iOS: Free Calls from Google Voice with Talkatone


Talkatone is a free app that allows you to make FREE calls via an iOS device.  This works for iPhone, iPod and iPad.  You can also send unlimited free SMS messages.

Talkatone allows you to make calls via WiFi or 3G, and doesn’t use your cellular minutes.  The one feature that I like the most, is that you can make calls with WiFi, so even if you have no cell reception, say on an airplane, you can still make a phone call.

The application features include:

  • Compression for phone calls over 3G, or always.
  • A standard dialer, and contact page.  (this is pulled from your gmail account)
  • Ability to change your text messaging font, for some personalization.
  • Personalized wallpaper for the different functions.

Talkatone also has a premium subscription version available.  This is available for $1.99 a month, or $19.99 for a year.

The features for the premium version include:

  • Multiple gmail account support
  • Assign ringtones to contacts
  • Hide Ads

Overall, this is a fantastic app that I now have installed on all my iOS devices.  If you have Google Voice and want a better way to manage it, go download this app.
