Truecaller releases a smart dialer app ‘Truedialer’

Truecaller is one of the most popular apps today. The developers behind it have a vision of changing the way we see our phonebooks and it looks like they are constantly working to improve our experience. The company has just launched a new app called the Truedialer which is a dialer app for smartphones.

Truedialer

It takes over from your regular dialer and gives you information about the contact you are calling such as profile photo, name (if it’s a number not on your list) and so on. It gives you access to relevant information about people you are about to call, and lets you save the information into your phonebook for later use too.

So the app works in a manner similar to the Trucaller. Every time you dial a number, it looks up in its database to give you access to the information about the number you are calling. Another nifty feature is that it fills up the missing contact information in your call log too. And if a number has been reported by the Truecaller community regarding being a spam or a scam number, you’ll be warned before you dial too.

The Truedialer seems to be pretty much as much functional as the Truecaller sibling. It is available for free for Android and Windows Phone 8.1.

This Truecaller is not good. Any one can get name & number. It is nothing but live phone directory. When people not in a favour of mobile phone directory then why they use Truecaller. This truecaller is far superior compare to directory published printed or online. It breach privacy of people’s mobile number. Say if some one store my number in his/her contact but all the contact uploaded to truecaller, so in this case I havent given permission to truecaller to list my number into there database. And there is no mechanism to remove my number if I found on… Read more »

@ARIF – Your comments indicate you are living in the 1970’s! Wake up, this is the 21st Century… everyone has a right to information. If you DONT want your number to be listed in TrueCaller (even if its in someone’s phonebook) you can de-register it from their website. What the Operators have failed to do … TrueCaller has successfully implemented.

These two apps ‘Truecaller’ & ‘Truedialer’ harvest on your phone books. When installed on any phone it uploads all contacts to Truecaller servers. Who knows whom they sell this data to. Worst part is even if one single person who has your number stored installs this app then your name & number will get uploaded to their servers. Also most of us store names such as ‘Ramesh Wipro’ which can further leak details about the victim to the hands of telemarketers.

So friends beware of such kinds of apps. You are basically trading your privacy for a trivial benefit.

So I suppose if you get 50 calls from telemarketers daily then you’ll have no problem with that, right? ‘Right to Information’ for them as well. Also going by your definition of Right to Information, privacy shouldn’t exist at all. What Edward Snowden did was a total waste of time. Tomorrow if Flipkart gets hacked & your card details are stolen then also you’ll say that the hackers have the ‘Right to Information’, right? Also I am well aware of the option to hide your number from appearing on Truecaller. Ever noticed it says ‘unlist’ not ‘remove’ or ‘delete’? It’s… Read more »
