How Walkie Talkie differs from other comm. tools:

Version 0.4 near completion

Friday, February 27th, 2009

For me, two exciting features got added in the v0.4.x code base.

  • Contact photos are now displayed in both the Send and History tab.  Contact photos are automatically retrieved/sync’d by Google.
  • Send and reply with pre-recorded sounds (simply long press a recipient or a received msg).  Lots of fun sounds effects and phrases are included.  More sounds will be available later via sound packs.

Many users have requested a forum where they can post their interests and meet others to exchange messages.  I’ve created the Meeting Area forum for this exact purpose.  If you have something else in mind, please email me using the Android Market.
