Sync.ME - Caller ID & Spam Block - App Review



Do you get irritated with pesky telemarketers, or other people you would rather didn't attempt to phone you? This App will help that feeling, as well as some rather pleasant by-products.

Now for the ACIDS test:

Aesthetics
The first thing you need to do is register your own number through the App. This is in order to enable you to synchronise your contacts on Sync.ME (one of the by-products).

Having done that, you can synchronise your Facebook, Linkedin, and Google+ contacts. This means that when you are called by one of them (or look at their contact details), you will see their mug shot in all its glory.

By accessing the settings option you can set your Sync.ME record and any change will be reflected to any other contacts using the system (very useful for a change of address or phone number).

The settings also allow you to detect spam and telemarketers from Sync.ME's database, so you could be sure that the unknown (to you) number calling isn't worth replying to.

There is also a reverse number look-up feature which is useful, although (not unexpectedly) not totally comprehensive.

Cost
The App Costs $0, although there is also a premium feature to unlock additional numbers.

Indispensability
If you really want contact photos or better call screening, this App covers both.

Dependability
The App can obviously only check against the Sync.ME database and your social network contacts who have the same information as on your contact details.

Security
You need to share your mobile number and then access to your contact details. The social media information you receive should only be the publicly available information.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Very useful in more than one way.
