Turn Your Android Mobile into a Walkie Talkie



Ever thought of turning your android mobile phone into a walkie talkie? There are a few apps available in android market which allows walkie-talkie type voice messaging. If you have tried Whatsapp, then you may have used the voice messaging which sends a short voice message to fellow whatsapp user. Talking about the “walkie-talkie” apps, I found two good apps:

  1. blip.me walkie-talkie
  2. TiKL – Touch To Talk
Both the apps have got similar user reviews – 4.2-4.3. Use of these apps is very clear. They use push to talk voice messaging platform.
1. blip.me walkie-talkie: Turn your mobile phone into a push-to-talk walkie-talkie! blip.me is a fun, useful, and free way to turn your mobile phone into a push-to-talk walkie-talkie.
This app features ( as written in app discription )
  1. Send and receive free voice notes and free text messages
  2. Stay in touch with family and close friends
  3. Simpler than a text message, but personal like a phone call
  4. Works on Android, iPhone, and other platforms
  5. Use it just like a push-to-talk (PTT) phone
blip.me solves this by allowing you to send a blip.me voice note to any friend on your contact list — it works even if your friend doesn’t have blip.me installed yet and even if your friend doesn’t have an Android phone!
