A few weeks ago I mentioned a new application called Mr. Number (formerly Skydeck), a crowd-sourced caller ID app with features like contacts backup, automatic reverse lookup and more. Previously you could not manually do a reverse lookup with Mr. Number but the latest version of the app now let’s you do just that. From their blog:
Now you can do reverse lookup of any US number. If you get a call on your home phone or work line that you don’t recognize, or you’re trying to make sense of your phone bill, just fire up Mr. Number. You can type a number by hand or highlight a number in the call log on your phone, press the menu button, and select Mr. Number.
We’ve also changed the prompt that appears after calls from mystery numbers to let you report spam calls. Your reports will show up on our our spam report site and help other members to avoid calls from telemarketers, robodialers, and other telephonic plagues.
