Truphone has updated its application for iPad. The new version lets users place and receive calls over their 3G network and includes Truphone’s new Instant Messenger feature which was already built into the iPhone version.

With the addition of 3G calling, users now have the option to make calls as part of their data package when out of Wi-Fi range, using 3G. This feature hit the iPhone version of the app back in June.

Truphone’s Instant Messenger feature which integrates with Facebook, Skype, AIM, GoogleTalk, and MSN, lets users chat via IM with other Truphone users.

Competitors to Truphone include Skype, Fring and Vonage, which recently launched its app for iPhone and Android.

To be honest these Voip competitors are becoming indistinguishable in the “voip app” war, as one player adds another competitor’s ‘unique feature’ almost every day. It somehow seems more like a race to the bottom than something truly disruptive, or am I wrong?

    A good voip app should have both WiFi and 3G compatibility. Freephoo has both and i am so happy that i am using it. Very impressed with the connectivity, smoothness and call clarity. I heard that thier international pack has been extended to Pakistan, Russia and Kuwait.
