App of the Month: Voxer Walkie Talkie

Maybe it’s because texting can be annoying, especially when I’m multitasking or when I have my hands full. Or maybe it’s because I still miss my 2002 Nextel phone (there was nothing cooler than that chirping sound and you know it). Whatever the reason, I’m loving the Voxer Walkie Talkie app. It turns your smartphone into a smart walkie-talkie, so you can use it to bypass your friend’s rings and voicemail greetings and basically go straight to leaving a message. I use it when I’m meeting with people — it’s so much easier than texting my coordinates or calling and having an entire conversation about where I’m at. And one of Voxer’s coolest features is the group chat. With one touch of a button, you can send an audio, picture, location or text message to a whole group of friends. And since it’s integrated with Facebook, that group can even be a group of Facebook friends.

This last feature makes Voxer a tool that could be of great use at agencies such as ours. Imagine the convenience of sending out a quick audio message to your entire team of Brand Ambassadors and Managers. You can reach your whole group while you’re on the go — which I’m betting you often are. Plus, there’s an added bonus: It’s fun to use!

Voxer Walkie Talkie is free, and available in both the Android Market and the App Store, so everyone can play.
