In February we reviewed Vonage Mobile for iOS and I was pretty impressed with the service. The Android version of the app has just been updated and adds new social features as well as other performance updates.
Their international calling rates are competitive so if you do a lot of long distance calling then it may be worth looking at or if you are looking for an alternative to Skype it could be a good option.
The app is free from Google Play
UPDATE: The iOS version has been updated too, you can find that in iTunes
What’s in this version:
- Now share photos or your location, directly from the app.
- See the per-minute calling rates for anyone in your address book. Now you don’t have to lookup the rate.
- In-app option to share Vonage Mobile with others on Facebook and Twitter.
- Remaining credit shown above Address Book.
- Additional Updates:
- Performance enhancements and general bug fixes
- Coming soon:
- App support for hands-free calling with Bluetooth™ compatible phones.
