Since I spoke earlier today on the Is My Son Gay App being pulled from the Android Market, I decided to blog about an actual useful app. I learned about this application from a friend of mine in Arkansas. The app is called HeyTell.
HeyTell works across various platforms. I find this to be really useful considering very seldom does someone I know have the exact same Droid X phone as I do.
One you install the application, you choose a contact, push a button, and start talking. It works like a walkie-talkie application. The best part about this app is that you do not have to register an account. You just install and talk. It is literally that easy. Most walkie-talkie apps either do not work correctly, or require you to register to use them.
HeyTell is a great way to share short verbal conversations with other friends. Sometimes, it is just better to hear a voice then to read a text. It allows for your personality to come out more. If you are someone who is accused of being rude in text because they do not get the context, then this app could solve that problem.
The app works fast. The voice chat wait times are no longer than sending a text. The 16kHz frequency of the audio makes it sound like the person is next to you. Plus, the app works on 4G, 3G, Wifi, or even slower network. You can even talk to iPad people with this app.
If you leave the application open, the replies will play instantly. This helps to have an actual conversation. However, I normally keep the application closed so that I can choose when to listen to my messages. My co-workers do not need to know that a friend of mine just woke up or something.
So, if you want a great application for your smart-phone, install HeyTell. Let me know what you think. If you already have it, what are your thoughts on it?
