Technology[edit]

Morodo’s mobile application, MO-Call, supports over 2000 handsets across iOS,[3] BlackBerry,[4] Android, Symbian, Java, Windows Mobile and Android. The desktop version of MO-Call was developed in QT and supports Windows, Mac and Linux.

To use MO-Call on smart phones, the application can be minimised to the background of the phone and will recognize international numbers and route the call onto Morodo’s network. Calls can be connected to Morodo’s network via a local access number, a call back or over an internet data channel such as Wi-Fi or 3G. SMS works by converting the text into data and then delivered via the internet connection through the Morodo network. The MO-Call app also supports VoIP calling where calls [5] are connected using Voice Over Internet Protocol.
