STOCKHOLM, May 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
Swedish mobile VoIP app Freephoo changes name to Plingm and gets a new look. The new name marks the beginning of a broad international launch of the app.
Plingm is a highly rated Swedish mobile VoIP-app that allows users to make free- and low cost telephone calls from mobile devices such as smart phones, tablets and iPod Touch. Now, the app changes name, from Freephoo to Plingm.
"Plingm, short for 'Pling them', communicates what we are all about. We believe that people should be able to call loved ones anywhere in the world as often as they, without emptying their bank accounts. The name also highlights the crystal clear sound you get when making a call with Plingm," says co-founder Pandelis Eliopoulos.
Under the name Freephoo, the app has been Top 1 on App Store's social app in thirteen countries and won substantial ground in the Middle East. The company now prepares a broad international launch focusing on Eastern Asia and North America.
About the app
With an impressive consumer rating on App Store, this mobile VoIP app combines high sound quality with user-friendliness. Instead of a username, the regular cell phone number is used to call and receive calls, and only one account is needed for all your devices.
All calls made to another Plingm user are free, regardless where they are in the world and there is no time limit. Calling with this service instead of a traditional operator will save consumers large sums of money, particularly on international calls. At a low fixed rate, consumers can also call friends not yet using Plingm. This app is one of the first applications on app store that enables the user to purchase premium minutes through Apple's own payment system (In-App-Purchase).
