Connecting with friends and family living in different countries can be difficult and expensive. And trying to build this into an easy to use, everyday app just like a regular phone call is even harder.
But for the team at Rebtel, helping people connect with their loved ones is their daily business and vision of the company. Rebtel is the popular communications app that helps millions of people connect with cheap international calls and, since 2008, has become one of the top 5 international calling apps with much of its user base being people living away from their home country.
With Rebtel, users can make international calls for a fraction of the cost by using data calling rather than regular international phone calls. Sinch caught up with Anna Å Mathson from the Rebtel team in their Stockholm office to find out more.
Rebtel use Sinch’s voice and instant messaging functionality to power their app. Users buy calling credit and make a call just like a normal phone, taking advantage of local minutes and data to make the call. There is also an added chat feature, which lets users send instant messages for free. Overall, this is an app that actuals like a normal phone but with the cost savings.
“When millions of active users want to call and text friends and family, the service needs to be at its best, all of the time”, Anna told us. “Sinch gives us that mix of fantastic quality and solid reliability that an app like Rebtel and its users demand!”
Recently, Rebtel have updated their popular iPad app with a total redesign and are looking to expand their user base. Plus, the team are also working on a new project Sendly, helping people send money to friends and family across the world which has seen great growth and usage in a short period of time.
