[prMac.com] San Jose, California – Dingtone has been added to the prestigious list of VoIP apps (including Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp) that now get CallKit integration for iOS 10. VoIP apps like Dingtone make it easy to place cheap, even free calls via internet protocols rather than conventional cell signals. CallKit support for the Dingtone app now raises Dingtone’s already great calling experience to a whole new level.
With CallKit integration, users can make and receive Dingtone calls just as they would conventional cellular calls-even while on the lock screen. Users can also store their Dingtone contacts on the native Contact app so there’s no need to open Dingtone first to initiate a Dingtone call.
1. Answer VoIP calls just like regular phone calls…even on the lock screen:
Ever missed an important call because you couldn’t get to your VoIP app fast enough? Dingtone’s new update (including the CallKit feature) serves as a perfect solution to this problem. With CallKit integration for iOS 10, incoming calls to a Dingtone phone number now appear as regular phone calls on the home and lock screen. This means that they are fully displayed in the native iPhone UI, not just identified with push notifications as they were before. In addition, there is no need to unlock the phone or launch the Dingtone app. All you have to do is slide to answer the call.
2. View and manage VoIP contacts using the Favorites and Recents tab:
Not only is answering an incoming call easier, contact list integration is easier as well. CallKit allows Dingtone users to easily start a Dingtone call from the Contact list without opening Dingtone first. Dingtone calls will also appear in the built-in Favorites and Recents tabs just as if they were a part of iOS. What’s more, you can also use the built-in Do Not Disturb and Block feature with Dingtone contacts for a more enhanced calling experience.
3. Dingtone phone numbers now work just like regular phone numbers:
When equipped with the iOS 10 CallKit feature, Dingtone VoIP phone numbers work just like phone numbers from traditional carriers…but without the extra SIM card and pesky monthly fees. Neither are necessary.
To further set it apart from most VoIP apps that only offer calling and texting services, Dingtone provides millions of real phone numbers from numerous countries including the United States, United Kingdom, and Canada. Users can easily pick their own phone number from almost any area code they want. Moreover, Dingtone phone numbers can even be ported out to mobile phone operators such as AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-mobile. As an added bonus, Dingtone phone numbers are equipped with a package of features like caller ID, call block, call forward, voicemail, and many more. All of this for extremely low prices (or even free!).
