What's New

Improved usability and stability.

App Description

The phone call is fun again! Share location, photos, contacts and more, with real-time updates, while you're talking on the phone.

Thrutu for iPhone comes with six buttons built in:

★ Location: see each other’s position on a map, updating live as you move.
★ Camera: snap and share a photo during a call
★ Gallery: share a photo that's already stored on the phone.
★ Contacts: instantly send contact details
★ Prod: convey touch in a phone call by making the other phone vibrate!
★ Doodle: share interactive sketches as you talk.

Plus, you can install extra buttons - games, utilities and social networking services - from Thrutu Central, our directory of buttons created by the Thrutu Team and by our developer community.

Don't want to talk on the phone? With the new interactive mode, you can even use all these real-time sharing games and utilities without making a phone call. Interactive mode alerts your Thrutu-enabled friend to join into an interactive session where you can exchange free text messages, real-time maps, doodles, co-browsing, games and much more.

Thrutu brings new fun and function to the phone call. It's so simple that you'll wonder why phone calls couldn't always work this way.


On Twitter we've had great comments from users like these:
★ "Holy moly, Thrutu is an amazing app! This is how I was promised I'd be able to use my phone in the future"
★ "Mobile voice calls redefined"
★ "Trying out Thrutu now, this is amazing!"

"Thrutu makes phone calls more interactive than voice can accomplish on its own" - LifeHacker
"A great little app" - T3 Magazine
"Welcome to the future, now" - Mobile Computing News


For the best experience, Thrutu needs a simultaneous data connection alongside the phone call. Most, but not all, 3G networks support this - notably, if you're a Verizon user, you'll need to be connected to Wifi to get the fully interactive experience. If there's no data connection available, or if the person you're talking to doesn't have the app installed, Thrutu makes it really easy to share things using SMS messages (or email if you prefer) instead.

To activate Thrutu on your phone, you have two options:

★ Send an SMS to our servers. This is really easy, but depending on your location, this may be an international SMS.
★ If you prefer not to send this SMS, you can activate manually by entering your phone number.
