    Our second Voice App Igniter Challenge submission: CallSharing from FriendCaller and C2Call! See the CallSharing submission below.
Our idea is a super simple mobile conference service called CallSharing:

User creates the invite to the conference call through the CallSharing iPhone/Android app, it is send via email or text directly accessing the native address book, so it is easy to arrange the conference, user can tweet or share the link as well.
We assign every CallSharing user a personal phone number to dial in, so you always call the same number, no access codes, no searching for the right number to call.
User calls out, and since the user accepts the conference invite, the system knows how to route the call to the right conference, therefore no access code is required.
This concept goes further, the user can get the invite to the call via SMS from his dial-in number, so it would work even on feature phone, black berry, symbian and more. The user can accept or decline via txt response


There is another component as well related to our patented browsing technology, we can analyse the device OS that opens the link and offer the best option to call in, including a VoIP option. The attractive part is the unique and permanent dial in number, it becomes simply a contact that invites to the call, who can be called, so conference calling becomes much more natural to the user as it now.




We have the complete technology stack: the call-in, messaging, conferencing and inetwork would be the ideal partner.

    Thank you for your support! - The Voxeet Team

    We’ve all experienced the frustration and strain of following a conversation on a conference call. Struggling to hear through choppy voice quality, background noise and sound cutting out, when two or more people talk at the same time. It’s impossible to know who is talking, and the whole dial-in and pass code experience is terribly archaic and frustrating – especially if you have to jump off and dial back in from your mobile phone.

    Existing audio conferencing is still in the dark ages, relying on the same old technology invented over a century ago by Alexander Graham Bell - even with over 100 billion minutes used each year.


    What you want is an affordable business-quality teleconference service that makes talking as natural as sitting around a table – with crystal-clear sound, simultaneous conversations, and visual and audio cues to know who’s talking.

    It’s time to follow Bell’s philosophy and once again “leave the beaten track behind” with Natural Conferencing from Voxeet. Once you’ve tried Voxeet, you’ll never go back.

    Our Natural Conferencing technology is unique and distinct from anything else in the market in three ways:

    • One, high-definition audio and sound algorithms reduce background noise and echo, eliminate over-talk and boost sound quality for crystal-clear audio. It’s so immersive and sounds so good that you’ll forget about the call and focus on the conversation.
    • Two, 3D immersive sound and visual cues always let you know who’s talking. For example, you can put the decision maker’s avatar on your right so when he speaks, you will hear his voice coming from your right side and see visual cue that he’s talking.
    • Finally, you can initiate conference calls with one click, and when you’re on the go you can transfer the call from your computer to your cell phone with a single click so you don’t have to hang up and redial.

    Voxeet’s revolutionary technology makes old conference calls a thing of the past, making it possible to communicate more effectively and increase your productivity.


    Voxeet won a DEMOgod award at DEMO Spring 2012, where we were named Forbes & PC Magazine Favorites. We are weeks away from launching Voxeet for both iPhones and Android smart phones with the same high-quality, 3D-immersive sound and one-click transfer that won us such accolades earlier this year. We’ve also added a “whisper mode” to support private one-on-one side conversations during conference calls.

    With our Mac version coming up, making us a true cross-platform application, we now want to make Voxeet UNIVERSAL so that anybody can call in and participate in a Voxeet conference call.

    This is where a partnership with iNetworks comes in! Winning the Voice App Igniter Challenge will help extend our technology to support dial-up from landlines and cell phones, making it possible to completely replace old-style audio conferencing with Voxeet. Imagine the possibilities when you have the power and simplicity of Natural Conferencing to make your team collaboration and customer conferences as clear and productive as face-to-face meetings. Having access to 1 million free phone numbers will propel Voxeet to another level and make Voxeet ubiquitous while helping millions of people enjoy natural conversations, dramatically improving their collaboration experience.  

    Here’s a link to the award winning DEMO Spring 2012 presentation with the 3D immersive sound. Please use a headset.

    Happy natural conferencing!
