    Default VoIP SIP Client - any interest?

    Hello iPhone users!

    As discussed in previous threads, THE killer app for iPhone would be a VoIP SIP Client runnig native, giving the possibility to make and receive SIP calls.

    Obviously there are already some open source works which can be used.

    This thread is a poll to show the potential developer how much interest is really out there. So please participate!!

    If you are a developer, feel free to contact me (I have my own voip gateway), if the price is reasonable, I could sponsor this software to everybody if my gateway would be integrated and a small fee to activate the software for all SIP.

    Thanks!!

    AK

    Update: There are some good news at me. I am currently working on a VoIP client for the iPhone (we are a team now of 4 people).

    Write me what features would you like to have!

    I'll gladly donate between 50 and 100 dollars if a truphone or any full working SIP client is imported in my iPhone.
    That's BY FAR the most important app I would EVER want in my iPhone.

    looks like for now only 25% is willing to pay above $20 for this...

    I spoke to a friend of mine btw, and he said this may be as simple as getting the source on the iphone and getting gcc on the iphone (is that possible) and then compiling - and command line tool would be ready. I don't really know enough to do this, but maybe someone here wants to try...

    You don't need gcc ON the phone. There are solutions to build iPhone software on your computer and upload it.

    For VoIP on the iPhone: the hard part is not doing the signaling (SIP) but the audio in-/output. The osx on the phone doesn't let you handle audio that easily... tried it a few days and failed by now.

    Thumbs up

    Excellent idea - to show the big interest to developres.

    If you search forums, you'll find at least 10 voip posts (I think I myself did some), and it's a topics that surfaces again and again.

    To developers - 25% of people with 100,000 unlocked phones who want to pay $20 is half of a million bucks. Not so bad given i think a team of several people can probably do it before christmas.

    Cool

    I'd be even more happy if we could pin it and invite other sip gateway owners to donate too.

    I have such an impression, that there is no lack of interest, but a huge lack of developers.

    Can anyone please tell me, what kind of developer is needed to develop an iPhone software like this?

    Thanks

    SIP client should be free. People should only pay for voip service. I use sjphone on my PPC which is free and is fully configurable to use any voip service. Given the demand, I'm pretty sure a free client will surface in near future.

    Doesn't the iphone use Core Audio?? (which btw the program I linked to in the other forum has the core audio implementation pre-written - you just gotta port it).

    Regardless, if someone would succeed in getting the command line to make calls (even without sound) there are definitely people who will then gladly step in and make the audio part work (I mean there is a voice recorder for this.... its gotta use the sound part).

    Disclaimer - I sound like I know what i'm talking about, but really i just think I do...
