The Boss Revolution mobile app has received extremely positive feedback, with users praising its affordability and convenience. In addition, the app was recognized as the Best Telecommunication Mobile App of 2013 by MoviForum.
"We are thrilled with the customer response to our mobile app. While geographic distance might separate our customers from their family and friends, Boss Revolution provides products and services that keep them connected," said Ben Hirsch, IDT Telecom's Chief Marketing Officer.
"Our international calling app makes it easy and inexpensive to reach out to loved ones from anywhere, for any reason. Our mobile top up service, recently introduced into our app, is a convenient way to recharge the prepaid mobile phones of family and friends in over 200 destinations. We will continue to add features and services that help bridge the distance between our customers and the special people in their lives," Mr. Hirsch concluded.
With the app, customers simply tap an entry in their contact list to initiate a call. Anyone can get up to $2 in free international calls just for downloading the app to experience the ease of use and outstanding voice quality of Boss Revolution.
