App Description

Sidecar is an advanced messenger and calling app. Now, in one elegant, seamless environment, you can text, send voice notes, make voice and video calls, and send photos, videos, contacts and locations. Unlike other apps, you can even share and call friends who don't have Sidecar yet if they're in the U.S. or Canada.


With Sidecar 2.0 we’ve added rich text and multimedia messaging to our award-winning calling features. We've integrated iOS 6's new sharing functionality so that when you receive a photo or video that you like, you can share it instantaneously to Facebook, twitter and other social platforms.

With Sidecar

* Everything you need is in one place - effortlessly mix texting, calling, and multimedia sharing in a conversation.
* Make calls from anywhere over WiFi or your cellular data network.
* Save a bundle on your wireless bill with free Sidecar to Sidecar calls and free dial-out calls to any U.S. or Canadian number.
* Communicate with everyone from one app - even if they don’t have Sidecar yet.


As thanks for being an early member of the Sidecar community we are currently allowing everyone to call any number in the U.S. or Canada for free.


Sidecar has no advertising and uses your current phone number. Try it and you’ll see that we’ve built a high quality, no hassle, elegant, fast communication service that’s much better than what you’re getting with your calling plan. No other app matches it. Like we said: Smarter.you.
