Alternative PTT App – Introducing YAPT
If you have ever used PTT (Push to Talk) services in your devices, you may be interested in what XDA member mcnaz has brought to the table. YAPT is an app that works in a similar manner to a regular PTT application. However, the way the messages are sent to the other user is what separates this app from the others. The messages you send will show up as text messages or e-mails, so it will give you the freedom to reply whenever you see it convenient.
Give it a shot and leave some feedback for the dev.
I am hoping this is the right place to announce my first Android app. If not then please do accept my apologies in advance.
YAPT is a simple & free voice messaging Android application that enables sending short voice messages from one YAPT user to another.
Its abit like Push to Talk and not like Push to Talk – for want of a better description . Its different from Push To Talk in that voice messages are handled like emails – so these are received in your YAPT inbox (with notifications) and can be replied to at your convenience.
I built YAPT because I love the idea of Push to Talk but find it inconvenient that anyone can contact me and my Android’s speaker phone could burst into full volume at any instant.
You can find more information in the app thread.

You can find guides on how to revert...
Once again, we have arrived on the most magical of holidays - the annual unveiling of HalfLife 3, and day on which co-workers believe it is appropriate to duct tape air horns behind doors. I speak, of course, about April Fools Day. As has become their custom, Google launched lighthearted "pranks" for each of their various services (with other tech sites and vendors following suit), and we have done our best to round up the humorous products and tweaks surfacing thus far....
