I think most of us are familiar with Vonage, the VoIP calling provider that has been around for a long time. The company has a new app for the iPhone that is interesting in that it is the first app to allow pay-per-call international dialing to more than 190 countries. The new app is called Time to Call and lets users make 15-minute calls at a lower price than the wireless carrier allows.
One of the most interesting parts is that you don’t need to get out a credit card or sign up for service, the billing is done directly through iTunes. The app is officially available as of today in the US iTunes stores for 87 different countries. Billing is completed by choosing the country you want to call, tapping buy now, and then entering iTunes password.
The price for calls ranges from 99 cents to $1.99 and some countries range in price up to $9.99. Numbers to the country can be dialed from the address book or by direct entry. Time to Call will work globally on WiFi networks and in the US and Canada it works on 3G as well.
