As I have been using both apps so now let me tell you what is the major difference in both apps. True Caller Id App lets you search any unknown number which is not even present in your phone directory, it means you can search info regarding any random number but with Contactive Free Caller ID App you can just track the info of calls made to you either by a known or an unknown number. Truecaller id app displays the name as it is written on a social network account associated with that number even if it is in your contact list but Contactive Free Caller Id apps displays the name as it is in contact list.
  • With Contactive Free Caller ID App you can use it as replacement for you stock caller app i.e. you can make calls with it but with “True Caller Id” app you can’t do that, I guess that is the best advantage Contactive Free Caller ID App has over it :)
