Hello!

I've just released a little update to my Diverter app with iPhone X and iOS 11 support.

It's a small app for just $4 that's capable of a few effects that I quite like. I sure hope you all like it too.

You can download it on the App Store here:
Diverter - App Store

Thanks!

Hi Marc,

Do you have to put your phone/Diverter settings in to English or can they be in Dutch?
Does this work with any amount of numbers (a telephone number consisting out of 8 or 10 numbers).

Hi,
Diverter currently supports phone numbers in the UK and the US. I may add more formats in a later version.

Thank you Marc, I will have a look at it as soon as it is compatible with phone numbers from the Netherlands.

Hey Marc,

How's the form? Just noticed the app has received a big update - just wondering does it now support numbers from more countries?

Sound!

Hi Pete - yes, you can set the format of the number however you’d like, meaning it works in every possible region.

Thanks!

Hi Jeffrey,
It can do quite a few things, so I’ve listed out some examples of effects possible with the app in the App Store description here:

Indeed, since adding a new features and updating the app to fully support dark mode, iOS 13, international regional formats and more, keeping it at $4 was no longer sustainable. For an app to continually benefit from updates, it has to be worthwhile for the developer.

All updates after purchasing an app remain free (which is a great deal for those who purchased it at $4!). But even still, I’d say its current price is pretty cheap; there are similar apps that have since been released on the market which are being sold for multiples of Diverter’s price.

Thanks!

Is there an option to play recordings as the call you make?

No, and there are no plans to.
There are other apps for this kind of thing - this app does one particular thing well which lets you do a myriad of effects.

I was just curious because that seems like something that could work well with this idea.

I don’t disagree. But my vision for Diverter has always been one of those “do one thing and do it well” kind of apps.
That doesn’t mean you can’t do a lot with it, but adding more features and modes also introduces complexity, (and more points of failure).

There are other apps that do as you request, but if you’re after a relatively inexpensive app that lets you call an accomplice when dialling any other number, Diverter solves that problem.

Thank you for responding and I agree with what you are saying. I did some research and the main other app that would do that is the stranger,right?

Thank You

Yes. Max Krause's Mental Killer app also has recorded responses.

I've released another update for Diverter that brings better support for longer, international phone numbers, and adds a couple more settings.

I like the idea of 2 of your friends not knowing each other and you get one to phone the other. The problem I see is that when his or hers phone rings they’ll simply assume that he / she scrolled through the contact details and had been set up all along.
