Acrobits fulfills need for SIP apps
As more and more mobile phones have access to VoIP what we users need are more SIP apps.
One such is the Acrobits softphone app for the Apple iPhone, which is now allowing you to use 3G or WiFi networks for making VoIP calls.
The Acrobits app has some pretty sophisticated features such as the G.729A codec which gives better 3G.sound quality and ‘push notification’ which notifies you to turn on the app even if you weren’t running it when you received the call. The latter feature requires a Wi-Fi or cellular data internet connection and iPhone OS 3.0 (at a minimum). It works on other Apple products like the iPod Touch and the iPad.
Among many other features on the Acrobits app there is also integration with your iPhone contact book search function.
The app is incredibly flexible as you can easily import accounts from any of the main newtwork providers and it also offers multiple SIP account capability.
The Acrobits softphone app is available as a downloadable app with 3G capability and can be purchased through iTunes for $7.99.
So far it has had a good customer response with the ease of use being praised.
