    Thank you !!!

    After Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico was left in total devastation. Communications were pretty much nonexistent. Not knowing the well being of family and friends was a extremely agonizing. This app was one of the few means we had to communicate with the disaster stricken island and our families and friends. We were able to relay calls and messages stateside for other folks trying to find out about their family members too. I can tell you that it worked perfect!! I can’t thank you guys enough. I highly encourage everyone to get this to chat with family and friends and have it as a backup means of communications. This app with always be part my phone for the next “Just in Case” Thank you!!!

    Lots of fun

    I have never rated an app but this one brings so many laughs with the kids. I downloaded thinking I could use even if offline for emergencies. That is the only reason I took one star. In the event internet and cell towers are down its still not a practical way to give, and get imported information. However I have one daughter that does not live at home and one that stays hid in her room. With this app it’s like we are all back in the same room cutting up and they actually enjoy talking as a family on here. So for family fun , it’s great! And for the child that is not old enough for a cell phone yet but can watch themselves a few hours , it’s a nice way to keep in contact bc god knows he does not know how to answer a house phone . The only thing I would like to see is it work offline for true emergencies.

    Super cool Walkie Talkies app that is spot on

    Hi we have used an assortment of walkie talkies/ preps for work going on 32 years now also we use them for keeping in contact with our family and with 4 kids who love to pretend they are cops and robbers talking on the phone like they are Motorola preps. Very cool. So Zello is the coolest application this side of the Mississippi River. I can not speak to the inner working of Zello or how secure it is. Seriously I am sure it has some draw backs in the privacy area but if this is of serious concern they offer a commercial version that is $6.00 a month per phone and all two way goes through a DES 256 encryption but you pay for that. So if your not discussing the movement of “high value clients “ for executive protection ect. then this program gives you outstanding performance for very little visible intrusion. I have a iPhone 7 with latest IOS and the program ran perfectly from the start on both of our phone. Not a single glitch thus far. Very easy to set up and use. So if your looking for an easy walkie talkie application that work great then Zello is for you. For what it’s worth I am not compensated in any way by Zello or Apple. Remember helping some one in need is helping Jesus Him self. God Bless and God Bless America!

    Can I use it while playing music?

    My team uses Zello at work (can’t say what I do). I usually use the Zello app on my city issues phone (windows phone) but the windows version is horribly outdated, and can’t be updated. I would like to use my iPhone app because I prefer these features, but my issue is that I also plug my iPhone into the USB port on my patrol car to listen to my music. I had issues while doing this. Sometimes Zello broadcasts my music on the channel. Sometimes the music simply pauses during radio traffic. I’d like to be able to play music via usb over the car speakers, and hear the Zello communication over my phone’s speaker. Is there anyway to adjust these settings?

    Apple should incorporate this as a native app

    I was skeptical when I heard about Zello, but this works phenomenally well. If you like or need two-way communication functionality (like walkie-talkies or the old Nextel phones) then this app is for you. Very convenient communication and has probably saved lives in emergency situations when cell towers are jammed with phone calls. It’s been working flawlessly for a couple days since I’ve been using it. I would love to see Apple open up the ability to map the volume up button as a push-to-talk button. That would make this a 6 star app! It’s even got some great features I wasn’t expecting like quick replay of the last communication or replaying an entire communication. Channels can be set up to communicate with multiple people at once. You can set your status to available, unavailable, or only available to certain people. There are not many apps I’d consider game changers, but this one definitely is. Outstanding!

    Needs work

    They need to do a better job really /pushing/ the fact that you need WiFi. Everyone who told me about this app said its perfect for when the power goes out and cellphone towers are down and you can’t communicate with the outside world. That is when WiFi is down so uhhhh yeah. Very frustrating. I was just in Hurricane Florence and then Hurricane Matthew. Florence I thought it was just a glitch but then it also didn’t work during Michael so I just am very upset because that’s when I need it most 🙃 and when you click help, instead of taking you to like an FAQ page or something, it takes you to a website, which also needs internet 🙃 But outside of internet issues, the app is great. It really is like a walkie talkie for your phone and the basic UI is great.

