Because of time zone differences, I dont get to have full phone calls with some friends and family often. I leave little messages that anyone can listen to at their convenience, and responding takes a second.
Besides that, I was rushing around trying to move out of an apartment, and couldnt stay on the phone. My friend who was helping me left his app open and it functioned like a walkie talkie. Really convenient.
Other than that, it`s just fun to leave silly messages for people sometimes. The "voice text" has a personal touch to it that makes me smile.
I enjoy using hey tell. It`s great for fast communication between a number of people without pushing too many buttons. It also sounds clearer then my regular phone conversation on my iPhone.
Cool alternative to texting!
My Mother refuses to text. Even with iMessage being free, she just won`t do it. But, she just can`t help but reply to HeyTell! Plus, you can do it quickly and on the go AND you don`t have to worry that Siri or predictive text will write something that you can`t retract!!! :-)
