If you ever feel confined by social networking restrictions, what you need is the Just Sayin App – Twitter on Steroids, as we like to call it. I’ve been testing out the live Beta of this voice application (which embeds your voice messages on your social networks) for a few months now, and I am totally addicted, well we do know I get addicted easily to brilliant apps or software but this just blows your mind, seriously
Cloudtalk has now announced the release of Just Sayin’ App which is FREE voice application on iOS and Android, and now there is also a web based version.
What the story about the Just Sayin App ?
Just Sayin was a voice application which was founded by Cloudtalk a few years ago. Sadly though the previous versions were ahead of their time, and certain things just didn’t go according to plan. CloudTalk built the first cloud-based platform for hosting any social communication with voice as a central part of the user experience. However it was back again to the drawing board the Just Sayin voice based application and not giving up, Sami Yousif Director of Social Media & Creative has been working hard over the last year with his team to get it right.
We spoke to Sami Yousif to find out exactly what had to happen.
“I Re-Architected the workflow, redesigned the UI and UIX. Changed the focus of the app so that it is more of a Utility to Twitter and Facebook. Implemented several features that were not part of the Original app, including: Private Messaging, Embedding the audio into Twitter, Photo posts on Facebook now have larger images and adding video. As well as making it easier for people to find new users with the Latest Tab, Hot, and Trending.”
Now, Just Sayin is the first voice conversation application for social media which allows cross posting to Twitter and Facebook.
With this application you can not only talk to your followers on Twitter using their @name you can also include either a image or video and text along with your voice, so you get a lot more power to your message.

This image is what it looks like from sending an app from Just Sayin App to the Tweet arriving on Twitter
And the best thing is that users don’t need to leave Twitter or to even have the Just Sayin App to listen to/view/or watch the message – they just click the link and a box opens like this
So, thats Just Saying App – Twitter on Steroids – of course you also post to Facebook and maybe even Google+ later, but I think its just so perfect for Twitter. Its been hard for Sami to get the bugs ironed out and there is another update for the iOS app coming this week which should be the final one.
And also shiny and brand new is the Just Sayin App website, where you will be able to put full length pod-casts and videos, and do everything you can from the application, which is what we all love in an application. You also get your own vanity URL so snap up your account soon before your name goes.
