New Voice Only Social Media App Counts Down to Launch on May 31st, 2014
Palm Coast, FL – Excitement is mounting for a new voice only social media app that will be available for download on May 31st, 2014 in the Apple App Store. It will be availale for Android users in 30-60 days.
Users will be able to record seven to ten seconds of their voice and ‘post it’ as a status update to share with the world, friends, or privately to a person or group. Instead of creating text messages, users will click the TALKiT icon, record their seven to ten second message, and press send to post the "TALKiT" on the newsfeed.
User's posts can be shared on their Facebook and Twitter pages as well and their friends can hear their posts on those social media sites. "We've been having a great time testing it," said one of the creators, Curtis Ceballos. "It's so simple to use and there is no texting, so you don't have to deal with those annoying auto corrects, and there is no more texting and driving," he added.
Think about hearing the actual voice of one of your favorite performers, favorite actors, or an athlete you idolize. The company has also peaked the interest of two Florida school districts that have verbally committed to implementing the app internally. One use for the districts will be using it for staff to post a verbal work order request to the IT department when they need something looked at or fixed. This would be used through their private settings option.
Advertisers can purchase audio ads that are static, or redirect to another URL such as their website. You might hear McDonald's 'I'm Loving It' jingle with an offer or new product launch ad.
The private setting option on the app will let families, co-workers, or any private groups quickly and verbally communicate with each other without anyone else being able to access their “TALKiTs.”
Texas based software and app development company Rocksauce Studios are the developers and have worked with companies such as Disney, McDonald’s, Autotrader, GNC and much more.
The company is releasing membership by invitation, and when that user refers someone, they will move up 25 spaces in ‘line’ to be one of the first users.
