Viber updates iPhone app, features iOS 7 redesign
Calling and messaging app Viber today has announced an update for its iPhone app, featuring a redesign for iOS 7. Viber facilitates free world-wide calling and messaging over a Wi-Fi or 3G connections to other Viber users, with calls made to non-Viber landlines and mobile numbers possible at low rates. Viber v4.2.0 features a revised aesthetic to compliment iOS 7, and the added ability to send up to 10 photos and videos at one time, to reduce redundancy in file transfer. Users can now send longer video messages, and contacts can see when a user is typing a message to them from an Android tablet, Linux, Mac, PC, or Windows 8 device. Viber is free to download through iTunes for devices running iOS 6.0 or later.
