Hi there!  How is everyone’s spring break so far?  This winter weather is seriously not conducive to spring breaking.  I’m just going to go ahead and say it— Punxatawney Phil is a liar!

If you’re looking for a way to keep in touch with your friends during your week off, try out this new app called Voxer (http://www.voxer.com).  It basically turns your phone into a walkie talkie by recording a snippet of audio and sending it to your contact in real time.  Not only can you talk to your friends in walkie talkie fashion, but you can also send pictures and text through the app too.

The best news about the app is that you can use walkie talkie lingo and pretend to be a pilot!  Below are just a couple of walkie talkie codes you may want to use.

Breaker 1-9  I want to start a transmission
10-4  Okay
Big 10-4  Yes
Roger That  Understood
Over and Out  I’m done talking
Negatory  No
Affirmative  Yes
Do you copy?  Can you hear me?
Copy that  I heard you
What’s your handle?  What’s your nickname?
Got your ears on?  Are you on air and listening?
What’s your 20? Where are you?

The second best news about the app is that it’s free for both Apple and Android.

Also, while you’re here, make sure to vote on what you think is the best app!  The poll can be found to the right of this post. 
 
Over and out!
