    Default App that really blocks SMS text with KitKat?

    KitKat broke the text blocking/blacklisting apps. Is there any app that has been rewritten to work on KitKat? (Actually, I have a Nexus 7 that I have installed the Nexus 5 SMS app on. Haven't been able to get Go SMS Pro to work on my Nexus 7, but the Nexus 5 app works fine.)

    I use Extreme Call Blocker. You have to download and use the sms app that it works with. To be honest the messaging app really sucks....it's very basic. I just quit using it and I use my Samsung Galaxy S5's blocker. Extreme Call Blocker is awesome at filtering calls though.

    Yes...the app is a little pricey.
