Simply Dial

Recommended Posts


Although I'm a seasoned Android user, I've only just in the last week taken my first foray into app development. My first app is a very simple concept and advertises a service I've been running for almost ten years now: Simply Dial, ( market://details?id=com.stunshot.android.SimplyDial ).

Simply Dial is an instant dial service that allows you to make cheap international calls from the UK to destinations worldwide, starting at just 1p/min. There is no need to open an account, give any credit card details or get yet another bill through your door. All you need is a phone, the relevant instant dial access number and someone to call.

To use the app, choose your destination from the drop-down menu. You will be shown an access number and the per minute rate you will be charged. Although I've added an option to dial the number directly from your phone, please bear in mind that all rates shown are what you would pay if you called from a BT Residential landline on 20/04/2012 and include VAT. Individual call rates are subject to change at any time. Rates for calls made from mobiles and other service providers are likely to be considerably higher, so I highly recommend using the app to find the access number you need and then dial it from a landline. That said, I believe some networks include certain 08- numbers in their price plans - please check with your provider.

When you dial the appropriate access number for your destination, you will hear a prompt. At any time after this, dial your international number in full, including 00. Your call will be connected and the only charge you will see on your bill will be the call to the Simply Dial access number.

Please check out my app and provide feedback either through the Play Store or post directly to this forum. I'm quite excited about getting into Android development and am wondering what to take on for my next project. All feedback, both positive and negative, will be highly appreciated :)
