Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Voxofon, a universal IP-based communications technology company, is pleased to announce the fact that their Voxofon app has become the 15th top-grossing app in the Social Networking category on Apple's App Store.
A small, bootstrapped company, Voxofon's iOS app is making up ground on the apps from competitors like WhatsApp, Vonage, and Line; and has already surpassed the offerings from Tango and Fring. While the competition has big money to back them up, Voxofon is proud to be a small, independent company from Houston.
The popularity of the Voxofon software on the App Store comes directly on the heels of the iPhone 5 and iPod optimized app. In March the company rolled out updates to their iPhone and Android apps. The updates include WiFi/3G/4G connectivity, free app-to-app calling, and bring the feature set of the Voxofon platform clearly above the competition.
Features like messaging to and from non-smartphones—introduced in January—put Voxofon head-and-shoulders above the competition, with true two-way communication across the technology divide.
While other companies might have turned to looking for handouts and relocating to somewhere like Silicon Valley in the battle to innovate and expand, Voxofon has kept true to their roots and leveraged the expertise of the Houston Technology Center while staying fully independent. Despite the risky move, the company has been able to put out a superior product while operating on a shoestring budget in the American heartland.
With free or low cost local, long distance, and international calling and messaging to and from any device (feature phones or smartphones) the Voxofon software is a perfect solution for groups of friend and family worldwide. No matter what device, or which side of the technology divide the members of a group fall on, Voxofon has them covered.
The app currently holds an excellent rating (4.5 stars), and users are quick to rave about the ease of use and rich features.
Voxofon is a fast-growing OTT provider offering free and low-cost voice and messaging services to and from any device. It bridges the gap between the "new" world of smartphones and the "old" world of feature phones by leveraging its unique, IP-based communications platform, including smartphone, tablet, and web apps.
