Dingtone is a free app that offers users a better experience when it comes to making calls and sending messages with their mobile devices. The app includes many outstanding features, some of which make this particular app stand out among the competitors in its crowded field.

Perhaps the most predominantly positive features of Dingtone is the ability of the user to easily call his or her Facebook friends through the app. In many ways, Dingtone combines the best aspects of several other apps into just one. With Dingtone, you can not only make phone calls and send text messages at no charge to you, but you can also

conduct conference call like those you would make on other programs such as Google+ or Skype. One particularly nice aspect of Dingtone that does help the app stand out quite a bit is the fact that users can link all of their mobile devices so that they all notify the user of an incoming call or text message. Overall, the call quality is very good when using this app.

In addition to pretty standard features like free calling and messaging services, the app also allows users to share videos, images, and even their current location with those closest to them. The visual voicemail option gives users the option of reading their voicemails instead of listening to them.

Pros:

  • Makes calls and sends texts for free.
  • Host conference calls.
  • Share videos, photos, and location information.

Cons:

  • The use of other apps can interrupt this app's connection causing calls to be send directly to voicemail.

The best calling and texting app is getting even better!

1. A new exciting game to win up to 1000 credits.

2. Extra bonus credits for checking in continuously.

3. Local and international calls with crystal clear connection.

4. Choose caller id for every call.

5. Recall messages already sent.

Potentially dangerous permissions

  • ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access approximate location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION.
  • ACCESS_FINE_LOCATION: Allows an app to access precise location. Alternatively, you might want ACCESS_COARSE_LOCATION.
  • CALL_PHONE: Allows an application to initiate a phone call without going through the Dialer user interface for the user to confirm the call.
  • CAMERA: Required to be able to access the camera device.
  • GET_ACCOUNTS: Allows access to the list of accounts in the Accounts Service.
  • READ_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to read the user's call log.
  • READ_CONTACTS: Allows an application to read the user's contacts data.
  • READ_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to read from external storage.
  • READ_PHONE_STATE: Allows read only access to phone state, including the phone number of the device, current cellular network information, the status of any ongoing calls, and a list of any PhoneAccounts registered on the device.
  • READ_SMS: Allows an application to read SMS messages.
  • RECEIVE_SMS: Allows an application to receive SMS messages.
  • RECORD_AUDIO: Allows an application to record audio.
  • SEND_SMS: Allows an application to send SMS messages.
  • WRITE_CALL_LOG: Allows an application to write (but not read) the user's call log data.
  • WRITE_CONTACTS: Allows an application to write the user's contacts data.
  • WRITE_EXTERNAL_STORAGE: Allows an application to write to external storage.

Other permissions

  • ACCESS_LOCATION_EXTRA_COMMANDS: Allows an application to access extra location provider commands.
  • ACCESS_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to access information about networks.
  • ACCESS_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to access information about Wi-Fi networks.
  • BLUETOOTH: Allows applications to connect to paired bluetooth devices.
  • BROADCAST_STICKY: Allows an application to broadcast sticky intents. These are broadcasts whose data is held by the system after being finished, so that clients can quickly retrieve that data without having to wait for the next broadcast.
  • CHANGE_CONFIGURATION: Allows an application to modify the current configuration, such as locale.
  • CHANGE_NETWORK_STATE: Allows applications to change network connectivity state.
  • CHANGE_WIFI_STATE: Allows applications to change Wi-Fi connectivity state.
  • DISABLE_KEYGUARD: Allows applications to disable the keyguard if it is not secure.
  • EXPAND_STATUS_BAR: Allows an application to expand or collapse the status bar.
  • GET_TASKS: This constant was deprecated in API level 21. No longer enforced.
  • INSTALL_SHORTCUT: Allows an application to install a shortcut in Launcher.
  • INTERNET: Allows applications to open network sockets.
  • MODIFY_AUDIO_SETTINGS: Allows an application to modify global audio settings.
  • MODIFY_PHONE_STATE: Allows modification of the telephony state - power on, mmi, etc. Does not include placing calls.

  • READ_SYNC_SETTINGS: Allows applications to read the sync settings.
  • RECEIVE_BOOT_COMPLETED: Allows an application to receive the ACTION_BOOT_COMPLETED that is broadcast after the system finishes booting. If you don't request this permission, you will not receive the broadcast at that time. Though holding this permission does not have any security implications, it can have a negative impact on the user experience by increasing the amount of time it takes the system to start and allowing applications to have themselves running without the user being aware of them. As such, you must explicitly declare your use of this facility to make that visible to the user.
  • RESTART_PACKAGES: This constant was deprecated in API level 8. The restartPackage(String) API is no longer supported.
  • SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW: Allows an app to create windows using the type TYPE_SYSTEM_ALERT, shown on top of all other apps. Very few apps should use this permission; these windows are intended for system-level interaction with the user.
  • UNINSTALL_SHORTCUT: This permission is no longer supported.
  • VIBRATE: Allows access to the vibrator.
  • WAKE_LOCK: Allows using PowerManager WakeLocks to keep processor from sleeping or screen from dimming.
