Reviews From google play store

Has really went down hill over the years. I wish it was a simpler interface. They bloat it with a lot of extra features. The most annoying is that it uses its own ringtone instead of the system set tone and it is barely audible. I'm ready to try a new dialer. In response to editor, I uninstalled Drupe and all is well again with assigned/unassigned ringtones... But thank you for replying.


It's a really good app. The main problem with it is the call record which fails all the time.an error massage (something like unable to record is shown each time ). I think that this is a main feature of the product and it does not justify using it instead of the android caller (which has a call recorder ). Please fix it it is the only one thing preventing me from using it... Answer to the developers replay: Well I am using galaxy 10 and it doesn't work. And Yes, I did try it but same result..


I like the functions of the app, but the more I use it the slower it is getting and more often than not it refuses to load to make calls, view contacts, add contacts, open the messenger apps. I also wish there was a widget to for my home screen to make reminders without having to try for 10 min to get the app to open so I can make a reminder to contact a client. I am using the free version but I will not pay for a service that works on this level. Please tell me there is a bug fix in process!


Drupe is feature rich. I have had no less than five contact apps over the years. All fail to merge properly or reappear after deleting a contact. After I found drupe I thought at last I have found a contact app that does what it says. Until I found that it's just like the rest. When I deleted a contact because it appeared twice in Drupes contact list it would be deleted immediately only to appear again after a few seconds. Why can't developers make things simple and allow users to manipulate to?


UPDATE - Since the problems with the "finding places near to me" has been fixed the app works great. The developers have worked really hard. Well done! At first i thought this was a good app. i paid for the life time plan, and then the problems started. When i try to searxh for nearby places it keeps saying "problem occured try again' this frustrates me as apps which are free and charge less access my location and then find for example "Hospitals" within my area. Very disappointed and i paid £10.


Absolutely love this app. It's easy to use, but not to the point where it only has basic controls, there's tons of advance features to use like recording calls, drive mode that uses your location and movement to send calls to vm or put on speaker, your choice on which. It's blocking feature is great as some numbers I've blocked through my phones call app haven't been able to call me but could somehow text, I don't get that with Drupe. Definitely something I would recommend to friends and family


It's *very* intrusive. It even appears when you copy text (you have to disable this in Settings - Call Screen - After Call Experience - Scroll down to "Copied Number" & "Copied Text")‽ There are also useless features like an "application shortcut" thingy that I can't even hide (and it appears Everytime I make a wrong swipe) and a tab with a "business search" that I can't disable. Overall it feels very annoying. EDIT: I don't have "business search" under personalize. It's intrusive nevertheless.


Surprisingly good. Working well and I prefer it to other similar apps having purchased and tried them all. Some minor bugs but otherwise I am very happy with what it can do. Excellent work. Outstanding, I love this app for is rare of use, good integration and performance. Brilliant!


Update2: 8/29 version is worst ever. Update1: lowered to one star because it locks up and must be force quit to open any other app. Original 2-star review: Wanted to like it soooo much. Pretty app with details that seem smart on the surface, but aren't. Would NOT connect to bluetooth headset (car worked fine). If you want to call a contact, it should default to T9 or keyboard, but can't. It does so many things that it seems like they got away from the core functionality, which is to call people.


My phone dailer that came with my phone is easier to use and more user friendly than this app. My mistake for paying for this app. It has a lot of bells and whistles. But functionality it is missing a lot. If people could make an app that did a few things great and stop trying to cram so many things into an app that take up useless space and over all are useless to use. You would have a great app. I wasted money on this app for sure, even with a discount it was a waste. Don't waste your money.


Recording issue, I have the pro version and drupe records my voice but fails to record the caller on the other end. Please help me resolve this issue, found same issue with 1 plus 6 and now in Samsung M30s. Then I wish to give you a 5 star rating again.


Very useful dialer I have been using it for years! The occasional performance problems when starting and handling even on fast phones. would love it if they made a lighter version of it and it could be snappier. It would be nice if one could disable all animations including the dialer opening animation for maximum snappiness.


