Review

How many times has it happened to you that you want to make an international call to US but you’re worried about the tariff? Well, it’s good for you to know that you’re not the only one out there. In fact, now with the world so socialized and connected over social media platforms, almost everybody has a friend or two who’re living outside his/her country’s borders. And with US being one of the most developed nations and an education hub, the influx of students and workers from outside is quite heavy. So if you have a friend of yours waiting for your call in US or it’s one of your clients on the other side, don’t let them down anymore. Now you can talk to them just like any other local would. Certainly I’m not talking about getting you a US Visa; but what is it then!

Well, it’s the latest iOS app called iPlum that I’m talking about here. It has been developed by iPlum and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 7.0 or any later version of the OS.

iPlum simply assigns your device a US number and that as well of your choice and believe me, it’s done as simply as I’ve said that. Just sign up and you have a real US number with a True Caller ID. So you’d be as genuine as anybody else. This number will work like any other number in the phone directory of US. The voice quality is amazing and you’d never feel talking across thousands of miles. Now, you must be worried about the calling charges, aren’t you?

Then let me put an end to your stress because with this app, calling on a US number from anywhere outside costs you just 1cent/minute. Add to it a monthly rental of $1 and that’s all. You don’t need to watch any advertisements; neither do you need to ask the other party to install the same app to connect. Apart from calling, you can also send SMS to US numbers at the same price i.e. 1cent/SMS. It’s a day-light robbery guys; and the store-owner is happy to let you go!

In case the app is installed on both sides, then you don’t need to spend even the cheapest. The in-app calling and messaging services including group messaging, files, photo and video transfer facilities make sure you’re always in touch with your friends and clients without spending a penny from your pocket. Secured with AES-256 data encryption and PKI Cryptography, your data is never leaked to anyone.

The app helps you keep your professional life separate from your personal one. The call logs and messages you share in this app are all kept stacked neatly within the app’s boundaries. So no matter how many clients you’re talking to, if you have missed a call from your wife, you won’t miss it.

Overall, I’d say that iPlum has created a plan for you that you can’t find an alternative to. So just take it right now. The app is available for free in the App Store.

Pros: in-app calling and messaging; 1cent/minute US calling; local US number of your choice with True Caller ID; secured messaging; free.

Cons: none.
