Call Informer - Why doesn't Android show the Organization name for callers?

    Call Informer shows any or all of the following on your Caller ID screen:

    Company name
    Job Title
    City and/or State

    The information comes from your Contacts database. Call Informer does not look this information up on the Internet or in a database; rather, it only shows information you have entered in the Contacts app on your device (or in Contacts through the Gmail web interface).

    You can change these aspects of the display:

    Font size
    Font color
    Vertical position (to accomodate different screen sizes)

    More details can be found on my site: Android Apps - Jesta's Funhouse. QRCode follows:


    I think Call Informer will benefit many more users than just myself. Give it a try!

    Interesting. Can it show the caller's assigned group(s)? Do you have a free or ad supported version to try it out?

    Thanks for your enthusiasm!

    Are you referring to the My Contacts / Friends / Family type groups in Gmail? At this time, that is not available, but it is a great idea. I will add this in the next update.

    Also, I don't have an ad-supported version, but am considering publishing one. For now, I reccomend buying the app and if you are not satisfied, you may get a refund.

    Let me know how you like Call Informer!

    It seems that this is what I'm looking for. How can I purchase it?
    There is not in android Market, neither in AppBrain (at least for Android 2.2)

    Any hint?

    Being more specific, I can find it as an option in AppBrain or through the QRCode, but then when I choose to go to market, I'm getting the message "The requested item could not be found"

    Is there any way to pay you through credit card and then download it?

    (PS) I understand that for my request you spend time worth more than the $0.99 you will earn, but I hope that by solving this problem your addressable market will increase :)

    Actually, Google keeps $0.30 from each sale... Anyway, I'm not worried about your payment. PM me and I will send you a link to the APK.

    Also, can you give me details on your phone? Are you running a custom ROM? Are you able to find and purchase other apps without any problems? What Android version are you running on which phone model? Have you tried the Eris Market Fix (I have heard it may help, but make sure it works with your model first)? Finally, have you tried clearing the Market app's cache and data?

    Thanks for your help in getting to the bottom of this!

    Well, finally I solved the puzzle, (with some help from local friend :)

    Since I appreciate your time spent for my case, as a minimum I had to find where the f@&% problem is!

    So, I found out that my mobile service provider does not have agreement with android market (actually none of the 3 mobile service providers in Greece has!). Which means that we (Greece mobile operators subscribers) cannot see/download whatever application in android market has any cost. Only free apps are shown and can be downloaded to our android devices. Having said that, the only way we can bypass this problem is by routing the device and using

    Thank you, gdimos, for such a thorough explanation! I'm very happy you were able to find a solution to this. I am looking at some solutions for distributing Call Informer in other ways than just Market. I will try to update this post when the situation changes.

    Thanks again!

    I used the gdimos solution with "market enabler" and it worked very well.

    Also "call informer" is working as specified on Samsung Galaxy S with 2.2 rom.
