MuditaOS already has call blocking capabilities but blocking reactively to spammers is futile when there are thousands (millions?) of spam numbers.
Rather, intelligent blocking would be the way to go. Services such as RoboKiller offer a slew of methods of filtering calls to make sure that only the relevant ones get through.
For phones like the Pure that aim to minimize distractions, I think that spam filtering is a must. Calls and messages break my focus and more than half of all calls I receive are spam. Using RoboKiller, I now receive perhaps 1-2 messages (since the calls were silenced) every week from spammers: a significant reduction. My health (nothing like a series of spam calls to get my blood pressure and heart rate elevated) and focus have been much improved for it.
Were I to switch to the Pure or similar products, I would likely be hounded by spammers once again. I am sure I am not the only one. Therefore, I would like to suggest a built-in spam filtering service such as RoboKiller or alternatives into MuditaOS with a few controls (to keep it simple and in-line with Mudita’s ethos): pause (preset & custom intervals), resume, and enable. This ensures that the user has control (don’t want to block the users from blocking the service in case the service is too picky and starts blocking needed calls such as mine did this week) but does not overwhelm the users with options that require tweaking and investment of time & energy.
