The largest phone number search engine, Truecaller, has upgraded its dialer app for Android devices.

Truedialer which now supports more than 500 dual sim devices with an improved feature that allows users switch SIM cards easily, make one-click calls from the dial pad and identify unknown numbers from the call history.

The app with it’s “enhanced search” feature now supports keyboards for French, Russian, Swedish, Portuguese and Persian — and also a display of  SIM card users call from within the app’s call log.

According to a release on its website, the dual SIM feature will provide a better communication style for its users. “Many people around the world have separate numbers for texting or calling their friends, and sometimes, prices may be cheaper for one action or the other. We at Truecaller are dedicated to providing the best experience for our users’ way of life when it comes to their communication styles.”

Also, Truecaller is hoping that its dialer will replace users’ default dialer as stated by the firm’s co-founder in a post by NDTV.com:

“Supporting Dual SIM devices is not a matter of choice for us, it’s a central part of the phone experience for our users. With every new release, we are taking one step closer to making Truedialer a complete replacement of your default dialer and we look forward to expanding our relationships with OEMs and operators to meet the growing demands of our users globally,” says the firm’s co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer Nami Zarringhalam.

The app is available for download on Android, iOS, Windows Phone and BlackBerry.
