Powerful functionality, simple interface, modern design
Non-intuitive interface, internet connection required, lags a bit
Vonage Mobile® Call Video Text for Android is a multifunction communication tool that can be used to keep in touch with friends, colleagues and loved ones in a variety of ways. Make calls, send texts and communicate via video chat.
Vonage Mobile® Call Video Text displays in portrait and works with tablets and cell phones. Yup, you can make free calls, send texts and video chats, so long as the person on the other end is also using this app. The cool thing, is all this connectivity works across platforms, so if you have friends with iPhones you can still share free calls, texts and video chats, so long as everyone is using this app. If not, then you can still call any landline or cell number, but standard rates will apply. Yes, you can even make international calls. The rates are reasonable and you can earn up to 10 bucks in free calls just by inviting friends; anyone who installs the app earns you a $1 credit.
The app functions nicely throughout, making use of your contacts list and placing them under the headings All, Free, and Invite for easy access and identification. There's a short menu along the top of your screen with icons for Profile, History, Dial Pad, Chats, and My Account, which is where you can check your current balance and add money to your account. Calls are made via WiFi and through cell towers, depending on the circumstance; basically, it's always WiFi unless no connection is available, so use your WiFi only tablets wisely.
Vonage Mobile® Call Video Text is a quality connectivity app with a lot to offer. Sure, most of us have unlimited minutes with our calling plan, but there are still instances where an app like this is helpful.