This app is pretty great.easy to use and easy to add a new number and any info on same said phone number. Also gives user phone only just to literally make a call. Plus users have added features with this as u are able to both email and use texting as well. It's pretty much everything u need for a personal phone book app., so 5 stars, ya that's what i feel that it deserves. I would definitely reccommend more people down loading and using this from Google Play Store it's great !!!!....


My go-to dialler. The free version is great but don't piss around, go Pro and enjoy it in all its glory. As far as functions go it is great to have the multiple messaging/call options with a single swipe. Heaps of themes to suit any taste. Support are responsive should you have issues (helped me fix set up in <24h).


drupe is the phone taming app I've been looking for. Not exactly perfect - I had to wait a while for drupe to clean up a major issue, and my phone complains of memory consuming themes, but it's largely clean, fast, good looking, and intuitive. It's the solution for me.


I hate the stock android phone! And I also hate those generic skins or themes that you can apply to your phone. This app is a game changer! So many intuitive features that just work well. Well worth purchasing the pro version.


After recent update, the app turned worst. When calling out or in, it just appear a whole screen with green colour screen, without showing any keypad or end button etc..unable to press end call or using key pad to do other thing. Call recording also fail to record for in and out calls. Thumbs down. Please fix it fast.


Updated: Developer responded with a fix for an issue. thumbs up! Good app! I'll probably buy it soon. In response to their comment about the bug in my typing app. This password was never typed, only imported to the clipboard by a password app.


Got it because the default Samsung dialer won't let you minimize the call screen without sending the person to voicemail. This app solves that problem and has some other nice features that I'll probably never use. The settings are a mess though, they could do with some better organization.


Great app and functionality. One thing I would like to see is to be able to remove part of call logs. As it is now, I cannot remove portions of contact's call log unless I delete the entire log for that contact.


Excellent application. I have used more than 8 application for dialler and call recorder. Drupe is most effective application. It is also easy to use including various nice and interesting features. Lots of thank to developer.


Just started using it and it looks awesome.. might be a little overwhelming at first due to the number features available. Themes seen to be mostly dark and some lighter, flat colors would be good too.


It's a good app, I am still trying to set options to my taste. Unfortunately, I can not find Contact Groups I made in my default app in my Contact list... Maybe the lack of this feature could make the difference for upgrading this app.


No doubt drupe is one of the best contacts/phone diailer but the problem is it is too slow, it takes too long to load. Not good when you want to access the dialer to make a quick call


Good app. Nice interface. A lot of useful features. But the design is what's stops me from rating 5 stars. Too cluttered on the dialler screen. Needs to be simplified in some way


I have used Rocket Dial for years.. I have nothing against them but this app has won me over.. Very many features that are convinient, cool, and easy to use.. Great Work!


This app seems to not work Do not Disturb, calls are still getting through ..... Can anyone confirm if this is just me ? Devs is this an issue y'all can fix ?


Love this app, using it for more than 2 years now. Can you plz make "record calls" folder different for every caller? Sometimes it's very hard to find some specific recorded calls from the folder. Thanks


Was exceptional untill the recently. App doesn't always open, phone has been running slow. I don't know what's changed or if a update is needed but please fix. Using a pixel 2 if this helps


Nice App. Please add support for Whatsapp business. Whatsapp business messages and calls are not shown under all events.Drupe crashes if the phone number is swiped to whatsapp business. There is a lag when new contact is added.


I would rate this much higher, but i cant find or figure out how to dial calls without opening the app every time. Other than that, i think im going to really enjoy it. If someone explains how to fix this ill change my rating.


Good and I love this. Earlier I was using so many apps for sending direct WhatsApp chats without saving number. I am happy that Drupe is doing all those. Now no more unnecessary application. Thanks a lot


Please make Drupe the default SMS app and allow sms notifications. Also upgrade features to hide call recording on dial screen, or it can be made to be a bit transparent not built in as it is. Claim my name is not working.


