ICall = Skype Killer?
I recently heard about Icall, (link to the left), and reviewing it's specs, and offering, it seems to be in the perfect position as a "Skype Killer". Free outbound to anywhere calls, free incoming calls (to a number that they provide you for free!), as well as FREE voicemail!. All these services are charged services under Skype* (*free outbound calls until the end of this year). I haven't used the software extensively, but I can say some things so far, there is no spyware, bloatware, malware, it's all clear and the install is quick and extremely basic (that's a good thing). I'm not to happy that there is no MAC version available atm, but it's relatively new, so I'll give them that. The sounds are horrible, they sound like someone recorded them inside a paper cup, best described as "foggy". I had several problems logging in at late times, just receiving an error that says "There was an error logging in…" uhhh no shit…you don't say? Going to their website and logging into my account, I noticed that they are positioned to offer paid services, when the link to "Extra Services" is clicked, you get this message: " In a few weeks, you'll be able to order dirt cheap incoming numbers! Watch this page for updates." Ok cool. Your originally provided with one, so I personally wouldn't buy another, but that's just me. You have the ability to see all your received/missed calls, just like Vonage, and lastly for now, they are giving away a free Ipod a day, gee thats original. You basically refer a friend, and once you have 5 referrals, your entered into a "once a day" everday (for who knows how long) Ipod drawing plus $100, kewl. I'll give away the Ipod, since I already have a few, and since it doesn't specify what type of ipod (it could be an old fat ugly one for all we know) although they do show a picture of an Ipod nano, but we all know that pictures on the net are not to be taken as legitimate lol. I'll keep the hundred bucks and buy banana frappacinos for my whole office, those damn things are addicting. I'll have a full app review on Icall, as soon as Iv'e played with it enough. Stay tuned
