Truecaller is probably the most powerful app for managing incoming calls in Windows Phone Store. It allows you to block calls from a certain number, identify unknown incoming calls, and more. You can create your own spam/unwanted list and Truecaller will automatically block any calls from any number of that list.

The latest update of the app, which goes by the number of 5.1.0 offers a handful of new features, improvements and bug fixes. And the most notable change is improved spam detection system, which searches the Truecaller’s global spam list and blocks all incoming calls from the ‘members’ of that list. Truecaller also comes with a new Live Tile, which will notify you if you have some notifications or alerts.

Truecaller eventually received another update, 5.1.1 a couple of days ago, but that update didn’t bring any new features or improvements, but was focused on bug fixes only. So all important updates of the app have been made in the 5.0.0 version.

Here’s the complete changelog of v5.1.0 and v5.1.1 updates:
