Available to subscribers with international plans
Vonage has released an app (free, Android Market) for making long-distance calls from Android phones. The VoIP services provider's Extensions app enables subscribers with Android-based cell phones to make calls throughout the world without incurring international charges from their wireless carrier. Calls are still subject to the call rates under a Vonage subscriber's plan.
The Extensions app supports voice but not text messaging. Its availability follows closely on the heels of the company rolling out its Time to Call app for the iPhone (free, App Store) which it released earlier this month. [via Engadget]
