Truecaller, A must have App for all smart phones

Truecaller, A must have App for all smart phones

Someone pestering you with calls, disturbing your sleep with calls at 2.00 am in the morning.  This is a must have App for your smart phone.  Available across almost all platforms,  this App is FREE.

Disturbing and pestering calls aside, this App is a must have.  It lets you know the exact person from whom the call has come.  Though it failed to inform me about phones which had been ported, this App is truly awesome.  Even its website is just as awesome, with letting you sign in Yahoo, Gmail and other logins.  It gave me results in 5 secs flat alongwith the name of the person and the oneliner address using Google Maps.  Impressive stuff really!  You can check out the site here.

Available on all smart phone OS,  the Truecaller UI is very simple and straightforward to use. After launching it the first time, you’ll be prompted to confirm the region you’re in. After that, the App runs in the background and kicks in every time you get a call. 

You can access advanced features by opening the App.  The first screen lets you search for a number in your country. Simply type the number and within seconds, you’ll be able to get the name of the account holder and what network he or she is using (MTNL, AIRTEL, AIRCEL etc). Swiping to the right gives you your history of received calls that Truecaller has registered. The ‘Update’ tab on the left lets you update all the numbers in your phonebook with missing information like addresses, etc. It scans the numbers and then updates it with the information it has in its database. 

You can sign in via Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter and get the latest updates from friends. The ‘Call Filter’ tab lets you add numbers you wish to block. You can add numbers to the ‘My Blacklist’ page and these numbers automatically get updated in the central database.  Add a number from the telemarketer to the Truecaller database, and next time the person calls up from the same number, it will warn you that it is spam call.  Further you can blacklist the number not only for you but your friends also.

The App lets you customise how TrueCaller functions. You can enable CallerID on calls as well as SMSs as well as choose the location of where the information will be displayed.  

Truecaller also includes a very handy little widget that gives you the contact details on the last three or six calls, depending on the type of widget you choose.
