New Windows Phone App from Truecaller Brings Enhanced Search and Premium Features
Truecaller, the crowdsourced caller ID and scam prevention app with over 70 million users, is bringing several of its biggest new features to Windows Phone 8.
Their new feature, Name Search, lets users search for other users' contact info based on name (even just first name).
Truecaller uses your contact list (and the contact list of your contacts on Truecaller) to determine your social circle and find the most likely person you're searching for. You can then request their full contact info. For those looking to reconnect with an acquaintance, relative, or professional contact, it could be an ideal solution. In addition, their premium feature lets you search for and request contact people from those outside of your social circle.
These features come in addition to Truecaller's crowdsourced scam call database, which lets users ID and block spam numbers, so they can avoid the huge issue of spam calls like the IRS scam that has cost taxpayers millions this year.
