iCall for the iPhone, VoIP coming soon officially

image One of the most anticipated applications for the iPhone for me is a Vo-IP application which would allow me to make calls using WiFi. Well the good news is iCall for the iPhone is coming and it will be available officially from the iTunes App Store. It is also rumoured to become available through usave broadband and phone deals. Not only will you be able to make calls over WiFi but also seamlessly transfer a mobile call over to VoiP which could save you a lot of minutes each month. It’s already working and you can check out the video after the break to see it in action and check out their FAQ’s

    1. Make and receive calls over WiFi
    2. Transfer inbound calls from a regular cell call to WiFi instantly and seamlessly – save your expensive minutes
    3. Access your same address book
    4. Customize your voicemail options

Frequently Asked Questions

We are being absolutely inundated and overwhelmed with e-mails, so here are the answers to the most common questions we’ve received:

    1. We are part of the Apple iPhone developer program. This is not an application for you naughty jail breakers 😉
    2. We are not using any undocumented API calls. We are following every rule that developers must follow.
    3. No, you can not have a copy. We are not physically capable of distributing the application to any phones except our development phones. If Steve-ness himself wanted a copy we could not provide it to him. Sorry.
    4. Apple has explicitly stated that VoIP is allowed, just not over Edge networks. Steve himself answered this question in the Q&A session after the last keynote speech.
    5. We are huge Apple fans and plan to release a version of iCall for OS X, but we don’t have enough developers. (see question 6).
    6. Yes we are hiring. Please visit our jobs page. We’ll even pay for you to move to Greenwich, CT.
