Voice Calls and Instant Messages

Gone are the days when you need paper and pen to connect… well, almost. :)

I have recently discovered an app called WhatsApp… it allows one to send messages (even photo, sound, and voice files) to anybody from all over the world for free. I’m not just sure if it’s available on all phones or just on android like mine.

There’s also the very dependable skype where you could not only exchange messages but also do voice calls (and on-cam calls). You don’t even need a professional headset to be able to make calls.

A lot of advantages really… Saves time, saves money, saves paper, saves trees…

… and of course, saves relationships :)
