Avoid spam calls, find numbers faster with Current Caller ID on Android

Last year, I shared how to use the Whitepages Current Caller ID app to easily track blocked calls and texts. Now, Whitepages has added the ability to spot many of today’s spam/scam numbers, along with some other convenient features.

If you don’t have the app already, there’s no time like the present to get a copy. Current Caller ID is available for Android 2.2 and up.

The UI for the app has received a makeover, sporting lighter colors and better organization for its features. For example, the previous version of the app had two tabs for your call log — one Recent and the other Frequent — but now there’s just one tab with a toggle for the two choices. The Blocked calls/texts menu has also moved to the row of icons along the bottom.

When a phone number is part of an area code that has a high spam score, an alert will be shown on the Whitepages info window when making or receiving a call. According to Whitepages, their app can identify over 21,000 different scam numbers. Additionally, they will keep updating their spam directory to maintain the accuracy of flagged numbers.
