Today we tell you about how you can protect yourself against unsolicited phone calls. We have also prepared a new BCR contact synchronization tutorial and found an excellent puzzle game for math enthusiasts.
This clever piece of software, which will help you keep your cool in the face of a stream of unsolicited calls, was developed in Sweden and called TrueCaller. When an unwanted call is received, the app will mark it with an appropriate tag (spam, survey, or ad), so you won’t be distracted by unwanted calls during important meetings or at the movies — just reject them and add them to your blacklist. To find out more about blocking unwanted numbers, see this issue of our newsletter.
This software can also recognize a number of various commercial organizations — it can, for example, alert you that an online store is calling you about one of your purchases.

App of the Week: Pluszle, a Brain Logic Game
If you think your brain could do with some additional training, Pluszle is the app for you: logic puzzles, bonus quests, and online duels against other users await you in this mathematics-themed puzzle game.
The game seems simple at first — it’s not that hard to choose the correct numbers to correspond with the total row and column sums placed along the perimeter. However, if you crank up the difficulty level, it won’t be such a cakewalk anymore. 🙂
That’s all, folks!
