HeyTell App – Send an Instant Voice Message

HeyTell App for iPhone, iPad, and Android
Ever get frustrated when you have a lot to say in a text message, and then you get it all down, and then you have to read it over and make corrections, and then….well I think everyone has been in that instance, and we usually resort to just picking up the phone and trying to call a person, or settle for leaving a voicemail. 

With the HeyTell app, you just select the app, push the record button, and speak your message into the phone to a contact you’ve selected (who also has the app installed on their phone). Your message goes instantly to the person, who receives a notification that they have a message (much like a text message was received). They can then listen to your message instantly, and respond with a message of their own, much quicker than accessing their voicemail. You can use this app like a walkie-talkie even, or as an intercom. 

I know this doesn’t replace text messaging because you typically use it when one person can’t talk, but if one parent or babysitter is watching a little one who can’t type a text message, it’s the perfect app for that child to talk to Dad at work for example. My 2 year old daughter loves it, and learned very quickly how to send messages of her own. 

What’s also great about this app is that it is FREE! It also uses very little data, about the same as sending an email, and you can use it on 3G, EDGE, or WiFi connections. Conversations can also be saved and replayed offline; a great tool if a parent has to be away for a few days, and the little one can listen to a comforting message of the missed parent’s voice….for as many times as they need to…
