iOS users have just been treated to a new version of the popular Truecaller app, which is now in its 12th iteration and promises to be much smaller in size while enjoying a serious boost in speed and efficiency — even on older devices.
Truecaller uses a bespoke spam caller algorithm that works in the background of iOS, updated by the Truecaller community, to spot any malicious or spam calls before they ruin your day. The app now boasts some of the best and most accurate caller ID and scam blocking smarts in existence, and automatically updates its intel without users needing to put in any manual work.
The app has also had a total design refresh, resulting in much quicker navigation and a more intuitive layout, special caller ID Emojis that easily identify the type of incoming call at a glance, as well as powerful search function.
“We’ve been innovating within Apple’s platform to bring users more powerful features like Call Alerts and a convenient search extension. This update has been a long time coming for many iPhone users, and now we can offer them the best performing identifier of spam and scam to help them separate the noise from the communication they want to respond to,” says Alan Mamedi, Co-founder and CEO of Truecaller.
According to the company’s website, Truecaller 12 will offer significant improvements to SMS filtering and spam detection, as well as the following valuable updates:
- 10x better Caller ID and protection against spam and scammers.
- Simple onboarding for new users.
- Enhanced detail view when searching for numbers.
- Redesigned search extension and number lookup widget.
As well as the main auto-blocking feature, Truecaller will now offer detailed spam stats and the ability to comment on spam numbers in the log, making for a genuinely valuable and powerful iOS app.
World’s Largest Metaverse Developer Opens Dubai Office
LandVault, the largest metaverse creator, is expanding its presence into the MENA region.
LandVault, the world’s largest metaverse developer, will expand operations to Dubai later this month as part of an ongoing strategy to boost its presence in the MENA region. The company aims to help local businesses gain a foothold in the expanding web 3.0 universe and sees exciting opportunities to bolster its client portfolio.
So far, metaverse developer LandVault has lived up to its name, creating and curating over 100 square feet of virtual space for a diverse range of organizations, including the nearby Yas Marina Circuit, Aldar, Mastercard, Standard Chartered, World of Women, Hershey’s, and many more.
The Dubai government’s Metaverse Strategy is one of the key reasons LandVault has been inspired to move to the region, as leaders plan to transform the Emirate into one of the world’s top 10 metaverse economies by 2030. Eventually, it’s hoped that in excess of 1,000 companies in the blockchain and web 3.0 spaces will be inspired to set up entities in the region, creating around 40,000 new jobs in the process.
“We are excited to open our office in Dubai and to be a part of the vibrant tech community in the UAE. The MENA region is a key market for us, and we believe that our presence in Dubai will allow us to assist the region and explore new opportunities. We are also excited about the potential for the metaverse in the real estate industry in the UAE. We look forward to working with developers and real estate companies to showcase their properties in a new and innovative way,” says Sam Huber, CEO of LandVault.
Alongside developing the metaverse from its new Dubai office, LandVault will also deploy its technology to assist the UAE’s real estate sector. Developers will soon be able to showcase their projects in a way that was never previously possible, reaching a much wider audience with immersive and interactive property tours and even virtual showrooms.
