"Knocking down communication barriers"

Pinger Messenger is a global free calling and texting multi-platform app

Instant messaging apps with push notifications were a revolution that changed forever the way we communicate through mobile devices. The main catch of those services is though, that both sender and receiver need to install the same app, sign up the same service and of course, having a smartphone. Pinger is going a step further: a free calling and texting service that ensures free communication even with those users that haven't installed the app or even without a smartphone.That's why, according to ComScore, Pinger is one of the Top 5 downloaded and used apps.

It works this way. Both text and calls between Pinger users are completely free. Message feature work pretty much like other instant messaging apps: push notifications, chat window, groups and media sharing. It uses VoIP technology to place calls. It works perfectly over WiFi and pretty good over data (depending on the signal quality).

Unlike other messaging apps, when those friends you want to call or text aren't Pinger users you can still contact with them through Pinger. SMS to any number are always free. Calls to non-Pinger users require a positive balance of in-app points (Pinger Points). After signing up, users get a free amount of Pinger Points as well as a fully-functional local second phone number. Pinger points allow them to call and text non-Pinger users for a limited time. However, Pinger users can earn those points too: they'll refill their saldo when receiving calls from both mobile and landlines numbers. This system turns communication into a game and gives the chances to users to keep calling and texting for free. Anywa, ff they run out of points, they can purchase packs directly from the app.

It goes without saying that the local second phone number that Pinger provides their users with enables devices with no SIM-card (iPod and iPad) to use calling and messaging features.

Pinger's set in a neat minimalist interface that makes navigation really intuitive. It's too sober though: I'm missing themes, background, emojis and some customization. By the way, main catch is that Pinger is just available in US, Canada and Spain from now. However, users from other countries can already join "Pinger without VoIP to non-Pinger users feature" by downloading TextFree app (iOS, Android and desktop versions).

Highly recommended.

Developer's original description available here
FREE TEXTS AND FREE CALLS TO ANY PHONE
Pinger turns your Android device into a free phone with free texting to any phone in your country and free calling anywhere in the world, including landlines and mobile phones.

WHY PAY TO TEXT OR CALL?
Some “free” apps charge you after a while. Not us. We’re free today and we’ll be free tomorrow. You just need to receive as many texts as you send!

REAL UK MOBILE PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED
We give your device a real UK mobile number that makes and receives texts and calls, or use it as a second number for your phone. Give your new number to friends so they can call and text you.

UNLIMITED FREE TEXTS
Send as many texts messages as you like, to any mobile phone, anywhere in your country. Text is always free as long as you receive as many as you send.

FREE CALLS WORLDWIDE
Make free calls to any phone anywhere in the world. Just dial the country code and the number. It’s always free to receive inbound calls. Incoming calls to your number earn points that you can use to call anywhere in the world.

BETTER THAN THOSE MESSENGER APPS
With Pinger you can call or text any phone, even if they don’t have Pinger and even if they don’t have a smartphone!
• Call or text your mum’s non-smartphone--FREE.
• Call any restaurant to make reservations--FREE.
Some other Messenger apps only work for text messages or calls between people using the same app, and only when they have a smartphone.

REAL UK PHONE NUMBER INCLUDED
You choose your own real UK phone number which you can use to call and text any other phone number. Texting is always free as long as you receive as much as you send. You can make outbound voice calls using the points you earn from receiving calls to your number.

NO NEED FOR MULTIPLE APPS
Now you don’t need to know what messenger apps your friends, relatives or colleagues use. Pinger does it all. Just use their landline or mobile phone number and your texts and calls are 100% free. It’s that simple.

PINGER IS MORE THAN A MESSENGER
When your friends have Pinger, talking and texting gets even better. The calls are in HD, so they sound great. You and your friends on Pinger get unlimited calls (talk as long as you like) and unlimited free texts (goodbye 160 character limit) to and from one another, anywhere in the world!

    When ever I received a call, the screen will be blanked and I can not see the callers phone number. Everything will go blank. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app several times but still always blank screen. I have emailed several times to Pinger support team about the issue if they could provide a solution but they did not reply up-till today. It's too bad

    I like the app it works very well but sadly i don't get any free points even when a friend pingers me. Also it says it will give points but it does not. If its not fixed I will delete and report. Good app just this disappointed me!
