magicJack VocalTec, Ltd (Nasdaq:CALL), a leading cloud-based communications company, announced today that its new mobile calling app – magicApp – has been optimized for Intel’s latest x86 mobile platform. The Intel® Software Partner Program has included the magicApp for free calling in Intel’s Android Showcase, an online collection of Android applications designed to run on smartphones and tablets. The program gives magicJack developers access to Intel tools, code and support to help maximize magicApp’s performance on Android devices.
magicJack’s free calling mobile app currently offers free calls to U.S. and Canadian landlines and mobile devices as well as to any magicJack number worldwide without using minutes or requiring a voice plan. magicApp also provides for low cost international calling from the U.S. and can securely access stored contacts in Android devices for fast and easy calling. Users without a current magicJack account can still use the service, while existing magicJack customers are able to use their current number on magicApp and devices as well.
“We launched the magicApp as a companion to our award-winning VoIP device and it’s been incredibly popular with almost 7 million registered users,” said Greg Wood, CIO of magicJack. “By working with Intel and optimizing our solution for Android devices with the x86 processor, we’re able to provide a crystal clear voice experience that continuously improves. In adopting Intel’s latest mobile technology, our developers have gained valuable insight to help ensure our new, next generation magicApp will run smoothly upon release in a couple weeks.”
The free magicApp is available for Android and iOS devices and can be downloaded in their respective app stores.
