Ratings and Reviews
Far better than Bria
Have had to stop recommending Bria to my cloud Voip customers since they moved to their subscription model that promises features at extra cost that are included for the one-off fee for Groundwire. However, I wish I had found Groundwire years ago because it performs so much better, especially when it comes to incoming calls. Doesn’t matter whether the app is in foreground mode, background mode, in lock-screen mode or even not yet started, this app will ring as normal, just needing a swipe to answer. None of the notification banner, fingerprint or passcode entry, that Bria has which means you almost inevitably miss the call with all the messing about. And the battery life isn’t affected too much - brilliant, I’m happy with the user interface, very similar to native iPhone app.
Developer Response ,
Thank you very much for your review!
I tried almost all the free SIP apps, and then a trial of Bria and had no luck (I almost gave up on iOS SIPs altogether).
With ground wire it really is native, when you get a call it’s just like a regular call even when you close down the app as if some other server is taking care of the job and not the app and sending it to apple. This is more evident because after the call the app remains unopened, it’s the only app I’ve ever seen that is like this — it’s comparable to sending WhatsApp messages on the iOS messaging service.
The best Softphone app by a long shot
Been using Bria for many years for our business. That is UNTIL now. Came across Groundwire and it is outstanding, the push feature works perfect and never misses a call. Therefore because it works with push it has no effect on the battery.
It’s a shame I hadn’t come across this app years ago.
Well done guys.
Just need to sort a slight bug with speaker phone staying on with some incoming calls. But I have already contacted customer service who replied within 24 hours saying a fix should be on the way soon as they are aware of the bug.
All in all a great app and well worth the money.
