Banish robocalls and spammers for free with CallApp (Sponsored)

Despite the government's best attempts to rein in illegal robocalls and other telephone-related scams, such security threats have been an ongoing issue for anyone within reach of a phone. Luckily, developers like our friends behind CallApp have made it simple to identify and block these calls from reaching your device, all while offering a phone app experience you won't find in a stock application.

After Several-Month Absence, CallApp Makes Its Way Back To The Play Store With New Features In Tow

After Several-Month Absence, CallApp Makes Its Way Back To The Play Store With New Features In Tow

Back in May, Liam spent some hands-on time testing out a then-new app called CallApp. Dubbed as a sort of supercharged caller ID, CallApp gives detailed info about who's calling you (or who you're calling), by pulling information from various social networks and the web.

Soon after release, the app was voluntarily pulled from the Play Store. During the app's hiatus from official channels (it was still available through their official site), however, the devs were still working on it. Making it better. Adding new features. Doing other stuff.

The new CallApp is now back in the Play Store, bringing along with it all sorts of new features, like a "reminders" section that displays missed calls, manually-set reminders, and automatically aggregated birthdays.

[New App Review] Current Caller ID Brings Solid Caller ID With A Social Twist, If You're Into That Sort Of Thing

Android's selection of good incoming Caller ID apps is a bit meager. While a search of the Play Store yields many options, most of them are deficient in one important way or another (or, not free), or flat-out sketchy. One of the more popular ones was actually WhitePages Caller ID - which Current Caller ID replaces, as it's made by the same company.

What makes WhitePage's app special (and better than others), in part, is that it utilizes the company's rather extensive curated directory of phone numbers - over 300 million currently.

Current Caller ID also brings in a social element, pulling data from your Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn accounts to provide even more information about the people calling you.

[Updated x2] New App Review: CallApp Makes Your Dialer Useful Again - Say Hello To Telephony 2.0

Going above and beyond their promise to save "time and annoyance" when screening, placing, or receiving calls, CallApp recently released their namesake app (a TechCrunch Disrupt 2012 finalist) to Google's Play Store.

CallApp – in what may be the biggest understatement of the week – bills itself as a "super caller ID," increasing call productivity with a set of handy interactive tools and quick informational displays for everyone that calls (or initiates a call with) you. The app pulls information from various services, including Twitter, Facebook, Linkedin, Foursquare and even your calendar or email, searching for the most relevant and timely info for each caller.
