HOUSTON, Dec. 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Just in time for people all over the world to reconnect with friends and loved one during the holidays, Voxofon today announced the immediate ability for users to earn call credits instead of paying for them. For the first time, Voxofon version 5.3 for iOS devices, now available through the Apple App Store, makes it possible for users to earn credits that can be used to make calls and send texts to any phone number, including landlines and feature phones.
"We are responding to the large community of Voxofon users who want free international calling and messaging – including to those who don't have the Voxofon app," said Alexey Goloshubin, CEO of Voxofon, a rapidly growing provider of over-the-top (OTT) voice and messaging services.
Voxofon users can now choose between paying for call credits or earning call credits by doing things they do every day, such as trying new mobile apps, taking surveys, watching videos, playing games and viewing ads. By giving users the option to earn call credits by interacting with high-quality content from leading brands, Voxofon is making it more simple and affordable than ever to stay connected with friends, family and work associates around the world.
"Most so-called 'free' communications apps only work between smartphone users, but many of our customers talk and text with friends and family who use landlines and feature phones," said Goloshubin. "We are very excited about providing a simple and fun way for our customers to earn free credits so they can stay connected globally at no cost."
Voxofon users who prefer to pay for call credits will still be able to do so, and users will continue to enjoy free international calls and texts with other Voxofon app users without having to use credits.
The capability to earn call credits is the result of new partnerships with leading providers of in-app brand and direct response advertising solutions. Users can earn between two and 2,000 call credits per action, depending on the type of action they select, with no limit to how many credits they can earn. Recognizing that its exceptional user experience differentiates Voxofon from other OTT communications services, Voxofon integrated these capabilities to offer users credits while ensuring the experience remains completely seamless with the Voxofon app. Call credits are almost immediately available in the user's account upon completing the action the user selects.
Along with this new capability, Voxofon continues to make user interface and experience enhancements. Voxofon version 5.3 includes new overlay screens that clearly help users learn how to use the app and other feature updates.
The free download of Voxofon version 5.3 for iOS is available at https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/voxofon-international-calls/id436145499?ls=1&mt=8. Voxofon version 5.3 for Android is expected to be available through Google Play before the end of the year.
