TalkBox Voice Messenger: Why Text, When You Can Send Voice IMs?

January 23, 2011
TalkBox Voice Messenger is a new, free iOS application, which allows iPhone users to send "voice IMs" to their friends and family. This clever mode of communication is quick and easy, and is perfect for those times when you want to relay information fast without battling with your iPhone's virtual keyboard. Features of the application include:
  • Push-to-talk instant voice messaging with your friends
  • Group Conversation - talking among multiple friends. Invite new friends into a chat anytime.
  • Location Sharing - Send your location to your friend directly.
  • Facebook-connect - Sync your TalkBox friend list with your Facebook friend list. All your Facebook friends who has joined TalkBox will be automatically available for chating. [sic]
  • Push Notification to let you know any incoming messages anytime [sic]
  • Conversation History
Personally, I think this is quite a good idea. Sometimes, a phone call would be preferable to using TalkBox, however, with this app the recipient of the IM can "talk" back at a convenient time. Furthermore, both parties save their voice minutes. The developer of TalkBox (Green Tomato Limited) has made the application available free, for a limited time only. So grab it now, try TalkBox, and let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
