Voxer for Windows, Voxer for WP, Push to talk messages

Voxer is one of those communication applications that seemingly has a hard time not winning an award . Back in November, its professional grade Voxer Business app won Best Overall App at the first annual Silicon Valley Business Awards and then Voxer won the Mobility Tech Zone Product of the Year award in May.

Now the company has announced that it’s on the short list for another award, being named a finalist in the productivity category of CTIA’s Hot for the Holidays Awards competition that will be taking place at the Connected Live Zone stage on Wednesday, September 10. The Hot for the Holidays Awards recognize the hottest mobile consumer electronics — gadgets and accessories from entertainment and health to the connected car and home — just in time for the start of the holiday shopping season.

“Super Mobility Week attendees will see what will be the next hottest devices and services”

“CTIA awards recognize the best and most innovative products and services for wireless companies looking to improve their operations and their engagement with their customers,” said Robert Mesirow, Vice President and Show Director at CTIA. “Perfectly positioned for retailers to prepare for the holiday buying season, Super Mobility Week attendees will see what will be the next hottest devices and services.”

For those that aren’t aware, Voxer is a free walkie-talkie or push-to-talk (PTT) service that has both consumer and professional editions with which users can share recorded voice messages, text messages, photos and location sharing from any mobile device, instead of needing a separate walkie talkie device. The app is available on iOS, Android and Windows Phone and can be used across WiFi and cellular networks for instantaneous voice communication.

“users can be up and running right away, communicating with each other or in teams, across geographies”

“Our goal at Voxer is to provide real time communications – including voice, text and multimedia – across any mobile device, and this recognition validates our efforts to help people increase their productivity through efficient communications,” said Irv Remedios, president, Voxer. “With just a quick download from app stores, users can be up and running right away, communicating with each other or in teams, across geographies.”

Those who attend Super Mobility Week on September 9, 10, and 11 at the Sands Expo & Convention Center in Las Vegas, as well as online users, will also have the opportunity to choose a “Crowd Favorite” by voting for their favorite product, not just finalists, in each program. Online voting is open now and runs until Monday, September 8 at 5:00 p.m. ET. Super Mobility Week attendees can still vote via text onsite starting September 8 until 10:00 a.m. ET Wednesday, September 10.
