Hong Kong – A new international calling app called Yelo has been launched today on the Apple App store and Google Play. Yelo will enable millions of users across the Android, iPhone and iPad platforms to make low cost, high quality calls to landline and mobile phone numbers in more than 200 countries.
International calling, roaming and SMS have been cash cows for operators for many years. In the near future most smartphones will have free mobile broadband at home, in the office and at public places through WiFi networks. These developments allow Yelo to develop an app that will do to mobile calling what WhatsApp did to SMS on mobile phones. The uptake of WhatsApp and other mobile apps proof consumers are open for change when lower cost and great service are offered.
Yelo aims to become one of the most comprehensive solutions on the market for low-cost calling. With Yelo, users will save up to over 90% compared to leading operators and service providers such as Vodafone, AT&T, T-Mobile, SkypeOut, Jajah, and Rebtel.
“GSM users on unlimited data plan (3G) or using WiFi are not even touching their phone bill when using Yelo.” Said Philippe Joly, co-founder of Yelo
Unlike other applications allowing for free calls but between users of the same App, Yelo allows its users to call any number, either mobile or fixed landline, anywhere in the world. The recipient of the call does not need to own a smartphone, install any app or even be online.
