Does anyone use Voxer? I found out about it via this blog on socialbrite.org
Voxer is a free walkie-talkie style phone app that lets you talk to anyone in the world using live text and voice. It also lets you send photos. "Voxer really does works just like a walkie-talkie — only better, because it records all your messages for playback later. It’s especially great for international organizations and aid workers who can use it to communicate with other program and headquarters staff. No dialing or adding country codes, just hold down the talk button and talk! Brilliant and super intuitive app. Use it on just about any mobile device."
It isn’t specifically designed with aid workers in mind, but according to the blogger, Caroline Avakian, "it is the app I most often use when working abroad." However, the blog is from January 2014 - the app is still around, but not sure if she's still using it.

Agreed -- Voxer is pretty cool. My family uses it.
It breaks down, however, when there is no cell service. In those situations, you'll need to switch to something like one of the following:
