Truecaller Global Phone Directory: Written & Video iPhone App Review

Reviewed by Philip Chan

Ever wanted to look up a friend’s phone number but didn’t have a telephone book handy? Perhaps you forgot to add someone to your contacts list and you can’t just Facebook message them? How would you like to have a global phone directory in the palm of your hand, on the iOS? That’s where Truecaller Global Phone Directory comes into play! Developed by True Software, this interesting app aims to do away with the Whitepages and other antiquated phone directories. Does it succeed? Read on to find out!

Simply load up Truecaller and accept the terms of use to get started on this fun phone directory app. Once you’ve fully readied the app, you will be able to search the directory from over 700 million names and numbers. That’s a pretty impressive number and keeps growing as Truecaller adds more users each day. As expected, some users may feel uncertain about using an app for privacy concerns. However, I was impressed with the array of call screening and privacy features available for Truecaller users. The app allows you to place certain numbers on blocked list, tag numbers as ‘spam’, and even view a list of most-commonly spam tagged numbers. Each individual in Truecaller has a True points number and a Spam points number. The True number points to the number of connections this individual has in Truecaller (popularity status anyone?) There is also options to sync your device directory with either the global directory or the Facebook directory. Furthermore, you can view and edit your own listing, once you have verified your own phone number through Truecaller. Finally, Truecaller lives up to its description as a ‘collaborative phone directory’ through its People section, where you can see people you may know through your contacts connections. Thus, the real power of Truecaller is fully realized when you have many of your friends uploading contacts through it as well. Overall, it’s a fully functional phone book on the iOS, with some interesting social networking options included, for free!

Try as a I might, I couldn’t find much to dislike about Truecaller Global Phone Directory. The developers have fairly lofty goals of replacing traditional phonebooks, but this could certainly become close to reality with more and more peopel using this iOS service. At $0.00, it’s a steal and certainly a nice phone contact directory, especially if you can get your friends to use it too. Check out Truecaller on iTunes if you want to experience the next generation of collaborative phone directories today!

Truecaller Global Phone Directory iPhone app requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad devices. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review, as well as a video production fee.

    Hello, I read your post. You define phone directory’s uses very well. I think the main benefit of online cell phone directory is that it gives users the ability to reverse lookup cell phone numbers which allows them to identify callers without actually calling them back.
