Ever wish you could call and text on your nifty iPod Touch?
With just 2 apps, you can completely turn your iPod to a iPhone with no monthly cost.
** This will ONLY work in a Wi-Fi area. this will not substitute a mobile cell-phone in anyway, so only expect it to be used at-home or at that computer-illiterate person's home who hasn't pass-protected their Wi-Fi. **
This is handy for replacing a home-phone or helping save on prepaid cell-phone minutes, though.
Or if you lose your phone. Which happens to me more then a lot.
Step 1: Calling - VoIP
With the VoIP app, you can make local call for no charge at all, and even international charges aren't expensive at all. In fact, the majority of us doesn't even make international calls. Even the app costs nothing, so you have nothing to lose if you don't like it!
App name: iCall free VoIP
Company: iCall inc.
Space required: 1.9mb
** NOTE: Only iPod 3G have built-in microphones. If you have a 1G or 2G iPod Touch, you have to buy a microphone that fits in the headphone jack. You can buy a nice one at RadioShack for only about $10 though. **
Other apps that work: TextPlus with Voice handy, becuase it also features texting.
