Explore Ideas with New People Through Voice.
Something like Twitter, minus the text and photos... listen to the people who make our world.
While it is possible to feel a personal connection with someone that we happen to meet at the grocery store, in the gym, or at a coffee house, randomly stumbling on a genuinely meaningful connection with another person is relatively rare. Today's technology helps improve communications with people we already know, but in what way can it help us connect with folks we do not yet know? Many apps and websites offer photos as a filter, but pictures do not reflect personality or generate deeply felt human connection.
The blind and visually impaired community understands how we can find relationships without photos, based on personality and chemistry. It's time for the rest of us to learn. Vorail is based on the most human form of communication, our voice. After all, it is our voice that opens the window to our soul. Hear a question, speak an answer, ask a question, listen to the answers. When meeting people at a party, asking a question is the natural way to start talking. Choosing which questions to answer in a safe environment that protects privacy is a risk-free way to join the conversation. Vorail never request phone number or email, and any person who communicates in a way that makes you uncomfortable or any topic that makes you feel upset can be added to your mute bin so that communications between you and that person or topic will no longer take place. Vorail is a community where healthy and meaningful communication happens because people learn to trust one another by listening to the authenticity and sincerity that can only be expressed using the human voice. Likewise, people who are not authentic and sincere are recognized as such and subsequently muted by many in the community. Experience life through your ears, and it will add more vision to your sight. Go where eyes can't take you.

What's New in Version 1.83
Massive security flaws
As the title reflects, there are massive security exploits with this app. There is a user who has consistently been impersonated by another person on the app, and the developer has done absolutely nothing to correct the security flaws. This incident has been reported several times, and still… Nothing has been done. One glaring security hole in the app, is the ability for another user to rename themselves to the same exact name of another user. This contributes to massive bouts of harassment, overall annoyances, and not to mention… They series need for the developer to take action to keep this user off the app.
The app is great.
I have been using this app for a while now probably close to a year, and I think it's great. It is a great tool for folks to communicate, and get ideas and opinions from each other. I will continue to use it, and hope that my contributions will be helpful.
There maybe some problems with security, but still a great app.
This is a great app and I would recommend it to anyone. There may be a few little security bugs, but I still think it's a great app for people to use.
