Calls only 13sec and cuts off the call 1/5
On 13 secs so you don’t hear the call
Pointless and expensive 1/5
It’s like I’m paying them to collect and report phone numbers for them. Never blocks anything. I get as many calls as ever.
Battery Killer 2/5
By scott n cbus
Love the app. Works great but drains my iPhone battery by the end of the day. It seems to be always running in the background even after closing the app
Doesn't work as advertised; crashes constantly 1/5
By Festus Martingale
Great idea in theory but in practice, the app blocks very few spam calls and zero SMS calls.
Crashes and hangs constantly.
The 'deactivate my phone' link leads to a dead webpage. I'm not saying RoboKiller is a scam but.... it's kind of a scam.
Your better off using do-not-disturb mode plus a white list.
Doesn’t Catch Much 2/5
This is a great idea but it only catches about 25% of the spam calls I get. Most puzzling is that my phone displays certain calls as “Scam Likely” and the app doesn’t stop them. Pretty lame for a paid app
By Helping U 123
Did Robo hide the fact that they charge a $6 monthly fee in addition to the $30 annual subscription? I think so!
Letting a lot through. 2/5
When I installed this a year ago, RoboKiller was almost 100% at identifying spam callers, and blocking them. The last couple of months, it’s dropped off to less than 20%. I just got a call from Equatorial Guiana at +240 3515981 It went through, obviously I didn’t answer. Seriously RoboKiller, you think that might be a legit call? You guys really need to fix whatever software you’re using, it ain’t working lately...
Doesn’t work 1/5
I have had this for months and I still get numerous spam calls and I would report them and they still call me. The app does not work at all out of the supposed “recordings” none of them are answered by the actual caller except one putt of multiple calls “recorded” I don’t not recommend this app.
Garbage App 1/5
Cancelled my subscription after one month and zero blocked robocalls ( numerous successful ones). Complete waste of money—don’t be deceived.
To begin with I think Robokiller should be paying me for reporting the 8 to 12 calls I get a day. In The month of July I received somewhere in the neighborhood of 210 calls, mostly spoofed number from those A -holes from India trying to sell pharmaceuticals. Out of those calls Robokiller answered around 4 and the thing is my iPhone still rang on those calls bothering me. As I’m typing this I received another call but now I only see a missed call because the new IOS 13 will silence all unknown calls that aren’t in your contact list and lets them leave a message and of course the spam ones don’t leave a message or . That’s fantastic! Good bye Robokiller
I deleted this app because ATT has a free version. This app did something to my phone where I’m no longer able to get my voicemails. I use this phone to run my business and this is making difficult.
App not blocking calls 1/5
By Zach Plank
This app is doing absolutely nothing. I’ve set it up exactly as it has instructed me to and I am continuing to receive multiple spam calls a day. I’m not sure what else I need to do differently. I’ve signed up for a subscription as well so I shouldn’t have to pay money for something that’s not working.
Update: received 3 Spam calls today and none of them have been blocked. What am I paying for?
I had high hopes for this app, but it only blocks about 1 in 10 spam calls. The rest still ring through.
Calls increased and blocked less. If I could give 0 stars I would. It's as if the robo answers tell the scammers that your number is a working phone. It worked at first and slowly got worse and worse... Leading to a "horrible" review.
It’s great when it does what it’s supposed to do, sadly that is less often then I’d like for a paid app. I frequently have calls blocked that shouldn’t be (my veterinarian, my doctor’s office, etc), and the app locks up constantly and won’t open at all. The only way to get it unstuck is to delete the app and reinstall which I’ve done several times now. When this thing works it’s a lifesaver, but they need to get the kinks out of it before I’ll install it again.
It usually works 3/5
It has blocked more spam than other blockers but some spam still gets through— the issue I have with the app is that when you tap it open it usually doesn’t— developer needs to fix it so it opens. (As I am writing this review another spam call got through!)
