PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Like any true geek who's addicted to online presence, a VoIP SIP, Twitter, and a multi-protocol IM application are the first kinds of apps I am trying to locate when jumping smartphone platforms. The iPhone is currently my platform of choice, and the AppStore has its share of such communication applications. So I decided to give a whirl to Acrobits' Softphone, set it up with Gizmo5 and Google Voice, and use it to call my family in Greece or more rarely, my husband at work. Update: New version is out, fixing most of the things mentioned in the review below, and implementing PUSH.

no, it can't. No VoIP phone in the App Store can, it's Apple regulation. Unfortunately.

Although I discourage the use of these closed platforms, maybe someone should make a VoIP app that encapsulates it in an encrypted VPN. :-)
