G'day G'day how ya goin' Burner! Today we have some big news for you!
We know the world revolves around communicating via SMS, and it’s hard when you’re living or traveling outside the US to stay in touch without incurring crazy long-distance charges. To help with this problem we’ve made Burner available, for the first time, outside the US and Canada. You can now download Burner in Australia and buy a US and Canadian number for texts and voicemail to text anyone in the US and Canada, long distance charge free!
Once you create your number you’ll have access to tons of great Burner features like reminders to stay organized and of course you can create as many numbers as you would like and burn your number any time to take it out service.
There’s tons of other messaging apps out there that you can use to message with friends or family in the US, but they’re a hassle. Once you decide what service you want to use and create an account, you then have to get everyone you want to talk to to create an account as well. And then you have to find and connect with everyone -- search your address book, connect Facebook, sign in with Twitter -- just to send a simple message.
Burner makes messaging dead simple, with the one thing everyone has -- a phone number.
These are text-only numbers, so you won’t be able to make or receive calls, but if someone does call you they’ll be able to leave you a message that you can listen to in the app!
This is only the beginning and we know we have tons of Burner fans that want the app available in their country. Please feel free to reach out to us on Facebook, Twitter or through support and let us know where you are and where we should expand to next.
