magicApp, magicJack mobile app, free calls worldwide

magicJack VocalTec, Ltd recently unveiled a new version of their cloud-based communication application that’s been rebranded as magicApp and has been made available to Android users. The updated magicApp offers free worldwide over-the-top calling and more streamlined account activation as well as a refreshed look and user experience.

The app’s old icon, which simply said “Talk free” in white lettering atop a green background (you can see it here) has been retired in favor of the blue icon you see above.

magicApp is already in use by almost 7 million users, growth that has been driven largely by word of mouth. The company revealed that it will begin its first digital and social marketing and consumer awareness campaign for magicApp beginning this month.

”Over the last 90 days our app development, design and marketing team has defined a comprehensive roadmap for future feature and service enhancements to the magicApp,” said Tim McDonald, COO of magicJack. “This release reflects the first steps in our aggressive strategy to more effectively leverage our valuable mobile platform. Over the coming months we intend to release incremental, value add features enhancing what is already a compelling global service.”

magicApp allows you to stay connected internationally at “ultra-low” rates

In addition to free unlimited local and long distance calling to the U.S. and Canada and free unlimited international calling between any magicJack number globally, magicApp also provides calling rates to international mobile phone numbers and landlines that the company says are “ultra-low” and works over 3G, 4G, and WiFi connections.

If you’re a current magicJack user, you’ll be able to use your current phone number on the app, and those who don’t have the service will be able to active new service through magicApp.

The free magicApp is now available for Android and iOS devices.
