With the use of the internet, it is easy to carve multiple identities for yourself. Most of us have multiple e-mail accounts, and a lot of us have multiple Twitter and Facebook accounts too. However, the idea of having multiple phone numbers has not caught on as yet. The iOS app Flyp is here to help people out with that.
The concept of this app is very simple. You have a single smartphone but multiple phone numbers, each representing a unique aspect of your life. The basic idea is to manage carious aspects of your life from a single smartphone. At present, the app is available only in the US but is soon expected to be seen in the global markets too. The first phone number can be availed for free. With this free number, you get a voice mail, 100 minutes of calls and unlimited text messaging. Each additional phone number after that costs $2.99 per month or $29.99 per year to maintain.
Flyp is more than just an app that gives you multiple numbers. It is an extremely useful app in fact with a wide array of features that will help you segregate your social, work and personal lives. You do not have to mix one with the other anymore. It helps you manage everything from text messages to notifications to voicemail to numbers to e-mail and more.
The numbers offered by Flyp are not disposable ones for one time use. They are permanent numbers as long as you maintain them by paying for them. These separate numbers can be assigned to different parts of your life. You could share different numbers with different people and also decide who you wish to receive calls from. You could mute certain numbers if you do not wish to be disturbed by those people. Also, you can make phone calls using this app. The calls made from this app are clear and do not have any undue disturbance of any sort.
While Google Voice can help you get proxy numbers, Flyp has another unique feature that gives it a clear edge. This is the Quick Reply feature. This feature, as the name suggests, helps you handle phone calls when you are unavailable to take them. Instead of dropping them into your voicemail, this app allows you the option of text to Voice Quick reply message. These messages can be customised for each number you use.
From a design point of view, this app has a smooth neat look. Also, it is very user friendly, intuitive and responsive. The interface has been kept simple and colourful with only necessary features. All in all, you will not have any trouble finding what you need. The text messages are responsive and fast too.
If you are one of those caught up in your busy schedule and unable to keep up with the various aspects of your life, then Flyp will surely come in handy. It is available in the App Store for the US at present. If you live outside the US, you will have to wait a little longer before you can get to using this brilliant app.
