O'Grady's PowerPick 2005The Gizmo Project is a Mac OS X Voice-over-IP application brought to you by the SIPphone team. Gizmo project is a better VoIP client than frontrunner Skype, which I wrote about in my February 2005 column for Macworld magazine Dialing for Less. Here are some reasons Gizmo Project is better than Skype:
1) Mac First
2) Same ease of use as Skype
3) Free Gizmo to Gizmo calling
4) Mega-cheap calling to regular phones
5) $5/month for a US or UK number (optional)
6) SIP standards based, which means we work with over 100 other SIP networks around the world
7) Call recording (Podcasters love this)
8) Free voicemail to email, with user selectable message
9) User selectable call hold music.
10) Better call quality than Skype
11) Call sound effects, like radio DJs have (Mac only coming in release in 48 hours)
12) Call forwarding to regular phone (Mac only now, in release in 48 hours)
13) Free conference calling, unlimited
14) Call blocking with customizable messages from polite to rude (upcoming version)
15) VoIP hardware support
16) Better User Interface than Skype
17) Killer NAT traversal
And tons more…
