JUST IN TIME FOR THE HOLIDAYS... New POPTALK Application AllowS Android Users to Call and Text Their Families in Mexico and Latin America for FREE
Have you ever had to travel to see family, for work, or just a last minute issue? I have! Sometimes that traveling takes me places where roaming becomes real. So real that it creates a huge impact on my phone bill. Although, I'm sure I'm not the only one. Sometimes I have friends who I speak to on a daily basis who take off for traveling. Whether it's personal or work related, we opt to talk only via email because calling each other is not the best choice. With roaming charges, one has to truly consider the option of just waiting to talk when we get back to our normal territory. One of my good friends Katia took off for vacation and while we had much to tell each other, we waited to be on common grounds to exchange our experiences. However, this is about to change. Now there is one application that will make all those roaming charges a part of the past. No more long waits because with Poptalk, it's all just a tap away.
The people I call the most and speak to the most are my Editor in chief, Sister, Mom, Dad, and Partner (who travels a lot to out of range places where roaming charges apply so we opt to speak as little as possible), but with PopTalk you can earn credits to call everyone on your list for free. So your favorites on your phone can be more than just a list of your favorite people, but also your favorite calls. Because they're free!
Created by former Google managers, UC Berkeley graduate Victor Santos and Harvard graduate Sara Choi, both technology entrepreneurs with immigrant families, as a solution to serve underserved communities. Sara Choi shared, "From day one we created this company because we believe the ability to stay in contact with your loved ones shouldn't be a privilege just for the rich, especially when 83% of the world lives in an emerging market." Victor Santos added, "We want to help the under-served stay connected to their loved ones by being the first company to provide a completely free telecom alternative that includes calling (regardless of if you have internet), texting, and even data (through the ability to use Poptalk credits to top-up your prepaid phone)."
This application is completely free and allows to call or SMS any phone for free by simply renting their smartphone lock screens to sponsors, receiving credits daily by using their phones normally. Users can also use these credits to pay for their relatives' cellphone service and data in Latin America.
Poptalk will not limit its users as it will be available for the Android Market 4.0+ and will follow at the end of march 2016 with the iOS Market.
