Latest news about Contact Managers
2016. Truecaller will be preinstalled on Huawei phones
Stockholm-based Truecaller, which offers social features inside the caller app and uses a crowdsourced directory to help identify spam calls, has landed a partnership with Huawei which will see its caller ID and smart phone book app pre-loaded on Huawei smartphones. Truecaller migrated its standalone social calling app — Truedialler — into its main app in March, and the company revealed today that its users are now making more than 500 million calls per month. The average duration of each call is around 100 seconds, the company added. That’s pretty impressive when you consider that WhatsApp reached 100 million calls within its app per day earlier this year — yet it counts more than a billion active users.

2015. Truecaller launched new Android Messaging app
Truecaller launched a new service - Truemessenger - aimed at making SMS smarter and less spammy. It is an SMS replacement app for Android that taps into the company’s network of users to verify the identify of those who send text messages. If someone sends you a spam message, Truemessenger allows you to help others avoid the pain by labeling that person as a nuisance in their contact list. It uses exactly the same principles behind Truecaller: users identify spam calls/SMS as a nuisance, that information is saved in its directory and then the same caller/SMS sender is identified as a spammer when they call/message another user. Users can also set up their own spam rules, just as you do for email. Messages market as spam are then shifted to a separate folder, rather than being contained in the general SMS inbox, which helps avoid clutter.
2015. Google Contacts gets a new look, integrates with Google+
Google is previewing a new version of Google Contacts that aims to combinе users' Gmail and Google+ connections in one place. New Google Contacts will automatically pull in information from your contacts' Google+ profiles, such as job titles, addresses and phone numbers. It'll also add contextual information, such as any meetings you've recently had or emails you've exchanged with this person. The new Google Contacts comes with a fresh look and feel. It also comes with a redesigned tool for fixing duplicate contact information that allows suers to quickly merge multiple entries. Gmail's contacts already has a tool for doing this, but the new one promises to be much more intuitive and user friendly. Google says it will be rolling out the contacts to Gmail users "over the next few weeks." As with the Inbox app, this feature won't be immediately available to professional Google Apps users.
2015. Contact Manager app FullContact gets funding, rolls out a new app for iOS
FullContact, that offers a range of solutions for contact management for both consumers and developers alike, has raised an additional $7 million in Series B funding and launched a new universal contacts app for iOS. The new iPhone and iPad apps have been developed using the technology from Cobook, a startup FullContact acquired a year ago. Last month the company also debuted the FullContact for Gmail plugin. This browser add-on competes with LinkedIn’s Rapportive, offering a sidebar in Gmail showing a contacts’ name, information and even their social media posts. Unfortunately, that service for now fails to pull in a lot of data due to the fact that it’s limited by what it call pull in from LinkedIn thanks to LinkedIn’s API restrictions. Though Rapportive users haven’t always been happy about the changes made since the service was acquired by LinkedIn, its access to LinkedIn’s data still makes it one to beat, it seems. That may change in time, however, as FullContact improves upon its own contacts database.
2014. Truecaller gets a sister-app for dialing
The company behind Truecaller (the app that provides handy information about incoming calls) released its counterpart for outgoing calls - Truedialer. The app, initially available for Android only, is a dialer that taps into the enormous database of phone numbers, while user types a number and searches for autocomplete options. The database is collected from Truecaller original service — via deals with phonebook providers and third parties like Yelp and Twitter, but also via users uploading their contacts books — to beef up the contact information shown in call logs. While Truecaller tells you if an incoming call is from a known spammer, Truedialer will warn you if you’re dialing a dodgy number.
2014. Contact identification app Truecaller scores $60 Million
Truecaller, a mobile phone directory and called ID app that lets people search for other mobile users by name or number, has raised $60 Million In Series C funding. Truecaller provides a very useful feature that offers a way to cross the mobile silos that have grown up around mobile services — around platforms, carriers and apps. The service has been a hit in countries that have a high number of mobile users still using phones largely for calls (or apps that use phone numbers to connect people, like WhatsApp), but little in the way of directory services to help users find each other. Truecaller’s platform aggregates existing directory services via deals with white pages companies, and platforms like Yelp to bring in businesses. It complements that with crowdsourced information from the app’s users. It also offers filters to screen spam callers and proudly tells you how many annoying calls it’s saved you from getting.
