We have brought Localphone to a wider audience and now it is a truly global app.
Sheffield, United Kingdom (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
Localphone’s new Android app is free to download from Google play. Previous versions of the Android app used its Local Numbers service to make international calls. Localphone customers in countries where they can’t call with Local Numbers such as India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, are now able to download the free app and make calls to anywhere in the world.
Calls will be made using the user’s Internet connection. The app will use WiFi or 3G depending on the user’s settings. All the user will pay to call is Localphone’s low rates, which start from just 0.5¢ per minute.
As well as making the Android app available to all its customers worldwide, Localphone has also added a new ‘Share’ functionality into the app. This allows customers to recommend Localphone to their friends straight from the app via email, SMS and social networks. Customers then receive free bonus credit for each friend they referred who signs up and adds credit with Localphone.
The CEO and founder of Localphone, Paul Cusack, commented, ‘We have brought Localphone to a wider audience and now it is a truly global app. We are continually developing our apps and adding new features so I look forward to announcing these in the near future.’
