ChatTime Launches Android App for High-Quality, Low-Cost International Calling
SmartRoam, the developer of ChatTime (www.chattimeapp.com), announced today the launch of its first ChatTime app for Android phones for crystal-clear low-cost international calling.
The app is available as a free download on Google Play™ and enables users to make high-quality carrier-grade international voice calls to friends and family without the need for Wi-Fi or 3G/LTE. With rates up to 98% lower than average mobile carriers and up to 70% lower than current Skype Out rates, ChatTime users enjoy more talk time with their loved ones.
After gaining huge success and industry awards with their iPhone app ChatTime, the new ChatTime for Android is fully packed with enhanced features for communication and user experience, providing crystal-clear voice quality to users for making international calls, to any phone in the world. ChatTime for Android also allows users to earn talk time by engaging with advertisements from Tapjoy® (http://www.tapjoy.com), a leading mobile advertising and monetization platform.
"ChatTime has done very well on iOS, earning many loyal users and high ratings," said Christine Lee, Senior Vice President, Global Developer Relations at Tapjoy. "We're excited to partner with them to monetize their new Android app via the Tapjoy Marketplace, which will allow all their users to access ChatTime's features for free through an ad-supported model. Given Tapjoy's success in helping developers make more money and increase user retention, we're excited for the ChatTime launch on Android."
Low-Cost Calls to Any Phone
As a ChatTime user, you can easily talk more with your loved ones with rates starting from 1.9¢/minute to many popular destinations. For popular destinations like India, Mexico, and Vietnam, ChatTime's exceptionally low rates allow you to talk almost three times longer than Skype. All new registered users get free trial call credits and enjoy a risk-free trial of up to 100 minutes talktime, depending on where you are calling.
ChatTime is NOT a VOIP calling app, compared to Skype, Viber and all other VoIP apps, ChatTime calls are crisp and crystal-clear without annoying voice delays, echoes or distortion. No Wi-Fi or 3G/LTE data connection is required, so unlike VoIP apps that only let you call people who are also using their app, experience the freedom to call anyone even if they are not using ChatTime
ChatTime has been downloaded over 2 millions times and is in use in over 216 countries/territories. Since launch, ChatTime has been consistently ranked in the top 100 of all applications in the Productivity category in 88 countries, in the Top 10 Productivity apps in 57 countries and has been ranked as high as #12 overall in the US AppStore.
Also, ChatTime was recognized by Red Herring as a Global 100 award winner, and by Mobile Village as a "Shining Star" consumer app for voice calling.
