Truedialer app by Truecaller gets an Arabic keypad

January 26, 2015

Truecaller just announced the launch of an Arabic keypad on its Truedialer app on Google Play

This move was made to make it easy for app users in the Arab world to take advantage of the app’s predictive elements and basically use Truedialer to replace their existing contacts app.

So if the user wants to dial the number of a contact outside their phonebook, they can see their name as well as a profile picture before placing the call. The days of you dialing a wrong number are minimized, if not, gone.

If you want to search for information about the person you’re calling, you may do so, and Truedialer will give you some profile information like the business that goes with the number being dialed. You can stay protected from spam calls and scams. Truecaller will identify the number as such if its been reported by its community as an unwanted one.

Moreover, as a predictive text tool, T9 search will help you dial your favorite contacts.

“The Truedialer app provides a very easy and convenient user interface to replace the traditional phonebook app, and improves the overall smartphone experience,” said Nami Zarringhalam, co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer at Truecaller. “The Middle East is a very important market for us and we wanted to reinforce our commitment to our users here and provide them with an authentic Truedialer experience in their own language. Adding the Arabic keypad to Truedialer was therefore a natural next step in our development of Truedialer.”

The Truedialer app is available for free on Android phones as well as Windows Phone.
