It freezes every time I go to listen to a message after I've closed the app. I have to completely get rid of it and open it again. Please fix! Other then that the audio works great.

Great app but...
I absolutely loved the app until the IOS8 update. It freezes every time I try to play message so I have to restart my phone every time to hear a new message. Please fix this because I love the app!!

App rules!! Love it
So I'm gathering that this app was given some attention in 2012, then devs lost interest. Then it seems they picked up again this last month, updated for 7, and got it going again. I love it, works flawless so far, simple, easy to use. Now.... PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE!!!!! Don't mess up a good thing with some horrible update that ruins it all. This seems to happen with every app I love. PLEASE KEEP IT CLEAN AND SIMPLE! I love it, don't ruin it!

Doesn't work well with iOS8
This app is nice but freezes a lot since IOS8. Also doesn't play messages all the time. And please add an option to mute the sound affects. I HATE the send and receive sounds!

Great app, but trouble connecting
It's not very consistent when it connects. But if it wasn't for the connection issue, this is actually much better at sending audio notes than whatsapp. It's actually easier to use. It's too bad it doesn't use phone numbers or contact lists on the iphone. The ability to use Facebook is descent. Stable network first, features 2nd.

Nice app but concerned about privacy and terms of service
Without a doubt, this is an elegantly designed and functional app. However, I'm concerned about privacy issues and terms of service. Unless I'm simply looking in the wrong place (I've been all through the Green Tomato website), I am unable to find any privacy statement or terms of service. Since this is a non-U.S. company not subject to American law, continuing to use the product gives me pause. What is the data retention policy? Does the company claim ownership of the voice clips and underlying message data? Does this company guarantee to not redistribute the user generated content or contact information (both app user and user's contact list) to third parties? Green Tomato seems to be a contract developer and mobile advertising outfit. I must wonder if this app is truly intended as a data mining tool disguised as a productivity tool. I'd very much like to see the publisher address these questions.

Fantastic. Been waiting for this a while now.
TalkBox is superior in most meaningful ways to other products (HeyTell is nice but has downsides, as users point out). TalkBox is simple and efficient, with a clear UI and immediate gratification. I especially like the ability to see the other person's incoming message as it's being created, and of course having the message history. And international voice messaging is free, unlike your carrier's IM charges. That said, I understand the dev's TOS give them ownership of recordings with the right to redistribute (and for which you are liable). While onerous, just be careful what you say, obviously. Like someone once said, never put in an email (or text) what you wouldn't want to see on Page One of the NY Times. Great technology otherwise!

Very good app.
I upgraded to 5 stars as I found out that there IS a way to play the messages continuously. Now perfect. I've used Whatsapp, Voxer, Zotell, Heytell, and this app. Here's the comparison. Zotell was no good. Very slow to start up. Push the walkie talkie button and it takes 2 or 3 seconds to start up. Heytell is good but has a 20 or 30 second limit. No text capability. Also plays the file automatically. I want to be able choose which file to play and when. Voxer is great. User interface is a little weird and it keeps nagging you to enter your phone number. It also adds strangers to your Voxer address book. Whatsapp is a pain to register. Good for texting. No good for audio chat since you have to download the file before you can listen to it. Finally, Talkbox is great. Interface is clean. Can do text, pics, and audio. The only thing is that if you have multiple messages it doesn't play the next message automatically. Otherwise great!

One thing needed......"Option"
I love this app,however it's been crashing for almost 3 weeks now!!! I keep sending crash reports but it hasn't been fixed. Also sometimes messages disappear one I click view to open. Maybe it's time for another update. Please fix this app. I've had this app for a long time now & I'm always up to date on the update...Unfortunately,it's been having a lot of glitches going on now. ;-(

Great App!!
It would be even better if you had th option to have messages that people send play automatically rather than taking the time to open the app. Maybe play the message, then get to choose to open the app directly in the conversation that the message came from? Just a suggestion for improvement, but still an incredibly useful app.

Very easy. Very fast. Takes over texting.
I'm a girl that gets bored of texting and talkbox does the job. I can talk to anyone from a droid to an iPhone for hours instead of calling or texting. Now I can even send pics and quick texts. I love this app and have it for 5+ months now. Better than Voxer!!!

My new favorite way to send quick messages to my wife
I dont like bugging my wife when she is at work with phone calls, but she finds it rather romantic that I send her little voice messages via TalkBox when I know shes having a rough day. Even sent her a pic of some flowers the other day through the photo feature. We love it around our house!

