If you have relatives living abroad, then you're most likely to know that calling there is very expensive. That is why some people use alternative services that permit them to call each other on the Internet.
However, let say that you want to call someone who lives in an area, where Internet connectivity is at best, mediocre, thus making Internet calls is simply unsustainable. Then you will probably want to find a solution to call this person on his traditional phone at cheap rates.
VoipWise aims to enable you to call people all over the world at cheap rates, right from your computer. Calling someone is as easy as buying some credit, then dial his number in the interface of this voice-over-IP service.
Despite the statement on the official website about 'unlimited free calls', nothing is free. Even calling to countries whose calling rate is 'free' will require you to buy 'freedays'. This is clearly misleading for the user, so I deducted one star from the rate of this piece of software.
To sum up, VoipWise is a handy utility allowing you to call real phone lines right from your computer. Its cheap rates will probably attract people who want to call relatives abroad.
