Voice message - to save life and conversation

One famous comedian once said ‘If an action requires two hands to complete, you should use your brain too’. But it’s often forgotten while driving. We get easily distracted by cell phone calls, texts or even food. Distractions make you take eyes off the road, hands off the wheel and even mind off of driving. Texting mostly - as it involves whole body response.

NEW YORK - Sept. 30, 2014 - PRLog -- Even though SMS texting has been replaced by instant messaging, the problem persists. Social networking apps are ruling as people on average spend nearly 11 hours every month accessing them. Liking a friend’s post on Facebook, receiving a photo on SnapChat or texting badly on Viber - are common distractions taking hold of our attention. Do any of these apps help you drive safely?


Fortunately there is at least one app that aims at making driving and socialising a safer match. 4talk, unlike many other instant messaging apps, lets you send voice messages instead of standard text without the annoying “hold-the-button-while-recording” mode. Seems such a simple deviation can work magic on the road. Saying “I am driving, I can not talk right now” on a voice message would take almost same amount of time and attention as texting, just because you have to hold a record button. With 4talk, on the other hand, you press the button to start recording and once again to end it and send. No need to keep your eyes, hands or mind on the phone.

People who drive while sending or reading text messages are 23 percent more likely to be involved in a car crash than other drivers. A crash typically happens within an average of 3 seconds after a driver is distracted. Are there any messages worth dying for? A small change in casual activities can help prevent accidents from happening and cause no harm to communication. “Everyone can make a product, but the important part is to think about life changing functionality. They might seem small, but when you think that just one button can save lives - it’s really worth doing,” says Sergey Kravtsov, CEO and the creative man behind 4talk app.

While adding safety, developers made it possible to keep voice messages like e-mails, stored safely in the cloud. Anything sent or received while driving will be there waiting for you on computer, and in the near future on a web application. “It’s all about best user experience and thoroughly  thought out features,” says S. Kravtsov.

4talk is available on Mac OS X, Windows, iOS and Android platforms.
