Hey all, apparently Viber the VoIP app that is on iOS is coming to Android sometime this month.

Pretty sure Fring and Nimbuzz are awful for battery usage and Viber uses push

Hi,

This is an official representative of Viber Media.

That's true - Viber is coming to Android, and we expect it to happen within a month or a month and a half.
Initially we intended it to be ready earlier, but as you know, technological developments tend to be delayed due to unexpected obstacles. We, as a company that cares about users’ experience, prefer releasing a fully-working product a little later than expected, rather than releasing it as early as possible, yet buggy and disappointing.

We'll keep you posted :)

Viber.

tanivula: Can you use Viber as a SIP client?


I'm not sure I fully understand your meaning, but in general Viber is solely used to provide a peer-to-peer service.
2 users who installed Viber would be able to talk for free (and soon also send SMS messages for free).

Viber.
