Best app to call India from Australia ?

I recently moved to Australia and Iím thinking of using VoIP based application instead of a calling card to keep in touch with my parents back in India. They live in a small town and use a 3G mobile connection without a data plan. There are so many applications out there but most of them require a working internet plan at both ends. Can someone please suggest an economical and reliable VoIP based app which I could use to call back home.

I would recommend Global Call more than Viber Out. It has cheaper rate and the quality, I would say, crystal clear.

VoIP apps are a lot more convenient than calling cards. Since your folks don’t have a working internet plan the best bet would be an International calling app. My personal favorite is an app named Global Call. I use it to make calls to both landline and mobile phones. The call rates are much cheaper than Skype and it also saves you the hassle of a subscription fee .It’s been more than 6 months since I’ve been using it .Integrates well with my mobile and the call quality is also pleasantly good.

Thanks for the input .I checked Viber Out rates online .It looks attractive but one of my colleagues using it tells me they are overcharging his credits and most of the calls get dropped within few seconds Ö..

Global Call is easy to locate on Google Play. Itís the one with the pink logo. Since they don't charge a subscription fee maybe you can just buy credits for few bucks and see how the call goes through. Just checked their FB page seems like they are giving out free double credits to new users http://www.globalcall-1plus1.com

I’m not sure whether I can share a link here . Anyways you can look for Global Call on Google Play or download it from their website. It’s the app with a pink logo. They also have a Facebook page where I get event updates .
