CallApp, an Israeli crowd-sourced universal social contact-book, has raised over a $1m in seed funding.
Backers include former president of Microsoft’s Strategic Global Center Moshe Lichtman and Giza Venture Capital.
Founded in 2011 by CEO Oded Volovitz and CTO Amit On (former CTO of Amobee), CallApp provides users with all the information they need about anyone they communicate with, even if that contact is not in their contact-book or in any of their social networks.
It displays the contact’s latest photo, social activity, websites, email and additional valuable information.
CallApp achieves all that by connecting each phone to a universal social contact-book of over half a billion phone numbers. This contact book is integrated with over 50 different information sources such as social networks, online directories, search engines and more. Combining all the information available about people & businesses from the web with everything CallApp users decide to share about their contacts: reviews, spam alerts, comments.
The app may be downloaded for free via Google Play. A Sign up for the iPhone version is available via www.callapp.com.
