Zipt blog - Connect worldwide with cheap calls
Moving away from home is hard, and especially so if you used to spend every single day of your life constantly surrounded by your family and friends in the comfort of your home. This was a big change for me, for the first time in my life I didn’t know what I could expect. All I knew was that I’m moving from Mexico City to work in Florida, and that I probably wouldn’t be coming home for quite some time.
We get lots of questions from users interested in our app about the things that differentiate Zipt from other applications that offer free international calls and messages. They ask us about the features that make it better and what they would gain if they switched from their current application to Zipt. So we decided to sort all those questions and give you four most prominent features that make using Zipt easier and more efficient than your current free calling app.
With Zipt’s base of users steadily growing, we took some time to sit down with Marco, a web designer from Brazil and one of the first users of the application. Marco told us that he likes travelling so we asked him a couple of questions about his time with Zipt, what made him switch from another calling app and what he thinks is one of the biggest advantages of our free calling app.
It’s been three months since I last saw my wife and kids, and it’s going to be a month more until I get home again. You kind of have to get used to it when you’re working on a cruise ship, but I never fully did. When I’m somewhere in the Pacific, seeing all the passengers and all those families having fun on board, I get a little homesick. All I want to do is pick up the phone and just call home. Fortunately, with Zipt’s free calling app, doing that is easier than before and even though I’m thousands of miles away from my family, I feel like they’re right beside me.
When I was a kid, my friends and I used to watch those old Indiana Jones movies all the time and dreamed about how cool it would be to travel around the world and discover new places. When we grew up, we learned about backpacking and now we’re slowly starting to make those dreams a reality. The journeys we go on are not your ordinary run-of-the-mill trips where you call a travel agency and let them do all the work. We like to plan them ourselves and when it’s all set and done, we just grab our backpacks and go.
Not so long ago, going away from home meant not seeing or speaking to your family and friends until you get back. Everybody depended on expensive internet service providers so it’s no wonder that sometimes weeks or even months passed without calling the ones you used to share every moment of your life with. Free international calls or even cheap international calls were nothing but a desire.
Unlike other messaging apps that need high speed networks like 3G or Wi-Fi to be able to work, Zipt’s VoIP phone service takes full advantage of the low bandwidth internet connection and doesn’t need a lot of data to achieve great sound quality.
What is Zipt?
ZipT is a new smartphone application with low bandwidth voice call support that lets you send an
unlimited number of texts and call anyone with crystal clear sound quality. All that you need is an internet connection and a Zipt application installed on your phone.
