Chances are if you are a human being with a computer you have probably used, or at least heard of Skype. This is an example of VOiP software, or in layman's terms, internet-based phone or video chatting. The problem with Skype and other VOiP software programs though is that they can get pretty convoluted when it comes to setting them up or configuring your settings. Unless you are particularly computer savvy you might be dissuaded by having to sign up for, and register an account for the service. Excessive passwords become a burden and constant logging in becomes a pain.
Viber App for Desktop (VOiP Software) helps to solve that problem by offering a free VOiP service without the hassles of owning an account. You can actually download Viber, install it on your PC and phone, have it sync to your contacts automatically, and begin free HD video chatting right away without having to give up your email address, first born child, or eternal soul. Everything else is pretty much a wash actually. Viber does a fine job as a means to make phone or video calls for free, but the fact that you don't need an account and it will automatically sync your contacts is the best thing about it. With that said, it's not the big kid on the block so you might have to do some recruiting among your circle of people to get them to download the product to use as well.
You need to have the mobile app first because Viber does require a mobile number to operate on your desktop. Once set up you can send free text messages, photo messages, video messages and share locations with other users. Users can also make free HD-quality calls to other Viber users on iPhone®, Android™, Windows Phone, Blackberry®, Windows®, Mac, Symbian, Nokia S40 and Bada devices. You can do all of this over a 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.
If you can convince your people to switch away from Skype, Google, Facetime, or any of the other countless VOiP applications they may have, then you might just have yourself a winner. With 200 million users and counting, Viber is on its way up in the marketplace for good reason.
