FreeFly881 releases free global communication mobile application

Ontario-based FreeFly881 announces the launch of its app for Android phones and tablets that removes international calling charges on all devices.

Building on its recent iOS App launch last fall, the FreeFly881 team have now developed an app for Android users — individuals and business people alike — that will keep them connected with contacts and clients anywhere in the world, for free.

Driven by its slogan of “One World. One Call.”, the FreeFly881 virtual phone system, which can be applied to smartphones, VoIP phones, and tablets, has created a network that has broken away from the strict parameters of traditional communication companies.

“The iOS release was our first big step in efforts to create a virtual phone network that is unique and beneficial for everybody who needs to be contacted regardless of the country they are in,” says FreeFly881 Communications Inc.’s CEO Raymond Kwan. “The Android app now adds a new level to the number of people in the ecosystem and the overall reach of the app across the world, especially in countries where iPhones do not have a large market share,” he adds.

Once the service is activated users only need an active Internet connection to call other FreeFly881 numbers and VoIP phones. Unlike other calling apps, users of FreeFly881 do not need to add or accept contact requests; they can just open the app and dial.

For business people on holiday or on international business trips, the service can be an invaluable tool as they will be able to make and receive calls from anywhere on their mobile device completely free of charge.

Additionally, FreeFly881 features a global directory that incorporates all registered users of the app. With this tool, individual and business profiles — which can be easily customized — can be searched for by anyone using the app.

“Potential clients that are based overseas who don’t have the resources to make calls to a particular business now do not have the barriers of international calling charges imposed on to them because of the FreeFly881 app,” Kwan explains. “The Android app, which complements the biggest smartphone market share in the world, gives businesses that exposure and an opportunity to grow their customer base,” he adds.

By applying the FreeFly881 app to their business and marketing strategy, entrepreneurs can now be contacted by the growing number Android users that, according to research firm IDC, account for nearly 80% of the global market share.
