Was reading up on VOIP clients for my Android phone when I came across a press release about Voxofon, an interesting VOIP service that has clients for most smartphones out there. They have clients for Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7 and HP Palm webOS which covers 98% of the smartphone market. Now, I’m only really interested in the Android version, but it’s nice to know of a client I can recommend to other people. I’ve been asked about VOIP clients for Windows Phone 7 and the truth is that I didn’t know of one.
I love the way different phone providers integrate on Android. Once I select a contact and choose to phone them, the phone just asks me whether I want to use the standard dialer or pick one of the installed clients.
The great thing about VOIP clients is that it doesn’t really matter where in the world you are. As long as you have a data connection (over 3G or Wifi) you can place your call, and a VOIP service like Voxofon will probably be loads cheaper than your standard phone provider. So, if you want to give it a try, grab your phone and head to Voxofon’s website. Download the appropriate client for your phone and give it a whirl. I guarantee that you’ll reconsider how you place your phone calls after you’ve tried VOIP.
