iPhone/iPod App Review – ForFone

REQUIREMENTS: Compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later

We have all a friend or two that likes to travel overseas and while they are gone, we have no communication with them unless it’s on Facebook! Well I like to text and call my friends but that option isn’t there while they are overseas. Well, with this app, there is that option! ForFone is a European based company that has developed this app that combines all the cool features of Skype, Viber, and WhatsApp.

With ForFone, you can call, text, and send photo messages to people all around the world FOR FREE! Have your friends download the app before they hop on a plane and head overseas and while they are there, you can call and text them all you want! You can also use the app with non-users of the app for only 1.9 cents a minute! Another cool feature is you are not charged roaming fees if you use WiFi!

The app is free to download and to buy credits, they cost $5.99 (US) or $11.99 (US). Now you may be wondering, “Does it only work for incoming or does it work for outgoing while abroad?” and here is a little info from ForFone themselves.
