Viber for Android is Here
If you remember back in May, XDA member cmlow0 told us about the launching of the private beta of the popular Viber for Android. Well, 2 months after that announcement, we have the official version available for download. The app lets you make free phone calls and send free text messages to other users that have Viber installed. The sound quality is above the average.
