Rating: Now the app runs on Nokias as well as Android & iOS
Here at GoMo News we’re always interested to here from app developers who dare to venture outside the bounds of Infamous Duo – Apple’s iOS and Google’s Android. So we were delighted to hear from MobileVoip that the company had just signed a brand new, Symbian version of its app. Naturally, we decided to test out the Symbian app and therein lies a tale. After much messing around we discovered why we were getting this particular error message: – ‘Unable to install. Constrained by the certificate.’ We discovered the answer on Nokia’s developer forum here. The app had indeed been ‘Symbian Signed’ but it wasn’t the production version, so it would only run on a developer’s handset. Hence we had to get back in touch with MobileVoip who fixed it for us. We’re very happy to announce that we are now up and running with the Symbian version.If you’re interested in testing the Symbian version visit this page. MobileVoip will save you the job of typing in this URL http://www.mobilevoip.com/symbian/symbian to download the app by texting it to you.
MobileVoip informs us that the Symbian client is now running smoothly on the majority of Nokia handsets.
The Android and iPhone apps can be downloaded from their respective app store – Android Market and iTunes App Store, of course.
What does MobileVoip actually do/ Well the app enables VoIP users to use their regular Smartphone for calls over the 3G/WiFi/UMTS/GPRS network, and thus cut down on their regular calling charges by as much as 95 per cent.
For example, calls to India’s fixed and mobile numbers with VoipBlast are only one cent per minute.
The app supports a very long list of VoIP service providers – too numerous to print here. In many cases you can actually place calls from Android phones completely free.
One of the apps features is the ability to use your own existing contacts from within the MobileVoip app.
All we’ve got to do now is figure out who to call!
