AUSTIN, Texas, March 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Admit it, typing and sending a text message on a smartphone can be a real pain.  With Holler!, you can communicate via voice IM with anyone (either in your contact list or just a phone number) without having to type on a touchscreen or mess around with auto correct. Quick, convenient and accurate, Holler! eliminates the possibility of misunderstanding, which often happens via text. 


Today at SXSW, OneTok is delivering the best of both worlds with the introduction of Holler! beta.  Holler! extends traditional voice mail and lets you respond instantly without having to call the person back. This service combines the ease of speaking, just "Hold to Holler!," with the instant, asynchronous features found in texting.  In addition, the company is developing several unique features that currently are not available on any mobile voice mail service.

Holler! lets mobile device users send instant voice messages to anyone or any group of people in their mobile contact lists, to any phone number and to landlines.

"Holler! brings far greater flexibility to people in the way they want to communicate that isn't available today.  It gives the billions of people who respond to voice mail with texts a simpler way to respond," said OneTok CEO Ben Lilienthal.  "Voice is the easiest form of communication but is being overshadowed in this text-crazed world.  Holler! makes life easier by allowing people to speak their responses instead of having to type them."

Holler! is available for free download for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and iOS today in iTunes. It will also be available soon for Android and BB10.  Additional paid services will be offered in the near future. For more information, visit  Download Holler! today and enhance or upgrade your voice mail service immediately.
