Zipt, our free calling app, is constantly being updated with new features that enable you to freely communicate with everyone you care about. There’s so much more than just free calls, sending texts and video calling, so we’re giving you a couple of tips that can help you in your day to day usage of Zipt.

INTEGRATE ZIPT WITH DIALER AND SMS
The best way to use Zipt’s full potential is to have it enabled at all times. To do that, go to Settings and activate the Auto Start on Start Up option. Don’t worry about your battery, Zipt won’t drain it because it works idly in the background, just like your regular dialer. While we’re talking about dialers, make sure you also activate options called Integrate with native dialer and Integrate with native SMS. You will now receive all your calls and messages through Zipt while at the same time making free international calls to all your contact that have the application installed.

SEND PHOTOS, VIDEOS, STICKERS AND SOUNDS
Zipt’s messaging feature isn’t used only for sending text messages. It enables you to send photos, stickers, sounds and even video clips. Choose a person you want to contact, click on the photo icon in the messaging menu and you’ll enter your device’s gallery from which you can choose a file you want to send. If you want to take it a step further, click on that small microphone icon. Sending text is cool and all, but with Zipt, you can send short audio clips!

An app like Zipt wouldn’t be complete without stickers, so we added a bunch of them to upgrade your messaging game. Click on the smiley face icon from the menu and send any sticker you like! Probably the greatest part of all this is the camera icon. It’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so what’s the worth of a 25-second video? You can now record and share short entertaining videos, just like the ones you see in your social media feeds!

CONNECT TO DROPBOX AND DRIVE
You’re not limited to sending just documents from your phone. You can connect Zipt to Dropbox and Google Drive, access all of the documents you stored there and share them in just a couple of taps. Just click on the paperclip icon and choose documents you want to send, it’s that easy!

USE ZIPT EVEN WITHOUT A SIM CARD
When you install Zipt, it connects to your phone number, but it doesn’t require a SIM card to work. That means you can have a single phone number that’s connected to the application, but use it on multiple devices without any problem. If you’ve already installed Zipt on your phone, but you also want to install it on a new device without a SIM card, enter the number you used during the first installation. You will receive a registration code on the device that currently holds the SIM card with the entered number, so you just need to enter it on your new device and you’re good to go.

It doesn’t matter if you want to make free international video calls or voice calls, once you’ve installed Zipt and connected it to a number, you just need a device that can be connected to the Internet. It’s great if you want to share your SIM card with a family member, but still be able to make free calls!

INVITE FRIENDS AND GET FREE CREDITS
In addition to using Bundles and the Top Up function to get credits for Zipt Out calls, you can also receive them by inviting new users to Zipt via your referral link. With it, you can get up to $50 of credits. Find your referral link by entering the Invite menu and clicking on the Refer and Earn icon. The more friends you invite, the more credits you’ll get!

There’s a lot more cool stuff within our application, but we’re leaving them for you to discover. Install the application on your phone and try out the things we just shared with you. And just call!
