HOUSTON, Sept. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- A review of the best, must-have free apps for communicating in Windows 8 by TechNewsWorld has placed Voxofon at the top of the list.

In the review, "All Things Appy: 5 Best Communication Apps for Windows 8," TechNewsWorld ranks Voxofon number 1 and gives it a 4-star rating.
"Voxofon's Voice-over-Internet-Protocol app lets you text and call. It works by placing the call for you and then ringing your phone to complete the call," said the review. It went on to point out Voxofon's inexpensive rates, "…great prices at 2.6 US cents for voice and 0.9 cents for texts in the U.S. and lower-than Google Voice rates for many overseas cellphones."
Customer enthusiasm about Voxofon's affordability and flexibility are fueling top-line and bottom-line growth.
