Android smartphone users can now make really cheap calls to family and friends living or working abroad thanks to the new Android app from Localphone. Based in the UK, Localphone one of the largest independent mobile VoIP providers, may not be familiar to many users, but this app may change that.
The Localphone Android app is the latest of a series of services allowing Localphone customers to make low-cost international calls to landlines or mobiles phones to over 250 countries worldwide. This pay-as-you go service is free from monthly contracts and with no hidden charges, it really is a must have for smartphone users making calls abroad.
“Androids share in some of our key markets has sky-rocketed, with surveys indicating more than 40% of new smartphone sales in the UK and US going to Googles mobile OS,” said Paul Cusack, Localphones founder and CEO. “Our customers have been crying out for an Android app so we are pleased to announce this new addition to our mobile lineup, and look forward to expanding to further platforms in the New Year.”
With call rates starting from 0.5 per minute, this dynamic and flexible app allows users to manage their contacts and keep up-to-date with their credit whilst on the move. The app mirrors the companys existing iPhone offering also allowing users to send cheap international text messages.
The app can be downloaded for free from the Android Market, or customers can visit the companys dedicated Localphone for Android page. The app uses the phones own dialer to make local calls that connect internationally, which means it wont use up a customers data allowance.
