While most people communicate via social media these days, there are many who still need to make a phone call. Most business is carried out this way, as is contact with friends and family. Sometimes the calls are local, sometimes they are across the country, and at times, with our world growing smaller and smaller, the calls span oceans to touch those in other countries.
If you are looking for a better way to make those phone calls and make them more economical, then Callbacker may be the right app for you. With the advent of VoIP, calling through an app has become an immensely widespread practice. Many people simply do not own landlines anymore; not when they can easily call and communicate using their cell. This makes having the right app essential.
In general, the biggest advantage to Callbacker is its pricing. In general, it runs about 30% cheaper than Skype. This is great for those who make international calls quite often. Countries currently supporting include the more popular ones: US, India, China, France, UK, Mexico, Brazil, Germany, Australia, Philippines, and a few more. If you have a country that’s not supported, you can always suggest it to the developers – high levels of interest will help get that country added to the list.
If you make calls to fellow Callbacker users, those calls will be free. So, getting friends and family, anywhere in the world, to use this app can provide even greater savings. Callbacker also supports free texting and conferencing with all Callbacker users.
What is really neat and useful is the ability to record phone calls. Now, most of us have no need to record personal phone calls, unless these conversations are ones that you may need to reference in the future. For business users, this is a great feature. You may need to be able to show with hard evidence that conversations were conducted, in cases when you need to show proof. Callbacker supports this.
Some other interesting features include:
- Ability to make calls even when you don’t have Internet access
- Virtual Phone Number – you can buy a phone number that is local to a country so callers from that country can call you for free. This is great for business owners.
- HD-Voice codecs – high quality voice transmission
- Earn Bonuses – by filling balances for friends and through various affiliate programs, you can earn points that can be used towards paying for calls.
While the app is free, there are paid subscriptions you will need to sign up for in order to use the app to make calls that are not included for free. There is a pay-as-you-go plan or credit packages you can buy, ranging in size from XS to XL. There are also US and Mexico Unlimited plans. If you choose to buy a virtual number, there’s a monthly fee of $1.99.
In all, Callbacker is a very easy app to use. At times the connection was not as clear as I would have hoped, but I am sure that this small setback will improve with time.
Staying connected doesn’t have to be expensive and it can be more than just a call that is forgotten. Using Callbacker makes it easier to make those calls and keep them.
