Truecaller launches new phone dialer app

Truecaller has launched a new phone dialer app called Truedialer. The app is available for free on Android and Windows Phone. Truedialer aims to replace the standard dialing interfaces on smartphones and give instant access to relevant information about contacts that users are trying to dial.
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. The integration of the Truecaller technology works in conjunction with Truedialer.
With the new Truedialer app, users can search for information about a number they are dialing. As a number, dialed, Truedialer searches the contact list and Truecaller’s database to provide the name of an individual or business belonging to a number even if it is not saved in the contact list.
Also, it fills in missing contact information in the call log with information from Truecaller’s database. To prevent spam and scams, if the dialed number has been reported by Truecaller’s community as an unwanted number, the user will 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.
