Burner now lets Android users have disposable phone numbers, gives iOS app a refresh

Many months have gone by since we first heard about Ad Hoc Labs’ Burner application, which brought a new kind of disposable digits service to folks with an iPhone. Well, starting today, those with an Android handset can also snag throw-away phone numbers via the newfangled app on Google’s flavorful platform. Naturally, Burner for Android will perform in a similar fashion to its iOS counterpart, allowing users (that are in the US) to seamlessly choose from an array of different plans that’ll determine how many minutes / texts any given number is good for — don’t worry, we’re sure you’ll come across one that’s perfectly suited for your business.

Customers on Apple’s side, meanwhile, can expect to experience some improvements within the app thanks to a recent update. Burner says its iOS offering has been enhanced in a number of ways, including “smarter” notifications as well as the ability to keep easier track of conversations by way of favoriting and archiving. And although this particular sector may be looked upon with uncertainty, Ad Hoc Labs CEO, Greg Cohen, says his team is just happy to be able to provide “an important tool for users to protect themselves by adding an extra layer of anonymity to their phones.” Craigslist, anyone?
