The amazing people behind Truecaller, a popular app for identifying and blocking marketers and other spammy phone calls, have launched a new dialer app for Android that makes good use of their existing contacts database. With it, you can look up contact information of the person you’re actively calling, even if they aren’t in your address book. Spooky? Maybe. Useful? For sure. Once the data has been fetched, you can import that contact to your device painlessly.
Besides that, Truedialer looks like a highly functional and well laid-out phone app. You can swipe between QWERTY and number keyboard, quickly send a text message to folks in the call log, and easily wipe away mistyped phone numbers.
Earlier this month, Truecaller received a funding of $60 million from a group of investors, including Atomico and Sequoia Capital.
Truecaller says that it will use the Series C round of financing to fuel product development, hire new talent and expand the company’s global footprint, including in its largest market India.
In February, it received USD 18.8 million in funding, led by Sequoia Capital, bringing the total investment in the company to more than $80 million.
