UK retailer Tesco has released a new Windows Phone app that brings cheap international calls and SMS. As an added incentive, you'll receive £1 credit for simply downloading the app.
Should you have family and friends located outside the UK, you'll be able to keep in touch through affordable high-quality voice calls, or for free if you have an app-to-app connection. Calls to over 200 countries kick off from 1p, but using Wi-Fi or data connections you'll be able to text and call for free to another phone with the app installed.
The app integrates with the People Hub to help make the experience convenient by not forcing you to remember numbers or take steps to import contacts. Should you shop at Tesco frequently and own a Clubcard, the app will reward you with points when you top-up.
Calls to the (03) access number are free for Tesco Mobile customers, but should be included in the inclusive allowance for those with other networks, but do check with your operator.
