Even with the popularity of social networking sites, people do still use the phone. Sometimes, though, it can be a little awkward when contacts call you up, expecting you to have read their latest status message or to have been following their tweets. You might just end up floundering for something to say or awkwardly pretending that you know what’s going on in their life. Current Caller ID can definitely help you with that.
Developed by WhitePages and described as “Caller ID on stereoids,” Current Caller ID makes sure that you won’t have to stumble through awkward explanations. When a friend calls you, you’ll instantly get their latest social updates from Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Current Caller ID makes it unnecessary for you to log in to each of your social network sites. It delivers the news right to you so you can stay in touch effortlessly.
Each contact’s address book entry also comes with your contact’s location, their occupation and an idea of your contact’s weather forecast. Current Caller ID certainly makes sure that small talk about the weather isn’t just a way to smooth over awkward conversation.
It’s easy to get into contact with people who frequently call you without even having to launch Current Caller ID. The app comes with a widget that you can put on your home screen. The widget can show you your Frequent Contacts from the past three months. Under each name is the last time you got into contact with that person.
Current Caller ID makes it possible for you to see just how you communicate with your contacts. If that isn’t enough, you can even check how you communicate with individual members of your family or cliques.
The app gives you access to your top three callers and texters in a fun presentation with crowns and pedestals. Each pedestal is a handy breakdown of how your contact gets in touch with you.
Current Caller ID isn’t just limited to the contacts you have in your address book. It goes an extra mile by being able to identify unknown callers contacting you. That way, you won’t have to debate whether or not you want to pick up the call. Current Caller ID lets you search the white pages but you’ll need to install the free WhitePages application from the Google Play Store. This gives you quick access to contact information of over 200 million people and businesses.
If Current Caller ID makes it easy for you to stay in touch effortlessly, it must be a paid app, right? Nope, it’s available for free but before you ask if it’s ad-supported, browsing through Current Caller ID reveals zero ads. Nothing mars the app’s clean interface. There is, however, a paid version of the app. Current Caller ID Plus keeps a full year of your history of call and text ID results.
Start getting into contact with your friends and know what’s happening in their lives by downloading Current Caller ID from the Google Play Store today.

Only issue I have with it is that a few contacts are mis-represented and I cannot change which social accounts they are attached too.
Hi Matt – it’s Bret from WhitePages. Thanks for the comment! We’ll have an update out shortly that will add the ability to change the social connections for your contacts. Hopefully that will help. You can also drop a note to mobilesupport at whitepages.com with the details and we can try to fix it in the meantime. Thanks again!