Not happy at all!!!! 1/5
Does not work! 1 month subscription turned out to be from September 11 to September 23, not full 30-31 days... Robo-calls kept on coming through even with App running.. Not happy, can’t recommend!
Love it! 5/5
By Midtown Lashes
Love listening to the recorded calls lol
works great for a couple of months 1/5
This product works great but after a couple of months it becomes less affective and this increases over time until it stops working totally.
Love Robo BUT.... 3/5
I love this app but I can’t listen to the blocked messages. Which is an issue Incase it’s a call that I need to get. I’m going to delete and reinstall to see if that helps.
Never opens up and I paid a year 2/5
I was absolutely thrilled about this app but time and time again I can’t even get the app to load up to see anything except the blue screen with the spinner that stays spinner. I’ve updated the app to make sure that wasn’t it but I’m paid up until next year and all it is doing now is taking up space on my phone instead of helping me. How am I to use this app and it won’t open up for me to check, see, or do anything. Got a vm right now I can’t even get to. I want my money back!!!!! I can’t even use the app to contact customer support so here I am.
It wasn’t effective for me 1/5
I got spam calls just as frequently after installing this app as before.
Garbage product 1/5
It started out being quite an excellent (and frankly hilarious) app. I loved that it blocked all the spam calls. These days though, it has been completely garbage letting through several spam calls a day, while blocking important and legitimate calls I was expecting from Verizon and Fidelity. I cannot use this app any longer just due to how bad it is.
Needs more block ranges. 1/5
This thing barely works. Calls still ring through, even when blocked.
I cannot block any more numbers, because there is a limit.
I need to block the entire area code, unless the number is in my contacts. There is no way to do this. You can only block (xxx) - xx ranges.
A rather pricey subscription for a service that only half works.
Starts off by demanding your phone number then the next screen is kcuf you give me money and you know any company that demand you confirm your phone number is gonna sell it to anybody and these clowns are in the business on both sides.
Does not block calls 1/5
It’s September 2019. I haven’t had a call blocked by this app since May. I cancelled my subscription.
Worked great until the update 1/5
After the update, my Verizon voicemail is screwed up. My default greeting was changed without my permission or knowledge. I would sometimes get a texted voicemail and sometimes not. I don’t want to go into the app to retrieve my voicemail. Sometimes my phone wouldn’t ring with a trusted number. Started to feel like this app was taking over way more than it should. Uninstall for now.
Update: Tried again two years later. None of these issues were fixed. Renders Verizon voicemail inactive. Then I had to jump through all kids of hoops to deactivate. Never again.
Robo disappointing 1/5
By Sugarlands coolbreeze
I gave this program 1 star simply because of the limitations and errors. My phone is my business. I can’t have a program blocking potential clients and certainly don’t want a program telling my clients if they chose to speak to me dial another number. I have canceled mine. Cd groves.
Spam txt 1/5
Still getting spam txt, didn’t do a thing that I already wasn’t doing! Have to get txt, open, report, & block then delete! Difference was i was building their data base & paying them for the privilege!!
Doesnt Work Anymore 1/5
Worked well until a couple weeks ago. Started getting lots of spam calls that used to be blocked, usually near 5 a day. About 5 min after each call that I decline, I get a notification from robocall saying that it blocked a spam call. The call went through normal, just doesnt work anymore.
I think this is #1 spam 1/5
I did not find free way to install.
It demands money during installation and you phone #
Mint mobile support? 4/5
I switched to Mint and can’t seem to get the app enabled, even from step zero. Really liked it before the switch.
No tech support!!!! 1/5
By Joan Fletcher
I’ve had robokiller for a couple years . It worked pretty well except why would contacts come up ?? Weird but no big deal .
