Text Blocker meets us a brief user’s guide, which clearly shows how to operate the program. Not without an advertising banner. Interface – English-speaking.

When it comes to the latter, he single window with three dots in the upper right corner. You can (and should be for all Android 4.4 and above) to make Text Blocker default application to work with SMS.

As for the settings, then among them the ability to choose the level of anti-spam, configure notifications and activate the vibration, thus making Text Blocker into a kind of SMS-messenger.

Before us is simple and intuitive, shareware the SMS-spam with a simple interface In this case, it can be rehabilitated, but effectively blocking spam..
 



Spam

Emphasis on the notification is not accidental, since the decision as shared in the same time and hides, that is simply suppresses unwanted messages.
 

At the same time last come without sound and can only be displayed in a Programme. You yourself must move the sender’s whitelist, or risk missing important SMS.

Now let’s see what it’s costing system.
 



The load on the system

To my surprise trehmegabaytny kid with disabilities consumes not a child – 174 MB RAM with zero CPU load. Hmmm … This battery sags 5.2%, which is not good. The load on the aforesaid – 30% within an hour, the rate of energy consumption – 85.72 mW.

With regard to permits, here saddens unlimited access to the internet, so the banners already flowed 13.3 MB. Text Blocker is compatible with Android 2.3 or higher, contains advertising, paid premium features and weighs in at 17.5 MB system.

Conclusions

From my point of view, Text Blocker app is disastrous, despite the positive reviews on Google Play and evaluation 4.1. Here and the three-put can be a stretch. Among the shortcomings: a paid application, just hide notifications, advertising, eats resources and kills Internet traffic. Some cons, so it deserved.
