Don’t you just hate it when you get a phone call, answer, and find yourself in an endless conversation with some pushy telemarketer that wants to sell you stuff you do not need and definitely don’t want? WhitePages put out an Android app to prevent just such situations a while back, which was apply named Caller ID. Now they are announcing that the Android app has been enhanced and improved.

“The first version of Caller ID by WhitePages is one of the most successful Android apps to date with over 100,000 downloads. Users responded to the ability to find out who’s calling instantly — and, they asked us for even more innovative features. I’m excited to announce that we’re releasing a new and improved version of Caller ID by WhitePages, in the paid Android Market that will give our customers an even better Caller ID experience,” explains Director, Monetization & Mobile at WhitePages, Robert Moore.

Here is a list of features that were fitted to the first version of the Caller ID Android app that Robert Moore mentioned above:
- Traditional caller ID functionality (the name of the person calling you, as it appears in the WhitePages list)
- The address, city and state where the phone number is registered.
- Missed calls notifications.
- Seamlessly add phone numbers to your contacts list.
- Google Accounts syncing capability.

Here are the new features in the enhanced and improved Caller ID Android app developed by WhitePages:
- Enhanced call ID capability that encompasses mobile numbers and provides a better match rate. Also, identifying incoming calls is now done faster than ever thanks to the app’s enhanced performance and improved manner in which connections are handled.
- Telemarketing alerts for those times when you do not want to take the call of a known telemarketer.
- Reverse Phone allows you to look up phone numbers on demand.
- Various visual mods to make the app easier on the eye.

Robert Moore again: “To get the new and improved Caller ID by WhitePages, simply download the app through the Android Market icon on the phone menu. Just search for WhitePages. The price is $6.99 for six months of unlimited Caller ID – that’s less than one call to 411 per month, and a fraction of what you would pay for Caller ID on your home phone. Plus, you can try it for free for 7 days. What’s to lose?”
