"Night build" 2.0.18 dated August 03
download


* Fixed a bug due to which, when calling from an external application to a number, this number was sometimes lost somewhere
* Contacts now display all their nicknames, jobs, addresses and notes (previously in list of contacts and history displayed exactly 1 entry of each type)
* Search expanded to the entire set of nicknames, jobs, addresses and notes of a contact
* Removed the 60-day limit for nightly test versions
* TP now knows how to check for updates itself, you no longer need to follow the release new test versions, releases for Google Play (version with restrictions) and releases on w3bsit3-dns.com (version without restrictions)
* Added setting Advanced, Check for updates (enabled by default)
* Something else on the little things
Video calling still only one sided here, they see me but I have no video or controls at all. Google dialer seems to have figured out how to use carrier video chat at least but hopefully this app gets that as well.

Pardon me, but, why do you need a third party dialer app if you're on xiaomi.eu ?

You should have MIUI Dialer avaliable with native call recording in all xiaomi.eu ROMs.
True phone give you many more option especially in the management of two sims. It's totally customizable (appearance and behaviour). For call recording i use since many years skvalex call recorder. I think this combo it's the best.
The only thing I miss is spam detector. But i know the developer is working on it.

Yes, it's nice that True phone works with skvalex call recorder to record the call. They work well in tandem.

I currently use Cube ACR with True Phone, and call recordings work satisfactorily, of course except when using earphones.

And I use the default Google phone incoming call screen (a specific True Phone setting exists for enabling this mode) and so I get Google spam call identification and blocking.

"Night build" 2.0.18 dated August 18

* Fixed a bug with writing to the memory card (maybe you will need to reselect the folder)
* Changed the sorting of contacts (they returned special characters at the beginning of the name)
* The Send visible contacts option has been redone - now the file sends to any messengers without problems + the current contact visibility filter is applied
* Adapted to Android 13 (and, unfortunately, the Inbox Only mode will no longer be supported and will be automatically reset to TP screens when the system is updated)
* A list of changes has been added to the built-in updater, those. changes in all future updates can be viewed directly from the program in both Russian and English
* Something else on the little things

The changelog seems to be translation from Russian. True Phone call screens » 'Incoming calls only'?

Yes. I don't understand russian. So i use google translate. From the next release it will be the english changelog showed during the update process.
About your question, i think yes. Probably android 13 don't support this feature.
 
@exisapps
Preliminary: all contacts on my devices are stored locally without beeing synced by any app.
Installed latest nightly 20220818 on my main phone Samsung N986b with stock A12 and Nova Prime Launcher -> all fine.
Saved settings afterwards and restored those on Samsung tablet T825 with LineageOS19.1=A12 after updating TP there as well.
Before settings restore all contacts are shown BUT afterwards none in TP but still available in Lineage Contacts.
Had to go into settings to check again "local phone" in "contacts to show" menu as it probably has been overwritten by restoring and the local name in stock firmware is different (N986b "vnd.sec.contact.phone" to T825 "Local, not synchronised"
BUT the defined groups from N986b were not transferred although favorites were.
Is that a pro feature the nightly doesn't support?

Hello

Anyone knows here if this app could get dynamic colors (material you - android 12 and 13) ?
I love it, and have it for a very long time. I really would love to see it adapted to material you.

    Why is the translation project on Crowdin stopped? Why haven't new translations been added to version 2.0.18?
