Send and receive free phone calls and SMS from your iOS device with Viber

If you have an iPhone, you have all of the features that can be found in Apple's iPod with the added benefit of being able to make phone calls. But even if you do have an iPhone, call can be expensive depending on the tariff you are using. Viber is a free VoIP app in a similar vein to Skype that can be used to send and receive free phone calls and text messages with other Viber users.

The problem with any such app is that it is reliant on the people you need to get in touch with having the same app installed. This is true of Viber but it does have one big advantage. All that is required is the app itself; there is no configuration required and no need to build up a list of contacts. When you place a call through Viber, you do so using your friends' regular phone number.

There is certainly no denying that when it is working, Viber is a great app and provides a way of saving money on the calls you make. However, there are occasional problems with sound quality as well as random disconnections. It is difficult to complain about such problems when an app is free, but it does make it hard to rely on Viber as your primary means of communication.

For iPod and non-3G iPad users, Viber adds a handy calling facility to an already handy device while providing iPhone users with the ability to save a chunk of cash on voice calls and text messages. With an interface that is almost indistinguishable from the iPhone's usual phone 'app' Viber is a seriously useful tool that's worth trying out.

What's New in Version 6.2:

●Share sticker packages - Does someone specific come to mind when you see a new sticker package? Let them know it’s available in the Sticker Market instantly
●Storage consumption optimization - Including option to delete sticker packages you no longer use to free up space
●Sticker preview - Long tap stickers to preview them before you send
●Now send money from the U.S. to virtually anyone in more than 200 countries and territories, powered by Western Union®

Verdict:

If you don’t have to worry about data charges, Viber offers a great way to save money on your phone bills.

Viber Media's response

Posted by: Viber Media, 28 August 2011 13:01

Hi,
This is a member of the Viber Development Team.

Thanks for this review of Viber. We're excited to see the great interest that so many people around the world take in our application.

I'd like to point out that Viber is one of the VoIP apps that use the least amount of data during a call (roughly 0.5MB per minute). In fact, this amount is planned to be significantly reduced soon, so our users can stop worrying about their data being spent :)

On WiFi, of course, data is completely free.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate.

Thanks,
Viber.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
