Apps for calling cards

 

Whether you just bought 5 new calling cards for a future use, or you just need to manage the collection of those you already used, there are different solutions. The classic one is paper; whether it is from an agenda or a bunch of paperwork kept together somehow, anyone can safely store information this way, no matter if it is random junk or important things that would be needed later. So, keeping all the calling cards' info randomly tucked and folded somewhere between scribble and books, is nothing new. Another option would be to rely on technology, which seems to be easier and slightly less likely to become a mess.

 

The apps for organizing your calling cards

 

Some things just can not be replaced, mimicked or simulated in any way, but for anything else, there may be an app, no exception for sorting out and managing the calling cards.

When calling abroad you may need a calling card. If you got more of them you might as well need a way to manage and store them so, there could be a software that you can try, to sort out your stuff.

One of the apps that you can get for iphone, is Calling Card Organizer. The price in app store is $4.99 and it lets you store and sort your calling cards' info, along with whatever else is needed – PINs or passwords. It also lets you manage contacts and make different links, so you know which card is needed for which of your numbers. For additional details about the efficiency and possibilities, you can check app's reviews and comments.

Some other app is World Access Auto-Dialer, and it is available in iphone's app store. It can register and automatically dial the access codes, taking this task off the user's knuckles, and it also doesn't need any PIN or card numbers. There is, however, the limitation that one could only use a certain type of calling cards, supported by the app, and it also doesn't allow wi-fi calling.

If that's what you're looking for, there are some more apps out there on the internet, each with their own updates and bugfixes, which can be found by doing a bit of searching.
