Pinger, the leading iOS app for unlimited free texting and calling in the U.S. has today made its debut in Canada and is now available for download in the Canadian App Store for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The free app is also one of the top 5 iOS apps of all time in U.S.

With Pinger’s free iOS app, iPad and iPod touch owners can also enjoy free calling and texting to other mobile phones. The app also adds a free phone line to iPhones, allowing users tp text and call for free to any phone in the US and Canada, including smartphones, landlines and basic mobile phones. Additionally, Pinger offers totally free texting to another 35 countries.

Here is the iTunes description:


Still paying for text messaging and voice calls? It’s time to get the USA’s #1 free texting and calling app, available for the first time in Canada. It’s free to download and free to use. Whoever said nothing in life is free never tried Pinger! 


With Pinger you can call or text any phone number, even if they don’t have Pinger and even if they don’t have a smartphone! 
• Call or text your grandmother’s non-smartphone in Vancouver–FREE
• Call any restaurant in Toronto to make reservations–FREE.
• Text a co-worker in Montreal or New York as much as you want–FREE
• Messenger apps like WhatsApp only work for text messages or calls between people using the app. And only when they have a smartphone.


Now you don’t need to know what messenger apps your friends, family or co-workers use. Pinger does it all. Just use their landline or mobile phone number and your texts and calls are 100% free. It’s that simple.


When your friends have Pinger talking and texting gets even better. The calls are in HD, so they sound great. And you and your friends get unlimited free calls (talk as long as you like) and unlimited free texts (goodbye 160 character limit!) to and from one another, anywhere in the world. 


You get your own real phone number which you can use to call and text other real phone numbers in Canada and the US. Texting is always unlimited. Incoming calls are always free. Earn free minutes for outbound calling. There’s an option to buy cheap minutes, too.

    Sounds biased but if this came from Apple I would be more inclined to use it. What this company is offering sounds too good to be true.

    If you think it’s too good to be true, you have low standards.
    This isn’t new, there are other apps already that do the same thing.
    textPlus: gives you free texting and calling
    Dell Voice: gives you free calling
    magicJack: gives you free calling

  • “Earn free minutes for outbound calling. There’s an option to buy cheap minutes, too.”

    All this “FREE” is confusing, it’s not free if you have to buy minutes through in app purchases. Does anyone know how many free minutes you get?

  • K3

    WTF does that mean by low standards? Yes there are others that offer the same my point is are you signing any privacy agreement stating that they cannot use your information in anyway that they would like to? ( Think of this current UDID situation ).
    In addition do you know if they are prohibited to listen in on your calls or view your actions on your mobile? In a world of business nothing is for free.

  • 20 free minutes… you can buy minutes at 100 min for $1.99, 400 min for $9.99 or 1000 min for $18.99… notice that 100min deal is better than the 400min?

    App store reviews are scathing calling it “bait and switch”advertising. I would like to hear Usman comments on these reviews.
