FooTalk is a new app for iOS and Android that significantly reduces the cost of making calls for smartphone and tablet users. It allows customers to make free calls to friends and family who also have the FooTalk app, anywhere in the world via Wi-Fi or 3G and 4G mobile data services.
Graeme Hutchinson, former sales and marketing chief, founding management team member of Virgin Mobile, and co-founder of FooTalk said: 'People are travelling the world for work and pleasure more than ever and now boast a truly international group of friends.
'But surprisingly it seems that men are the best at staying in touch with friends once they go overseas.
"Women may be put off by the thought of high costs to call abroad, but by using new apps this could become a thing of the past. Using these new methods, people can actually save money on their calls, whilst connecting on a more personal level with friends abroad.
"Facebook and Twitter might keep you abreast of your friends' lives but there's always more to be had from a conversation - even if the other person is in a different country."
"At this time of year, when the recent festive period has left people more determined than ever to save money, people with friends and relatives living abroad should know there are free ways of staying in touch with friends, colleague es and loved ones."
FooTalk also allows users to call any number in the world at extremely low rates (significantly lower than other alternative calling services like Skype). Whether calling abroad, avoiding expensive roaming charges whilst travelling, or simply calling friends nearby, FooTalk offers exceptional value compared to other services.
In addition to the significant cost saving benefits, FooTalk's patent-pending Discovery service is designed to ensure a more reliable connection than competitor products. This combination delivers a customer experience that gives them the most complete alternative to their network operator in one, easy-to-use app.
