Viber – Free iPhone VoIP Application

Posted In iPad Applications, iPhone, iPhone Applications, iPod Touch Applications - By admin On Sunday, December 5th, 2010 With 10 Comments

Viber – the Free iPhone VoIP app without the hassle of registration or sign up. You install the app, run and authenticate your phone with a pin code (authenticated via SMS) and start making FREE calls, simple as that. More exciting than this it that it doesn’t require the app to be running all the time, even in the background. Sounds too good to be true? Brace yourself for the exciting ride! This is something Skype has been lacking all along. You’ll have to have Skype running and signed in to be able to make or receive calls.

With Viber, a logo appears next to your contacts so you know exactly who to call in Viber. I personally don’t think it could be any simpler than this. The call quality seems to be very good, a lot of people are claiming it to be better than Skype. But I guess, that’ll depend on your data connection (WiF/3G) and speed.

But be careful before you get too excited and start using it aggressively over 3G because it is a VoIP app and it uses your data. So always keep an eye on your usage. Check out the video below and let us know your experience with Viber.

    Does it work off wifi as well as your phone data?

    Yes, it does work on both Wifi and 3G.

    I have tried to download Viber several times to my iphone4 but it is asking for my bank details on my account so it can take a payment so there is no way I am giving them access to this information, I thought it was a free app, how nieve of me to think apple would let you get anything for free. No stars.

      Do you mean iTunes account? Because Viber is a Free app. If you’re referring to iTunes account then yes you’ll need to provide payment details to open an account however you won’t be charged for downloading any Free apps.

    Hi,
    This is an official Viber Media representative.

    As admin said, you were asked for your bank details through iTunes, and not because of Viber.

    Viber is a COMPLETELY free service, as long as you are connected to the internet through your iPhone. Of course, we are not responsible for the prices that your cellular companies charge you for using 3G. How can we be? These are private plans/contracts that you, as a private subscriber, sign with your cellular provider. Be sure – none of the money you pay for your 3G internet with Viber goes to our profits. Absolutely none.

    So why is Viber free?
    For now, Viber’s focus is on adding platforms, adding features (such as text messages) and improving overall system performance. At the same time, we are working on additional future premium services that will generate revenues. The basic Viber service – Viber to Viber phone calls, and soon text messages, will always be free.

    If you have further questions, don’t hesitate to ask.

    Cheers,
    Viber.

    Thanks to voip apps i am using my iPad lot more than i even thought. I am using Freephoo, a free voip app to make calls. I just love this experience as calls are clear, smooth, no call drops and connectivity is top class with WiFi+3G. In case you are worried about the call rates… no worries as all calls to users are free.

    my son and his friends are currently in Phuket and are caught up in the Tsunami warning – when I could not contact them through regular mobile telephone connections- Viber was able to get me through, thanks for the the program and the ability to succeed when the Big Folks cannot.
