STOCKHOLM, May 26, 2011 -
Sweden based company freephoo recently launched a free iPad application
(www.freephoo.com/appstore.php) on the Swedish App Store. After
downloading freephoo, the customer can make calls for free to other freephoo
users and low priced calls to both fixed and mobile phones. The iPad has no
native support for telephony, but with freephoo all iPad users can finally
use their iPads as a phone together with their current mobile number.
Freephoo uses the fast growing technology; mobile VoIP.
Freephoo's vision is that communication between people shall be shaped by
true customer needs. The mission is to create and offer communication
services that are truly devoted to the customers instead of geographical
borders and network limitations.
Freephoo launched in the Swedish market in April and shortly after the
Swedish launch, freephoo was appointed App of the day by MacWorld and became
Nr 1 on Grossing Social Networking and nr 11 Top free Apps for iPad. Freephoo
was also appointed What's hot and New and Noteworthy on App Store.
"iPad is an amazing product but we lacked the ability to make and receive
calls. Some see this as a major limitation so we are proud to be able to
solve this in a favourable way for all iPad users", says Pandelis Eliopoulos,
CEO at freephoo.
Freephoo will soon launch in new markets and the Nordic countries
Finland, Norway and Denmark are the first markets to be launched.
Freephoo is really easy to get started with. You don't need to select a
username or add a person to a list before calling them. You use your own
mobile phone number when calling and the same will be shown at the receivers
end. You will also automatically see which of your friends are on freephoo so
you know when you can call them for free.
Freephoo is one of the first services on App Store that enables the user
to purchase premium minutes through Apples own payment system (
In-App-Purchase). It gives the user the possibility to make low cost calls to
billions of mobile and fixed phones in a great range of countries.
"Our application is a unique hybrid. It combines the best of mobile VoIP
with the possibility to call traditional numbers to unique rates. This gives
our users the ability to call all freephoo users for free and to billions of
mobile and fixed phones at exceptional rates." says Pandelis Eliopoulos.
Freephoo was founded 2008 by entrepreneurs from the telecom and Internet
industry. Freephoo uses innovative technology to offer new ways of
communication through online devices.
