Truecaller Launches New App to Reinvent the Smartphone Dial Pad
The new app replaces an Android phone's standard dial pad with one powered by Truecaller's database of over a billion phone numbers. If users are dialing a number for an individual or business outside of their phonebook, they'll be able to see the name, and even a profile photo of whom they're about to dial before they place the call.
Features of Truedialer include:
- Automatically search for information about a number you are dialing. As you type in a number, Truedialer seamlessly searches your own contact list and Truecaller's database. You can instantly learn the name of an individual or business belonging to a number you dial, even if they're not in your contact list.
- Automatically fill in missing contact information in your call log with information from Truecaller's database. Truedialer takes out the guesswork of trying to remember which name is behind which unassigned number in the call log.
- Avoid spam and scams. If the number you're about to dial has been reported by Truecaller's community as an unwanted number, you'll be warned before placing the call.
"Until now, phone dial pads have not truly improved since the feature phone days. With the same infrastructure that powers Truecaller, our ambition with Truedialer is to replace the phone's phonebook app and be invaluable to users, just as Truecaller has changed the way people receive calls and find contact information," said Nami Zarringhalam, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Truecaller.
Truedialer is available for free on Android, and a version of the app is also available on Windows Phone.
