PhoneGnome launched iPhoneGnome, for using PhoneGnome on your Apple iPhone. The dialer leverages technology from friend Marcelo Rodriguez’s RingFree project, another very cool free service that also lets you use PhoneGnome on your iPhone.
PhoneGnome also put out some interesting stats on real-world usage by PhoneGnome users, showing a steady increase in on-net (pure IP to IP) calls. While two-thirds of minutes are still destined for a PSTN user, only a quarter of those are using the traditional carrier (the rest being delivered via VOIP services). Almost one-third of minutes are terminating to an IP end-point. Whether that means a 33% decrease in revenue for the telephony industry or whether it means people are just calling more, is not clear.
