Excellent app with a killer feature

SanJoseScott

This is a great app for family or enterprise use. Great voice quality, flexible options, nice integration with iPhone (and iPad), lovely user interface.

And: After some plowing through Acrobits’ wiki and scratching my head a little, I found it supports external provisioning. That’s wonderful: you can set up simple .xml provisioning profiles on a web server (or even in Dropbox’s public web folder) and give your users a click-link that, when clicked on their iDevice, will automatically set this application up. I’ve encouraged Acrobits to improve the description of how to do this, but if I figured it out you probably can too.

Really great app, and well worth the small amount of money it costs… especially considering the massive savings VoIP brings!

UPDATE: after several years I remain delighted with this app. Call quality, ease of use, iPhone-worthy design... first class stuff.

Needs work, not as good as Softphone

Billy Jingles

People on the other end are constantly complaining of choppy audio. It crashes frequently, one time it required a hard reset of my phone and when it booted back up all the sound settings for the iPhone 4 itself were set to Apple factory defaults. I also can't really see what this offers over their previous app Softphone. I can't use TCP with my Switchvox PBX so I am stuck using their push or proxy servers or running it in the background where it won't let the phone truly sleep. I am not keen on registering my phone to a third party server, especially one in a foreign country and when I have done it in the past I was almost immediately flooded with brute force attacks by various foreign IPs trying to register every possible extension to my PBX. So, using the "always on" option, my battery life is cut in half.

I usually don't condone plugging another app when reviewing and while I have been a long time fan of Acrobits Softphone for as needed use and not letting it run all the time, I must however say that if you want an app to leave running all the time and make your iPhone truly act like an extension of your PBX just the same as a desk phone, I would pass on either Acrobits apps and go with Bria from Counterpath. Never had anyone complain about call quality, it works all the time without crashing or resetting other iPhone options and it doesn't drain my battery anywhere near as fast. Oh and it's less expensive too.
