Pros and cons of Zello Walkie Talkie app for iPhone and iPad
Zello Walkie Talkie app good for
The quality of this application is good, but it could be much better. Instead of 16000 hertz, it should be 48000 hertz. This way, people can get extra clarity on their messages. 16,000 is good, but 48,000 is much better. Also, a few accessibility improvements could be made better.
#teamiphone&android...this app works perfectly for both brands of phones!! I love it its fast simple and easy to use!! Very creative app reminds me of Nextel days! Bleep Bleep!!!
Works like its supposed to. Its easy and free to sign up. Id like to be able to assign a different PTT button on the iPhone version as its a little weird to multitask and having to use the button on the screen. Other than that, no issues.
This App works perfectly! I have no complaints whatsoever and its super simple to sign up and free! So knock yourself out a hit on the air.
Im literally in Alsip, IL and my family is in Sacramento, CA. I have clear communication with my family!
This app is amazing. In a way its a thousand times better than an actual walkie talkie because your range is limited only by your cell phone connection. For productions its great because you can create different groups for different departments. You can also send media over a transmission if you need to show someone a photo. Say you send an intern or a props person to the store to grab an item and when they get there they have a question. To gain your approval, they can radio you and send you a photo of the item they are about to purchase. You cant do that with a regular radio. The app runs in the background and can work with headsets or headphones if you are on a silent production. It may not look as cool as a real production radio but its better in a lot of ways. And its much better than just calling with a regular cell phone or using text messaging because you just can just press a button and immediately transmit to any group or individual you want. This is a GREAT APP!!!
Some bad moments
I loved using this app, but after the latest update I cant even sign in to use it.
I was there during Nextels inception. I remember 3:1, and then going 6: 1 compression for dispatch. Although Zello uses voice over IP, Nextel used an actual time slot on a T1 connection. I remember merging with sprint in 2005, and they (sprint) tried to come up with a PTT dispatch. It too was voice over IP. Its latency was not as bad as Zello, but never matched, nor came close to NEXTELs dispatch PTT. I have seen Zello latency pretty high (1124ms), and didnt think anything of it. Its free!!!
I didnt realize how well we had it, until it was gone... meaning we shut down the NEXTEL network across the nation in 2013. What took 13 years to build from the ground up, took sprint only 13 hours to shut down completely. Sad.
Just this morning, I could hear my brother talking to his coworkers on Zello. I am not in their group, and my Zello application was turned off, and I was logged out of Zello. This should not have happened. I should never have heard the conversation my brother was having with his coworkers. I was at home, but could have been anywhere, and had i been on a special assignment, this would have compromised my position. Sad.
I have since removed zello as of 30 minutes ago.
Why does the app has to be running in the background unlike android?
The app loses signal all the time, especially in midsentence well transmitting. Tech support is never available. Over seven documented email sent with no response. Updates do not address the issue. It reminds me of the old Nextel chirp system we are the signal always dropped. Sometimes you cannot recover the last message received after a drop signal.
It used to be a lot better. Using iphone6. Now it just closes whenever it wants and you have no idea it even closed. I constantly go back into the app and its alway disconnected. It Doesnt save messages in history. It used to stay open for days and save all the messages but not anymore. Someone please fix this app asap!!!
Very disappointed by the way its set the options in menu. Very Hard on to understand how to use this app , specially how to add new contacts. Used it few years ago , loved it much more . Now big disappointment .
