WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Feb.11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Pervasip Corp.'s (OTCQB:
PVSP) wholly-owned subsidiary, VoX Communications, a cloud-based voice and
video communications solutions, apps and services provider, has now added free
video calling to its Android Mobile VoIP calling application. The app is
immediately available to all Amazon Kindle devices via the Amazon App Store.
Over a billion devices currently have access to the VoX VoIP app via the
Google Play Store, the Samsung App Store and now the Amazon App Store. All
subscribers also have access to the VoX "Pay And Go" subscription-free calling
plans. The subscription-free plan called "Pay and Go" can be topped up with
amounts as little as one dollar and enables calling anywhere in the world
without paying a monthly subscription fee.
VoX'sChief Information Officer, Mark Richards, noted, "We continue to spend
our time and energy working to make our app the leading app available on
Android, and are pleased to finally release a video version, as promised to
our shareholders some time ago. We are releasing the app to the Amazon store
with a video plug-in for very good reasons.
First, we applaud Google's great vision for the VP8 codec and we support that
codec. Also, we are very aware that VP8, specifically under Jelly Bean,
supports hardware abstraction for the encoding and decoding of video. Coupled
with a multi-core processor, we feel that the video experience is now ready
for prime time. We are confident that given the above ingredients, the call
quality and user experience will be superior to other video apps currently
We chose to load the video application into the Amazon store as our first step
so that we can garner feedback from devices that support the required
experience. All being well, we plan to release the app to the Google Play
Store as soon as we predict an exceptional and sustainable user experience.
We are expecting an even higher conversion from free to paid subscribers,
currently at a rate between 5% and 8% on any given day for our voice app. We
are also aware that once launched into the Google Play Store where a billion
disparate devices 'hang out,' we need to be prepared operationally for that
potential growth while continuing to maintain the user experience of our
flagship product. Not all devices, and certainly not all VoIP, are created
"We are very confident that Google has planted the technology seeds for video
to finally go mainstream in 2013 and WebRTC will only serve to accelerate that
adoption," added Richards.
A VoX user can subscribe entirely on the phone or tablet and choose a U.S.
phone number without leaving the interface, which makes the sign up process
more elegant than many competitors. The Mobile VoIP paid plans are a low cost
of entry for a high quality and reliable mobile VoIP service offering. New
subscribers can download the app for a free 60 minute trial and make calls to
any country on the unlimited calling list or sign up for the "Pay And Go" plan
for as little as a dollar, literally a "Pay as you go" plan with no monthly
A Juniper Research Report projects that mobile video calling users will exceed
160 Million by 2017.
