textPlus Debuts GlobePhone App

textPlus recently released its newest app, GlobePhone: International Calling by textPlus, for inexpensive international calling. The GlobePhone app makes life easier and less expensive for users--freeing them from relying on calling cards or special plans to place international calls. Inexpensive international rates make GlobePhone perfect for anyone in the US with family and friends outside the country, as well as those traveling internationally or with business abroad. The app permits users to make calls to more than 200 countries, starting at the low cost of $0.02 per minute with no hidden fees, additional connection cost or contracts. Simple, straightforward and affordable rates result in major savings for users: a 100 minute call from the US to a landline in Mexico costs $2.20 USD using GlobePhone, compared to approximately $100.00 USD on most major US carriers. By using readily available WiFi, app users can experience HD quality calls while traveling abroad and can avoid rampant roaming charges and dropped calls from bad connections. GlobePhone also works over 3G/4G. GlobePhone can be used anywhere in the world and provides users a free phone number capable of calling any international number for just pennies. Because the service is available over WiFi, GlobePhone by textPlus offers the opportunity to untether from carrier and embrace the All WiFi way of life (of course, GlobePhone also works well over 3G/4G). GlobePhone is available worldwide for iPhone and iPod touch.
