App Reviews

  • Works perfectly

    By LAX20531
    The day I installed this app was the end of my Robocall hell. For over a year I was getting more junk calls than legitimate, with the majority being the local-type that purport to be within the same area code/prefix. Elated, I decided to trial the premium service because many of my legitimate calls aren’t necessarily in my contact list and Caller ID is the primary selling point of premium. Unfortunately, that didn’t work out as well...not a single call was flagged with Caller ID at the time it rang but the info was available after-the-fact assuming I pasted it in and looked it up. (It then attached the info to the call log). But that isn’t the way premium is supposed to function, so I turned off renewal and declined to purchase the annual subscription. If he product is confirmed to be functioning I would have no problem purchasing as $15/yr is more than fair IMO and I believe developers should be compensated for their work. All this being said, I don’t understand why so many are having problems with the app. Perhaps they didn’t activate blocking in Settings or habitually force-close the app. One annoyance is the app often sends a msg stating it needs to be manually updated because it wasn’t able to do so itself (and the message assumes it’s been force-closed.)
  • Hate subscriptions on apps

    By Amber_sct
    I loved this product when it came out. I get tons of spam calls and being able to block them once and not worry about that one again was really helpful. I still have to block more daily almost but it does make me think I’m making a dent in the sea of unwanted calls. I used the search feature and being able to read others comments on a number to decide whether to block or not. Now that is gone. I even believe the service provided is worth charging for the app but not charging every month for it. This information is free information but multiple companies are trying to profit off making this information easy to get but all thy have all done is make it impossible to google search and get the info for Free because all the companies pop up first that want you to pay for that free information. I am disabled and love on fixed income that doesn’t even cover my bills let alone a subscription monthly to be able to search phone numbers before blocking them. AT&T has total protect also provided by Hiya and is free and it doesn’t allow searches either so guess I will stick with them even though I did like your product better prior to “premium” being the features I really liked. I gave you 3 stars because it is still a good app it just isn’t as good as it was.
  • Hiya on my local news and a time saver besides

    By Cbgc
    I found the app after a local news radio guy raved about how great it is. And he did it during a conversation with someone on the air spontaneously. That is how I know it was not a commercial. He commented after words that he shouldn’t have said it because he can get in trouble for that. He apologized and said that he was not doing a commercial and was not a paid spokesman for the company just a customer. It really seems to work great. I run a small business here in a major American city and because of that my number is published in many locations. That means if I wanna keep getting customers I can’t change my number but I get constant telemarketers and scammers every day. They really try to take advantage of businesses because of the fact that they know that we cannot change or disconnect our numbers without going out of business. Sometimes I found that I was wasting 10 to 20 minutes per day on answering calls that were a total waste of time. That means over the course of the year I will save dozens of hours of my time and be able to really make more money talking to my customers, hiya is well worth it.
  • Vague interface makes this app hard to use

    By nichollspete
    Short version: The UI on this app is not clear. It seems overly complicated to me and has no familiar design elements to make it easy to use. I very nearly deleted it because I could not figure out how to enable blocking. Long version: I could not figure out how to get this app to work. The UI is very vague. It looked to me like in order to block any spam calls, I had to enter in each spam number individually. As I dug through the app I saw no familiar design elements like iOS-style switches or check boxes so I couldn’t tell how to enable the service, aside from entering in the phone numbers individually. I was very frustrated and even wrote a negative review that never posted. So here I am again. What is different is that after reading through every section of the app (and there are more sections than seem necessary), I found that elements that look like tabs are actually check boxes. They don’t look like check boxes but they do the same thing. The problem is there is no visual cue that says “here’s what you are looking for!” You have to read everything. In today’s messed up world, I don’t have time to read everything and most apps don’t require you to. It seems odd to render your app useless to anyone who doesn’t take a moment to read. I almost deleted this app because it required so much of me. We’ll see how it does now that I know how to work it.
  • Used to be better (I think)

    By Jadedgazelle
    Maybe it’s just a coincidence, but since upgrading to the premium service, many apparent spam calls started getting through regularly. They come from a lot of different numbers that don’t show up in the Hiya database of spam type callers. They don’t ever have a name to identify them. They often come from my local or nearby area codes. And yes, I do have the option checked to block calls from my regional area that are suspected spam. I tend not to answer calls unless I know who they are from and specifically want to talk to them. So in fairness, I can’t be sure these are spam calls, but there is a great chance that they are because they never leave a voicemail. It wouldn’t seem like the premium service would cause what I am experiencing to occur, but who knows? Either way, the paid version hasn’t added much of any value that I didn’t already get from the free version. But it is my fault that I failed to get the free trial cancelled in time. If I had reviewed this app several months ago, I would have rated it 5 stars. Since it now fails to filter the vast majority of my unwanted calls, 3 is the best I’ll give it. Hope your experience with it is better than mine.
  • Good but...

