STOCKHOLM, May 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Sweden based company freephoo recently launched a free iPad application (http://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.
