Having used many different tools for communication via my mobile, I’ve found Viber to be one of the best. I started out many years ago with Skype but found it to be rather buggy, this was true over ten years ago before the age of mobile apps. Mainly used it to talk with people in other countries or as a cheap way to call home when I was out of the country but I found Skype to be too buggy with calls dropping or strange sounds on the line etc.
After testing a few different tools I eventually I found Viber and it has proven itself to be a pretty reliable tool.
You can make free Viber to Viber calls from your mobile phone using the app and your data plan or Wifi connection. You can also make calls from your Viber to a landline or mobile number, you pay for this but it can be very cost effective for example making calls to some EU countries from UK is very cheap and with some mobile companies like 3 you can call from 11 countries using your existing free calls on your mobile contract however for some strange reason, Czech Republic is not one of those countries. So Viber is a great cost effective way to make calls from a UK mobile to a Czech mobile or landline and it works from Czech Republic to UK.
The tool has many other great useful features including sharing videos and photos from your mobile and the ability to hold a group chat. Another great feature, although not that useful if you have unlimited texts on your contract is that it can automatically send your text messages via Viber to anyone you text that’s also on Viber, it also offers to place a voice call as a Viber to Viber call if the person you are calling is on Viber.
The app looks like it’s targeted at young people with all it’s ‘Stickers’ and other bits but it is a great little small business tool that’s waiting for you to use it.
Over the years this app has worked great on our HTC Desire HD, Samsung Galaxy Note2, Samsung Galaxy S4 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, have also used it a few times on a PC and experienced the usual great results.
