      Wire vs Zoiper opinions
      This alternative is disputed. Wire is still a legitimate alternative to Zoiper, but it might have issues that some users think are important.
      Wire doesn't do SIP which is what Zoiper does.

      Zoiper allows you to call a regular phone number using a standard VoIP service (SIP or IAX) - the other person doesn't have to use Zoiper.

      They're completely different things. Zoiper does SIP and IAX. Wire is a proprietary setup.

      Linphone is quite half-baked if you do not use their full system.
