Very Usable

Easy setup under settings with the exception that it doesn't hide your password? This being the reason for 4 stars not 5. Other than this I would like to see a better dial pad graphically more fitting with the iPhone UI.

Everything else is perfect, the layout & most importantly the calls are clean & crisp.

Great SIP Client

Along my path I’ve tried a bunch of SIP clients, including the paid ones (like Zoiper or 3cx), and I think this one is one of the best. 1. It works without quirks, 2. It is open source. 3. UI is convenient
