Cool App-titude: TalkTo

November 20, 2012

We’ve probably all had the experience of calling a business and getting trapped in a maze of automated voice prompts—frantically dialing 0 and yelling into the phone that you want to speak with a human being. Well, those days could be over.

Customer service just got easier thanks to the TalkTo app for iOS and Android. Forget picking up the phone to call a company. With this app, you can simply text any business for information, appointments, reservations or whatever you may need.

Simply type in the name of a company you want to contact, from stores to restaurants, salons and hotels. Then send a text message just like you would to chat with a friend. The app delivers the message and ensures that you receive a text response.

Download the free app from the iTunes App Store or Google Play.
