  1. Hey Omkar,

    I very honestly use this service of an app on my fone. I would like to share that I also noticed that the frequency of updates of the duplicate data is very slow, meaning that I saw a person by one name which was an older name and probably from the first contacts list that got synced. I have another more appropriate name for the same person, since the older name contains his company name that he left a few years back. There is no way as of now to update this outdated information. Well not that am cribbing, love the app totally.

    Was able to block out spam callers as well as identify almost 80% of the time the person calling esp. when i did not have their number saved on my fone.

    Essential app!
