    Make WiFi calls on our new iPhone app

    Wednesday, January 11th, 2012

    We’re pleased to announce we’ve launched our new iPhone app, which is available to download for free from iTunes. Download our iPhone app today.

    The new app has a number of new features including two modes of calling, which allows you to choose between WiFi/3G calls or local 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. The app will use WiFi when available and will switch to 3G when you are out of range.

    Our share functionality is another new feature we have added. You’ll get your referral bonus when you tell your friends about the app via email, SMS and social networks. You can also view your call and text history in the app as well as accessing our help centre and finding answers to frequently asked questions.

    Make sure you download the Localphone iPhone app and remember to leave us a review in the App 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.
