With the cost of making calls rising every year, it’s safe to say that paying for calls is a waste of money – you can easily spend that money on saving for a new car or house, buying toys for your children or some new clothes, but instead you’re forced to pay to your service provider. Have you ever wondered how to reduce these costs? We have the perfect solution for you! All you need is your iPhone or Android phone and one of these cool 7 apps that allow you to make calls absolutely for free with the help of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) technology!
Skype is one of the most famous names when it comes to free phone calls. Initially Skype was available as a desktop application, but with the development of mobile platforms Skype expanded to such operation systems as iOS and Android. You can call other Skype users for free, but if you want to make a call to a landline or to a person who doesn’t have Skype on their mobile phone, you’ll have to pay money from your Skype account credit.

WePhone is another wonderful app for calls that you can make either for free or at super low rates, depending on the type of call you want to make. WePhone is ideal for people who are not too tech savvy and simply want an easy to use and understand mobile app to save money on phone calls. You can call other users for free, but in some cases you’ll be required to pay – for example, when you want to increase audio quality when the reception is not good enough.

Obviously, any list of mobile apps allowing free phone calls would not be complete without Viber, which is viewed by some as a true leader in this field. Currently there are over 200 million Viber users in the world, and you can call and text them absolutely for free. Another useful Viber feature is group chats – by creating groups of friends of up to 100 people you can chat with your friends, family, and coworkers. Stickers and emoticons are another feature you’ll find delightful. Plus, Viber is wonderfully easy and fun to use.
