User reviews of Reverse Lookup
Saves time and money, great app..
May 9, 2012
Didn't work well with go contacts. I think asked me if I wanted to add to an existing contact. That's good. It asked me which Google account or non sync phone list, to use. That's good. The fail is that when selecting NEW CONTACT, it didn't populate the data fields with the info it found. That's not helpful.

I have had this app(Reverse Lookup) for months and NEVER had a problem with it, and all the sudden it doesn't work!! It doesn't block the calls I ask it to block, and it then doesn't even show those calls that it allowed through in the call list! WTF happened to this app?! I tried to uninstall and reinstall, and no luck! VERY disappointed! WAS a great app until recently!

Great app. Works as advertised. Already looked up several numbers successfully.

Works like it says. HEY now I know almost all the numbers that try to call me that aren't programed in my phone. THANK YOU REVERSE LOOKUP!

Why would you do that Excellent app until the last update. You took away the ability to google search the number when the app cant find sufficient data. Often that feature is the only way to find out who or what is blowing up my phone with stupidity calls. Why would you do that? Most likely going to uninstall unless some miracle happens and the app reverts to the previous rev.

Not very good Entered my own number and it said it was an unlisted number or cell number....wrong on both counts. My number is listed and is not cell so will be unistalling this and looking for better one. I thought the problem i was having was on my end until i done that.
