Hey everyone, we’ve resolved the earlier issues with the new update for Reverse Lookup and have continued our rollout on the Google Play Store. Everyone should have it by Christmas barring any unexpected issues. Have a great weekend!

Hey everyone – small update. We’re seeing a new crash introduced in this latest update, so we’ve halted it for now. We’re working on a fix and expect to resume rollout by this weekend. If you have already received the update and are experiencing crashing, please delete the app and redownload it from the Google Play Store- you will be served the previous version. Sorry for the inconvenience!
As we wind down another great year and get ready for the holiday season, we’re ready to push out one last update to Reverse Lookup and Reverse Lookup PLUS. This is version 3.1.22 and features some small but long overdue tweaks to the main call log screen. Here’s a brief overview of what was added or changed:
Previous versions of the app displayed more date information than you probably cared to see, all the way down to the microsecond that the call came in. This caused more clutter than necessary, so we’ve switched to using friendlier date formats. For more recent calls, you’ll see relative dates like “Today”, “Yesterday”, or the day of the week. If a call is a few days old, you’ll see the full date. In either case, you’ll always see the time of the call, but no more microseconds. We apologize in advance to all microsecond enthusiasts.
One-Tap Return To Top
If you’re the type of person that keeps a long call log, it can be pretty tedious to navigate back to the top of the list once you’ve gotten close to the bottom. No more. Just tap on the app’s title bar and back to the top you go.
Call Frequency Indication
In order to reduce clutter, Reverse Lookup has never listed duplicate calls from the same number. This was great for keeping a tidy list, but we’ve come to discover that identifying nuisance calls is easier when you can see how many times a number is calling. The app will still only list each caller once, but now you’ll see an indicator that shows the number of times their number is listed in your call log. This will be displayed next to the call date(if applicable).
Improved Loading And Reloading
Depending on the speed of your phone, this change may be less noticeable, but the main call log screen is now loaded more efficiently, which should provide for a smoother launch of the app. The refresh function also benefits from this improvement.
That’s all for this version, and we’re rolling out starting now on the Google Play Store. This will be a slow rollout, so please look forward to receiving it within the next 2 weeks or so.
As always, thank you to all of our users. Your continued support makes these updates possible, and for that we’re extremely grateful.
Happy Labor Day!
The latest version of Reverse Lookup, 3.1.20 is now at 100% distribution through the Google Play Store. All users should be able to grab the update within the next few hours.
This rollout began a few days ago, so if you’ve received an update earlier this week, you’re probably already running the latest version.
This release fixes a few bugs and further improves search results. Reverse Lookup PLUS is expected to receive it’s equivalent update within the next few days.
Thanks, and please shoot us an email if you have any issues or questions.
Just a quick note to let everyone know that the previously announced update for Reverse Lookup is now going live for all users, so if you have not received the update in the past couple weeks, you should see it available on the Play Store starting in the next few hours.
We’re also going to be releasing a followup update in the next 2 weeks to further improve search results. PLUS users will receive both updates rolled into one on both Google Play and Amazon Appstore. Stay tuned for updates on this next update, and as usual please let us know if you have any questions.
UPDATE: The issue has been resolved and an update is now available in the Play Store.
We’re aware of an issue that is currently causing Reverse Lookup and Reverse Lookup PLUS to return a small amount of search results with garbled information. We are working to resolve the issue as soon as possible.
We apologize for any inconvenience and will update when the issues are resolved.
A new update for Colordu Color Sudoku is now live on the Play Store. In addition to aesthetic updates, we’ve split off support for different platforms into individual APKs, so your device’s hardware dictates which version you will receive. End result – much smaller storage requirements!
These changes won’t hit the web version until later this year, so be sure to grab it on Android if you want to check out what’s new.
Oh, and if you play one of our other Android games, you can expect to see a similar size-reducing update in the next 2-3 weeks as we are currently working on rolling out these changes to our entire library.
Earlier this week, we pushed out version 3.1.12 of Reverse Lookup PLUS. This update includes a few minor bug fixes, but the real focus here is improvements to the experimental caller id mode.
Because this option has been fairly unknown up until now, we thought it might be beneficial to go over it briefly.
So, what is it? Well, it’s called “Caller ID mode”, so take a guess! Yes, this option will (attempt to) identify incoming calls while the phone is ringing. There are two caveats here, though – your carrier must support simultaneous voice and data and we must have data for the caller cached in our main database. If the caller id can’t identify the caller, it doesn’t mean that the app itself won’t get a hit, just that the data isn’t cached and readily available yet. (So it’s definitely worthwhile to check the main app if caller id fails!)
Enabling Caller ID Mode – To enable Caller ID Mode, open Reverse Lookup PLUS , navigate to the Settings screen, and toggle it on.
Positioning – Pretty much every device has a different incoming call display, so it would have been impossible for us to choose a perfect location to display caller id. For this reason, you can simply drag the caller id display up or down to best fit your phone’s incoming call screen. When you settle on a position that works for you, the app will automatically save it so it will appear in the correct spot next time.
Visual improvements – In version 3.1.12 of Reverse Lookup PLUS, we’ve improved the aesthetics of the caller id display. It now adapts to the theme chosen within Reverse Lookup PLUS itself – either dark or light depending on what you’ve chosen. The display is now also slightly transparent so you can still see all of your incoming call screen. We’ve also added the Reverse Lookup logo to the caller id display to better identify the source of the display.. there’s nothing more frustrating than to forget where a pop-up display originates from in case you want to disable it.
A note for Marshmallow users – In Android Marshmallow (Android 6.0), you must ensure that Reverse Lookup PLUS has permission to draw over other applications. This should be enabled by default when you install the app, but if you’ve turned on caller ID in the app’s settings and aren’t seeing it during calls, following this procedure should solve your issue.
On devices running vanilla Android, you can set this in System Settings > Apps > Gear Icon > Draw Over Other Apps
On Samsung devices such as the Galaxy S7, it’s System Settings > Application Manager > More > Apps That Can Appear On Top
On other devices, the menus may have slightly different names, but the option should be in a similar place within the phone’s Application Settings.
