By Ad Hoc Labs, Inc
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Burner helps keep your personal phone number more private and secure, and now includes one free number for 7 days (for a limited time). Make calls and send texts from Burner phone numbers you control. Get as many numbers as you’d like, and burn any number, any time. Earn free credits for inviting your friends!
Named one of TIME Magazine's Top 50 Apps of 2013 and featured in Wired, Engadget, BoingBoing, Uncrate, Lifehacker, and many more.
Use Burner just like your regular phone number. All burners include:
• Incoming and outgoing voice calls
• Incoming and outgoing SMS
Burner is perfect any time you want to keep in touch, but may not want to give out your private, personal number. It's ideal for:
• Job searches
• Business cards
• Short-term projects
• Social networks (Twitter, Tumblr, Facebook, Foursquare, etc.)
What our users are saying:
"Great app to have!"
"Best all time app…hands down."
"You guys this app is amazing! Perfect and original, especially if you don't want strangers to have your real number. A+++++"
IMPORTANT: Not for iPad or iPod Touch. Phone calls use cell phone minutes. Burners are not free -- please review our pricing before purchasing. Area code availability varies. May not work with SMS shortcode services. No MMS. Not for 911 emergency services. Works in US and Canada only. Not available in Puerto Rico.
+++HOW IT WORKS+++
• Calls forward to and use your phone line (and cellular minutes)
• Text messages do not use your phone's SMS allowance
• Use credits to buy various types of Burners and extensions to Burners
• Burners can be extended, but only prior to their expiration.
• When you burn a number, it goes out of service and is deleted from your phone immediately.
• Burner numbers cannot be recovered.
• Burner numbers do not support MMS.
• Not for 911 or emergency calls.
In addition to your free sample burner, you can buy credits to create different types of Burner numbers.
Cost of credits:
• 3 Credits = $1.99
• 8 Credits = $4.99
• 15 Credits = $7.99
• 25 Credits = $11.99
You can use these credits to create new Burners, or extend existing ones so they don’t expire.
You may also purchase a Subscription Burner that gives you a number with unlimited texts and minutes, in addition to the ability to swap phone numbers.
• $4.99 / month
• Payment will be charged to iTunes Account at confirmation of purchase
• Subscription automatically renews unless auto-renew is turned off at least 24-hours before the end of the current period
• Account will be charged for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period, and identify the cost of the renewal
• Subscriptions may be managed by the user and auto-renewal may be turned off by going to the user's Account Settings after purchase
• No cancellation of the current subscription is allowed during active subscription period
What's New in Version 2.1.11
* General performance enhancements and bug fixes
Apps like this make smart phones worth owning. But I do have a couple gripes: I hate the way I have to buy points then buy a number with points! Just charge me some reasonable price for the number and call it good. Also, charging for minutes is gheto, why not just forward the call to my cell like google voice?
Great with a couple odd spots
Fantastic app, functions well, an essential for the cautious single in the online dating world or the craigslist bargain shopper. Needs a couple of small fixes for clarity-- curiously, "unlimited" numbers that read "don't expire" give you the option to extend them-- but otherwise well-designed.
Perfect for what I need
The price is right. Privacy is valued and user friendly. I'll need to check out my phone bill to see if I can give it that last star. I researched a lot of ways to privately call and text and so far I like burner best
