Truecaller has today announced the launch of its new app for iOS. The latest update brings an entirely new design to the free Truecaller app and adds the new feature “Truecaller Widget Search” that focuses on convenience and simplifies the process of looking up a missed call.
Truecaller is home to more than 100 million users globally, who use the service to identify unknown numbers, block unwanted calls, and find the right contact information for people and businesses you want to connect with. The app looks to solve a huge pain point for millions of consumers who use their phonebook on a daily basis, but often need to go outside of their existing phone book manager to find useful information.
Truecaller Empowers Millions with a More Powerful and Personal Mobile Phone Experience
Using a proprietary search technology and social graph, the latest Truecaller experience combines hundreds of different sources such as Yelp!, and other social networks to help you access current information and contact profiles across all your preferred platforms and devices. With a more simplified way to search for contacts, look up missed calls, and one swipe ability to place calls and send texts, staying in touch with those you want to connect with is easier than ever before.
“We want to streamline and personalize the experience for our users as much as possible and a smarter design was essential to improving the experience,” said Alan Mamedi, co-founder and CEO of Truecaller. “This is the next big step we’re taking to increase the utility of our app, while helping the iOS community save time with tools they need to identify unknown numbers. We think the new Truecaller will improve the way millions of people use the service every day, and based on some of the great feedback we’ve had so far, we’re confident that we’re moving in the right direction toward our next 100 million users.”
The new Truecaller for iOS includes:
Truecaller Widget Search: Along with the new design Truecaller has implemented a new widget feature for iOS 8 where users can quickly identify a missed call. You can now just copy a phone number from your call history and drag down Apple’s drop down menu to quickly see whom that number belongs to.
Complete Contact Profiles: Truecaller keeps your phonebook up to date with relevant information by adding social media profiles and photos so you have all the contact information you need in one central place. Users can choose how they are being displayed in their friend’s Truecaller phonebook by updating their profiles.
Smarter Search and Discovery: Now you can search within your contacts as well as names and businesses beyond your existing phone book with an extensive list of more than 1.6 billion numbers. There’s no need to switch between searching for people inside and outside of your phonebook or constantly updating the information, as Truecaller will always give you the most relevant and personal results.
Easily Place Calls and Send Texts: A new user interface makes staying connected easier than ever before. Once a user profile is pulled, you just need to swipe left to place a call or text. This one-step process makes it so easy, you can stay in touch faster and more conveniently.
