THIS DID NOT WORK WHATSOEVER 1/5
This is stupid!! It's supposed to work without wifi or cell phone towers, right?! WELL IT DID NOT😡 Don't get this thing! It only works with wifi! You're better off just using regular calling!! TRUST ME. SERIOUSLY. DO NOT GET IT.
Thanks for fixing bugs 3/5
Still does not work with the new iOS 11 Smart Invert option.
Apple should buy Zello! 5/5
Apple should buy Zello and incorporate it as a native app to provide a smoother experience. Then, either Zello or Apple, or maybe both should gift me a million dollars for making the suggestion. Thanks! You’re welcome! Apple, contact me when the check is ready.
This app is becoming one the most used apps on my phone!
Great App 5/5
I’ve been using Zello since it’s original beta came out MANY years ago!
Helpful During Hurricane Maria 4/5
The app became popular during Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. Lots of people telling each other about it. However, for some reasons there were misconceptions that the app would work even if there was no Internet. Did find it helpful during Hurricane Maria because there were a few people in Puerto Rico with a signal who made contact through the app with others. It quickly went viral. We were able to find out about the cities our family and friends live. Still awaiting to hear from them. Interesting how we were able to help each other out and see the true the value the App has to offer. Thanks.
No puedo instalarlo en el iphone 7
Great... Just lacking better Apple Watch & iOS 11 Support 4/5
Realty like how I don't need to pick up the phone to hear someone's voice... It just plays over the iPhone's speaker.
Needs to be updated to support rich notifications so that I can see pictures or hear messages via 3D touch. Also needs 3D touch on Home screen icon.
Finally, an app like this begs for the ability to send and receive audio and pictures through the Apple Watch app. These may be allowed now with WatchOS 4. Hope this is in the works.
Will compare to Voxer to see which has these features.
Need update please
Ios 11 pictures send and avatar chance not working
By Mr. Drewby
The app is a outstanding app for talking over the internet. The problem that I see is that when you update to iOS 11 it stops you from getting pictures from your library so you can show them.
Excellent ! 5/5
Great app that allows for live Voice communication on private channel.
Works great 5/5
By The Daywalkerneo
Made new friends!!!
Not worth it 1/5
During Irma we were told to get this so we could communicate without wifi. However it turns out that that is not the case and that we would have to use our data to make it work. But even when I had four bars it would not connect. My entire family had the app and it didn't work the entire time.
Does exactly what is says and works great.
Great During Irma 5/5
Not sure what others are complaining about, but this app worked great during and after hurricane Irma, without Wi-Fi, and even on 1g. We communicated instantly with everyone in our contact list. Was invaluable.
Zello doesnt work at allll 1/5
Didnt even work for me with 4g during irma
Did not work 1/5
This app didn't work during hurricane Irma. I had no signal and the app promised to work even if you didn't have any
Pure crap!!! 1/5
I was in the middle of hurricane Irma, and I heard this app would let me communicate without any wifi! --
Turns out, you CANT!!
So there I am, in the middle of a hurricane without power and wifi. Worrying about my family and friends.
Thank you for absolute nothing.
I would give it 0 stars but that isn't an option.
Next time a hurricane comes, which hopefully it won't, don't waste your time with this app. Use FireChat. Better than this crap.
Thank you for reading.
Cajun Navy 5/5
God Bless Y'all. The tireless work you ladies and gentlemen did for us in Texas and the people of Florida, will not be forgotten.. I hope to join y'all soon.
This app is amazing!! 5/5
Love the app
This app is full of a bunch of trolls! 1/5
By Absoultly love it
Was on this app for a whole 4 days and was so disgusted! People catfish you don't download unless you want a bunch of drama!
Works great with many options but not Bluetooth 4/5
Doesn't work when Bluetooth speaker is connected to phone. Not understanding the negative reviews. I can't speak to the misrouted conversations a few complain about. I haven't had any. Uses wifi and or data. It's not magic. NEEDS data. No data no talky.
Best app ever 5/5
Everyone has a stupid idea for a new app. As a hurricane Harvey volunteer with the Cajun Navy, I can tell you first-hand that this app helps save lives...
It doesn't work without excellent internet connection 1/5
This app works well just with excellent internet connection. Not good, just excellent.
Might as well use a real walkie talkie 2/5
This app is only operational if you have normal phone reception or a wifi connection.
