Oct 11, 2012 (Globes - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Universal social contact developer CallApp Software has raised more than $1 million in a first round of financing from Giza Venture Capital and former Microsoft Israel CEO Moshe Lichtman.
CallApp has also unveiled the official beta-site of its crowd-sourced universal social contact book. CallApp's mobile solution provides users with all the information they need about anyone they communicate with, even if that contact is not in their contact-book or in any of their social networks. CallApp displays the contact's latest photo, social activity, websites, email and additional valuable information.
CallApp achieves this by connecting each phone to a universal social contact book of over half a billion phone numbers. This contact book is integrated with over 50 different information sources such as social networks, online directories, search engines and more. Combining all the information available about people and businesses from the web with everything CallApp users decide to share about their contacts: reviews, spam alerts, comments etc.
CallApp Software was founded in 2011 by CEO Oded Volovitz and CTO Amit On (former CTO of Amobee).
