Calling Card released in the App Store

Calling Card released

A new application for setting up calling cards on the iPhone has become available in the iTunes store. Calling Card 1.0 allows users to set up multiple calling card accounts and then switch between them. The settings allow almost any calling card to be supported, including cards that require the use of a PIN. Users can even set up the cards with pauses to fully automate a process that may require several numerical entries before the call can be made. The developer does note that not all cards will work 100% due to the fact that the iPhone dials numbers rather slowly.

The application also provides multiple ways to select who the call will go to through the calling card. Users can pick contacts from their contact book, set up a list of favorites or enter a number manually. The developer also hopes to add a new feature in the near future that will allow users to view the local time of the contact being called.

Calling Card is available in the App Store now for $1.

    Stupid APP!

    Why would you ever use a calling card from your iPhone?

    You are already paying for the minutes and you get free Long Distance to anywhere in the 50 States and some Territories.

    Don't say for International... AT&T offers much better rates for International on the iPhone then you will get when you use a Calling Card....remember... when using the Callin Card.. you are getting charged what they charge you plus eating up minutes on the phone.. so factor that into the cost of the "Cheap Convenience Store International Calling Card" you purchase.

    euh hello??

    not everyone is using AT&T.. I live in Canada and Rogers (or Bell or any provider) doesn't offer good long distance rate. Even my father who is still on landline calls me thru a calling card to save cost. And what if you only need to call LD once in a while? It is not worth subscribing to a plan... I mean, there wouldn't be calling cards if they weren't useful..

    I agree with you...

    jhawk95... You probably don't call to Europe or Russia or even India... Landline rates are high enough and outrages on a cell phone without using a calling card. Calling card is cheap, can be recharged, has no monthly fee and no committments, why not use it??
