Musical Messaging Apps

The La-La App Allows You To Chat Via Song

— July 16, 2014 — Tech
The La-La app allows its users to communicate with audio clips of songs. You know what they say: a song is worth a thousand spoken words! Or something along those lines.

Earlier this year, the Yo app proved the public's fondness for simplicity (the app only allows you to message 'yo' or variations of the word to your friends). The La-La app is a little less redundant, and a whole lot more fun! As someone whose preferred method of communication is quoting lyrics back and forth to one another, I think I can safely say there will be a market out there for this inventive messaging tool.

So the next time you want to let your boo-thang know you're thinking of them, instead of a regular 'ol "Hey babe," why not send them a snippet of 'My Girl' by the Temptations, or Captain and Tenille's 'Love Will Keep Us Together.'
