Free app lets you instantly create free conference calls anywhere on earth.
SAN FRANCISCO, March 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Socialdial, Inc. today announced the release of CrowdCall, a new, free mobile app for both iPhone and Android that lets you instantly create free conference or group calls with up to 20 people anywhere on earth. Users simply select the people they want to include in their conference from their contacts list, touch the call button and everyone on the list is called and connected to a group call. You can include anyone in your contact list in the call, they don't need to have the app to participate. The free app can be downloaded at http://socialdial.com/crowdcall/download.php.
"We wanted to make it easy for anyone to create a conference or group call right from their iPhone or Android phone," said Randy Adams, CEO of Socialdial, Inc. "It's great to connect with friends, family or business associates in a group call, but it has always been complicated and expensive to set up a call, especially from your phone. We are changing all that with CrowdCall, the easiest, free way to stay in touch. No dial-in numbers, no PIN codes to remember, just touch one button and everybody gets connected."
Instead of creating a dial-in number and PIN codes, CrowdCall simply calls everyone on the conference list when the user presses the call button. Participants receive a call from the user and simply answer and press the "1" key and are instantly connected to the conference. CrowdCall is ideal for families spread out across the world, especially for those with loved ones in military service abroad. CrowdCall is also great for connecting with your friends at any social event or to invite them over for a party. And of course CrowdCall is great for businesses interested in setting up a quick ad hoc conference call at a moments notice.
Socialdial offers CrowdCall free to everyone on iPhone and Android and is available in the Apple App Store and Android Market. The only cost incurred in using CrowdCall is a local call from the user to the CrowdCall server which simply uses local minutes on your phone plan.
