Upptalk

UppTalk (formerly Yuilop) its a cloud-based communications app for smartphones, tablets and the iPod Touch.The award-winning global mobile app works over WiFi and 3G/4G and lets users communicate for free - call, text, group chat and share multimedia - with any US and Canada cell phone or landline, even if they don’t have UppTalk.

Upon download, UppTalk offers a real phone number so users can get even more out of the app. No more missed calls. This number can be used across devices, and the user can take calls even when only on WiFi. This unique feature lets the UppTalk users avoid roaming charges and an expensive phone bill when they are abroad.

The company was founded by telecoms veterans and experienced entrepreneurs, including Jochen Doppelhammer who was previously CEO of KPN’s Spanish MVNO and led the mobile internet brand simyo to become the fastest growing and number one MVNO in Spain, and Tono Brusola who was previously responsible as CSO for KPN Spain’s partner business.
