iPhone App of the Week: Vonage Cuts Down the Price of International Calling With Time to Call

Here’s an app everyone should consider – Time to Call, from Vonage, which offers flat rates on 15 minute international calls. 100 countries cost between $0.99 and $1.99, and another 90+ run between $2.99 and $9.99, regardless of whether you’re calling a landline or a mobile phone. Purchases are complete in-app, directly through iTunes – pay your flat rate for whatever country you are calling, then go on with your 15 minute call. It makes payment fast and easy.

So, how useful is this app? Depends on where you are calling, and for how long. There are cheaper alternatives, like calling cards, for commonly called countries, like England, but for other harder to reach countries, Time to Call seems like a gem. The selling point here for Vonage is ease of use – just use your Apple account and pay quickly. Regardless, it certainly beats the international rates of major service providers like AT&T and Verizon – often requiring an extra monthly fee for a per minute rate that is roughly equal to Vonage’s flat, 15 minute rate.

Time to Call is available now on the iTunes App Store, for free. The app also gives one free, fifteen minute call to each user before going to the pay-per-call system. Check it out if you have other countries to call – just keep one eye on the clock. That fifteen minute cut-off can sneak up on you.


  1. My family is all over the place. My parents are in Malaysia, my sister
    is in the Philippines, one of my brother is in the UK and the other one
    is in the Netherlands. I would call them every weekend and have us all
    conference. My mom would always remind us to call them once in a while
    because they miss us so much, and due to our busy schedules, we
    sometimes forget. Also, I will be on a 16-hour international flight with
    my 1 year old son in November. By myself! An iPad 2 will really help
    entertain my 1 year old and stop him from screaming and running all over
    the place. Please give it to me–for the good of mankind.
