magicJack VocalTec Unveils Free magicJack APP Delivering Free VoIP Service for Small Businesses
magicJack VocalTec (News - Alert), the company behind the creation of popular magicJack Internet phone device, announced the official launch of magicJack APP, a free application that allows users to make free calls to numbers within the U.S., Canada and to all other magicJack numbers in the world.
The free app is available for download at Apple App Store. It is compatible with Apple products including the iPad, iPhone (News - Alert), and the iPod touch essentially turning them into free mobile phones that do not use costlier mobile minutes of voice plans.
magicJack VocalTec, formerly VocalTec, recently unveiled the magicJack PLUS, an upgraded version of its popular Internet phone magicJack that continues to provide free phone service with or without a computer. The device weighs less than one ounce.
With its latest products, the company gives customers the flexibility to place a call with or without a PC or Mac computer, on a smart phone, on a tablet, without a magicJack and even via an iPod touch providing free telecom service across all of these devices, company officials said.
Customers with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad can use the app when connected to W-Fi or 4G. The service provides the same functionality of a regular mobile phone with better call quality, company officials said.
magicJackAPP also allows subscribers to use their existing magicJack number to make/receive calls or use the application for outgoing calls to landline or mobile numbers in the U.S. and Canada, and other magicJack numbers across the world for free.
"I am incredibly proud of the many employees involved in building our first APP,” said Dan Borislow, CEO of magicJack, in a statement. “I am obviously biased in saying this, but I can't see any reason that by offering the best voice quality, free calls, ease of use, ability to use your existing contacts and free download, that we will not have tens of millions of downloads over the next year.”
“Apple (News - Alert) has the best OS and devices built for voice and I believe we have the best telephone network and software engineers to take advantage of this incredible platform," Borislow further said.
magicJack VocalTec expects to deliver other devices and services connected with Wi-Fi and 4G next year, an official press release said. Considering these developments, magicJack VocalTec Issued new guidance of $2.00 - $3.00 GAAP EPS in 2012 and 20 - 30 percent revenue growth from 2011 to 2012.