In the case of some hurricane or other catastrophes where phone lines are down and reception is hard to come by, this app is completely useless.
Excellent app 5/5
Reliable, idiot proof and easy to set up.
I have read EVERY negative review out of curiosity. There are countless incompetent people on EVERY platform. Especially where you don't have to pay. The rest of us have to move on. This is an excellent app.
Civicnation why did you call the Nextel ranter "MRS./ Miss/Ms?" I can't recall which one you choose only that you assumed the ranter was female? I assumed the ranter was male...😁
Awesome app 5/5
Very reminiscent of NEXTEL, except better. I like having a history, send text and pics through the app. My only suggestion is the ability to put contacts in different categories, (work, friends, etc). Otherwise, cool app.
Love it 5/5
By Jacob 8079
Can to my family on wifi
Will not delete 1/5
I downloaded this app. Went to one station about hurricane Irma. There was some looser saying very vulgar stuff. I then went to delete the app. It will not delete. I even go into settings-general-manage storage to delete from there. It just keeps re-appearing.
The best app ever to troll people 5/5
By Plz fix the flash on your app
10 out of 10 better than twitch trolling
No para emergencias 1/5
Durante el Huracán Irma probamos esta aplicación. No se logró la conexión con otros usuarios y aumentó el consumo de batería.
It's great 5/5
It's a great app but I don't have any friends to share this great app with anyone
love this !
Peace of Mind During Irma 5/5
This app allowed us to be able to hear our daughter's voice to make sure she was safe during Tropical Storm Irma. She was without power and cell phone service! This app worked from Alabama to Georgia without any problems! Thank you Zello! I would recommend this app to everyone!
Almost Perfect 4/5
If it had buffering it would be perfect. I like it a lot. Been using several years. One of the best things about it is you can get notifications that someone is talking or calling you when your not actively using the app so you can listen to other things and still not miss anything.
I'll just say that hurricane Irma made this app useless and totally pointless. Thank god for texting. Zello = delete
Just like voxer meets chat rooms. 5/5
I've had so much fun for a month with so many people across the world!
Not a real push to talk app at all. 2/5
By Rational user
One would reasonably expect that, after initial configuration and listing of others with the same app, that one would push and talk. Not so.
Even with established contacts with the same app, pushing and talking merely results in a text message to the other party that you are trying to reach them. Worse yet, the beeping alert is identical to the alert most of use for incoming text messages that we pay no attention to. The called party has to then perform a. Umber of steps to turn their app on before anything else can happen.
In summary, useless.
Doesn't work 1/5
I tried it before hurricane irma worked fine. But during and after...when you have no power, no internet, and no cell service it's kinda pointless.
I told everyone this wouldn't work 1/5
I told everyone this app wouldn't work. I told my whole family after I heard it ran on wifi and didn't do what it advertised. But they all convinced me to download the stupid thing anyway. So I did, and the ONE time. THE ONE TIME I needed it, it failed to connect. So thanks for nothing. Phones don't work like walkie talkies do.
NOT GOOD FOR HURRICANES 1/5
You need wifi it's like the same as calling someone
Before this app I could not walk. As soon as I downloaded it,I was able to walk again! Then My wofe got cancer....I downloaded this app on her phone and the cancer went away! Thank you guys for making this app yu saved my families lifr
Great App, Work Perfect,Really Clear. 5/5
By Victor Levin
Excellent App, Work Perfectly, Is like Nextel back from the future Super Clear Communications and Fast.
Not what it claims to be 1/5
This app needs wifi. Not what the app claims. Deleted
Isn't a good app. Everyone was talking about this app before de hurricane Irma. Once we really need it doesn't work without internet.
don't bother 1/5
this app is a joke...you need cellular or internet. not helpful if those services are lost in a storm.
Great for Hurricane Irma 5/5
This app helped me stay in touch with my family when no other phone line worked. Highly recommended.
Zello should Donate to Victims 5/5
Zello has gained popularity as a result of Hurricane Harvey and Irma. While I think that the app is a great idea and can help many, I also think that those profiting from this situation should give credit to where credit is do and donate to the Hurricane Relief Funds. If it wasn't for these horrible incidents, I would say only 5% of those who downloaded this app would have normally. So my suggestion is any revenue generated in September should go to those who relied on your app for help.
