[prMac.com] Calgary, Canada – Independent developer, Richard Aberefa today is thrilled to announce the official release of Cardup 1.1 for iPhone. Cardup enables anyone to call their family or friends located anywhere in the world for a low price. The app provides a way to avoid the expensive call rates to reach people overseas, offering the cheapest rates anywhere to make calls.
Cardup provides an alternative to even modern technological communications such as VoIP systems, which require both calling parties to have the same application in place. It is also cheaper than using phone cards, with often exorbitant call rates, and expensive landline calls.
Phone calls made with Cardup cost two cents per minute for most places, but for calls to the United States, Canada, China, and India, app users spend half a cent per minute on each call. The costs are covered by the company through advertising, so users will be shown ads before they make calls, but spend much less on the calls they need to make. They can also try recommended free apps to get free coins for placing calls, adding to the incentives of the program.
Users can call one destination at a single number specified. The app also supports conference calls consisting of all destination numbers entered into the program. Callback numbers let users place calls for other people. One can actually let a friend call a colleague located in a foreign country, for example, and be connected to the destination number the original user enters.
A new version (1.2) is due for release in 2 weeks which comes packed with social features like messaging, nearby people, following, activity feed and more.
