Make WiFi calls on our new Android app

Monday, April 30th, 2012

We are delighted to announce that we have launched a new version of our Android app, which is available to download for free from Google play. Download our Android app today.

The new app includes a choice of calling modes allowing you to choose between Local Number calls or WiFi/3G calls, saving you even more money on international calls! Using the LOCAL calls mode means your calls will be made using a local number which connects to your international contact. You’ll pay our low rates plus your mobile provider’s local rates. These are usually included in your free minutes.
Tap the call mode button to switch to WiFi/3G mode and calls will be made using your Internet connection. You’ll save money by using this mode because all you’ll pay is our low call rate and there are no local charges.

Features of our Android app:

Two calling modes so it works wherever you are – NEW
Call abroad using a local number or your WiFi/3G connection. Just tap the calling mode button to switch between the two.

Keep in touch by SMS
Send international texts to any number at our low rates.

Your contacts on the go
Manage your Localphone contacts through your phone and import your existing numbers.

Rates at your fingertips

Check call and text rates to any number or country.

Stay in credit
Your real-time account balance is displayed in the app so you know exactly how much credit you have.

Make sure you download the Localphone Android app and remember to leave us a review in the Google play store. The app is currently available for customers in countries where we have access numbers. Visit our help section to find out if it is available in your country. We are working on making the app available in more countries and look forward to announcing updates in the future.
