    "I do a lot of selling on craigslist and other "offer up" sites. Due to this I'm constantly getting "unknown" phone calls and texts at all times of the day. Thankfully, with Google Voice I can keep those calls separate from my actual important calls. A big improvement over all the other voip apps, is I can "push" these google calls directly to my real phone and answer them like normal, instead of directly over the computer."

    "So this app is hit and miss. You'll probably love it if you have relatives or friends living abroad and want to talk with them live. You'll probably hate it if you don't need to speak to anyone live and/or are fine using Facebook/Messenger/FaceTime, etc. The app itself can be buggy at times...so be prepared for that. "

    "This works better than my native phone app for contacts. It automatically updates my contacts so I can text message them, which is nice. I just wish it had an option to choose not to add some contacts."

    "Skype is really the best VOIP app out there. I use it everyday at work to chat with co-workers and friends, make calls and share my screen. It's also really helpful in my work as a sys admin because if I can't reach a user by my usual remote access tools, I can have them give me control of their screen through Skype so I can fix their issues. There is also a good selection of emojis (important to me!) It is also very easy to install on a mobile and easy to use."

    "It's the only viable mobile VOIP solution out there. It uses almost no data and the battery of my phone lives much longer. It does not look as good as the others but in terms of functionality it has my vote"
