I recently did a review on the Magic Jack Plus with favorable results. I have been a Magic Jack user for a few years. The original jack I got broke and I ended up not using it anymore.  Since I bought 5 years of service I wanted to be able to use it. When I founded the Magic Jack App for the Iphone/Ipod/Ipad I was excited. I no longer have a Iphone but do have a Ipad 2. The app is free and available at the app store.

Magic Jack App On Ipad 2

Once downloaded you follow the instruction for logging in. I use my account from my broken jack and now I have a huge phone in my Ipad 2. When I am within WiFi range my Magic Jack account will ring like a normal phone. The best part is my Ipad 2 is portable so when I travel I will have my phone with me. Magic Jack includes Canada and USA wide long distance so as long as I am near WiFi I can make and receive my calls. I tested my setup with my Ipad 2 wirelessly tethered to my Samsung Galaxy phone using the 3G and 4 G network with very good results. When doing this my Ipad 2 can be used anywhere there is cellular data coverage.  I would even say this app works better than my Magic Jack Plus I have as my home phone.

Magic Jack App Includes A Full Feature Phone

Like I said, I no longer have my Iphone so I couldn’t test the app with a regular phone and Magic Jack hasn’t release the app for the Android world yet but if it works as well as it does on my Ipad 2 I think regular cellular service are in trouble. Imagine no more air time or long distances charges. Running of a 3G or 4G network would allow you to move freely with the phone. When Magic Jack releases the app for the Android system I’ll be the first to get one.

Pros:
Free App
Portable with Iphone
No extra charges to use on your current account
Free long distance

Cons:
No app for Android OS (Big One)
