Maaii, the app for free talk and text is now available on Android. Maaii, allows users to make calls and send text messages to contacts and social network friends for free, today announced the launch of its beta on Google Play. As you may recall from my review, Maaii gives you 100 free minutes per day, which is great for low volume users.
According to Maaii, in the six months since Maaii’s iOS launch, the mobile app has signed up more than 1 million registered users.
"Our inclusion in Google Play demonstrates Maaii’s commitment to delivering extraordinary value to our growing user base. The successful launch of our iOS app resulted in a cascade of requests for access to our Android app and we’ve responded by opening up our beta testing to the public. The results thus far have been staggering, with tens of thousands of testers already participating,” said Chris Lewis, Vice President for Maaii.
“Android users can now enjoy a mobile VoIP application which connects them to their social networks on their smartphones for free. We’re excited to add that this is only the beginning. We aim to expand the service to include a wide range of integrated voice and messaging services that will change the way people communicate,” Lewis continued.
Maaii for Android features all of the key functions the iOS version provides including:
- Predictive Dialing, to help users quickly find contacts as they dial a number.
- Social Sync, which allows users to place phone calls or send texts to Facebook friends, even without knowing their phone number.
- Push Notifications, which alert users of incoming calls, messages and friends joining Maaii.
- International Voice Roaming, which allows users to make calls to landline and mobile numbers of friends who don’t yet have Maaii in more than 200 destinations Worldwide.
In addition to Android beta, Maaii recently launched a developer SDK allowing 3rd party developers to add HD voice communications into their native iOS or Android applications. This is backed by its extensive operator network and is the precursor to a range of SDK services that will form a suite of enriched platform services.
The Android application can be downloaded from Google Play and from the iTunes Store globally. To connect with other Maaii users, join our communities at http://www.facebook.com/maaii.limited or https://twitter.com/maaiiapp.
On a related note, Maaii offers a Facebook app called 'maaii Tag', a fun and innovative way to earn maaiiOut credit for the maaii app. According to Maaii, "All you have to do is tag your friends and for every tag that is accepted you'll be rewarded with $0.10. You can earn up to $25 of maaiiOut credit through the game per month, and if you're feeling competitive you can play Double or Nothing for the chance to win double the credit if you can beat our top scorer!"
Over 5,000 free minutes is up for grabs every month for each user and since its launch in June 2012, the maaii Tag game has already distributed 10,000 minutes of free calling credit.