So , for three months I can not open app to see anything. It just spins and spins . There was absolutely nothing wrong in settings or the iPhone 10 itself . I got billed a couple times and I blew it off , this month I said no to charge. Apple wanted to know why , so I tried to write my issue and it’s multiple choice , not any of my issues . I know that was Apple not whoever runs RK , but no way to contact them. No tech support! So, now unless I come up with a nickname I can’t register this complaint!
Good idea, bad execution. Unstable. 1/5
The programmers who wrote this don’t seem to understand how inconvenient it is to have to delete and then reinstall the app in order to set it up in an iPhone. Or perhaps they don’t care. I’m not sure.
For some reason this app continually shuts itself off and has to be reactivated through the settings of the phone. The problem is that reinstalling the app also requires a soft reset of the phone. The switching on of the app features only occurs after completely shutting the phone off before reinstalling the app.
This is just unnecessary and also seems to make the developers look like they’re just lazy for not taking care of this problem.
I had this app a year ago and stopped using it because of this problem. I see the review and comments I offered then didn’t result in any change. Good job fellas! I’m out. I’ll look for someone who has taken the time to do it right. I will not be coming back.
Blocks all callers 1/5
I missed my vet calling to renew my dogs medication because RoboKiller blocked the call. My dog now can’t breathe all night. I also missed another very important call. It literally blocks calls that aren’t in your contacts EXCEPT the annoying calls.
I like this 1/5
I have had this for a least a year. It worked great until the last week or so. I’m getting about five spam calls a day now
So far it has killed all but one call. So for me it is near perfect. Pretty easy to set up, I am a small business owner and I get many calls since my number is out on the internet on my advertising page such a Facebook as well as my own web page.
I think you will like this as well.
Good app 4/5
By Tajo Go
A few call will still get thru and doesn’t protect text messages but is a good app
Really useful now not as much 3/5
Something changed recently. Most of the calls go through now. Only a couple get caught. Whatever was changed on the app is not for the better. I am probably going to give up on it now since it is almost worthless
This app has reduced spam and spoofed calls by over the 90% predicted! I do miss the homicide investigator answer bot - PLEASE bring it or something like it back! Tom Macabe is perfect! That answer bot never failed to provide lots of laughs when folks decided to talk with it!!!!
Purchased this app in hopes that I would stop receiving spam calls... NOPE. Still receive spam calls 10-20 times a day even after blocking the numbers in the app. I want a refund because that’s $30 wasted on this app!!!!
App has quit working 2/5
By chris palavicini
This has really stopped working, I’d say 20% of my spam calls are blocked now. When I got the app last year it worked great? Same phone don’t know what’s changed. I gave it an extra star just Incase they fix it. I had this rated 5..
Won't go pass choose a subscription 1/5
I been trying to use this app but evertime I try it won't go pass the choose a subscription screen and it just sits there and loads and never gets passed that.
Constantly have problems with this app. Constantly have to remove and reinstall. I give up this is trash app.
Misleading, Subscription Based 1/5
App is “free to download” but
it’s subscription based so it doesn’t work without paying. Just a misleading app ploy. Garbage. Doesn’t say anything about a subscription before you download it.
What gives? 3/5
I’ve put a few numbers on the ‘block’ list and have had the same numbers work around the system and still call me. I’m paying for the app so it needs to work, properly.
Doesn’t work 1/5
It worked at first, but now I get spam calls and texts every day
Only works ½ the time 2/5
Downloading app for the 4th time now as it does not come on, just a spninning ball. Not happy
Upgraded my IOS & app will not open
Downgrade to one star
Deleted app as it would not open
No help from company
Can’t recommend 2/5
Initially it worked great. Lately it only works for 2-3 days. Then you have to go through the setup process again. Also does not work well with iPad. It will block a call on my phone, but it still rings through on my iPad.
Not worth the money 1/5
Scammers are getting smarter and smarter and this app isn’t smart enough to stop them! Will not block scammers using local numbers so you answer thinking it’s a legitimate business call and it’s a solicitation call or scam! Save your money!
