US Virtual Number – Fanytel - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

No, I haven't personally developed the app myself. I'm actually a business professional with a long-standing background in the telecommunications industry, specifically in VoIP, dating back to 1997. However, I had the idea for the app and worked with a high-tech company in India to develop it using their expertise in coding and development. Together, we were able to bring the app to life and I provided my industry knowledge and experience to ensure it met the needs of our target market.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The two most challenging aspects of developing our mobile app were ensuring its stability and successfully marketing it. With over 250 competing apps in the market, marketing proved to be especially difficult. We realized that to be successful, we needed to offer our clients something unique and valuable. As a result, we decided to drop the pricing for dedicated US Phone Number to $0.99, which we believe offers our clients a fair value for their money. On the other hand, ensuring the stability of the app was also a significant challenge. We worked hard to optimize and refine the app to minimize crashes and bugs, so that our users could have a seamless experience.

The interviewee, Joseph Estephan, is the Managing Director of Zeust Limited - the parent company of Fanytel. Joseph has over 25 years of experience in the IP Telephony Business. He started Zeust Limited, a Cyprus-registered company providing VoIP telecommunication services B2B (wholesale) and B2C as retail services via our branded mobile App FanyTel which has more than 100,000 active clients.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

I really enjoy using TikTok as one of my favorite apps. I think it has managed to disrupt the dominance of other social media platforms like Facebook and YouTube by offering a simple and engaging way to view short videos from around the world. What I appreciate about TikTok is that unlike Facebook, you don't need to be friends with someone to see their videos, and unlike YouTube, it offers quick and easy-to-consume videos that can keep you entertained for hours. It's no surprise to me that TikTok has become a global viral sensation and has managed to capture the attention of so many people across the world.

How long have you been working on this app?

The idea for our app originally started in 2014, when we developed a platform that offered cheap international calls. However, after a few years, we noticed a significant decline in the demand for international calls, as free apps began to dominate the market. As a result, we decided to rebrand our app and pivot our focus towards providing virtual phone numbers from the US, UK, and Canada. Since then, we have been working on the app to improve its features and user experience to ensure our users can enjoy the best possible service.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

When developing this app, our primary focus was on addressing the user's need for privacy. We believe that everyone should have the right to a private second phone number for their personal or business needs, which is why our app provides users with virtual phone numbers that they can use to keep their personal and business communications separate and secure.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

I'm proud of our app because we've managed to make it straight-forward and easy to use, while also providing high-quality virtual phone numbers that are dedicated and non-recycled. We believe that this sets us apart from other similar apps on the market. What makes us different is that we've managed to offer a competitive price for our virtual phone numbers, without sacrificing quality or user experience. We understand the importance of privacy and security, which is why we're proud to offer a service that allows our users to keep their personal and business communications separate and secure.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We have several exciting features planned for future versions of our app. Firstly, we're working on developing a desktop version of the app to make it more convenient for our users to access their virtual phone numbers. Additionally, we're planning to introduce multi-login capabilities, which will allow users to have multiple accounts linked to a single virtual phone number. Finally, we're also exploring the possibility of adding a feature that allows for the transfer of purchased virtual phone numbers from one account to another. These updates will help us continue to offer our users the best possible experience while using our app.
