Voice Messaging Apps

The ChitChat App Allows You to Send Recorded Audio Messages to Friends

— September 7, 2014 — Tech
There are hundreds of ways to message your friends, family and loved ones via your smartphone these days and the ChitChat voice messaging app recently added another platform for you to do so from. This app cleverly allows smartphone users to record audio messages and send them to one another in walkie-talkie style.

Everyone enjoys hearing the sound of the person's voice that they want to talk to over a basic and distant text message. While there is the option of phone calls that target this very need, sometimes people can't reply to a call instantly due to other demands. The ChitChat app allows you to combine the intimacy of voice alongside the convenience of leaving a text message into one nifty app. Much like SnapChat, the ChitChat app will automatically delete the messages after they've been listened to.
