TrueCaller update adds Persian language support, blocks installing to SD cards

Following its big update to 5.0 earlier this week, TrueCaller has picked up another that brings Persian language support and blocks installing the app to an SD card, along with the usual helping of bug fixes.

Here's what's new in TrueCaller version 5.0.2:

  • Added Persian language
  • Fix to block installing on SD-card since that will cause Caller ID not to work (system limitations)
  • Small Bug fixes

Earlier this week, TrueCaller was bumped up to version 5.0 in a massive update that brought real-time spam detection, an improved caller ID, Live Tile notifications, and much more. While today's update may seem relatively minor in comparison, it's nice to see a whole new language being added in the wake of such a large update. If you'd like to snag the latest version of TrueCaller, you can do so from the store link below.

Thanks to everyone for the tips!

  • Which they would make it work with the Nokia Lumia icon
  • Or non Lumia devices.
  • I had an HTC 8X that would tell me when I had a spam call come through on the older version. I think this is like everything else where the carrier can block useful stuff.
  • I have an att m8 for windows and my phone wont tell me where or who the number is. Sad times.
  • I love HTC, have a M8 droid, and REALLY wanted to get the WP version until I found out what you said, and you can't just block numbers like you can on other phones. I think it's one of the most used features of phones now and should be included.
  • I've never blocked a number. I just want to know where the number is from lol
  • I've heard that it doesn't support it because verizon is blocking that functionality. I'm kind of saddened
  • Anybody know if TMoUS is blocking it? Won't work on my Lumia 925..
  • Since the win10 tp update, Truecaller no longer works on my device...
  • Like most apps that a linking into the system.who would have expected thst
  • So why are these apps being prevented from installing to SD card. It seems like I constantly getting apps that are changing.
  • They disabled installing to the SD card because it wouldn't function properly unless it was on the device itself.
  • I guess that is his question. Why do they not function well enough. Cant be the access speed
  • Limitations of the Windows Phone 8.1 API prevent it from handling Caller ID from the SD Card. It must reside in phone memory.
  • Got a Persian friend..... She's hot. Really hot. Like, standing on one hand in yoga pants hot...
    You would NOT want to block her number.
  • Ask her to cook you rice with saffron. Trust me that is hotter than the friend.
  • I'm sure she cooks.
  • Saffron with rice and with chicken. That's the common (and unbelievably delicious) combination here.
  • haha!:D
    nice to see persion food lover!:D  
  • Here its hot girls in yoga pants
  • Friend zone.
  • Well, I made out with her once... Over ten years ago....... But, it still counts.
  • XD XD XD well mate, that counts nice one hehehehehehehehehehehe
  • you must ask her to make you some Persian food. its the best food you will ever have. if she does not cook, ask her mom or tell her to take you to a Persian resturant in your town. My wife LOVES Persian food more than any food out there, ever since she tried it. Every time we go to California we go to few Persian resturants there, and she tells me she never had food this delicious in her life. You MUST try it. My wife loves Kabob(chicken and beef) with rice, Ghormeh Sabzi, Ghaymeh, Fesenjan, Shirazi salad, Ghaymeh Bademjan,(all with basmati rice and saffron)................ well, mention these dishes and see, which one she can make for you. They all take a LONG TIME to make though, but you will be in heaven eating it (if she is a great cook of course).   
  • WOw :D
    U know some of deliciousest Iranian food;) and make me feel hungry:/ I want fesenjan right now!:D
    come here u can find another interesting things ;)
  • Never thought about Persian food.... Sound delish.
  • That is why I married a Persian girl. Smart and can cook like the heavens. I rub her feet and got 3 kids just to make sure she ain't leaving lol.
  • I'm Persian I'm happy for seeing these comments :)
  • Do they sell high end devices in Persia❓
  • Yes. I currently have a Lumia 1520.
  • Cool. Me too... How do you feel about the next 1520 being smaller than 6"❓ I'm not too excited about it at all.:-\:-\:-\:-\:-\
  • 5.7" to 6" isn't bad BUT i want following specs: Snapdragon 820, 4K Super AMOLED screent 4Gb of Ram, 32Gb internal storage with SD Slot, 25Mp rear and 8Mp front cam, 4A non removable battery (phones with non removable batteries looks better.), Sense ID and Retina scanner, N-Trig Pen,
  • Perfection
  • Lol.
  • Retry it if you installed to SD, it may work when not on SD.
  • Still asks to click in discovery on numbers you already have.
  • Nice, Its first time I see a topic with 'Persian' word in it :D
  • This is the first time I visit a Persian in Windows Central.
    Glad to see you Farshad.
  • Nice to meet you too :)
  • Me too
  • yeah me 2!:D
    Omid bakhshe;)
  • I paid a lot for my htc one and with the lackof w10 tp support and lumia-exclusive featues it feels moe like flagship hadware and nothing else moe by the day.
  • Doesn't this app know my phone number and the phone calls I receive?
  • Reviews in store are pretty bad
  • Windows phone community is really aggressive if compared with other communities.
  • Must be much older reviews from when Truecaller didn't have Caller ID. Look at "most recent" reviews.
  • I'm AsLaNoV in the store comments :D
  • And by the way, the app on my 520 still not working like they say
    So I'm not changing my review for now
  • Watching a Persian vampire movie right now. Installed this app and waiting to see how it treats the spam calls.
  • Now it truly works....I've tried it out and it did really worked
  • The app still has a bug, i cant get it to install on my 925 and i had it before. mayne 
  • Same here can't able to install on L620 showing error (Attention Required) at last moment of installation
