Talkray is a free phone and text messaging service that you can use to keep in touch with the important people in your life. Whether you want to use it as a backup call service or turn it into your main option, this app offers a lot of functionality for a pretty unbeatable price.
Fun texting features: Not only can you send texts for free through this app, but you have some other interesting options, as well. For instance, you can take a photo to send along with each text straight from the texting screen, and you can record a message and send that if you don't feel like actually typing out your reply.
Contacts integration: You can access all of the contacts already stored in your phone through the app, so you don't have to go through the hassle of entering them all again.
Exclusivity: While all of the texts and calls you make through the app are free, you can only place calls or send messages to other Talkray users. That's great if you have a lot of friends or family who use the service. But if you don't know anyone with an account, this app won't do you much good.
Some bugs: The app did freeze during testing when trying to import contacts from the phone. We eventually had to close the app and open it again; and when we did, the contacts had been saved.
If many of your friends and family use this app, or if you have a group of people willing to all sign up, this may be a good option for free calling and texting. But you can probably never rely on it as your sole phone service because you wouldn't be able to call anyone unless using Talkray. But the app does run well for the most part, and it's completely free.
