The free phonebook app Truecaller and dial pad replacement app Truedialer will now come equipped with a new option that will enable users to tag a contact based on a broad range of categories such as Transportation, Banking / Finance, or Drinks and Nightlife, making it even easier to identify the number of your cab driver or your bank.

Since day one, when Truecaller came to life on an online forum, and experienced the first 10 thousand downloads, the Stockholm-based company has been dedicated to working together with their global community towards a vision of smarter and trustworthy communication. The latest feature launch represents a significant step in Truecaller’s commitment to enhance their technology, and use data in a smarter way, by curating information into their database, and helping it to become truly intelligent, and able to learn organically.

Truecaller has just announced that their global community has reached the 200 million user milestone, doubling user base in less than 10 months. Truecaller now sees over 3 billion searches per month, showing a 50% growth from last quarter.

“Truecaller is about putting trust into communications and adding more information about who you’re communicating with, and the Tagging feature will take this commitment one step further,” said Alan Mamedi, CEO and Co-Founder of Truecaller. He continued: “Over time, we envision using this information to improve our users ability to identify who is contacting them, why they are contacting them, what they are contacting them about, and be able to make an informed decision as to whether to take the call, or not.”

Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, Truecaller was founded in 2009 by Alan Mamedi and Nami Zarringhalam, and is available on all Internet-enabled devices and on the web. Truecaller can be downloaded for free on popular platforms including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Tizen and Nokia feature phones. Truedialer is available for free on Android and Windows Phone, and Truemessenger is available for free on Android.
