  • Yes!! Im very excited about his!
  • About bloody time... Now I need Viber and Skype and I will be set...
  • WP7, I love you, but I really wish the big developers who REALLY make the cross platforms apps would realize and make apps for you. This is just a second rate Voxer, and NO ONE I know on Android or iOS is using this. same thing happend with Words With Friends when we got Words by Post instead. The developers are great for making this app, but I really wish the big guys would come over here more often
  • Heytell is pretty popular. I don't know anyone using voxer. Now if heytell would show up in the market I would get it.
  • you should be able to get it from the QR Scan if your viewing this article on a browser or via the Download App link on the mobile app.
  • Pretty nice. Voice quality is really good.  Gonna have to get this in more people's hands and see how it works out vs. texting all the time.
  • Too bad some people are too stubborn to use it... Anyway, thanks devs!
  • YES!!! One of my favorite apps from my ol' iPh 4- #ILoveWindowsPhone.
  • Nobody is using this that I know either...GIVE US VOXER!!!! is there a way u can find people that use this app within the app
  • Does anyone see a way to listen to the recordings through your ear piece instead of the speaker? There's a switch for that in the Android app.
  • it appears to have a glitch where upon opening the app it always thinks you exited while a message was being sent the previous time you used the app...anybody else notice this?
  • Might need to restart phone
  • Might need to restart phone
  • Awesome! I've really been waiting for this.
  • Hey Voxer complainers ... Go to Voxer.Com and complain.
    Not much hope for you.. See:
    Search from Voxer KnowledgeBase:
    "Not Planned" all over the results.
    Side note: Like the look and functions of voxer, but since when does a "walkie talkie" app need to send pictures?
    Way to go Voxilate on getting HeyTell to WP7. Already moved my setups from iOS and Android to WP7. (Even got a couple of WP7 friends to install it).
