[media-credit name=”MG Siegler” align=”alignnone” width=”260″][/media-credit]For many people, phone calls can become really awkward while talking to friends in real time and not knowing what to say.

But at the same time, texting is restricting because if you want to tell a story or give directions, you have to type a lot in order to get your point across and that just takes a lot of time that you might not have.

HeyTell is a free app for iPhone and Android devices that allows you to record your “text” and send your voice message to anyone with the same app.

The messages are also saved in sequences so you can go back and listen to them.

This is a great app for those people who don’t like phone calls or texting and for those people who liked the days of walkie-talkies, which is essentially what this app turns your phone into.

The app was created by Steven Hugg and Jen Harvey, husband and wife, who also created the company Voxilate in the Fall of 2009.

As MG Siegler says on TechCrunch, the key is that the messages are quick. It isn’t a formal conversation so there is no need for “Hello.” All you need is a simple message for friends or family that they can receive and reply to.

HeyTell is available on the App Store and Android Market.
