Top Free Calling Apps for Android


Using Android apps to make phone calls to any phone number can be a huge plus. With confusing and expensive mobile plans and long term contracts everywhere you turn, having a cost effective way to use your Android device for local and international calls to both landlines and mobiles can save you heaps of money and frustration

When looking for the best calling apps for an Android device, one thing to consider is ease of use when calling non Android users.

While there are a number of well-known calling apps out there, such as Google Voice, Skype, and so on, the market is certainly littered with newer apps which may prove more suitable for you.

Top Calling Apps for Android

Rebtel is becoming a big player in the market on the basis of its high quality and low cost of service.  Phone calls can be made to any other phone, including landlines and the app can be used to make international calls for up to 98% less cost than with traditional carriers. It’s easy to set up, you can try free of charge and use Wi-Fi networks to avoid expensive roaming charges when you are abroad.

KakaoTalk is a fun calling app that allows you to choose from a variety of custom themes and change them frequently. It also has plenty of inventive emoticons and works across multiple mobile platforms, allowing for free calling and messaging within the network.  Their developers are on top of bug fixing and new updates and there are a bunch of plugins for extra features like photo sharing, so this app is definitely worth a look.

Tango is another free calling app for Android that allows calling and messaging across multi platforms. Android benefits include support for sending audio messages, sharing photos to Facebook, as well as avatars and video filters for calls. Extra features are available for an additional cost, such as an animation display during text conversations and access to games.

Line is a popular free calling app and provides easy text messaging as well as photo sending. The app even has its own messaging system for users who want to bypass traditional SMS.

Whilst one of these apps may be just what you’re searching for, it’s worth remembering that many of them only work ‘app-to-app’. That is to say that both parties need the app installed in order to communicate.  There is often a greater need to contact friends, relatives and business associates across multi platforms, connecting from the internet to mobile phones and land lines. This is where other services like Rebtel are really useful.
