Peter Sisson, the founder and chief executive officer of Toktumi, a San Francisco-based VoIP startup, is excited. He was jumping with happiness when I spoke with him earlier today. Why? Because Apple just accepted the newest version (2.0) of his company’s mobile VoIP app, Line2. The app, which costs 99 cents, permits you to call and receive phone calls over both 3G and Wi-Fi networks.
What Toktumi has done is make a back end similar to that of Google Voice -but unlike Google, it's gotten Apple's blessing. It's one of the more absolute mobile VoIP apps currently available for download; I particularly like the fact that it permits you to receive calls straight to your mobile phone over a cellular network even if you don’t have 3G or Wi-Fi coverage.
It comes with its individual features such as conference calling, call waiting, call transfer and even voice mails - in other words, the service is similar to a virtual second line on your phone. The service costs $14.95 a month for unlimited calls in the Canada and U.S.
Toktumi, which launched at DEMO 2008, has had to traverse a hard path to get to where it is today, and Sisson is understandably excited about the kind of exposure the authorization from Apple of its app will bring. Sisson, a veteran of the VoIP business, sold his previous company, Teleo, to Microsoft.
