Lumicall - an open alternative to Viber

Free and open communications from mobile devices

Lumicall is a fork of the original Sipdroid SIP phone for Android.  As far as forks go, it is one of the more innovative ones, loading up the original project with cool features like encryption (TLS, SRTP, and ZRTP), ICE for NAT traversal and ENUM dialing.

All together, it aims to provide a completely free, open and secure alternative to the popular Viber app for mobiles.  Daniel Pocock, Lumicall project founder, will look at questions like why he chose to start with the Sipdroid code base, why he uses SIP, what level of security is really achievable on a mobile device and what kind of community effort is necessary to make this initiative successful.
