Resources & People Mentioned

Voxer is THE Walkie Talkie for adults

Natalie reminisces about her childhood when she and her friends would play with Walkie Talkies. It was the coolest thing as kids. She even brought it into her teenage years—with a CB radio in her truck. Voxer allows you to revisit your childhood in a fun yet functional way.

The free version of Voxer allows you to communicate with up to 5 people in a chat. The pro version? Darla reports that it allows up to 500 people to interact. You can sync the app with the contacts in your phone, or pick and choose those to add to the app.

Practical applications for designers

There are so many logistics involved when it comes to install days, photoshoots, and simple communication with vendors and clients. The app makes communication fast and efficient for a designer. It can apply to other industries as well, such as first-responders and those in hospitality.

Your voice and intonation come across correctly, as opposed to leaving someone guessing with a text message or email communication. Were you sarcastic? Angry? Joyful? Guess no more. It makes communication with clients fun and engaging. Even better—if you accidentally record something better left unsaid, it can be deleted if the receiver hasn’t listened to it yet.

Darla and Natalie chat about the other details that make this app so enjoyable, so keep listening!
