CallThere: Talk to Randomly Selected Users Around the World

When we were younger, we loved having pen pals and talking on the phone (as all teen girls do). We waited in anticipation for reply letters from our pen pals, learning more and more about strangers from across the globe. In the age of technology, the art of letter writing has deteriorated; even phone calls have been replaced by texting and emails. To regain the art of personal communicating, we introduce you to the new app, CallThere, a telephony app where you talk to randomly selected users around the world simply by dialing the country code of the country or city of interest.

CallThere

You can say CallThere is like chat roulette, but without the surprise of naked bodies. besides being fun and interesting, CallThere is useful for those who are learning a foreign language, traveling to a specific region, and or those who just want to learn about other places directly from the area’s local people!

Calls on CallThere are completely free,  up to 5 minutes each, and users are already using it to talk to randomly selected users in the U.S. CallThere calls are voice calls made over the internet, the app does NOT use or reveal your phone number and does NOT use your calling minutes (it’s more like a Skype or FaceTime audio call). There’s no registration or login required to use CallThere. Once in the app, all you have to do is dial the country’s international code. For example, if you ant to speak to someone in Sweden, just dial 0046 to connect, dial 0055 for a user in Brazil, 0081 for Japan, 0091 for India, and 0034 for Spain. If you live outside of the USA, dialing 001 will enable you to enjoy a real-time phone conversation with someone in the US. Do you prefer to talk to someone near you? (within 500 meters), just tap the “Call Here” button to connect to someone locally. The CallThere app is available now for both iOS and Android. Why not download the app and connect today. Are you op

Are you openminded enough to get to know and have a conversation with a stranger from another country? Why not download the app and connect today.

Snap the Perfect Selfie: EmoFix vs. Hisy Halo Selfie Camera Remote Shutters

We’ve all heard so much about the Selfie Stick, but there’s one device that we think is even better, the Selfie Camera Remote Shutter. We have the pleasure of trying out two of these selfie wireless remotes, the uniquely shaped EmoFix Shutter, and the Halo Shutter for Android from Hisy, and today we share what we love about each.
