The app only works with the Vodia PBX and its features and operation depend on the version of the PBX as some features may not be available or work differently in different versions of the PBX.
You can make calls by dialing the number, or through your contacts, call history or presence views. You can also receive calls using WebRTC, as long as your app is alive and you have a WiFi connection to your PBX.
To use the app, simply point the app to the URL of your Vodia PBX to connect, and sign in using your PBX user credentials.
To place a call, simply enter the destination number and press the call button. To place a call to a contact, simply go to the Contacts and tap on the contact to place the call. Use the dial pad to send DTMF during calls.

New in version 1.1:
- Now a service, which is optional, will keep the app alive instead of Android killing it after some time.
- Since this service could be a strain on the battery, it is provided as an option on startup screen. When you press, Run in Background, the service will run and keep the app alive, and a Vodia icon in the notification (which is how Android designed it) confirms that. When you press Stop in Background, the service will stop, the notification will disappear and the activity can now be killed by Android at any time when it’s not used.
- Local contacts can now be accessed in contacts, where you can switch between local and PBX contacts.
- During a call, an option is now provided, whether you want to make a WebRTC call or a call from your desktop VoIP phone (which must have the same account as you logged in to the app with). It can be very useful when you want to call someone using your desktop phone but the number is in your mobile phone contacts. Simply go to the app, use the local contacts to dial the number from the desktop phone. This option however will work with the latest PBX.
- Re-connection of app to the PBX has been enhanced, available with the PBX update. With this, even if you lose your WiFi or 3G connection, when you get it back, the app will reconnect on its own. The “Remember login information” option must be on when you login and the background service must be on to keep the app alive.
- Some other improvements made, again together with PBX update.
New in version 1.2:
- Uses the local current ring tone of the phone for incoming call alerts.
- Added page refresh option, so that the page can be refreshed without having to logout.
- Make it possible to connect to the PBX using https without a valid certificate. It was important because WebRTC now requires an https connection. However, it is recommended that you use a valid certificate in the PBX and the phone for better security.
