The great thing about technology is it keeps getting better at helping us communicate. Now, there is a new tool, which helps fill out another slice of the communication spectrum. Click on the step-by-step pictures for a larger view.
Gibberin allows you to send spoken messages to your contacts through an easy to use iPhone app. So, for example, if you want to send someone a quick note, but don’t want to type out a text message or an email, you can simply hit a button, record a voice-note (aka a “gibber”), and send that note to whomever you like. There is no conversion to text. They get the full benefit of the pace, inflection, emotion and emphasis in your recorded note. The recipient can easily reply via Gibberin, using the app in the same manner.
This is easier than calling me, and having to wait for my voicemail (and risk actually having to talk to me!).
Install the Gibberin app on your iPhone and send me a Gibber. My handle is joe!
Here is how you use Gibberin:
First, download it from the app store. You can find it at the iTunes Store here. The app isfree.
Next, on the contacts page, hit the + button, and under the user name, enter my user name “joe.”
Next, send me a gibber!
