Truphone launches 3.0 for the iPod touch

Following hot on the heels of the launch of Truphone 3.0 for the Apple iPhone, Truphone has launched Truphone 3.0, a major new upgrade to its mobile VoIP application for the Apple iPod touch.

The new version builds upon the success of previous versions of the VoIP application for the iPod, enhancing users’ instant messaging and account management experience, faster than ever before, and delivering a new standard for call quality.

Among the many improvements in Truphone 3.0 are increased ease of use, speed of function response, intuitiveness and simplicity, all designed to enhance the users’ experience. Further, Truphone has improved voice quality making the app for the iPod better than it’s ever been before.

Using Truphone’s integrated messaging tool that unifies all IM communities in a single place, users can now simply manage all their IM communication from a single page within the application, eliminating the need to constantly jockey between different applications or even different pages within an application. IM services currently supported include Skype, MSN Messenger, AIM, Yahoo! Messenger and Google Talk.

Said Geraldine Wilson, CEO Truphone: “Following the successful launch of Truphone 3.0 for the iPhone we were keen to follow up as quickly as possible for all our iPod touch customers. That’s what we’ve done to ensure that they can take advantage of all our new improvements: improved UI, account management and call quality. We believe Truphone 3.0 sets a new benchmark in terms of quality and performance.

“With these improvements, we believe Truphone 3.0 is the best application to turn your iPod touch into a WiFi phone and staying in touch with all of your IM communities,” she concluded.
