PeerMe Closed down February 3, 2009

PeerMe

PeerMe is an internationally based VOIP company with an additional mVOIP client for Java enabled phones. Founded in 2004, PeerMe is now situated in a field of numerous competitors trying to advance in the burgeoning VOIP market while attempting to chip away at incumbent leader Skype. The company developed a secure messaging platform that offers PC to PC and PC to mobile instant messaging, p2p file transfer and voice communications. For calls to any phone there is a charge, but as with all VOIP companies, calls are substantially less than they are on regular carriers. Calls can be paid for using prepaid PeerMe cards or through PayPal.The company has raised a modest amount of funding, but continues to put forth challenges to its competitors which include barablu, Skype, ConnectMeAnywhere, jajah and others.

PeerMe is available on all Java phones through a downloadable application. For Java enabled phones, PeerMe’s download offers a one click photo upload that allows you to post any picture straight from your camera onto potentially any blog, photosite or social network. Currently PeerMe is integrated with Facebook, but its API is open to any site interested.One click mobile blogging is also available with Twitter, however PeerMe has opened its API to other blogging sites. Posts written from your phone will immediately appear on your blog with this function.PeerMe’s IM client is integrated with Yahoo, MSN and AOL and will be compatible with Jabber and XMPP in the near future.The Java Client is readily available yet only works seamlessly with the ATT network. Other Teleco companies’ services block PeerMe features occasionally.PeerMe also has a stripped down mobile browser client for non Java phones which has the same IM client as the download, but does not support one click photo or blogging
