7 Best Contacts And Dialer Apps For Android
The primary function of a phone is to speak with other people, other features like social media interactions, gaming, business, blogging and other activities are a bonus that makes our daily life much easier. However, the Contact and Dialer apps are the most overlooked apps in the Play Store. Mostly because the default dialer app that comes bundled with the phone gets the job done for most users. But nowadays, you can do much more using these apps - from setting contact-based reminders to managing all your social media profiles, you can do it all right from your Contact and Dialer apps.
Phones these days often come with brand-specific dialer UIs pre-installed. Thanks to Android, customizing and personalizing the dialer too is supremely easy. More often than not, the syncing of various accounts like Twitter, Instagram, Whatsapp, Facebook, Gmail etc lead to an extensive list. This leads to the need of segregating and grouping contacts, filtering and the need for easy search options minus lags.
For these purposes, we have listed the 7 Best Contacts and Dialer Apps currently available in the Play Store.
If you are bored of the traditional Phonebook apps, it is time to Switch to Drupe. Its uniqueness lies in the fact that it lets tooth choose your contact first and then decide how to communicate. Once installed, Drupe will always be one swipe away, from a trigger zone of your choice.
The Drupe is known for its unique and responsive design. It has semi-transparent floating icon accessible from all your screens. It provides a plethora of features such as the smart dialer, built-in call recorder, contact-based reminders, seamless integration with third-party apps, integrated call blocker and much more. Scroll through the entire contact list or just the favorites, and then drag the contact bubble to the voice call icon, text message or any other specified apps (the list is easy to edit from Settings).
The app is highly customizable with tons of free themes, optional shortcuts etc. The app also offers a standard T-9 dialer, complete with speed searching. A floating Facebook Messenger style bubble will notify you about missed calls and the like. The app is available for free in the Play Store.
2. True Dialer
The king of third-party calling apps, TrueCaller is functional for many reasons. First, apart from blocking spam calls pretty accurately, it also fills names of unknown callers from its database into the call logs. Next, the tiny green dots in the interface show you if the person is ready to take phone calls. A red dot means the person is busy on another call or their phone is in DND mode. You can ask the person to call you back when they are free, and they will get a notification once they are available. The app also has swiping gestures to quickly initiate a call or text message. Lastly, you can choose a dark theme if you prefer.
TrueCaller constantly keeps updating the user interface and adds new features regularly. The only gripe is the in-app ads, although you can remove them, for Rs. 60 per month. It is a little expensive as a monthly subscription though, and we wish the company had gone with a one-time purchase model instead.
Contacts+ is a beautifully built address book, which stands out from the crowd because it integrates your social networks and other messaging applications into one neat user interface, pulling metadata and other relevant information on your contacts, including photos into a streamlined and modern interface.
On set up, the app asks you to integrate and sync with your various social media accounts and get their updates as well. In terms of managing and organizing your contact list, the application offers a fantastic way to sort and apply groups to your contacts. It has an inbuilt messaging board and is recommended for those who like aesthetics with functionality.
