App Of The Month: Viber

There are so many great travel apps. One thing that many people worry about, mainly when traveling overseas, is how to connect with those back home. Cell phones bills can get pretty high if you try calling back home. Viber helps solve these problems.

Viber is a free app that allows you to talk to other Viber users. As a user you have the ability to text, call, and even send videos and photos. Viber can be used on Wi-Fi or 3G network. If you are overseas then Wi-Fi is going to be your best bet.

I used Viber to contact my family while in Rome. I was able to get Wi-Fi in the hotel and certain restaurants. I would talk and send pictures all for free for as long as I wanted. It was great and made me feel closer to home. I had no issues, I could hear and be heard clearly. The beauty of HD calls.

Viber also allows you to call landlines and mobile numbers for a low rates for those who don’t have or can’t get the app. You also have the ability to download Viber to your computer. Another great feature is that you don’t have to manually put contacts in. The app asks for access to your contacts already stored in your mobile phone. It allows you to see who else in your contacts has Viber so you aren’t guessing. You are also able to do a group chat and message several people at one time.

It is a very simple app to use, if you can use your cell phone, you can use Viber. If you have used Viber, how was your experience with it?
