Columbus (Jan 13, 2011) – Leader Phone Chairman & Founder Michael McKibben announced today the launch of the Leader Phone iPhone Audio Conferencing App, which he calls "the only app that offers multiple, cutting-edge audio conferencing features that turn your iPhone into a mobile conference calling center."
The download is free from the App Store, and comes in both a Lite (free) version for casual users and a Pro version for "power users."
According to McKibben, "You can handle all your audio conferencing needs on your iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch, and still enjoy all our advanced features."
The Leader Phone iPhone app is different from other audio conferencing apps because it taps the power of the innovative engineering of both Leader Phone and the iPhone.
"The Leader Phone iPhone App actually syncs your conference calling with your iPhone contact list and iPhone calendar," says McKibben. "This allows you to use our instant Call Now! feature to eliminate PINs altogether if you choose."
The Leader Phone iPhone app includes advanced features such as call recording, call reminders, group calling (the Call Now! feature) and automatic add-in of late participants.
Present Leader Phone users are happy to see this new app coming from Leader. Mike Strall, National Accounts Executive for Memphis-based Empire Foods says: "Empire has been delighted with Leader Phone audio conferencing – great quality, innovative features, along with improved productivity. We are looking forward to using their new iPhone app – it will only make our conference calling even more convenient."

Leader Technologies, Inc. vs. Facebook, Inc.
On July 29, 2009 Leader and Facebook met in the State of Delaware in a federal patent infringement trial filed by Leader—Leader Technologies, Inc. v. Facebook, Inc., Case No. 08-CV-862-LPS where a jury ruled against Facebook for "literal infringement" of Leader´s patented technology U.S. Patent No. 7,139,761 that is the engine driving the Facebook website. In the split decision, the jury ruled against Leader for alleged premature commercial activity. Leader has asked the judge to set aside the adverse rulings on commercial activity for lack of any evidence as a matter of law. Both sides have filed post-trial motions and await the judge´s rulings.
