indoona – Free Internet calling, but Not Skype
I like Skype, I really do, but for some reason it seems every time I go to use it I have some small problem with it. Recently I was trying to call my mom (I really needed to call my mom) and it would ring once and then end the call before anyone picked up. Now I tried to explain that to my mother… but I’m not sure she was buying it. So now I find out about a new free calling service, one that seems a bit more user friendly, and a bit more integrated with today’s Smartphone usage.
Welcome indoona, a new free calling service that lets you message, video chat and voice call other indoona users all over the world, all for free, using your wifi or 3g connections. indoona actually imports your phone book and even automatically lets you know which people on your list are online and able to participate in free calling all in real time.
Simply download the application from the app store and register by entering your mobile phone number. Shortly thereafter you will receive a special code in an instant message and after entering it, you’re ready to go. indoona even allows you to send messages to your contact list via Facebook and Twitter, inviting them to join indoona with you.
The application itself is free for iPhone (Ipod Touch, Ipad 2), Android, PC and Mac, and with premium services indoona will allow you to call the landlines and mobile phones of non-indoona users at very low rates or you can subscribe to a “follow you anywhere” indoona phone number.
