Samsung WP7 Call Blocking App Ripped and Shared

Even though the release of Windows 8 has come and gone, there is still some life left in Windows Phone 7. Samsung recently released a call blocking application for WP7, and now everyone can get their hands on it.

The XAP was posted by XDA Senior Member sutt359 for everyone to try. Surprisingly enough, there has been a flurry of discussion as to how to make it work. A number of users and developers have re-released modded versions. However, each device it’s been tested on seems to have a different issues. With some, the call blocking works, but users can’t get contacts saved to it. Some can’t get the call blocking to work at all. It all depends on which drivers your phone has.

There was a version released that actually does work for at least a couple of devices, but it is entirely in Chinese. So if this is a function you absolutely have to have, you’ll have to deal with a little Chinese to get it. It likely won’t be long until the members and devs fix the English version, though.

For more details,check out the original thread.

Best of Matias Duarte – “Ask Me Anything” Summary

Matias Duarte, VP of Design at Google, is perhaps one of the most prolific software designers of recent times: Material Design, the highest exponent of Android beauty, is Matias' own brainchild.