    By Glapalom
    I’m impressed with the basic protection this app provides. Especially for the free version! I would rate it even higher, but it seems even though I leave the app running all the time, I am constantly having to go back to the app, and reset the settings I previously selected. About once every couple weeks, I begin receiving a noticable number of spam calls coming through. When that happens, it’s my queue to go into IOS settings, and once again I have to set Hiya as my call protection. I also have to go into Hiya settings and reset things like the type of protection I want. I won’t upgrade to the premium protection until these little annoyances are fixed. Once fixed this could be a great app. Right now, I just see it as a good app. By the way, the feature just announced, that the dial pad protects you against calling a spam number? What is that? Why would the app developers think this is a good feature? How many spam numbers do you mistakenly call each day? Seems their time could have been better spent fixing things like persistent settings instead.
  • This app made answering my phone no problem!

    By DeeEzBee
    I kept my family's phone number, after my mom's death. My family had had this number for 62 years! I wanted mom's friends to be able to find me, and I could inform them of her passing. When I found this app, from channel 5 tech report. I was not sure I should down load it. You know all the various viruses and other bad things that get in your device. I did get it, and was just about jumping with joy! I grabbed my son, and showed him the app, telling him it would really be good to have on his phone... He got it, and with a couple shows of things I was using, he got his Hiya app the way he wanted. It looks wierd to review from iPad, but my iPhone was charging. This app has prevented all the home improvement calls that that had been coming. I had told them I was a renter now. But they kept calling. Now, Hiya, can note under the caller's name (unless it's unlisted) whether the call is suspect as spam, or not. I can silence the call, then check with Hiya to see if the number was scam, or how high of scam suspected. I love this app!!
  • Not good anymore

    By nothing else available
    Update: I uninstalled as I planned 3 days ago. I also turned on DND. Then when I realized *all* the spam calls had already stopped I turned off DND since it was silencing my texts too. This app was definitely the *cause* of the spam. It should be removed from the App Store. Original review: This *was* the best app ever. I even installed it on all my elderly family member’s phones. It used to cut down on the spam calls really well. I even praised it when it still let through most of the neighbor spoof calls because it was still blocking most of the rest of the calls. I would say about the time Premium became a thing (no I would never pay to know the name of my robocallers) it just went to junk. So many of the calls are getting through now. I guess I’m deleting it since I can only assume they really do sell your number like the conspiracy theorists have been saying all along. If you don’t use your phone for phone calls to and from lots of random numbers, consider making a contact list in your phone with all your real contacts you want to get calls from and turn on “do not disturb” for anyone not on the list. Spammers never call back within the hour, so it should block all of them without fail. Now I’m off to delete hiya from Grandma’s phone.
  • Finally, I’m limited on the Robo and Fraud Calls!

    By Danielle F Watson
    It’s been a blessing to not have to get so many Robo calls during the day. I used to get a lot more, but since I’ve started using Hiya I am receiving less and less, and having the calls screened for Scam, Fraud, and Telemarketing is a plus. Plus, even finding out who is calling me if I don’t answer is great when I want to look up the number. Update June 2018: The app isn’t working as well lately, and I have been receiving IRS extortion calls from east coast numbers this entire week and the app is not picking up many of them. After I copy and paste the number, only a few come up extortion. I understand that not all numbers can be found, so we’ll see how this app handles more of them. Update July 2018: The app is working better than last month. There have been a lot of local numbers coming up, but it’s picking them up more often now. Those pesky east coast numbers are still coming up, and the IRS scams still get through as the Robo callers are getting more tricky and finding other ways around them being blacklisted, but, all in all, so far so good.
  • A+ app to notify & block extortion, threatening, spam, fraud, telemarketer, & spoofing phone calls

    By judielee
    I was at my wits end with frustration over the extreme frequency of extortion, threatening, spam, fraud, telemarketer, & spoofing phone calls. The phone company would/could not help. Hiya has been a stress-reliever. It notifies me when a phone call is one of the above. I just don’t pick it up. Afterwards, I block the caller and then mark the type of phone call on the Hiya app. This is optional, but it helps others in the same way their notifications have helped me. There is also a choice to block these callers rather than just warn me. For a trial period I wanted to see how well & how often I was warned, and how many problem calls I was actually receiving. A lot! I have now just switched to blocking all of these calls. I want to thank the makers of Hiya, and also a great big thank you to others who have sent feedback regarding the types of each specific phone call they had received. It’s a group effort, and a frustration-reliever. Thank you.
