UK carrier Three now has a Wi-Fi calling app for iOS. The app, called Three inTouch, lets Three subscribers place phone calls with their existing Three number over Wi-Fi, even if they don't have a cellular signal. And it's all done at no cost, regardless of whether you're on a contract or prepaid plan. There's just one problem… Wi-Fi calling will be built into iOS with the release of iOS 8 in just a few month's time.
Overall, Three inTouch offers a nice clean interface with lots of white, and ties in not just the ability to place calls over Wi-Fi, but also supports text messaging as well.
Three's set up inTouch to be as easy as possible to use, stating that all you have to do is "just download and activate" and not have to fuss about with logins or passwords. It's a simple and straight-forward set-up that we appreciate, but with this very feature soon to be an integral part of iOS, we have to wonder if it was worth releasing at this point. The app is said to be coming to Android soon, and there haven't been any rumblings of similar features getting built in to Google's mobile OS, so perhaps they'll benefit more than Three iPhone users will in a few month's time.
