Revolutionary Free Call App nanu on a Mission to End Phone Bills

-- nanu provides billions of people in cities, rural areas and developing markets with access to free calls on any network, even on 2G.

SINGAPORE, Aug. 5, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's first completely free and truly mobile call app - nanu - launched today, with the aim of revolutionizing the telecom industry by offering free quality calls to everyone, everywhere.

Unlike conventional voice apps such as Skype and Viber that only work in high bandwidth 3G/4G/Wifi environments, nanu can be used on any network including 2G thus allowing it to provide quality calls where other apps cannot. As the majority of the world's mobile phones still use 2G, this means billions of people in rural areas and developing markets will have access to free calls for the first time.

Furthermore, unlike conventional voice apps, nanu provides all calls completely for free, including calls to non nanu users such as landlines. To do this, nanu inserts an unintrusive short advert to play over the ringtone while you are waiting for the call to be picked up. The revenue from the advert allows nanu to subsidize the cost of the call so you can make calls completely for free, even to landlines or mobile phones that don't use nanu.

nanu believes that everyone around the world has the right to make free phone calls and is on a mission to end phone bills once and for all.

To join the mission, you just need to download nanu. Once installed, you can make unlimited calls to friends, family and anyone you want to call anywhere in the world who have also installed the app. You will also be given a limited number of free minutes to call non - nanu users and share the app with them.

The more people use nanu, the more free calls nanu can give away so that eventually, nanu aims to offer unlimited free calls anywhere, including to non - nanu users.

To kick-start the mission, from today, nanu is offering the first one million users, free unlimited nanu-to-nanu calls and also 15 free minutes of nanu to non - nanu calls across 73 global destinations.

nanu launches on Android, with the iPhone and other devices to follow very shortly. nanu will also be available for Mac and Windows.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now.
