mas_top10_150h - Copy.jpg Developer’s description: Sad that your iTouch can’t make a phone call?  Truphone created a landmark application that converts the simple, wildly popular iPod touch device into a mobile phone — something that the media player was not designed to do. With the Truphone-created app, users find themselves with a powerful phone replete with calling options, instant messaging capabilities, and most attractively, low-cast calling.

For now, you can use the app with any headphone that has a mic. Soon, you can buy Trupphone’s own Microphone Adapter compatible with the 2nd generation iPod Touch. With this final addition, Truphone will offer iPod owners a comprehensive mobile phone package complete with high-quality hardware and low-cost software. With its newest 3.0 iteration, Truphone for the iPod Touch has come to include much more communications features and capabilities.

Pros: iTouch users have been crippled by not being able to place a call. Low costs, especially international calls.

Cons: Uses WiFi to place the call.

LVCC, North Hall
Competition: January 9, 2014, Room N255


The Mobile Apps Showdown is a fast-paced contest where you're asked to weigh in on the apps you think have what it takes to make it. For the months leading up to the 2013 CES, we'll be presenting the contestants to you. You can try the apps, watch demos, make your feelings known, and ultimately vote on a winner. We're platform agnostic, so if it's mobile, it's in the competition.


The top ten apps will join us at 2014 CES for an action packed event hosted by Jon Hein and Gary Dell'Abate from the Howard Stern Wrap Up Show.


Robin Raskin, creator of the Mobile Apps Showdown, will be there to emcee events.


By the end of this year, nearly 50 billion apps will have been downloaded. Only you know which ones are the keepers.
