Switching from landlines to VoIP makes a lot of sense, given that VoIP is a much more versatile and feature-rich technology. With Voice Over the Internet Protocol as your main communication method, you can call and receive calls straight from your computer and even better, your smartphone. Our phones have become indispensable to us throughout the years and with them being becoming so capable and complex over time, we now rely on them more than ever.
We go online from our phones, we pay bills from our phone, we pay for groceries with our phone, we communicate through our phone and so on. All reputable VoIP providers offer mobile apps with their service and they usually have apps that are compatible with iOS and Android devices as well. PhonePower makes no exception.

The app has 49.64 MB and is as easy to install as any other app you download from Google Play or the App Store. You have to sign in or scan the QR code in order to get access to the app’s features.
The interface is ordinary and very straightforward. Not the ugliest, not the most attractive one either. In order for the app to be able to send you notifications, you have to let it access your contacts and grant some required permissions.
The app has some useful features to offer:

Whenever you want to access a recorded call or see the details of a certain call, such as time of call, duration, etc., you just go to the History section and access the information you want.
There are some crashes from time to time with the PhonePower mobile app, but overall, this app can be quite useful and productive.
