Great tool. Needs a couple more features
For jobs that need a push-to-talk solution, or walkie-talkies, this is a great substitute. The one thing that would make it perfect for me would be if I could send images with my voice memos so that I can show the person I'm talking to what I'm talking about.
When working fast paced jobs, most of the people I work with have iPhones or Macs, so since this works on both of those I can talk to them quickly and efficiently while walking around without having to type out text messages.
The one benefit this has over PPT or walkie talkies is that it waits on you, you don't wait on it. If I'm talking to someone, I don't want someone chiming in on my radio when I can't listen to them. With this, I get a notification and I listen to the note when I am available to do so. The speed is impressive too. you can carry on a fairly smooth conversation, as much as any other half-duplex solution.
There's A Simple Alternative
There's something you can do to send messages and hear the voice of the person you're talking to. It's called a phone call.
Pretty, but not very useful
I'm not quite sure why anyone would want a tool that merely sends voicemail. If this had text messaging integrated as well, it may provide some value. Why not just use Skype, or god forbid, call someone?
