App of the Week: Voxer – Push-To-Talk Messaging Instead of Never-Ending Calls
WhatsApp – the free mobile messaging app – has been making waves after being acquired by Facebook for a mind-boggling $16 billion. It does one thing and does it well – send and received text messages worldwide without having to pay for SMS. It even won our showdown with Kik. Voxer does it one better – live voice.
Live voice – not to be confused with live calling – uses a walkie-talkie, push-to-talk, system for live and recorded voice messaging. Great for avoiding huge fees for messaging or talking to friends and colleagues overseas. Another benefit? Avoiding time-consuming, productivity-killing, phone calls.
Voxer is free for personal use with a paid PRO plan for businesses. The app is available on iOS, Android and Windows devices. Voxer is also available on your desktop browser, so you can send voice and text messages without leaving your computer.
