Let contacts know why you’re calling before they pick up.

    Some Customer Care are using this technique on "call me back" requests


    Nothing that much innovative: it's basically just sending an sms before initiating the call

    The website if offline but the app is still on Play Store (guess probably forgotten) The idea can be good (tell your contact "I'm going to call you to...) so you're not losing the call or get notified to call later etc but I really can't see the need of an app for that.

    I was expecting something more "virtual" like a customized caller ID with a message (not sure if it's actually possible like with sms...) but definitely not an app to keep

    Giacomo Uberti has never used this product.

The app sends a text message with custom tags about why your calling someone. I don't think it's the best solution yet, but really like the idea and I'm curious to know where this is heading!

My opinion is that, I wouldn't spend some time typing why I'm calling them for.

Smart idea to handle one aspect of an actual problem. Personally, I dislike the phone for some of the reasons Dharmesh Shah has laid out in his article "Sorry, No Calls" -

The idea is interesting but I do have some reservations as it's likely to get abused by marketers and spammers. So now a company is going to text AND call me? Time to get burner phones :)
