Goober Networks Drives the Evolution of mVoIP With the Launch of ChatCube -- an All-in-One Solution Empowering Users With Free Calling & Chat and Much MoreChatCube Delivers Unsurpassed Capabilities for HD-Quality Calling to Any Landline, Mobile Phone and ChatCube User, Chat, Photo/Video Sharing, Voicemail, Call Forwarding, Push Notification and, Soon, Video Calling (March 20, 2012)
DOVER, DE and MAINZ, GERMANY -- (Marketwire) -- 03/20/12 -- Goober Networks, the only complete Unified Communications solution provider, today announces the launch of its mobile VoIP solution, ChatCube. Much more than a free mVoIP calling and chat app, ChatCube provides users with a rich feature set including HD-quality VoIP calling, auto-sync contact management, photo/video sharing, voicemail, call forwarding, push notification and, coming soon, video calling.
Initially available for Apple's iOS, including the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, ChatCube will be available on multiple mobile and desktop operating systems and platforms later this year. It is available now for free in Apple's App Store.
ChatCube represents the evolution of mobile VoIP from apps that only provide limited functionality to an all-in-one solution for users. It combines features and functionality found disparately in other mVoIP offerings, plus adds several unique and powerful capabilities, and is packaged into one, elegant and easy-to-use product.
"The mobile VoIP market is clearly booming, yet, besides a few offerings with early-adoption penetration, there is no clear leader grabbing major market share because they are all working within their own silos," said Peter Uhlich, goober Networks' CEO. "Integration is lacking with the current mVoIP apps. They rely on users and all of their friends and contacts being members of the same club, which makes it harder than it needs to be for users. ChatCube allows users to auto-sync all their contacts, even their social network friends, and make calls to non-ChatCube users. It brings all these features into a single communication solution, which represents a significant step forward in the mVoIP space."
Uhlich continued, "We believe that ChatCube -- with all its features and capabilities that others don't have -- will raise the bar in this space and finally answer the demand from consumers and businesses for universal, cross-platform quality and free mobile calling."
ChatCube allows users to make 100 percent free calls and chat worldwide to other ChatCube users over Wi-Fi, EDGE, 3G and 4G networks. It delivers "universal" HD-quality calling to any landline or mobile phone, including non-ChatCube users. Global flat-rate calling plans are available for non-ChatCube-to-ChatCube calls at rates up to 50 percent cheaper than current offerings. A free $1 calling credit is available upon signup.
Upon their initial introduction to ChatCube, users will immediately notice and appreciate the cleanly designed and intuitive interface, which provides quick access to specific functions with the least amount of "taps." Removing complexity from the user experience is a deliberate design choice that reinforces goober Network's mission to simplify and unify communications.
Key capabilities offered during this initial rollout include simplified contact management that makes it easy to auto-sync contacts, add Facebook friends, access a user directory, locate nearby ChatCube users and add users through "shake," a function that allows contact information to be exchanged when nearby users shake their phones. ChatCube also supports push notification, photo/video sharing and sending voice messages, contacts and locations. Other capabilities include an "is typing" feature and profile picture selection.
During the next several months, a series of additional capabilities -- including video calling and functionality related to enhanced messaging, cloud sync, additional OS and platform support, and an innovative smartphone plan -- will be introduced as part of the strategic rollout of this all-in-one solution.
Founded in 2006, goober Networks' voice and video over IP and messaging technology is deployed in more than 150 million softclients. The company's technology is used monthly by more than 50 million active users on all IP platforms. Goober Networks has built a carrier-grade voice and video over IP backbone consisting of more than 50 servers deployed worldwide, all powered by industry-proven HD voice and video codecs that run on any available IP platform to ensure consistent, quality communication, regardless of the user's location and even when calls are made over low-bandwidth networks.
Uhlich added, "We believe in simplicity of communication. We believe in Network Intelligence that simplifies the digital world, empowering users to communicate the way they want and when they want. We are about unifying networks and ways of communicating, and freedom of communication. We believe that the way traditional Telco companies work will change, and goober Networks will be driving this change with ChatCube."