When making this dialer as default, when any incoming call comes, screen doesn't light up only sound comes, but that is not the case with the phone's internal dialer


Hello dear Sir... Why i have uninstall yr app, beacause call record is not good only one side it will be.. If bluetooth connected mob.. Please slove this issue. If not again i have uninstall.. Even though i have purchased this app...


I don't mind ads, you have to make a buck, but yours are absolutely intrusive. I have to delete this app.


Still waiting for you to fix it. I don't know why you haven't responded yet. The redial button is supposed to dial the number you just dialed and not the default set in the phones stock software. You are not helpful anymore


Once you get the hang of the user interface it's a great program to use. Many of the preset settings are those I would have set myself. Really easy to use. Great programming job, guys.


Works great on my S8. Lots of customizable options and settings. Easy to set up and use. Really good app.


The whole horizontal bar with the "dots" becomes "insensitive" to taps. That's a bug. LG G5, latest Android available.


One of the best UX in a dialer app. Changed the way I use my phone for calls. Bought premium as well.


This app is terrific! It will entirely transform your smartphone experience. It doesn't take long to get accustomed to the app. Give it a try!


Won't open on pixel 3a with new update. The three dots disappear, and the app cannot be opened by its own icon.


It is a nice app But I use it for conference call and it can't handle conference call of three or more numbers at a same time. It just hangs and also there is no option for hold while in conference call


I am a premium customer.. Everything is good but call recording function is not working properly... Worst experience ever... M completely unsatisfied with drupe.


This is a great app. I have tried many other over the years and I find myself drawn to this particular one. Awesome!


It's so nice . Shame to say but its quick sad when i couldnt put some sweet emojies for my bestfriend and boyfriend . But later i got this app , it's really friendly and useful . Now i can put emoji on people's contact . Thank you ! 😊


Excellent app. Can optimise the battery usage better, getting more frequently nudged by the optimisers.


Dear Drupe crew! This is a nice app you have there. Please allow me to have NO apps shown at the right of the dialer and to have NO commas in the contacts list


Use this app before and loved it the only reason i stopped using it was a bug that did not get fixed for ages following a major.android ipdate so went back to contact mamager Im releved to see the bug has now been fixed and normallity restored


I love this app and its very helpful. I personally recommend all of you. Thanks so much team who made such a great app.


Excellent.. recorder works great because you dial numbers from within the app ! 🧐 !!


Took a little to get use to but once I figured it out it works great.. My only complaint is the adds....


I absolutely love this app. I can't find a reason to complain and I have been looking. This is the first app I can't see myself not having.


like drupe a lot. If you are disabled then drupe are ideal app to have as it enables you to get in touch with people quickly if you need help without any hassle. But just wish that App totally free.


Its quite colorful and easy to use but 4 out of 5 because of the space of the adds


Buggy... Contacts wont get updated itself. Some times it becomes slow.


I purchased this app to find out I can't pick up the call from lock screen.. If my phone is locked and I recieve call, i have to unlock it before picking up the phone.. Plz sort this prob or return my money


Excellent app. Perfectly designed and very helpful with lots of animation


Does everything! Great interface, easy to use, moved to this from exDialler when it disappeared from play store, so far very happy with it


Excellent phone app! Easy to use, with many productive features.


Very good dialer app but my phones ringtone have stopped working after downloading drupe. Please assist


No Use... Call Recording is not working even go to recording configuration setting


Beautiful but you're call recording option is very bad because is not original record audio please fixed the problem


I wish the quality for call recording was better Its soft and inaudible for both ends Good app so far.


The opposite person voice is very low after the voice call record.


The app is very nice..however it always lag and hang in my phone..samsung a50


Pro version is worst. In pro version it's not recording calls. My money is wasted Please refund my money


Intrusive ads in the worst location! I'll find (or develop) an alternative.


Because when some call , its silents buh it a good app, just fix the incoming call sound


Horrible hard to use. Full of spam, asks for all permissions for your phone


Horrible.... The caller ID feature of this app is totally not working


I love this you have so many themes to choose from I'm already trying them and I just started using it


Good app. Looking for a way to ask for a call screen feature similar to Trucaller


App is perfect for business person but a little problem found with WhatsApp business not open to shortcuts bar. Please help for this problem


Update to new version said that have walkie talkie function But unable to find it. Where is it. Plezz help


It it not responding big issue! Please solve this, earlier it was working nice but this is become headache...


