nVariance announces a significant update to Call Bliss, the app that has made the iPhone’s “Do Not Disturb” feature even more powerful and customizable. Now, not only does Call Bliss enable iPhone users to manage who can reach them by creating “Groups” and “Places,” it can also “Blacklist” annoying contacts from their address book.

Call Bliss makes it simple to create groups of allowed callers and activate them with a tap to allow their calls-- or deactivate them when their calls aren’t wanted. Even better, it controls allowed callers based on location, such as home, work, while on the road, or even at the golf course.

“With the newest update, Call Bliss is more powerful while being even easier to use,” said Randy Hill, president of nVariance. “Call Bliss makes Do Not Disturb more useful and versatile, and days more productive and enjoyable. Call Bliss users gain peace of mind knowing they won’t miss important calls, while no longer being distracted by unwanted callers.”

New features include:

  • Map view - Allow users to view and create Places in Map view, making it easier to define Allowed Caller Lists by location.
  • “Blacklist Mode” – Do Not Disturb normally uses a “Whitelist” style of call suppression, suppressing all calls except from specifically allowed callers. In response to overwhelming user requests, Call Bliss has added a “Blacklist” style to Do Not Disturb with “Blacklist mode”. In “Blacklist mode”, calls from known contacts are always allowed unless the caller is added to the Call Bliss’ “Blacklist” (unknown callers are always suppressed).
  • Notifications – Users now can elect to be notified when entering saved Places, to confirm the allowed callers list has been updated.

Call Bliss’s interface has been streamlined to make it easier and faster to use with a new integrated context sensitive Help, a “Popup Modes” menu, and the new Contact Picker Search bar makes adding specific contacts out of thousands quick and easy.

Call Bliss is available in the App Store for US $4.99. Note: Do Not Disturb suppresses call, text and email notifications only when the iPhones screen is locked, and suppressed callers can still leave voicemail.
