Photos stored or taken with the device's camera can be sent as a fax directly from the app. Faxes received can be viewed and forwarded via fax or email right from the app.

"We are excited to see continuing growth of the eFax service in Japan," said Hemi Zucker, CEO, j2 Global, Inc. "Our Tokyo office opened last year, our local staff did a great job, we crossed the 10,000 customer mark, and are going strong. The demand for the eFax service in Japan is increasing, while growing the network coverage in response to this rising demand demonstrates that replacing fax machines with eFax is essential for Japanese companies of all types and sizes."
