Zello Walkie Talkie
Zello Walkie Talkie app has been getting a large amount of press in the wake of hurricane Harvey. With hurricane Irma now hitting mainlands I wanted to put it out there as it is a handy app.
As power and cell towers may be knocked out during the storms you may lose communications. As reported in the Tamp Bay Times "One thing the Zello app can't do, however, is work when there's no cellular data service or internet connection available on your smartphone."
The app's official Twitter account (@Zello) posted that "There is massive misinformation among users" about the app's capabilities. They followed up by writing that, "There has been some misinformation about Zello requirements. Please inform others: Zello REQUIRES Internet using either WiFi or cellular data network of at least 2G."
It's still a worthy app to download before the storm. There are many emergency channels avaialble and you have the ability to create your own channel for use with family and friends.
