I'm using 2talk connect on my iphone, just wondering if there are any better apps for voip.

I haven't used it for a while and see it has been updated. Previously when I was using it I had issues with it but maybe it has gotten more reliable with the update.

I find the 2talk app works fine. Voice quality is excellent. I only have three minor issues with it:

1) If you don't use it for a while it will lose registration (perhaps iOS freeing up memory by closing the app?)
2) When you get a call the notification is a bit clumsy (but I think it's the best they can go given iOS' restrictions on third party apps)
3) The UI is pretty old and could do with an iOS8 themed refresh

Bria





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

The 2Talk app is best when using a 2Talk trunk.

I think you will find if you connect with something like Bria you will see registration dropping and find you miss alot of calls. The 2Talk app uses TLS to get around NAT and firewalls present in the mobile networks.

Edit: Of course you could configure TLS on Bria but I would suggest if you have to ask what other apps are around then this may be a bit tricky.

I've been using the 2talk app on Skinny for a couple of months and find that the registration keeps dropping. Screen says registration in process. Any ideas of what could be causing this? All the settings are set to default.

Probably just your mobile putting the radio to sleep at an attempt to save power.

I have been experimenting with various apps for 2talk on my Android phone and the one that has come up tops is the Adoresoftphone app which I have found works the best for me. Adore have also got a softphone app for the iphone so you might like to give that a try. It has a nice looking dialler and easy to configure.
