One of the best parts of having an iPhone, is utilizing innovative Social Networking apps to get outside of your given mobile network. While you may actually have an AT&T plan, Verizon, or another provider, hugely popular applications such as Skype and WhatsApp allow users new and alternative ways to call, message, ping and poke your favorite people from around the world.
Simply by downloading, confirming an email address and cell number, users will be credited with $1.00 to give the app a test run. Users can avoid both roaming charges and International rates by utilizing the Freeje app; which has the traveling tourist in mind and at heart.
This app is extremely comprehensive and has a plethora of incentives to get users started. Downloading is quick, as the app itself is a tiny 6.7MB. Registration is easy, and will only require two steps of confirmation.
Users begin with a $1.00 credit, and can add more credit to the application as they go along. Freeje allows users to add numbers from over 70 different countries, and utilize a call-forwarding option as well. They even have your safety in mind, by giving you the option to chat over an encrypted channel.
Freeje allows users to call cell phones, Skype numbers or landlines in no time at all. Users can even investigate calling rates before dialing in, and are able to use various types of Internet connection to do so. Just a few of these types include 3G, 4G, WiFi, GPRS, and EDGE.
Concept and Functionality:
This concept is brilliant. While more and more users around the globe purchase and use iPhones, it’s apps like these that will continue to set the trend for innovative Social Networking and communication applications.
It may be hard to get you out of your routine of using Skype or WhatsApp, but this application has enough unique features and incentives to get you hooked and utilizing it in addition to your other familiar apps.
The apps interface is a bit bland, and I had some trouble confirming my cell number when first downloading this app. Still, those are relatively minor setbacks, considering the immense utility of this app as a whole, and avid travelers will greatly benefit from downloading this app.
Freeje requires iOS 4.3 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
