Twinkle

Twinkle

Twinkle is a soft-phone for making telephone calls using SIP over an IP network. It is a Qt-based VoIP phone.

Twinkle supports direct IP phone to IP phone communication or a network using a SIP proxy to route your calls.

To use Twinkle you need to obtain a SIP account, which are available from many providers at no charge. You also need to create a user profile. A user profile contains the data for your SIP account, like your username, password, SIP proxy address and more. You can create multiple user profiles for different accounts that you may have.
