -- the people that you talk to every day."
