TrueCaller-for-Windows-PhoneThe reception of an unknown number calling for many people is almost similar, hesitation is the usual reaction to it. What makes it worse is if the person on the other end is a telemarketer calling to inform or educate you on products or services the company is offering. You sure do not want to take time off receiving a call to know how good baby diapers or herbal lotions are.

In this technology day, Truecaller has been termed the saving grace for this kind of the situations unless the caller is not registered on the app. The app has over the time evolved to help users obtain hidden details of the caller which includes locating an individual through the app.

Truecaller is back again with a completely redesigned app for Windows Phone 8, which promises to transform the phonebook with a new set of useful features to improve the communications experience.

The upgraded app available to download for free in the Windows Phone store will help filter unnecessary noises on your device at the same time providing tools to manage all communication needs. Truecaller for Windows Phone 8 goes well beyond what your native phonebook offers giving the user a choice to receive spam detection notifications when they please may it be real time or through contact searches.

Today, Truecaller is already home to more than 100 million people globally who are performing more than 2 billion searches per month in the app. With a database of more than 1.6 billion numbers, you can easily access complete contact profiles, even those outside of your phonebook, and you’ll never have to leave the app to find the right information for people and businesses that you want to connect with.

The company is therefore looking to save the population from the annoying calls on their mobile phones in partnership with Microsoft in a project the two have merged to roll out features to improve the callers experience.
