    Without a doubt, google hangouts for voice/video call. Both you and whoever you're calling, have to be with google +

    When installed, click on icon >click on person you wish to exchange with > click on camera and off you go.

    We've used it on phones/tablet & laptop. As for clarity, when we're speaking/viewing family, we hear every sound and that's with a 2yr old chattering at the same time.

    I.o.w. you need to be in Google's walled garden. This easily disqualifies Hangouts from the top 10 for me. I avoid both Hangouts and + like the plague.

    My fav VoIP app is Viber.

    You don't need to be in their "walled garden" because the applications are available on the iPhone and desktop as well. My main issue with Hangouts is that it allows voice calling on the iPhone but not on Android. I primarily use Skype but it's honestly mostly due to most of my friends using it. Once Hangouts can do voice calls on Android I'll probably use that.

    Freedom Pop is now offering free WiFi calling with a new phone number and their WiFi calling app. It works on WiFi and 4G so far and they give you 200 minutes, 500 Texts each month. Just like their regular phone plans you can upgrade to unlimited calling (WiFi Only) and unlimited texts for $5/month. A pretty good deal if you have limited minutes on you current plan and the app works quite a bit better than any other VOIP app I've used on my phone.

    How is magic jack on your battery? And do have any problems making ad receiving calls.

    I recently changed over to Android and calls came in but I couldn't hear and similar random problems. I quickly gave up and went to Skype but magic jack is more convenient..

    So how have your experiences been?

    It does tend to use a lot power if left running. I've never used it for receiving calls so don't know how well that aspect works.
