TalkShoe comes to iPhone
Community chat service TalkShoe has come to iPhone, bringing live phone calls together with online chat. The service presents users with a Web-based interface to host live discussions, according to Yahoo News, and is designed to facilitate discussions about podcasts or other events in real time as they progress. TalkShoe's new iPhone interface allows users to take part in community calls, while registered users can use an iPhone to conduct as well as manage those calls. iPhone users have access to a link that automatically dials in and participates in a call, allowing up to 250 people to talk together simultaneously.
TalkShoe enables users to join a discussion via a phone or computer, using Skype or Voice over IP (VoIP) services in addition to standard calling and chat. Users can also record calls automatically as a podcast and listen to them afterward.
The iPhone's Web interface presents three simple links titled 'Live Calls,' 'Upcoming Calls,' and 'My Calls.' A company logo and links to join or create a call about any topic follow, as well as a 'Learn more' link discussing TalkShoe usage.
