  • Whozcalling Now Available In the Cydia Store!

    Are you tired of those people that call you who aren't on your contact list? Find out who they are!

    If you have ever owned an Android phone, chances are that you know about the Whozcalling application. It's a free application that activates when you get an incoming call from someone that isn't in your contacts. Whozcalling then searches a database for that phone number and it retrieves a first and last name so that you always know who is calling you whether they're in your contact list or not. This means that you will no longer have to suffer with clandestine callers who are always trying to hide their identity from you by using someone else's phone.

    Another use is that if a stranger calls and it turns out to be a wrong number, you will know ahead of time instead of wasting time answering it. Or, maybe a family member got a new phone and is calling you to tell you. Whozcalling is a great way to know exactly who is calling you at all times. When the incoming calls comes in, you will get a Whozcalling popup like the one in the screenshot above. It shows the number, like usual, in the top panel of the lock screen. Then the popup displays the first and last name of the caller.

    Whozcalling requires an internet connection; 3G or Wi-Fi. It puts an application icon on your home screen that offers a call history of all of your recently tagged calls. Miss the call while it was in your pocket? No problem. Just open the application and you'll find a screen that looks like the one pictured below:



    They're blurred out to hide identities (obviously), but it shows you the first and last name, the city and state, and their full phone number. That's more than enough information to identify who just called you. Whozcalling makes the iPhone's caller ID feel more like true caller ID because with your home phone, you don't need to add people to a contact list to get the caller ID on them. I think that this application is a must-have. The only thing that I can't stand about this application is the icon - it's a circle, and feels out of place with the rest of my applications. Other than that, it works great.

    Whozcalling has a great rating between four and five out of five stars. It's free in Cydia as of today and I think if you're looking for a solution to finding out who that annoying caller is, then you should check it out and see if it works for you.

      This is a horrible app. I installed it last night and it only found 1 out of 30 numbers. I had several calls since when I last ran it so I decided to give it another try. This time, the damn things said its downloading a virus!!!!!! Needless to say i deleted the app and wont be re-installing it.

      Yeah, you guys need to watch this video, I know she talks about an Android App called Osmino, but this app does the exact same thing. Privacy issues guys...

      Osmino App [Sassi Bombs with SassiBoB] & [Android App Review] - YouTube

      That's why not all the numbers are showing up, they haven't been uploaded from someone else's contacts.

      By using this app, YOU are sharing OTHER peoples personal information. I don't know if this App goes as far as Osmino goes, but I can tell you, DO NOT USE IT!

      Dears,

      After spending two days trying to figure out why its crashing on startup I finally figuref it out!!!

      Situation: Upgraded from ios 4.3.3 to 5.0.1
      Restored settings from iphone backup.

      Problem: whozcalling app crashes on splash screen.

      Solution: Easy!!! And it does make sense.
      Clear All your recent Calls. And try it out.

      I cleared recent calls and completely removed whozcalling from ifile going thru preferences and removing the plist file of whozcalling then installed again!

      Result: Problem solved without fresh install of ios.

      Regards,
      Saad

      it does work outside the US! it is an international application. In fact, the creators of this app are lebanese, from Lebanon in the Middle east. This is where the application started
