    Hi,

    I wanted to get some feedback from the iPod Touch community on our new app - Truphone for the iPod Touch.

    The new app turns your iPod Touch into a phone, and as well as letting you make free calls to other Truphone users (and many others including Skype®, Google Talk™) it lets you make cheap international calls to mobiles and landlines, and all you need is a set of headphones and a microphone!

    You can download the app here --> http://www.truphone.com/applications/devices/ipod/

    And i'd really like to know whether this is the kind of app you would consider using, and if you already have, what's good and bad about it.

    Thanks,
    James from Truphone

    I had truphone ages ago. I never liked it. I couldn't call any VOIP service other than another person using truphone, so I wasn't very encouraged to buy credit.
    I think that there are too many VOIP clients at the moment. Skype will always be the most trustworthy for me, I've never properly used anything else.

    I'm a newb so don't blast me for being wrong if I am..... But from what I've read, most people are pretty happy with Truphone. I wanted it mainly for international calling to US lan or mobile line. It's $0.05 a minute!!!!

    That's unbelievable if you've ever made a call from outside US to the US. Does skype have that capability at that cost? If not, +1 for Truphone.

    Ughm.. how about free calling?

    Sign up for a free VOIP client (VOIPStunt, etc.)
    Download FRING (App Store)
    Enter in your VOIPStunt credentials.

    OH MY GOSH! Free phone calls.

    Truphone is very very great and I also downloaded it to my Ipod and registered a new account. But havent tried it yet on Ipod because still have no headset with microphone. But been using it at least 2 years already on my Nokia N82 weekly. But could not use same account to my Ipod though.
    Regards
