Be honest: your iPhone has a knack for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It likes to remind you of this by ringing from the most inconvenient places: the jacket you left in the closet, from the bottom of your purse, or in your pocket while you’re driving.
To add insult to injury, after scrambling to fish your phone out of whichever creative hiding place its nestled itself in, you’ve likely missed the call and worse, if not from a contact, likely have no idea if the call was worth picking up in the first place.
If only there was a way to access call information, answer calls and place them hands-free from a device that was always with you, like Apple’s new Watch. Well, good news, now there is!
Here are three ways it could change your life:
Serious Caller ID—With Images!
One thing we’ve always wanted for our iPhones, well before the launch of the Apple Watch, was a dedicated caller ID system. With our new app you’ll have one in the most convenient place: your wrist. Now within a couple of rings, you’ll know from a photo on your wrist if you’re being called by a telemarketer (decline!), or your friend’s new phone number (answer it!). Not only is it useful, it looks like something from a James Bond film.
Hands-Free Voice Activation
You already know there are times when it’s inconvenient and even dangerous to dial a phone number the old-fashioned way. Now at the gym, on your bike or in the car you have the option to dial numbers through the sound of your voice. Just speak a name or number into your watch to make a call in seconds.
A New Defense Against Spam/Scams
You don’t have to wonder for weeks or months about that mysterious number calling you. The BeenVerified watch app will tell you in just seconds whether the incoming call is a telemarketer by providing spam scores instantly. And with the government warning about the ongoing use of scam phone calls, particularly from con artists impersonating government agencies, you will now have the confidence to know instantly if callers are who they say they are.
Our mission began in 2007 to make public data easy to access, affordable and usable in your everyday life. Our new free Apple Watch app is the latest example of a useful product we hope will make your life better.
We’re proud that our previous apps have been downloaded over 7,000,000 times and hope to continue to provide America with reliable, accurate and affordable public data products.
