Truphone has announced the availability of its mobile VoIP application, Truphone (News - Alert) 3.0, for Apple’s iPod Touch.
Launched earlier on Apple iPhone, the Truphone mobile VoIP application is an all-in-one product architecture that puts voice and instant messaging (IM) in one place leveraging VoIP technology.
It offers an integrated messaging tool that unifies all IM (instant messaging) communities in a single place. It enables users to make free calls when in Wi-Fi to other Truphone users as well as Skype and Google (News - Alert) Talk users. In addition, Truphone users can send free Instant Messages when in Wi-Fi to different IM services as well.
With the help of Truphone mobile VoIP application, users can call landlines and mobiles anywhere at cheap rates, thereby making considerable savings. The application also shows call rates before initiating a call. It even displays recent call history and also enables users to change calling tariffs within the application itself. Customers/users can top-up from within the application, without the need for web windows to open separately, said the company.
Truphone said that the new upgrade, version 3.0, available on iPod Touch features a new architecture that provides increased ease of use, speed of function response, intuitiveness, enhanced instant messaging and account management experience, simplified management, improved voice quality, as well as performance boost.
Featuring integrated messaging tool, the mobile VoIP application unifies all IM communities in a single place, thereby facilitating users to manage all their IM communication from a single page within the application. This eliminates the need to constantly jockey between different applications or even different pages within an application, said the company.
Currently, Truphone 3.0 supports various IM services such as Skype, MSN Messenger, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk.
“Following the successful launch of Truphone 3.0 for the iPhone (News - Alert) we were keen to follow-up as quickly as possible for all our iPod touch customers,” said Geraldine Wilson, CEO Truphone, in a release. “That’s what we’ve done to ensure that they can take advantage of all our new improvements: improved UI, account management and call quality. We believe Truphone 3.0 sets a new benchmark in terms of quality and performance. With these improvements, we believe Truphone 3.0 is the best application to turn your iPod touch into a Wi-Fi phone and staying in touch with all of your IM communities.”
