    I haven't been around this forum for a little bit but who here is using TiKL (Touch to Talk)? I have found this app to be outstanding and a must have. It basically turns your phone into a walkie talkie or a Nextel if you will. The person on the other end has to have the app installed as well, but it's great.

    I also love how it uses data instead of airtime. So if you don't want to text and don't want to use airtime, it's a must have. I also prefer it to texting in a lot of instances because you can quickly just ask someone something without typing and all of that jazz. And best of all, it's free.

    Here it is: TiKL - Touch To Talk (PTT) - Android app on AppBrain

    I like to use this app to yell curse words at my girlfriend while she is with friends or at work. TURN YOUR PHONE OFF WHEN YOU'RE BEING SOCIAL OR WORKING AND YOU WOULDN'T HAVE THIS PROBLEM! You'd figure after the 12th time or so that she'd just uninstall it...

    LOL

    I have this app as well, but I haven't used it even once. Just about everyone I know has a wackberry. I only know one person with an Adnroid phone. Unfortunately, the app only works with the Android OS. Hopefully, they'll make this app available for other phones.

    Both phones needs to have android and this app installed, correct?

    Yeah both phones need to have the app installed and I'm pretty sure they also have to be Android phones. I don't think TiKL is available for any other operating systems. I know for sure it's not available on BB's.

    You are correct. I have a buddy at work who has an iPhone and the app is not available. Both phones need to have the app installed and both phones need to be android.

    Just an FYI for those using TiKL - the newest version has a DND feature, and the other way around getting TiKLed when you don't want to is by turning down your media volume.

    TiKL is a great app that is still in its infancy stage. It's a great tool for communicating with people who don't have reception at their homes, but do have WiFi.

    how is this app with battery life. when I downloaded it, there was something about not letting the phone sleep. I love the app if its not going to rape my already short battery life

    I can't speak directly to the battery life question but I can say that it does constantly run in the background. Once installed, if you check your list of running apps, it will be in there until you force close it

    Use this app all the time to mess with my buddy at work. He doesn't know how to turn it off. I use task killer to shut mine off. He doesn't, and therefore gets messed with :D

    I have been wanting to get this program but I currently only know one person who has a android, and I really don't talk to him much. Guess I will have to wait for now :(

    Mine runs in the background. I kill it. It starts up again...grrr

    Yeah it runs in the background but has anyone done any tests to see how much more it drains the battery, (if at all)? Some programs will constantly run but don't really have much effect on the battery, i.e., photoshop mobile.

    Been using this for a week + and dont notice ANY battery drain from it. Only problem is the app has a few bugs, but for the most part it kicks butt!

    Does anyone know what port this app uses? Mine only works on wifi, so I assume it is because my carrier is blocking the port(s) required by TiKL.

    This is a cool app, and it is available on the iPhone. I told an iPhone user about it the other day and he DLed and it worked just fine. Pretty cool...
