ShoePhone is here - talk unlimited and FREE with Anyone, Anywhere, Anytime

| Author: TalkShoe Team | In Announcements, Host Lounge News Print This Post

TalkShoe today launched the general product availability of its FREE ShoePhone, service, an easy to use service for unlimited group calling with anyone, anywhere, anytime. ShoePhone is fully integrated with TalkShoe Live. There’s no need to enter IDs, phone numbers, or IP addresses – just use a headset and a PC or Mac.

ShoePhone uses voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology to create calls. However, unlike other VoIP services, users can connect ShoePhone-to-ShoePhone as well as with people using telephones, mobile phones, other VoIP services such as Skype, and 3rd party VoIP clients such as SJphone and Gizmo. This is because ShoePhone is based on a telco-grade conferencing system unlike other server-based VoIP-only services which have limited conferencing capabilities.

Using TalkShoe with ShoePhone or telephone makes it a great tool for social networking. Our goal is to bring topic-based interactive voice discussions to the masses.
