International calling app Ringo which allows low cost calling without the use of an Internet connection has been launched in India. The company claims that it offers international calls at 70 per cent cheaper than mobile telephone service providers and 20 per cent cheaper than calls made on Skype and Viber through the Internet. Users can download the app for free from Android, Windows and iOS app stores.

According to a press release by the company, Ringo does not rely on data or WiFi connectivity to make calls. When an Indian Ringo user calls US, the app converts the international calls into local calls and connects them through the Ringo server.

Bhavin Turakhia, CEO of Ringo stated in a release, “We believe our app will change the way India communicates with the world. In this country, reliable internet connectivity that can support VOIP calling is still far away. Ringo provides the perfect solution for Indian consumers who want to stay in touch with their family, friends and colleagues abroad reliably and at a low-cost.”

India is the 4th largest originator of ISD calls in the world, after USA, UK and Germany. According to reports consumers in India spend well over $2 billion annually in making international calls. Ringo calling app will offer huge cost savings for consumers.

“The app is a result of significant technology investments, global carrier partnerships and strategic relationships,” says Bhavin. “We believe that communication should be easy and inexpensive. We envision a world where cost is not even a criteria for communication with anyone anywhere around the globe.”
