There are plenty of fax apps for mobile platphorms, i.e. for Android.

For example Popcompanion for AndroidThe app is available on Marketplace for free, and there is a free trial. Although if you need to send faxes from Android regularly or receive faxes to your personal fax number, of course this cannot be for free, because any good service is payable.

Yes, there are a number of apps on Play, including FaxFile, eFax, iFax, FaxPro, etc. As far as I know, yes, you still do have to pay to send faxes still. I look forward to the day when we are finally free of the fax machine, but I guess that we aren’t quite there yet.
