Aquilonis has released their latest software offering, XBLOCKR, to the
public. The mobile phone privacy software, built for Symbian, Windows
Mobile and BlackBerry, is currently available in few mobile
applications marketplaces. It is expected to be available in more
XBLOCKR provides the ability to Duck, Drop or Divert a call on the fly,
so users can exercise their privacy. Based on a user’s contact list and
call history, a user can specify calls from specific numbers to Duck,
Drop or Divert. It’s a great solution to respond to calls, important
and unwanted, as the phone rings.
Ducking an incoming call will disconnect the call. If you have
configured your voicemail box, the caller will be directed there.
Dropping an incoming call will simulate a network error and end the
call. The call will be automatically picked up for a moment and then
disconnected. Diverting allows calls to be sent to another number and
the user can send a text message back to the caller as well.
There is a ‘Do not disturb’ feature, when on, will duck all incoming calls unless the user has listed it as a ‘special number’. The software is available for a free trial on Symbian (Nokia), Windows
Mobile and BlackBerry platforms. Users can try real time call
management privacy features before deciding to purchase the full
service. More versions for other platforms will be released soon.
Aquilonis is also excited to announce the opportunity for franchise
resellers of the XBLOCKR technology across the US, Europe and Asia.
These franchisees will be empowered to run their own sales operations
and resell the XBLOCKR core product in their specific markets and
