If there is one thing that has forever been an issue with cell phones, it is messaging.  Let's face it, the blasted text messages take forever and a day to type a small collection of words, that could be just as quickly and efficiently said in a ten second voice message.  Plus, in order to use either text or voice messages it is required that users actually have a cell plan associated with their iOS device.

Thankfully someone decided to step up to the plate and design an application that can reunite the best parts of voice messages and make them work across the iOS platform, no matter the device.  The app in question is Jumvo, and simply put, it allows users to send voice messages across friends lists on Facebook, which then get propagated out to the end device.

Easily the best part about this interesting new tool is that it is available for absolutely free on the App Store.  People already bug their friends via Facebook Walls, so why not extend the reach a little further?


Voice Based Messaging With Jumvo

Hopefully of particular interest to those with mobility issues is Jumvo, an app that offers a group messaging service that's entirely voice based.

Offering the advantages of SMS texting, Jumvo allows users to log into it through Facebook, thus having access to their entire friends list quickly. There's no need to remember usernames, handles or phone numbers as everything can be done via the Facebook friends list. Users can then send individual messages or start a group orientated conversation thread simply by talking. The app uses the iPhone's proximity sensor so that it automatically begins recording once the user holds their phone to their ear. Push alerts then inform the user when a reply is received. It's all extremely simple.

The main benefit is the lack of interaction required. For those suffering from the likes of Repetitive Strain Injury, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome or Arthritis, it's not always as easy to text as it once was, making Jumvo an ideal way of incorporating similar communication methods without the pain.

The app is out now and it's a free download.
