Came across this blog post on twitter today and had to share it.

I really love tip number 4!
This app is a cross between a texting app and a walkie talkie. You have the option to send a text, add a photo and send a quick voice comment to people in your contacts list. App Screenshot
I can click the play button to hear my message to Doug or listen to the audio clips he sent me.
If I hold down the orange button I can send him a new audio/voice message. How might I use this in my life or classroom?
Check out this post on EdTechReview about using Voxer in your school. Education Week also wrote about Voxer.
A wicked cool way to communicate to your children on any wifi enabled device.
(I kinda love this app. I used to love walkie talkies as a kid. This gives a similar experience without all the static and 9 volt batteries.)
Want to take it to another level?
Do you follow the #moedchat on twitter? They created this google doc you can add your voxer contact info to. Sometimes you need to say something that just won't fit into 140 characters and that is where Voxer comes in.
