(PRWEB) January 19, 2013

Customers love VoIP for the great improvements in mobility that their VoIP services lend them. In order to facilitate VoIP on-the-go, numerous VoIP providers now offer mobile VoIP apps for smartphones. These mobile apps allow users to send and receive calls with their VoIP accounts on their iPhones, Androids, and BlackBerries.

One major benefit of downloading a VoIP provider’s mobile VoIP app is that users connect to their VoIP plans for free calling instead of their wireless plans for inbound and outbound calls, which as a result does not eat up their cell phone minutes. Additionally, users can access their usual business call features such as three-way calling, conference calling, and call waiting with the mobile apps as well.

In response to the increased attention on mobile VoIP apps for smartphones, has released the best mobile VoIP apps on the market in 2013:

1. RingCentral

RingCentral offers a mobile VoIP app specifically for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch, but it also features Android and BlackBerry compatible apps as well. These downloadable apps are free of charge for users with any RingCentral plan.

One unique feature of the RingCentral app is that when WiFi is unavailable, the mobile app will automatically place calls through “RingOut”, a replacement service enabled by RingCentral.

With the RingCentral mobile app, users also have access to Internet faxes with the ability to send and receive them on their smartphones.

2. Vocalocity

VoIP company Vocalocity provides an iPhone and Android compatible mobile VoIP app.

One beneficial aspect of using the Vocalocity mobile app is that users can update their account settings from their smartphones. With this capability, users can create out-of-office-messages or record new voicemail greetings for their business VoIP line from their smartphones.

The Vocalocity mobile app lets users review their extensions’ call logs. The users can return any missed calls with the tap of a button.

3. 8x8, Inc.

8x8 features a mobile VoIP app for the Android, iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. These apps are downloadable at no cost for users with existing Virtual Office or Virtual Office Pro plans.

One major advantage of the 8x8 mobile VoIP app is that users can turn off their smartphone data roaming and instead use WiFi spots to place calls while traveling outside of the US. In doing so, the smartphone connects with the user’s VoIP plan, and as a result the user will not incur any international dating roaming charges.

The 8x8 mobile app is also video calling capable. Users can use their smartphones to make video conferencing calls anywhere that there is Internet access.
