Re-Inventing the Phone Call

It’s undeniable that the phone call has become outdated as a form of communication when compared with more flexible forms like email, texting or even photo apps. A new app Talko is reinventing the call by merging all of the above formats (as well as the ability to archive conversations) with likely even more as time goes on, by combining both presence and playback. So you can remember where you last left off in a business meeting, but also remember the most important calls—like news of an engagement or a baby’s birth. It’s time to use our voices and ears again!
