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.

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.
