Burner-iOS-appWe’ve told you about the Burner iOS app from Ad Hoc Labs in the past, an iOS app that received a lot of attention for its ability to provide temporary numbers for receiving SMS and calls on the iPhone. Today the developers are announcing a major update to the app that introduces a number of new features such a referral program and custom voicemail messages. While temporary Burner numbers aren’t free, Ad Hoc Labs is also dropping the $1.99 price tag and making Burner available as a free download starting today.

Not only can you download the app now for free, Burner is also providing a “Sample Burner” to get you started:

Once a user downloads the free iOS or Android app, he or she can create a “Sample Burner” for free. Additional numbers can be purchased via credit packages starting at $1.99. There are also extension options available for purchase.

Among the major new features for the app is a referral program that will allow users to earn credits by recommending other users to the app, the ability to reactive disabled numbers, improved notifications, and much more:
