MyNetFone releases mobile VOIP apps for iOS, Android

Australian-listed, voice and data communications services provider, MyNetFone (ASX:MNF) has launched new Mobile VOIP applications for both iOS and Android.

The apps are free to download from iTunes and Google Play and allow customers on MyNetFone¹s residential VoIP plans to make and receive low cost phone calls from their mobile device via Wi-Fi, 3G or LTE (4G).

MyNetFone Group, CEO, Rene Sugo, said that with Australians living an increasingly mobile lifestyle, demand was growing for Voice over IP (Internet Protocol) services on smartphones and tablets with its more cost effective calling rates.  

“With support for Australia¹s two most popular mobile operating systems, iOS and Android, our customers can easily take their residential VoIP service with them wherever they go. Not only can they enjoy the cost benefits of our competitive call plans outside their home, they will also never miss a call again when they’re out and about if they wish to divert calls from their home MyNetFone service to their Mobile App.”

Sugo said customers could also divert calls from a MyNetFone home phone number to the MyNetFone Mobile VoIP app. “As the diversion is channelled through MyNetFone¹s own network, it is completely free of charge. Customers have the option to let the home phone and Mobile VoIP app ring sequentially or concurrently, with all settings fully customisable via the MyNetFone Online Portal.”

MyNetFone’s Mobile VoIP Apps ŒVersion 1.2 replaces previous versions and has been completely redeveloped.

Sugo says the most significant new feature of the updated apps is the ability to receive incoming calls while the app is running in the background, which was developed in response to customer feedback, along with other new features including Caller ID, voicemail access and blind transfer of calls.

This is what MyNetFone says about the two new apps:

•    MyNetFone Mobile VoIP for iOS

As a SIP client for iOS, the MyNetFone app runs on iPhone, iPad and iPod. The new app introduces a fresh look for the dial pad, allows users to make and receive VoIP calls with multitask support (when the app is running in background), and integrates with existing contacts from the phone. Plus, another handy feature is conversation recording- no need to rummage for a pen and paper, just record all or part of the phone conversation and play back later.

•    MyNetFone Mobile VoIP for Android

The SIP softphone works on mobile phones based on Android operating system versions 2.3 and higher. The app enables users to make and receive VoIP calls, integrates with contacts in the Android phone book and supports call transfer, allowing users to answer a call and then transfer it to another number.
