New Cool app: HeyTell

Hey school counselor friends, I have another great (free) app to share with you...HeyTell is an app (which can be used on your iPhone, iPad, Android & Windows phones) recommended to me by counselor and blog buddy Vanessa from Savvy School Counselor.  We work in the same district and talk and text pretty regularly.  She recently suggested that we start using HeyTell which allows us to communicate short voice messages to one another.  It's soooo awesome!!!!  Just think of instead of sending a text message you send a quick voice message to your buddy (like a walkie-talkie).  No more misspelled words in your texts (I know I'm NOT the only guilty one).  Here are a few screenshots of the the app:

Just hold the button on the screen & speak, simple!

Just tap on the time you want to replay/hear the message.

You can even email your messages (you can only email your actual voice recording, not the person whom you're talking with)

So the question is how can we use this app in our school counseling world?   I haven't quite figured out all the logistics with this for students yet (you need a login).  This is a great way to connect with friends, family & other school counselors.

Keep reading, I'll continue to share more counselor apps. Pin It
