If I had to guess I would say you are subscribed to this and the CW show threads. Do you get a notification when a post is submitted?

Yes. I'm subscribed to this and the three cw shows and I get notified for posts on those but nothing else.

Lately I've been buying watch faces for my Android wear watch. I used to rent movies from Google play a lot

Honestly, those are probably some of the better ideas I've heard. Much better than "buy this in-app purchase" or "get this app you'll never use."

Well if you don't have weather timeline (https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... on.weather), I highly recommend it. Best weather app by far IMO.

Don't have a "nice" weather app, I just swipe left and use Google Now. Just bought. Thanks.

I do the same thing. I use it when I'm getting ready in the morning, mainly Google Now. This app is looking pretty great, though.

I have a handful of numbers that I block because they call me all the time about junk. Android still gives me a notification when I get the call and it's blocked. Is there an app that blocks the call and doesn't alert me of it? Maybe even offers a block log if I ever carried to look up the blocked numbers?

On stock Android, you can set contacts to "send all calls to voicemail." So I created a contact called "do not answer and set all calls for it to voicemail. I don't get notified when they call, but the calls still show in my call log list.

If that doesn't work for you, try this app:

My problem is it's more than just one number I'm blocking. How many numbers can I add to a contact? I'll try the app out too

I don't think there's a limit to the amount of numbers a contact has. I know I have at least 5 on mine...

Been using this app for over a week now. I really like it. When you get a call it must search google for it and a Caller ID shows who is calling, even if you don't have their number. I got a call yesterday from my local insurance and it showed his name and picture.

The app is also blocking a lot of spammer calls and tells you what they are. I still get a notification for them, but I can live with it since it is doing a better job of blocking calls than I was. I assume I can change settings or turn off notifications for the entire app, but I like how it is working now.
