Announcing the all new Android App

Monday, December 12th, 2011

Localphone are very excited to announce the launch of the their brand new Android app.

If you are using a phone running Android, like the Nexus One, the HTC Hero, the Samsung Galaxy, to name but a few, this new flexible app lets you make very cheap international calls and texts to over 250 countries worldwide, with the added bonus of updating contacts and checking credit via your smartphone. The app uses the phone’s own dialer to make local calls that connect internationally, which means it won’t use up a customers data allowance.

“Android’s share in some of our key markets has sky-rocketed, with surveys indicating more than 40% of new smartphone sales in the UK and US going to Google’s mobile OS,” said Paul Cusack, Localphone’s founder and CEO. “Our customers have been crying out for an Android app so we are pleased to announce this new addition to our mobile lineup, and look forward to expanding to further platforms in the New Year.”

With call rates as low as 0.5¢ USD per minute, Localphone offer a very simple pay-as-you-go service, and with no hidden contracts or charges these rates look to be some of the cheapest on the market.

Sound good? Then all you need to do is create an online account at Localphone, and get started with a bonus free 5 minute call. Afterwards, you just add credit with the minimum top up being $1/£1/€1 or you can add as much or as little as you need with a variety of payment methods.. The credit doesn’t run out, you simply top up whenever you want to.
