Zello saved my Coachella camping group!
I direct a caravan of 15 cars from a superstore parking lot to the Coachella camp grounds each year. It’s a challenge as there are many traffic lights that can split up the group and a few turns. Thanks to this app I was quickly able to alert 2 cars that got off I-10 at the wrong exit and they were quickly able to rejoin our group. (no one fessed up to it 😝) We also found it handy during security check as the group is forced to split up a bit. We would have lost another car during group meetup too; the verbal communications made my instructions clear enough for my friend to disobey an ignorant traffic directors orders, escaping with them yelling in the background and successfully rejoining our group (don’t try this at home, kids). We didn’t use it much during the fest as the group has other means of chat. We’ll definitely use it again in future years!
Developer Response ,
This is exactly what Zello is perfect for - thanks for your caravan story! Just wondering what you used during the fest instead and why. In addition to voice, Zello has other standard chat features (texting, image and location sharing, call alerts)
Change how you view messages
Please change when someone leaves you a walkie talkie message and how you view it.
Now you have to go to the little blue dot to listen. It would be great if you could have a message that stays on the home screen should you miss the original message and then you just press it to listen while it is displayed on the home screen. HeyTell is an app that has this as a feature. I have turned on a lot of people to this app but all don’t like how you have to go to the blue dot to listen. Again if you miss the walkie talkie message it should be in the home screen and then just hit the message to listen...much easier....please change this and this would make it great.
Update.......so now you can’t can send a walkie talkie message and it stays on the screen but fir how long? Please update app so it stays on your phone screen until you listen to it. Nobody knows once it goes to the blue dot to listen to message. Again The HeyTell app leaves it on your phone screen until you listen to the message. Change that and this app will be excellent. Sometimes a leave a walkie talkie message and after so long the person never gets the message because they can’t see it.
Compleatly steering away from voiceover
This was the go too app when blind users wanted a app to chat that was fully accessible all the way threw
Now the voiceover users can barely use to do anything
1 we can’t add people to our contacts because there is no add button when we click on any 1’s profile
Same with the channels we can’t add any Channel because there’s no add button when we Serch for them so the only way to get in to them is being invited
2 we can’t send any 1 in our contacts a alert because there’s no send button or anything for us to press and send and to top it off there’s no way to back out of it either so we have to close the app and then open it again to try to do anything else
3 there’s no way to cancel or to back out or save or update our profile so if we tap on profile for anything again we have to close the app and then open it again to do anything else
Also can’t update our about or our name because when we tap on 1 it just jump to something else or doesn’t open the text field so we can change our name or our about info
Same with options no back, save, done or update button so if we want to change any settings when we’ve made changes we 1 more time have to close the app and open it get to anything else
Please fix and make accessible for us blind voiceover users
