Back in August 2009 I did a guest appearance on the VoIP Users Conference speaking about VoIP clients for mobile telephones. I briefly touched on to a few offerings for the iPhone and iPod Touch (a.k.a. i-Devices). This inspired Randy a.k.a @voipusers to do a review of a few of the available offerings on i-Devices.
His article, along with my Fianceè buying herself an iPhone, prompted me to take a closer look at a few of the offerings available.
I have given SIP clients on the iPhone and iPod Touch a generic name: iVoIP Client(s). Likewise, an iDevice is a generic term for both the iPod Touch and the iPhone.
The following clients have been tested:
- iPico from MailVision Ltd
- iSIP from VNET Corporation
- WeePhone from Justin Bray
- Acrobits Softphone from Acrobits
- Media5-fone from Media5 Corporation
For completeness I have also taken a quick look at the SIP function in both Fring and Nimbuzz, two free (as in beer) offerings available for the iDevices.
