Loudtalks brings voice back to the Internet communications. It's a little application, which allows you to talk to your friends or colleagues instantly with a single touch of a button. Think walkie talkie. It's faster than text chat and more convenient than calls. It supports one to one and one to many communication. Incoming messages could be re-played. The application is fast and lightweight and doesn't require any configuration.

From the Author

The story

When asking a person, who is at a distant location, a quick question most people would prefer a text chat over a phone call. Phone calls (even free ones) lose to instant messaging because of the ritual associated with them, which makes things too complicated. Phone call requires focus and dedicated time from all parties involved, which is difficult even for one-on-one communication and nearly impossible for larger groups. Everybody who ever tried to arrange a conference call knows this.

At the same time, if you want to ask something a person sitting next to you, you will most likely use your voice. If you want to announce something to the people in the room you will just say it aloud.

There is no reason why humans should prefer to use a keyboard to communicate. Especially a tiny mobile one. Loudtalks is about voice communication without calls, instant messaging without typing.

The experience

You have something to say — you push the button and say it. That's it. No typing, no typos, no calling, no busy signal. Group communication with Loudtalks is just as easy — everybody participates at his own pace and the entire group stays tuned, without interrupting their normal activity. Public safety services use this method for ages and there is a good reason for that. It simply works.

The technology

Loudtalks is based on p2p-architecture, which allows scaling easily, and proprietary protocols optimized for real-time communication over low-bandwidth and high-latency connections such as GPRS or EDGE.

The difference

Loudtalks isn't a Skype clone. Here is why:

Skype is essentially a free internet telephone. Loudtalks is different:

*Loudtalks is much faster. When you want to speak you just speak — there is no need to schedule a call or dial just to learn that the person is not available or

ready for the call at the moment

*It's asynchronous and unobtrusive. You can answer when you like.

*You can receive messages even if you are not on the PC and listen later

*You can have multiple independent conversations simultaniously

*Group communication is so much easier with Loudtalks — no scheduling or dedicated host is required, you just speak to the group and they respond, when convinient

*We support closed loop delpoyment scenarios and deep integration with your software.
