Paltalk, a provider of software and technology for real-time, rich media, interactive social networking, released its Vumber (News - Alert) Mobile application, which iOS device users can add mobile lines and make cheaper calls via a WiFi network without having to waste their plan minutes.
According to the company, a Vumber is a virtual phone number – now users can have several numbers on a single phone. With Vumber, they can choose any area code they want and link it to their home, cell, or work phone. When someone calls their Vumber, it will ring on their phone without ever revealing their private phone number and users control how to handle the call.
The new Vumber App enables users to place calls over WiFi from their iPhone (News - Alert), iPod Touch and iPad, to anywhere in the world, for only $9.95 per month through Vumber. The app can be downloaded from the iTunes store and the company is planning to release the Android (News - Alert) version of this Vumber mobile app by the end of the first quarter of this year.
Paltalk asserted that the way of being tethered to one's home or office phone line and being forever associated with a single phone number are long gone. Consumers are more mobile than ever and their ability to access and share information has never been more rapid. As the convergence between telecommunications and wireless technology continues to play out, Paltalk (News - Alert) is poised to provide its users with the tools that are needed to stay connected in the most effortless, economical and convenient fashion.
With Vumber mobile app consumers now have the freedom to make phone calls anytime, anywhere both national and international, from a variety of mobile devices as long as there is a WiFi (News - Alert) connection, for a fraction of a cost. Vumber is supposedly the only app that lets users make and receive calls from multiple numbers directly from the iPhone app.
The Vumber Mobile app will continue to add functionality designed to provide users with a complete mobile communications experience via WiFi networks. The company claimed that the app will be soon integrated with SMS functionality using which users can send text messages from any of the virtual numbers stored in their app.
