CallmyName, a mobile domain name registry and name-dialing service, has released the Android (News - Alert) version of its socially-aware global dialer that is designed to systematically show highly relevant social updates or business information during incoming or outgoing calls.
By employing the new social dialer in smartphones, users can hope to reach millions of other businesses and people by simply typing their name while enriching contacts and calls with social updates. For example, if a user is making or receiving calls from businesses the app will show details of the business like its website, opening hours, e-mail addresses and a map with driving directions.
The new feature consolidates all of today's disparate forms of communication and if users want to contact another person or a business all they have to do is simply type the name of the destination and press the dial button.
“For the last several years we’ve been working hard at CallmyName to decipher the DNA of making communication natural and exciting. Much like when Web's domain names enabled the Internet identity revolution, now I can easily imagine a world where we direct all our numerous communication channels – e-mail, IM, phone calls etc. via a single, meaningful mobile call-name – be it our real name, brand name, professional nick name, etc.,” commented Ariel Efrati, CEO at CallmyName, in a statement.
The company added that the dialer facilitates dialing of alphanumeric characters in lieu of phone numbers on almost any GSM feature or smart phone. Individuals and businesses can register call names that are comprised of letters, digits and symbols in any sequence, combination, language or length.
Users can acquire the app from Google (News - Alert) Play application store for free and CallmyName’s existing customers just need to update.
