Over the past 100 years, tremendous developments have been made in the realm of communication technologies which have reduced the time that it would take for people to share ideas. From letters, telegraphs, to telephones, communication tools have always been at the forefront of technologies that increase the quality of life. Going back to one of the most well-developed realms of communication methods, voice messaging has formed the basis for the majority of mobile device usage, first starting off as a basic phone prior to expanding into the app space. With this, Parrot is one such app that leverages the hardware and software of mobile phones to enable quick and easy sharing of voice messages.

Deviating from traditional texts, Parrot utilizes voice messages as the core method of communication which has undergone a significant amount of technological evolution. With the app, users are able to simply record, play back, or share their messages with others. Beyond the simple functionalities of the voice recording app that comes preloaded with your phone, Parrot offers a substantial amount of additional value through functions such as identifying the optimal sounds levels, recording through different sources, and a simple interface that makes it easy to navigate past recordings. With these tools, users are able to avoid buying a dedicated dictaphone as the app offers the same functionalities with the hardware already available.

Apart from the basic features that many other voice recording apps offer, Parrot has more complex features that are highly unique. These functionalities include the ability to select the specific format such as MP4 or WAV files, enhance recordings automatically by stopping the recording if there is no noise, and even improving the playback quality even if it was recorded in sub-optimal settings. All of these features coupled with the easy-to-use interface make it a tool that can be applied to nearly any industry vertical from education to a professional business environment.

Even though the app is one which offers unparalleled features, there are many other competitors in the space who have other advantages over Parrot. For example, Facebook Messenger enables its users to record and send voice messages in conjunction with the text messengers that make it a more versatile tool to use. Furthermore, many phones come with a stock version of a voice recorder that offers basic functionalities, eliminating the need for a more advanced voice recording app. Even with these other tools available, Parrot is able to stand out by making available in-app purchases which differentiate it from the alternatives.

While the core features are free, in-app purchases that are offered additionally include the ability to record phone calls to ensure that whether business or educational conversations are made, important information is captured and stored in order to be referenced later. Furthermore, these recordings can be backed up to a cloud-based storage source to give it more accessibility and a secondary layer of security in the event that the phone is not available. Lastly, recordings can be scheduled to start at a specific time for a specific length if the user knows exactly when and what they will be recording. The combination of these in-app purchases that can supplement the free functionalities gives it an edge over the other apps which only offer the bare minimum.

Moving back to voice messages as a more efficient form of note taking and communication, the app is one which is extremely simple to use even with a suite of complex functions. Currently, it is only available for Android and Blackberry but with the growing demand and popularity of the app, expansion to the iOS App Store is expected in the near future. For a quick method of recording thoughts that can later be shared or played back, Parrot offers a perfect alternative to purchasing an expensive dictaphone or utilizing the basic voice recording apps that come preloaded.
