Plingm launches Arabic app
Stockholm, September 25, 2012
Plingm, a Swedish based mobile VoIP app, has launched its first Arabic version to benefit from the growing use of mobile VOIP in the Middle East.
Since January this year, the number of Plingm app-users has increased by 5,000 percent, a number which mirrors the increased use of mobile VoIP in the Middle East and Northern Africa, which is also comparable with the growth of Twitter users in the region, a statement said.
To meet this demand, Plingm has localised the app, which is available both on Android, iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, it said.
"We are witnessing an influx of new mobile VoIP users in Middle East and Northern Africa. With Plingm in Arabic, we believe that many more will discover the benefits of free communication," says Pandelis Eliopoulos, Plingm co-founder.
In Egypt's App Store, six of the top ten free social networking apps are VoIP apps. In Jordan the figure is five out of ten, and in both Saudi Arabia and Tunisia four VoIP apps are amongst top ten in the social networking category. In US, Finland and Sweden only two of the top ten free social networking apps are VoIP apps, it said. - TradeArabia News Service
