MagicJack: App for Making Free Wi-Fi Phone Calls on Your iPhone, iPad

MagicJack app doesn’t use your mobile minutes, does not require a voice plan, and allows you to make FREE calls to US and Canadian phone numbers or to any MagicJack number wherever it may be in the world.

I’m sure many of you have seen the MagicJack on TV by now, it’s the portable little black box that has allowed users to ditch home landlines in the US and Canada for some time now.

Well, now the people behind that device have created an app for the iPhone and iPad that also allows users to ditch, or at least avoid, expensive mobile minutes and voice plan packages.

MagicJack allows users to make FREE calls to US and Canadian phone numbers, or to any assigned MagicJack number in the world. Think of it as a free alternative to Skype, the service that requires users to buy credits to make calls to non-Skype numbers.

 

MagicJack does not use your mobile minutes nor does it require a voice plan of any kind. All you really need is a Wi-Fi or data connection.

An added benefit is the quality of calls and network coverage. Instead of worrying whether or not you’re in a dropped call zone or out of network reach all you really need to have is a solid Wi-Fi connection.

For those AT&T subscribers in cities notorious for dropped calls like New York City MagicJack is a welcome solution to the problem.

“I am incredibly proud of the many employees involved in building our first APP,” says Dan Borislow, CEO of magicJack. “I am obviously biased in saying this, but I can’t see any reason that by offering the best voice quality, free calls, ease of use, ability to use your existing contacts and free download, that we will not have tens of millions of downloads over the next year. Apple has the best OS and devices built for voice and I believe we have the best telephone network and software engineers to take advantage of this incredible platform.”

Users with an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad will be able to use the MagicJack app when connected to W-Fi or 4G with the same functionality of a regular mobile phone with better call quality, but without the costs for calls.

The MagicJack app is particuallry useful when at home or in the office for there’s no need to worry about call quality, being dropped, and better still – it’s free!

Stay tuned.

I've been interested in P2P since the early, high-flying days of Napster and KaZaA. I believe that analog copyright laws are ill-suited to the digital age, and that art and culture shouldn't be subject to the whims of international entertainment industry conglomerates. Twitter | Google Plus

I recently downloaded the Magicjack app on my new android phone and it seems to be working just fine, however, I have a question.

How can I create a New Phone Number for people to phone me back?

I've had the magicjack on my PC for 3 plus years and it works well, although when we are downloading a Netflix movie and someone else is doing something data heavy the quality lags behind. I recently installed the app on my IPAD and it works better on it than even the regular phone. This week they finally allowed us PC longtime users to transfer our credits to the wall unit, so we will see how that works out.

I like the free app but even $30 a year beats the others out there, i pay that a month! The $30 subscription is nice because it gets you a regular phone number too

I have been taking advantage of the free app recently. I had bought the usb Magic Jack 2 years ago and is now requiring me to renew the subscription for $30 a year.  No thanks, i'll just use the free app to make free phone calls.

we have two magic jacks and use them both. We've been using the magicjack for over 2 years and use it instead of a regular local landline telephone.

Now you get your own local area code! RalphR RalphSpoilsport + creditcard settings. They have a painful texting chat for support. But it works and you will get your issues resolved if patient and competent at actually doing something about it. Anyway I came looking for Android App. Then I’d consider my own and not just a gift for parents away in Mexico during the winter. Also the Quality is a measure of your connection not MJs infrastructure.

luv the magicJack. First as a PC user (purchased the little box) - now on my iPod touch and iPad2. Nothing bad to say. I often travel to asia and calls to canada always work. I tell all my friends about it.

Stay away from magic jack. Their call quality is bad and you may not be able to use it for local calls as in my case. I had to get a new credit card issued because they kept renewing the yearly contract no matter what the settings were on my account page. I feel they are too shady an outfit to deal with and it could end up costing you.

I've tried MagicJack but I haven't found the quality to be as good as what I've found with other video chat programs. Even the Facebook app Rounds has better quality, and that's more for entertainment purposes.

Until they offer Joe Average a means of calling you (i.e. a phone number) they will never be a contender.
