Zello app is the old school CB Radio

Back in the 1980s before the explosion in mobile phone technology there was a lot of people using CB radios to communicate with other people, especially on the go. Today we have an application for you called Zello, which will remind you of an old school CB Radio.

The application is available for owners of the iOS platform, Android, and BlackBerry and is the place for free live and private public conversations. Millions of users are already enjoying the app instead of just texting, and the app can be used for a one-on-one with a friend or for a live group call with your family or other group, and Zello can even replace two way radios at work.

It will give you the old school feel of a CB Radio and users can create a live Zello channel for your forum or customers, and even enjoy conversations across the globe. Features of the application include a free live voice via any network or Wi-Fi connection, messages can be replayed even if your phone was off, accounts can be deleted, and as it is cross platform it doesn’t matter what handset your friends have.

Version 1.2 of the iOS version brings with it call alert that sends an audible alert with optional text to your contacts, Swipe display on the talk screen to quickly switch between recent contacts, option to rename contacts, and bug fixes with improved stability. Zello for iOS can be found on the App Store as a free download and requires iOS 4.2 or later.

The Android version has also recently been updated that now has the option to disable the lock screen for talk screen, Hebrew detection has been fixed, fixed channel users blocking and muted user indication, and code has been removed preventing screen from turning off while talk screen is active. More updates are promised soon and the app can be found over at Google Play. Meanwhile BlackBerry users can find the app here at BlackBerry App World.

We have reported before about a similar push to talk Android app called Voxer and both the applications are gaining positive reviews from users. Have you used the Zello app?
