Vonage is a service that has taken the world storm. Many household and even businesses have switched to the service throughout the years. The service basically ditches the idea that you need a telephone line to have phone service and instead does everything over WiFi. This is great for those who want a cheap bill and who have a constant internet connection. Well now there is a Vonage app for Android which offers the same great benefits but on your mobile phone.

If you are pressed for minutes on your phone, the Vonage app can help by tying your phone number into their system and pushing all your outgoing calls across the wifi network you are on for free. But the main selling point for the service is the cheap international calling users can get with the service. Users can sign up for a monthly plan or just do a pay-per-use plan to receive credits for their international calls.

The setup was a little confusing, but once I was in, it was easy to make calls. The wifi feature worked great although you obviously need a wifi network for it to work. Outgoing calls were free but any incoming calls push right through the service and charge your cellphone carrier account. The app is free to check out, so take a look.
