Foocall by Ghost Telcom LTD lets you place international phone calls for as cheap as they come, and for an designed to make calls – it does pretty much exactly what you expect it to do. There’s a keypad for manual number entering, but Foocall will read your iPhone contacts and allows you to add your own international contacts. You can also choose a contact from your Foocall history. Foocall gets high marks for being easy and useful for those with people to call outside of their local area.
Foocall provides your iPhone with a local number that patches through to an international number, so you’re only using your local minutes while Foocall does all the legwork. From there, you pay Foocall some cheap rates per minute. You can pay as much as you want ahead of time to top up your balance before calling.
This app has been around for a while for other cell phones as well as for computers and landline phones but has only just been released for iPhone. It’s easy, cheap and free to sign up. If you have friends, family or business in other countries, there is no excuse not to have Foocall in one form or another.
Try it for yourself! When you download the app, it gives you 50 UK pence worth of free minutes (they are a UK based company) just so you can see how awesomely easy and useful it really is before you make any kind of commitment. As far as iPhone international calling goes, you can’t get much better than this.
FooCall requires iPhone OS 2.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone only.
