What TrueCaller is

TrueCaller offers a worldwide name and number lookup functionality for your Android for free! It enables you to match phone numbers to names, addresses, social networks, and even pictures!

This looks pretty cool, a worldwide caller id/social networking/phonebook for your Android device.  You can find people worldwide or use the call blocker to get rid of those annoying solicitor calls. It ties directly in with Facebook and LinkedIn to display the most relevant information about the person calling you. Automatic address book updates if your friend changes their information and a good looking interface make this a viable solution for Android users. With over 3million users worldwide the service looks to expand further with the addition of the Android platform.

If you use it, let us know how it works in the comment section below.

      Of course it needs access to most things. Otherwise it wouldn’ t be able to check who’s calling and block unwanted sales calls…

    I’ve used it for some time now and it really does what they clame. Could not live without the call spam filter! I use my phone in many roles since I’m a free consultant and there are just too many sales companies that pick up my phone number.
    This is the first app I install on a new device.
