TiKL – Touch To Talk lets you instantly talk or text to one or more people with the single push of a button. To get started, you’ll need to make sure that your friends/family also have TiKL installed on their Android phones (or iOS powered devices like iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches). Next, add them to your list of selected favorites by finding them in your existing contacts list. However, in order to talk with non-Android phone devices, you’ll have to setup those contacts through Facebook integration (requires that you login/enable Facebook from within TiKL).
On the app’s homescreen, the drop down menu contains your favorite contacts and is where you choose who you want to talk to. Similarly, the “Call Info” button gives you details on whoever you are currently talking to. As for the app’s actual functionality, it really is quite simple (especially thanks to the giant talk-icon button). Once you hear the doorbell sound and have accepted the 2-way connection, you’re ready to go. To talk, press and hold the talk-icon button. Releasing the button gives a short beep and opens the line for the other person to speak.
- Instant 2-way communication with the push of a button
- Create groups of multiple contacts to talk to all at once
- Facebook integration lets you add iOS device users
- It’s free!
Areas for improvement:
- User interface is functional but could use a major facelift
Conclusion: With over 10,000,000 users, this is the best Android app for walkie-talkie style, touch-to-talk communication.
