Burner App Launches For Android, Provides Disposable Phone Numbers

There are plenty of reasons someone could need a disposable number from Burner App. Perhaps they are an international man of mystery; more likely they just went on a date with someone and they aren’t sure if it will work out. In any case, the disposable phone number solution is now available for Google Android smartphones.

Burner launched in August 2012 for the Apple iOS platform and quickly became a favorite for number burning customers.

The app is really simple to use. Just push the “Create Burner” button, pick an area code, and choose which number your new burner should forward to. Click one more button, and you’re ready to go. The secondary number connects to your phone via its real number. The Burner app can be used to send and receive calls and texts.

Each new customer receives one free Burner number and then the app charges $2 for 3 credits. Those credits provide users with a “Mini Burner,” which lasts for 7 days, 20 voice minutes, or 60 texts, whichever comes first.

Customers should be warned that, while Burner provides anonymity, it does store user information. That means police can still grab a user’s info with a subpoena. The company is careful to remind users that it is a legally operated US business.

Burner is a profitable platform that has been sitting at the top of the iOS App Stores utilities charge for months.

In releasing its first Google Android app, the team at Burner also updated its iOS app with improved notifications for missed calls and voicemail. iOS customers will also notice better call history management and the ability to customize your voicemail greeting.

You can pick up the Burner app at no charge from the Google Play store.
