MobileVOIP: Written iPhone App Review
Say goodbye to expensive phone plans and racking up charges on long distance phone calls. The MobileVOIP app from developer Finarea SA will help you make those calls free of charge! It is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad, and runs on iOS 3.2 or later.
MobileVOIP primary purpose is to let you make mobile VoIP calls (local or international) for free or cheap rates. First things first, you will need to create a VoIP account which can be done by visiting their support site. Basically, you can place calls to contacts in your contact list which can be synced with the app. The app functions over various internet connections, and supports various VoIP providers.
After you login, you will be directed to your “Current Balance” screen with 8 options on the bottom. You can select the “VOIP Call”, “Call Back”, or “Local Access” options when placing a call. You can also send out cheap texts with the “Text Message” option. You can also browse through your call history, export and view your contacts list, and adjust your settings with the other main menu options.
Appearance and Layout:
Overall, the appearance of MobileVOIP is relatively decent. It is simplistic which is just what the app needs to be. There is no need for fancy graphics or images, since the app’s main function is to place calls at a cheaper and convenient rate. Placing calls are basic like any other phone related app or device would do, and app navigation is a breeze. App fonts and numbering is clear and easy to read, and users should have no problem figuring out what option does what.
It is a big plus that is offered for free. However, there are several other similar apps available in the market today, so it needs to present something more unique to make it stand out from its competitors, especially the already well-known ones. However, users might want to give this app a try, considering this may offer different routes and functions on placing calls that might appeal to some more than others. The only downside is for first time users, the signing up for a VoIP account might be a bit tricky, but after that, no other problems should arise. Overall, it is a handy app that could eventually save you time and money especially if you frequently place a lot of long distance and international calls.
