T-Mobile USA might be the only major U.S. carrier without an iPhone, but that doesn’t mean it can’t get in on the iOS action. In fact, the carrier recently released an application in the App Store for its VoIP service (“Bobsled“). Once downloaded, users of the application can make free calls to other users of the app, which is available for Android smart phones and also in a desktop version.
As outlined in the app’s release notes:
Reach your friends on their desktop or mobile device with Bobsled. No need for your friends to download anything to receive your calls!
Simply tap on a friend to call them. Bobsled will find them on Facebook, their Android, or their iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch, and connect the call. If they are not there, leave a Bobsled audio message for them on Facebook. This will leave a public message on your friend’s wall.
Listening to a rockin’ band and want to share the love but not interested in chatting live? Or maybe you’d like to send your boyfriend a happy birthday message? No problem – Bobsled lets you record an audio message and post it to your friend’s Facebook wall.
Features of Bobsled include include:
- Call Facebook friends on Facebook (Web) or Bobsled Mobile
- Receive calls from your Facebook friends using Bobsled
- Post audio messages to your friends’ walls
- Call History
The application is currently available to download in the App Store for free. Take Bobsled for a spin, and be sure to post your thoughts in the comments.
