Top free apps in app store - FreePP Mobile

You'll no longer need to pay for long-distance calls. Thanks to FreePP, you can talk for free anytime and anywhere with friends and family who also install this application.

The app also supports text, voice message and picture transmission. Users say the reception is good. On the downside, the app does not work on the iPad. It does work on iPhones and Android-powered smartphones.
