Vonage Looks To Challenge Skype With New App For Android And iOS

It’s been quite some time since I heard anyone mention the name Vonage but it appears they are still alive and kicking. They’re looking to steal some of Skype’s mobile business by offering a new VOIP app for both Android and iOS that claims to offer international calling at 30% less the cost of Skype. Of course the biggest draw is the free app-to-app calling and texting as well as free calls to any Vonage number. Full features of the Vonage Mobile app include:

  • Make FREE high-def calls and send FREE texts to anyone who has the app.
  • Save on international calling to anyone who has not yet downloaded the app with per-minute rates on average 70 percent less than major mobile carriers and 30 percent less than Skype™².
  • Use your existing address book; no need to leave the app.
  • Never miss a call or text, even when the app is closed.
  • Easily invite multiple people right from your address book.
  • Works on Wi-Fi and 3G/4G worldwide.
  • Uses your mobile number as your caller ID.
  • Easy in-app purchasing through your iTunes or Android Market account.
  • Plus FREE calling to any Vonage home phone customer.

You do not have to be a Vonage phone service customer to use the app and it’s available now in both the Android Market and App Store. To try out the Vonage Mobile app simply download it from the appropriate link below.
