    Why do you state Talkie is the only app that is a walkie talkie on both Bluetooth and WIFI when there has been one around longer than yours called, Walkie Talkie of all things? http://domain17.net/walkietalkie/ You have a glitzier site but you’ve shot the heck out of your cred by first lying about your status and that of your competition, next by being being vagabond and non-substantial. Living in a camper is not a good recommendation. Your site almost had me until the deceit unraveled.

      Hi Steve! Wow, that was a brilliant rant!

      For the record, I did have a look at the other Walkie Talkie apps and couldn’t find any that were dual Bluetooth and Wi-Fi like Talkie. The app you mention is included in that category: If you read its description, you’ll see there’s no mention of Bluetooth.

      Thanks for the kind words about the site, we do try, deceit or no.

    If I may add my 2 cents… the application mentioned by Steve is pretty old, has a very ugly UI (does it even work in Snow Leopard without Rosetta??), and doesn’t allow the smooth toolbar integration provided by Talkie for Mac.

    Just heard about your Talkie Mac app on the Mac Geek Gab podcast and I was so excited to get my hands on a copy, now I’m quite disappointed that it’s not available and there’s not way for me to even use it from my Macbook Pro to my iMac downstairs without a license or serial number. I’m more than happy to pay you $5 or even $10. What are the chances you can get me a code so I can unlock this little gem. I won’t ask for future support or features, I promise. :-)

      Cheers for the interest, Jamie – you’re making me regret decommissioning the app, now ;-) I just emailed you a licence key

    Just heard about about Talkie for Mac app on Mac Geek Gab and I was hoping to use your nice software, but it seems that there is no way for me to use it from my Macbook Pro to child’s Mac Mini the without a license or serial number? I’m more than happy to pay if works. Is there a chances i could get a license code so I could try your program? As Segovia said, I neither won’t ask for future support or features, I promise! Thank you!
