Truecaller: Caller ID, block robocalls & spam SMS review
Truecaller is a time and nerve saver for people whose daily routines include hours on the phone. The more calls you make every day, the larger the probability that you will receive unwanted calls from scams and spammers. Truecaller can save you from these obstacles and let you always see who’s really calling.
The Truecaller app for iOS and Android has almost the same interface design. The only difference is the calling screen, which is always the same on iOS and depends on your Android device manufacturer style. On both devices, you can enable day and night modes to match the app to the theme of your device and save your eyes in low light conditions.
Although all the options are easily visible on the home screen, it’s a bit hard to reach some buttons if you are using plus-size smartphones. To solve this problem, you can use the default one-hand control mode.
Key Functions 10/10
Truecaller has over 500 million downloads, not without reason. The fact is that it’s the most versatile calling app for iOS and Android. It provides smart control features that let you interact with your large database of numbers without problems.
The app is connected to a frequently updated database of spamming and malicious numbers from all over the world. It always highlights such calls, letting you refuse to answer and save time. All the unwanted calls are registered by a separate inbox to declutter the main inbox. In addition, there’s an inbox for authorized callers, such as marketing organizations. In the end, your main inbox shows only the calls from people and organizations added to your contacts list.
Of course, it’s impossible to catch all the unwanted calls and know about each number owner. However, this app learns all the time and manages to highlight over 90% of spam and malicious calls. The same firewall works with your SMS inbox. The list of spammers and scums is community-driven and updates in real time. You can contribute and mark a number as spam too.
You can backup your entire call history in your personal free Google Drive cloud and sync your database over several iOS and Android devices. It really does its job and saves your time, letting you do your job even better.
Cross-Platform Use 10/10
This app is available for all iOS and Android smartphones and lets you synchronize your contact database over several devices for free. This feature lets you turn a single Truecaller account into a multi-device business solution.
Truecaller is a super-smart filter for incoming calls. It’s a must-have for any active caller who doesn’t want to waste time on useless talks with telemarketing teams, spammers, scammers, and other annoying parties. Due to online features, such as Flash voice messages, you can also use this app as a free instant messenger for corporate needs.