    My opinion

    I like this app alot I got to make a lot of friends on it also i can keep contact with my family and friends . What I wish you bring back to zello is the fact we can make arabic users because not everyone knows how to read english users and alot of arabic people use this app and the idea of using volume up and down to catch a mic cause alot of people have a problem getting a mic from the screen also its annoying pressing mic from the screen when theres more then 15 people in a channel it used to be better in 2012, 2013 ,2014 & 2015 when we could do that , people now get annoyed from pressing mics from the screen and end up leaving . Thanks.

    Good but needs work

    I’ve been testing then using Zello for my search and rescue team for over 8 months now. I also use a Motorola XTS-5000 and a sitecast RF Box along with computer to patch our trunked 800mhz radio system to our Zello channels. I love the app and have tweaked the gateway to provide amazing audio and reliability in both directions. My only issue is this. Sometimes instead of passing audio in real time, the app stops passing audio and starts to store it on the phone. Then I have to go back and replay the audio. In our business this could be dangerous for the user. We won’t use it for mission critical ops without our users being trained on the passing audio issue. I hope this address at some point. All of our users are IOS.

    Best PTT app!

    I'm a radio geek and this app turned out to work better than expected. I still prefer traditional 2-way radios from Motorola and Midland. But what makes Zello a great alternative is you don't have to worry about range, FCC licensing, or compatible radios. Best of all, it has end-to-end encryption! You can also join groups and talk to people all over the world! The response time for broadcasts is nearly instant too. Almost like a real 2-way radio. If you want excellent PTT service with lots of features and/or want an extra tool for emergency preparation, you really should try Zello. As a radio geek, I love it!

    Used to be completely accessible with VoiceOver, isn't so much anymore.

    Is a good app. But its ridiculous that you'd decrease accessibility with VoiceOver. I'm having trouble getting out of certain screens. One of for example, when I click navigation menu and select one of the screens from there, I can't get out using voiceover without force closing the app from the app switcher and opening it back up again. Same for the screen to send an alert message to someone. I can't click cancel. And the send button on that screen isn't labeled for voiceover anymore. It doesn't make any sense. The one thing about making a good quality app is not making it worse and worse with every update.

    Zello works!

    I came across this app in use in a hotel that I worked at. We were all issued iPhones at the beginning of our shifts, as needed. What’s super cool is the fact that you could contact person to person if needed. No reason for housekeeping to hear that I forgot ranch dressing for room 809’s order. Conversely, you could alert multiple departments and individuals if there was an emergency. Since then, I’ve moved to a very rural area with a lot of open land. It was easy to teach my 80 year old stepfather how to use. Now, he and I can be in contact while acres apart. Super handy!

    Non existent customer service

    Zello wants you to get their paid service. Nothing wrong with that, except they deliberately refuse to provide support for the free app, all you have is the online faqs. I was on the phone today with a rep asking for help using group conversations. A simple question, after which I’d consider the paid version for our not for profit. I need to be able to compare features in the free vs paid before making a decision. Was flat out told that any q’s for the free app can’t be answered, support will only be offered for and if you sign up for the paid service. Guess what - was going to, but won’t be doing so now. Says a lot about a company they’re not willing to stand behind and offer FULL support to users for their product.

    Why isn’t it showing up?

    Hi! I really like this app. I think it’s cool that you can use this app as a texting and walkie talkie device. But when I tried to get my friends to get the app, they couldn’t because it wasn’t showing up or available on the App Store on their phones..I guess. I don’t know if my friends need an update or something, I’m very confused. It is a huge disappointment that I can’t talk to my friends on this app. I might as well delete it since I can’t talk to anyone. Anyway, I am hoping someone will read this and know what the problem is. In the meantime, I will be deleting this app and getting another one.
