     Voxer allows you to turn your cell phone into a walkie-talkie! If you have a Smart phone you can download the app for free and talk to friends & family. I think this is a great way to connect with people especially when you are driving. You can send a message and keep your eyes on the road. You can also have groups and send the same message to everyone at once.
