When I try the Watch App all that plays is static.


This is a good app

A Favorite APP

My husband and I have used this app for many years!! It’s so convenient and easy to use. We love it and can’t imagine not having it!!! Absolutely recommend it for everyone ?????

HeyTell & Football

My brother & I are LIFE LONG Kansas City Chiefs fans & every Game we stay in Contact with HeyTell. Play by Play, “Touchdown Kansas City” & good for another Chief’s 1st Down are always transmitted. It’s as easy to use as a two way radio & as quick. Even used HeyTell while he was stationed in Iraq . Thanks HeyTell for a GREAT App.. GO CHIEFS!!!

Finally a update.

After years it finally got a update. Seem to be working better now.

Most used app

This app is literally one of my most important apps. Easier than texting, safer as well. I have been using this app since 2010.

Was a great app but now crashing with IOS 13.2

I’ve used this app for years but after upgrading to IOS 13, things started to get strange, mostly with random crashes. Now after upgrading to 13.2, the app won’t even launch, just crashes. Best not bother with this app until they fix it.


I love this app bc it's so much easier to use than the voice recording features in all the other apps, but it's SUCH A PAIN IN THE BUTT TO SET UP. it's way too complicated to add contacts and connect with them. and it's next to impossible to convince ANYONE else to use it because of this. and if nobody else uses it, I can't use it... ☹️

Update Needed

You guys going to update this app and fix the bugs??? It’s been my favorite app use it like 1000 times a day. Need update now!!!!
