VoX communications has released a mobile VoIP app to the Android Market. Being there is a monthly charge for this app, I would expect nothing less than for it to function flawlessly for calls. The plans start at $4.95 per month which charges you $0.05 per minute. There is also a 500 minute plan at $9.95 and unlimited calling for $29.95. I’m not sure this is anything to get jazzed up about since there are apps like GrooVe IP that work directly with Google Voice’s servers and let you make data calls for free. The app itself is very well done and snappy, but I didn’t notice anywhere to try it out for free and test its call quality. I think if they really want this to take off they’ll need to implement some sort of trial period. Hit up the break to check out VoX Mobile’s feature list followed by the full press release and market links.

FREE CALLS AND TEXTS AVAILABLE TO OTHER CUSTOMERS FOR AS LITTLE AS $4.95 A MONTH, TARGETING 100 MILLION GLOBAL ANDROID PHONES ON 3G, 4G OR WI-FI
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Oct. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — Pervasip’s wholly owned subsidiary, VoX Communications, a leading provider of wholesale Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services and cloud based computing, has announced that it has launched a mobile VoIP app for use on all Android mobile phones and Android tablets.
Pervasip’s Chief Information Officer, Mark Richards, noted, “We are very excited about delivering a mobile VoIP app via Google’s incredibly popular Android Market. We believe that this venue will give us significant exposure, as this app will be available to over 100 million Android smart phones globally and provide unlimited calls and text to other VoX users globally for as little as$4.95 a month.”
A VoX subscriber can subscribe entirely on the phone and choose a U.S. phone number without leaving the interface, which makes the sign up process more elegant than many competitors. The mobile VoIP plans start at $4.95, which is a low cost of entry for a high quality and reliable VoIP service offering. VoX also offers 500 minutes for $9.95, and $29.95 for unlimited calling to the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
Richards continued, “The application is very sophisticated and has some interesting features that give us an advantage over other VoIP apps. For instance, VoX becomes available in the phone’s primary dialer with a single touch and you do not have to sign in every time, as the Skype app requires. With our app you can also set it to automatically register with VoX when Wi-Fi is turned on, or keep it registered for 3G, 4G and Wi-Fi. We believe that we can add video calling to this product by the end of the year. This enhancement will enable video calling between an Android phone and an Ojo Vision video phone. As a nimble development technology company, we intend to produce a tablet video app that brings superior video calling to the Android Market.”
“We have the ability to easily update plans offered, and we intend to be creative with target audiences that are looking for fixed blocks of calls for a fixed dollar amount rather than charging a monthly fee for services that people don’t always use. This new interface enables us to tailor the plans offered so that we could even offer a $1 plan that only depletes a consumer’s cash balance when calls are made. We intend to offer similar creative calling plans to those offered recently by Vonage and also intend to offer them at competitive prices,” added Richards.
