Robocalls are the unwanted automated calls that you get, mostly from scammers and spammers but also sometimes from Marketing people and companies that don’t realise how annoying their pointless automated calls can be.
Robokiller is one of many APPS that claims to block automated calls from getting through to you.
It is also fun to use as it has Answer Bots to entertain you and confuse the callers.
Price: $2.99/month or $24.99/year for Android devices; $3.99/month or $29.99/year for iOS
Answer bots are short, amusing recordings that answer the phone for you. You can create your own answer bot, or you can use the standard answer bots that come with the app.
You can choose from answer bots with titles like “Morgan Freeman impersonator,” “Spoiled Child,” “Nonsense,” and one called “Default Answer Bot,” which lets callers know their call has been answered by an app and it’s been blocked.
There is also Random answer bot.
The answer bots are well setup – they don’t just say something then go quiet – there’s hhm, yes, carry on all the usual signs of someone listening, then an interruption from a co-worker asking something and so on and then – Oh yes, I meant to call you guys last week but I got distracted. Hold on a second. And so on.
Can lead to funny conversations.
See if Robokiller and Answer Bots make your life easier.
If you have had any fun at the expense of cold callers, spammers and the like – do let me know, by email.
