Truecaller is a caller identification app developed in Scandanavia in the year 2009. The application provides several services apart from caller identification such as flash messaging, call recording and even call blocking.
The app is owned by Stockholm-based True Software Scandinavia AB and developed by Alan Mamedi and Nami Zarringhalam. It essentially uses mobile network services for caller identification and other functions.
The latest Truecaller update (v12.6.6 on Android at the time of writing) has added a bunch of functionality, including video caller ID, voice-based call announcer, a new, redesigned interface, and enhancements to the call recording feature, making it quite simple to enable and use. The app offers several premium services for free with the latest update.
However, the call recording feature is only available on the Android version of the app. The iOS version, still at v11.43.12 only adds improvements to the in-app search and the ability to toggle caller ID.

“Life’s too short to not express how you feel” — I have always lived by this quote and at times of anxiety or restlessness I always resort to expressing how I feel through art and scribbling my thoughts. I believe in spontaneity and sometimes that’s what leads to some of the best content I create.
