Caller ID application for Android
The default caller screen on Android is really bland. Don’t get me wrong it works just fine but when you need something more than just a name and a number, it fails. This is where the best caller ID apps for Android come into play.
These apps are designed to give you an edge when receiving calls from known and unknown numbers. A simple call screen might be enough for many but for those who need to go the extra mile; we recommend the best caller ID apps for Android.
Note: The 6 best caller ID apps for Android were tested on a Samsung Galaxy Note III smartphone. The apps worked fine and no problems were faced during testing.
Look Who’s Callin’
Caller ID & Block is the number one app on the list because it delivers what it promises. The app has an amazing looking interface which is readily understandable and intuitive. The caller ID can identify calls from numbers you don’t know before you answer the call.
What impresses me the most is the Spam ID feature of the app which is a life saver (sleep saver for me).
The app automatically identifies spam numbers and asks your permission to block them. My carrier likes to call me at 9 in the morning to sell some overpriced LTE packages, which is unfortunate because that’s the time when I go to bed.
With this great app installed on my phone, the carrier texts and calls never get through.
- An amazingly looking interface.
- Call blocking works like a charm.
- Can grab photos and information from social media.
The wonderful thing about this app is that it can be used in conjunction with other dialer apps. I used Contact+ as my dialer and this app intuitively displays a bubble of information right over the call screen. This way I can reap the benefits of this app without leaving my trusty old dialer behind.
2. Truecaller – Free with In-app Purchases
Truecaller is a replacement for your standard and boring looking contact book. This app is much more intelligent and provides services which are never to be found on stock contact books. The app is not just contact storage though; it helps in identifying unknown callers as well as block unwanted calls.
I wish I had this app back in high school when my number became wildly popular (I had a girly voice). Blocking unknown callers is easy as a pie with this app. The interface is one of the best I have seen in a long time and clearly the developers have given it ample time.
In-app Purchases: $0.99 – $9.99 per item
- Block spammers and telemarketers.
- Know who is calling you, even if you don’t have their number.
- Updates contacts according to social media.
The app comes with a predictive call suggestion feature. Basically it notes who you like to call at what time and place and then suggests to you the number as you open the app.
For example I like to call my mom from university to know what is for dinner; the app automatically brings her number up at that specific time. You can even send emoji filled text messages right from the app.
