If staring at the incoming callers’ visage just wasn’t enough, Current’s Caller ID might worth a try. The utility app adds a raft of extra detail to your smartphone when it rings, from recent tweets and status updates through to weather conditions and even location data.

Based on your use history, the app will even offer up a time to return missed calls. Read the full story at Engadget.
