iPhone app news: Vonage offers international calls through iTunes

Unique payment method offers easier international calls.

Popular VoIP service Vonage has launched a new app for iPhone, which allows users users to make cheap international calls on the fly and pay for them via their iTunes account.

The Time to Call app, which is free to download, allows users to make a call up to 15 minutes in length through VoIP to landlines or mobiles over Wi-Fi and 3G.

Users are charged per call, with each 15 minute session costing £1.49 to 100 countries. Calls to an additional 90 countries start at £1.99 and everything is then charged to the iTunes account associated with the iPhone, iPad or iPod touch.

More good news arises from the fact that anything under the 15 minute call limit can be used for your next conversation, so there's no wastage if you're only on the phone for five minutes or so.

Each download includes a free 15 minute call, with no further commitment necessary, so it's definitely worth a download.

It's certainly a little more convenient than constantly topping up Google Voice credit, if you just need to make a call in a hurry and the blanket rate lets you know exactly how much your international chin wag is going to cost.
