How can I create an app like Viber ?

I heard some stuff about voip, I don't exactly understand what it is and I am not sure if this is thing used for creating an app like Viber. And I want to create one so can someone explain to me how to create an app like that.

VoIP is a pretty complex thing to tackle right off the bat (it will most likely require setup on a server, as well as some serious iOS development), but here is an API that assists with it.

http://www.twilio.com/

I would suggest reading some of the documentation before deciding if this is something you want to tackle, and if you do, I would be interested to hear how it goes!

Hope this helps!
