Jawbone, renowned makers of some of the most uniquely designed bluetooth headsets around, has just entered the iOS market with the release of their first app Thoughts. It’s essentially a push-to-talk type app that lets you send and receive voice messages to other Thoughts users – all for free.
Jawbone THOUGHTS lets you send quick voice messages to friends and groups. It combines the speed of texting, the collaboration of email, and the emotion of voice – all in one. Share whatever comes to mind – instantly – with anyone or save your Thoughts as drafts to review and send later.
The upside to the app is that even if the person you’re sending “thoughts” to doesn’t have it installed on their iDevice, they’ll still receive an email or SMS with a link to your message. And Thoughts will even transcribe new messages into text if you can’t listen to them at any given moment (like when your wife needs your undivided attention). It comes with 10 free transcriptions and more can be purchased within the app ($0.99 and $2.99 packages). If you’ve always wanted to check out walkie-talkie like apps on the iPhone, this certainly looks promising. Video promo after the cut…
