Jaxtr : International Calls for FREE


I got to know a very good service for bloggers. With this service bloggers can be in touch with their readers without even revealing their actual number. This new service is Jaxtr. Let us see how it works and what jaxtr is?

What is jaxtr?


  • Jaxtr links your regular phone to the web, so you can hear from any caller worldwide while keeping your existing phone number private. You can even control who calls you so that your regular phone is not always ringing. (If you are that popular.)
  • You don’t need another handset like Skype as it works with any phone you already use, including ordinary landline phones. Moreover, you don’t need to download anything and install on your computer.
  • Be happy, as Jaxtr is Free. So you can call friends and family overseas at the same cost and with the same convenience as calling a friend down the street. (Source: Jaxtr)

How to make it work for you?


  1. Register for jaxtr.
  2. Link your regular phone(s) where you want to receive/make calls.
  3. Create a widget for your blog or social network or email signature etc if you want.
  4. Invite your friends.
  5. Put this on your blog as you can see in my sidebar.
  6. You are all set.
  7. When you plan to call one of your friends, just create a number for them in your account. (Remember, you have to provide your number when it says, ‘Call me Free’, you don’t have to enter your friends’ phone number.)
  8. Jaxtr will assign a number for your friend so that you can call them anytime you want for free.
  9. Every month you get 100 free jax minutes.

Cool, hmm…. Enjoy another free service to be in touch with your friends.

Store your file on the web with Windows Live SkyDrive

Last year there were lots of Web Applications launched by Google, which includes Google Docs & Spreadsheets. That application makes it easy for you to store all your Microsoft Word & Excel documents online. You don’t need to carry a Pen-Drive or a Flash Drive with you if you wanna access them in office (Oops…in office, generally this application will be blocked because of the security policies of the company.) or some other place. Those documents can even be shared with all your family & friends so that you can discuss online with them or they can edit it if you have given them edit permission.
Similar to that Microsoft has recently launched Windows Live SkyDrive?

Windows Live SkyDrive is a brand new service that gives you 500MB of space for the storing and sharing of files. So it is a kind of ‘Pen Drive on a fly’ which can be used as a personal HDD on the internet.
By default, there are several protected directories which you can store your files in. There are Public and Private folders. Private – Only you can view them. However, Windows Live SkyDrive lets you create specific folders to share with anyone on your Windows Live Contacts list. Your Public folder allows ONLY reader permissions for the public in viewing files within the folder.
You can set specific permissions for those viewing your folders as well same as you can do in Google Docs & Spreadsheets. Sharing a file with family and friends was never so easy.
BTW, there is another site Zoho which allows you to create online documents that you can share with anyone you like. There are lots of other products from Zoho like Zoho Write, Zoho Sheet, Zoho Projects etc. etc…
Keep checking these cool applications, but before that put few words here and let me know if you like this information…..
