A top-of-the-range caller ID that’s easy to use

CallApp caller identification and call blocker is a free app available for download at Google Play (Android), Itunes store (Iphone) and callapp.com. It is regarded as the world’s largest and most comprehensive caller ID.

As the CallApp website states, the app allows you to see information about anyone regardless of whether the caller is initiating or receiving a call, is in your contact book, is connected to you via social networks, or is a CallApp user.

When a call is received, the caller’s name, photograph and personal information appear on your phone prior to your accepting the call. The app does this by integrating your phone with its own search platform. (If a person or company does not have or interact with any social feeds, no information will be available.)

The company logo or person’s profile picture will appear on top of the screen with their phone number.
You can then go to the social feeds (Facebook, Google+, Twitter and all the others) simply by clicking on the relevant icon.

All the details you need
If you are being contacted by a company, you will see the company’s contact details, including its physical address. Click on this and you’ll be directed to Google Maps, which will show you how to get there. You’ll also be able to use Google Streetview to see where the business is situated.

By clicking on the email and messaging icon, you can send the company an email or SMS without taking the call, if you wish.

The app also offers spam filtering (you can block unwanted callers), birthday reminders, quick dial and favourite callers, all of which are very helpful, especially if you have a large contacts list.

No advertisements
One small disadvantage is that the app sometimes mismatches names and pictures, especially if the name is a commonly used one. This can be misleading if you don’t know the caller, but is not a significant problem.

CallApp stands out from other caller ID apps by being easy to use and free of advertisements.This app is certainly worth investigating, especially if you have a large contacts list.
