An intro to Block Calls

Most of us know what it feels like to be pestered with unwanted calls from people we really don’t want to talk to! At Pepper we see everything from the app development point of view and hence when one of our members complained about a persistently annoying caller we sprung to action and Block Calls was born!

Block Calls is a BlackBerry app that you should not be without. It has some pretty cool features and most importantly will free your life of annoying people, obnoxious marketers and their calls!

Here is a basic intro to Block Calls and how it works. For more information and to buy this app please head on over to our Block Calls product page:

Block Calls will block all unwanted incoming calls on your phone. You can maintain a blacklist of numbers that will never ring. When a caller on blacklist calls you, his call will be immediately rejected. You can add members to your blacklist in two different ways:

By selecting numbers from the address book
By typing in the number of the unwanted caller

The story behind SMS Backup

We, the team at Pepper, try our utmost to bring you fun, exciting, useful and innovative apps which actually make your life easier.

Each one of our apps has a story behind it, develops its own unique personality and has a very distinct and compelling reason for being. For example one of our most recent apps, SMS Backup was born due to a painful accident. One of our team members lost the SMS’s on their BlackBerry and was in a deep depression for days, (Oh well, maybe not that deep but one needs to be slightly dramatic while writing) and while in this depression, he had a thought! He decided that the best revenge would be to develop an app that allowed people to back up their SMS messages and so SMS Back up was born!

SMS Backup has been tremendously successful since people all over the world are able to relate to the pain that is experienced whenone loses their SMS’s. Let’s face it, it is downright depressing to lose any thing off your phone. We believe it is better to be proactive, better to download SMS Backup for your phone today and better to be safe than sorry! For more information head on over to our SMS Backup product page:
