Description

56k is a tribute to the early-90's internet experience, where you had to make sure nobody was using the phone before you could dial up and connect to the internet. Speeds were slow - increeeedibly slow. The mobile phone you know and love would leave any internet connection circa 1997 surpass that speed even on it's most modest setting.

Re-live the days of dialing up with your modem, listening to the gurgling sound of it connecting and navigating between super-simple webpages, slowly loading images and experiencing random disconnects.

Alternatively, compare it to what a similar experience would look and feel like on today's platforms, only as if you still had the trusty 56K-connection.

We hope you enjoy this little trip to the past... and please remember to hang up the line when you're done! ;-)

One change needed

The app is almost perfect and I salute the developer. Please, though, update this baby with a "repeat" button that will repeat the sound and can be used repeatedly. This is my go-to app for known crank callers. Also fervently desired: an app which says "This number is no longer in service...". You know the one and many of us would pony up the 99 for it.

Our legacy

I like how the images load like they did in the old days, esp the dithered GIFs. Also, the sound fx and novelty of the good old DOS days. Showed this to a couple of friends who genuinly thought I had jailbroken the phone to dial in somewhere! :D

Cheesy but fun

A great way to remember the old ways. Haha. I fired up the app in a coffee shop and when the sound came on people looked at me like I was crazy.
