Line2 iPhone app update runs in background on iOS 4

updated 06:20 pm EDT, Tue June 29, 2010

Update expands 2nd-line service app's abilities

Toktumi has launched an iOS 4 update to its VoIP and cellular app, Line2 v2.4. The app allows users to operate a second phone number on an iPhone, supporting VoIP calling when possible and reverting to cellular when necessary, functioning over both Wi-Fi and 3G networks. It can provide voice-calling service via Wi-Fi when AT&T service is unavailable, for users who can't afford to miss a call, or for users who are often in an AT&T dead spot. Line2 can also save cellular minutes on A&T's network, with unlimited US and Canada calling and low cost international calling.

Version 2.4 adds support for running the app in the background, allowing users to continue and receive calls via the Line2 app while using other apps or device functions. Previously, making a Line2 call meant keeping the app open and navigating away from the app meant a missed call for anyone trying to reach the number.

The app requires at least iOS 3.1.2 and functions on iPhones, iPod touches (2G and higher) and the iPad. Line2 is being offered on the iTunes App Store for free as part of a July 4 sale. The service is $15 per month unlimited calling to the US and Canada, with international rates starting at $.02 per minute. There is a $20 per month pay as you go plan available as well.
