TalkShoe, a provider of internet topic-based voice conversations, discussions and live interactive podcasts, has announced the availability of ShoePhone, an easy to use service for unlimited group calling.
Users of ShoePhone can simultaneously text-chat, and Talkcasts can be recorded and stored on TalkShoe’s website for later listening and podcasting. Talkcasts can be done instantly, or scheduled in advance. ShoePhone is free to use.
ShoePhone uses voice-over-IP (VoIP) technology to create calls. Unlike other VoIP services, ShoePhone users can connect with other ShoePhone users as well as to people using standard telephones, mobile phones, other VoIP services such as Skype, and 3rd party VoIP clients such as SJphone and Gizmo. This is because ShoePhone is based on a telco-grade conferencing system unlike other server-based VoIP-only services which have limited conferencing capabilities.
Dave Nelsen, CEO and founder of TalkShoe, said: People want to talk. And people want to talk about something. TalkShoe and ShoePhone together are a great tool for social networking. Our goal is to bring topic-based interactive voice discussions to the masses.