Great! But needs improvement with languages
This app is great and I'm keeping in touch with friends from all over the world however it's getting harder because the languages are sent backwards and it is hard to read.... Hebrew is written normally on the text box but when it's sent it is backwards and it is hard to communicate please please fix this

Simple, fast, effective!
Love this app, really like the gps location share too, basically like a virtual long range walkie-talkie with a chat log :) excellent for communicating internationally as well! P.S. Being able to block broadcasts would be nice I'm sure. I only have a few contacts right now, but it would be quite annoying to be spammed with nonsense all day

Love Not Having To Text!
The best part about this app is getting my point across to my friends right away. I love the group chat as well so a group of my friends can have a conversation together while being in different citites. I could see this taking over text messaging and everything will be all voice commands!

The best app off all times
App is so fast it's shocking the only thing this app need is short video message option just like voice 1 min at the time but if it's going to slow down the app than noooo. What ever developer decide to do in the future with this app just make sure it stay fast like it's now. Hands down best communication app ever.

Better than HeyTell! But can you add...
One feature I appreciated in HeyTell is when someone sends you their location it would zoom out so your location and theirs is on the screen automatically. If I needed to zoom in to see exactly where they were I could. I have made the switch though. Love the interface!

Excellent! I love it!
Talkbox is sooooooooo cool! Trust me! It's excellent! The best thing is that it's totally free. It definitely changes the way of chatting! It's more fun and enjoyable. And it doesn't cost much data! I enjoy talking on Talkbox! Jesus, how can you guys invite such a great application! Even if it would charge in the future, buy it! It's definitely of great worth! It's the best free app ever!

Please update
Hi just would like to note that I love this application as I use it on a daily basis. I have recently updated to the iPhone 5, and as you know the screen is bigger on the 5. I would also like to see some type of locking to this particular application as many others tend to use my device for various things. Some conversations do not need to be seen by prying eyes.

Great great app!
This app is one of the best IM apps out there. Is fast, easy to use and works fine with 3G or edge. I used pingchat and whatssapp and none of these apps are good to use like a radio. Also the images and location are fine! (high recommended for talk with the girlfriend without leaving nothing) and not to cold like text message. Keep working!! Best! From Argentina :)

Great app. Use when driving instead of texting. Anytime, better to hear someone rather than read.
What a terrific new way to connect with family members scattered around the US. So easy to send a voice msg like you send a text msg. Can't wait for continuing new features. I would pay for this app, it's so good!

Great idea...even better implementation
I'm giving it 5 simply because its one of those apps that has such a simple idea but taken to the next level by its implementation. I love the hold to talk button...feels like im on a walkie talkie and also helps the conversation to be really fast. The UI is brilliant...efficient and beautiful...full points on that. Of course there can be lots of possible updates but Im happy with just this too... If I had to suggest something would be to have this app across different platforms...cause that would just mean that many more people could use it. Great job!!!

Lovin' this app
This is a great app and I'm enjoying it really well. Good job!! One thing I would like is to have a "Mark As Read" or "Edit" button on the group conversations cause it gets a little annoying and there's too much lice clip o catch up on. So yeah.. Other than that,this app's perfect. *two thumbs up!*

I Love It!
I have an older iphone-3gs and have had very few problems with this app. I love it and want all my friends to get it. However, I got someone I work for to add the app and its not notifying her when I send a mssg and she has aniphone 5. Hope it continues to work great. Keep this app updated and it will be a top pick I am sure!

Good but needs tweaking
I like the program but the alert is not load enough when someone is trying to contact you. If it could be integrated using one of the alerts one the phone and able to open the program like when a text is received that would make it much better.

taking this on the mountains this winter with me for sure
Love this app. Definitely taking it snowboarding with me this coming winter. Walkie Talkies are always too bulky to throw into my jacket, and I hate having to type a text with cold snow fingers. I think it's going to make keeping track of my friends on the mountain way easier.

Good but could make some changes
Overall it's a good app. There are just a couple of things they could update. My friend got 2 pictures from me that I didn't even send but they won't upload. It's a little slow and keeps canceling messages for no reason!! Please fix this!

What I would never do with this app:
I absolutely do NOT use this app to respond to text messages while driving. If I did though, I'm sure it would be incredibly convenient and much safer than texting while driving. Which i also definitely do NOT do.

Great app all of my friends got it. Just one thing that bothers me... I think you should do something about the release of the button so that the massage won't cut the end some delay or something because it happens a lot to people.

Better than HeyTel !
Great app! Love that it let's you leave 60 second messages and conference calls. Only downfall is I don't believe there is a way to delete unwanted messages. If that update could be provided by history per contact then this would be a 5 STAR WINNER!
