TalkTalk Talk2Go app - anything similar from Plusnet?

Just moving from TalkTalk.  They have a very useful app (Talk2Go) which enables you to access your inclusive landline minutes (and your free 0800 calls) from your mobile - and to receive your landline calls too.
An exceptionally useful app, because not only does it allow you to use your 'free' landline minutes wherever you go, but also to receive calls forwarded from your landline (free).
Are Plusnet planning to introduce an equivalent app?  BT have something similar (but not as comprehensive).

This isn't something that I'm aware of. Personally, I'm not sure how it will work on our network, but it is a suggestion that I can pass forward for you.

there was a similar question raised when BT launched their equivalent app and the answer was no then.

Thanks - that would be useful.  BT have a similar thing too, but not quite as useful.
The TalkTalk one was so useful that it almost prevented me from switching to Plusnet, and I shall very much miss it:
http://help2.talktalk.co.uk/about-talk2go-app
The benefits:
    Free* app-to-app calls
    Use your inclusive landline minutes & boosts on your mobile
    Enjoy great value international calls (charged at landline rates, not mobile)
    Get the whole family connected with up to 5 app users.
    Avoid mobile coverage blackspots by calling over Wi-Fi
    Never miss a call with Follow Me - Answer your landline calls on your mobile when you're on the move (UK and abroad).
*max call time 180 mins per call applies, calls are charged at 9ppm thereafter.

Surely things have moved on since then?  Huh

Thanks - that's all you can do.  I appreciate that.  Hopefully, the decision makers will see this as a matter of customer retention.
