What is Call+?
Call+ is an app with in-app purchases but, essentially you can make phone calls to regular phones to a number of countries absolutely free.
There are versions for both iOS and Android.
I downloaded the app from the Android Playstore and installed it on an LG G2 running Android v4.4, KitKat with the Talkback beta installed.
The installation of Call+ took a few seconds on my 3g connection.
Upon opening the app, I was asked to enter my own phone number to
initiate the app.
The list of countries was easy to navigate and I managed to select South

I only have to do this once so, no big deal.
After I have selected South Africa, I entered the rest of my phone
number in the edit field just below.

conditions just underneath that.
I double tapped on the start button to continue and was asked to confirm
if my number is such and such.
Here I was given two options. I could edit my number by double tapping

was entered correctly so, I decided to proceed.
When I double tapped ok, I was told that an sms was sent to my number.
This sms contained a 6 digit code that I then entered into the provided
On this screen, you are also able to request for the system to phone you
instead with a code. By proceeding, you also acknowledge that you agree
with the terms and conditions.
Upon completing the entry, it just jumped to the next screen without
Everything on this screen was 100% inaccessible.
The app on Android is useless from this point on.
How developers can make such mistakes is beyond me.
It is almost as if they are doing this intentionally.
I contacted the developer so, let’s see what kind of response I’ll be getting from them.