Launcher sometimes freezes after call. Call recording does not work on Moto G5+


Love the phone dialer and love that you can replace the default call screen


I find this app easy to use. I like the different wallpaper s you can add.


I love dis app buh d problem is phone doesn't ring out wen i av an incoming call. Please fix that. Or i will have to delete the app


Its cool but wish its the only dialer i see but the sydtem one keeps coming up until i scroll the bubbles


Love that you can both block calls and record! ☺


Excellent, i enjoy using it, makes it easy and good.


Great app n built platform ! Could be more happy if its add free !


I so really love this Dialer app. Thank you drupe team!


Best dialler app among I hv used so far. Calling and messaging Options from app are tremendous .


Exellent graphics. I like your transparent background and fastness in this app


There things to improve but this is a great app and it rally makes me more prodactive


Excellent app. I have been looking for something like this for a while.


After a month or so, very good. Easy to use.


Worked great until recently. I have two numbers under one contact. When I select the icon to call the second number (a cell phone), it dials the first number anyway (a home phone). It doesn't matter which one I select. It always dials the home number. I had to make two separate contacts to be able to dial their mobile number. Otherwise I have to manually type it in. Very inconvenient. Would be 5 stars if not for that! I guess I'll be looking for another dialer after work tonight.


Like your features, icons. Everything about this app is extra ordinary.


Yours is a great app ... can you pls consider the below 2 things ? 1) The new bubble is NOT convenient to me. Can u pls give us an option to keep the older version of it ? 2) on onePlus 5 ... the call recorder is of bad quality ... the opp person's voice is too low in the recording ... (fyi, the native dialer's recorder works perfectly fine) thanks, I would give 5 stars after hearing from you !


Pro Version is disappointing. There are problems to handle additional phone numbers for one person. If you try to dial the second number, first number is used. Furthermore there is no block list, so it's impossible to see all blocked numbers at one glance. Last not least, merging one person's numbers doesn't work at all.


Thank you for explaining about the bug with the themes. I've adjusted my rating, with the expectation that this issue will be resolved. Also, whenever I attempt to use the business search, I get, "Oops, something went wrong, try again." Are you aware of this issue, as well? People expect to be able to use the options that are advertised with a PAID app.


app is good has some glitches i bought paid version double tap to call the number doesn't work properly we need to hit three times to dial the number. notification for misscall shows again n again even if checked it... it means a bundle of misscall will be popup every time u miss a call or ur number is in waiting... work on it I'll change the rate to 5


stressful to use, the dialer has so many bugs. when i dial a number i can't see anything just a green blank screen and i don't know how to end calls or select options . I have upgraded to pro but when i add another google account 2 my phone I loss my license and I'm asked to upgrade it only happens in this app cos my other apps are fine. it takes screen shots accidentally and i dnt know y it does dat frequently. It i made it my default dial but it still interfares with my stock dialer. many bugs


im pretty much happy with the features that this app have except the problem of the pace of battery discharge. hence the two stars, otherwise this app is worth of 4to5 stars. if I don't have this app running in my mobile phone, normally i could observe a full day of charged mobile. else if I'm running with this app, I could feel my mobile phone with ran out battery within just 8hours. I could suggest the team to fix this ASAP.


I've used this app for at least a couple of years with NO Problems At All! Love it! It blocks, IDs & marks spam, etc. HOWEVER, anytime I make/receive a call and copy something on my phone, up pops a screen telling me what I just did. Duh! Ya think? Developers: That pop up is available elsewhere - so Please, IF that screen HAS to be there, PLEASE! Shorten The Time That It Stays On The Screen! Fix it to "Show," "PAUSE" ONLY and then "Disappear"! It stays on my screen for M-U-C-H TOO LONG!!!!
