Are You On Voxer?

Over the last few months, we have seen an app called Voxer grow in download popularity. In short, it is a walkie-talkie application for both Android and Apple smartphones. But, it really does pack a lot more than just that.

As soon as you set up the app on your phone, you will see that the layout is clean and easy to use. It automatically pulls in your Facebook friends and contacts that are using Voxer so that you can start chatting with them at the push of a button. You will also be notified as soon as another one of your connected friends joins the Voxer network. Also suggest the app to any of your other contacts.

You can chat with one other person or a group but, the most useful part is the versatility of how you can talk. Send a text message, a photo, or a voice note. The messages you send can include your current location on google maps. This could come in very useful if you are trying to meet with someone else; you no longer have to write out where you are and how to get there. For privacy, this is also a function you can disable.

Texting had become a huge part of the current communication, Voxer doesn’t take away from that but, reintegrates walkie-talkie use that you aren’t constantly stuck typing in messages to your phone. Talk to the people on your Facebook easily while also sending photos and location information.

Voxer is free to use and free of advertisements. Making it even more easy and enjoyable to use. For more information on Voxer and how to use it, stop into any of our stores in Ellington, Enfield, Vernon, or Stafford.

Express Is Going Green

Express Wireless has decided to go green by contracting Earthlight to provide us an analysis of how we can save money with our electric bill by changing all lights to LED‘s within each of our four stores.  This will substantially reduce the number of kilowatt-hours we consume each month reflecting not only a large savings on our monthly electric bills, but less consumption of energy and natural resources.
There is no out-of-pocket monies involved and the cost of the monthly payment to do this will be very close if not less than what we gain in savings each month in each store.  The monthly loan payment is also interest free. 
We are looking forward to saving 11,752 kilowatt-hours in our Ellington store annually and working with light which is more like daylight lighting.  How great is that – less kilowatt-hours and better lighting!      
We start the launch of our energy-saving movement in our Ellington location and are looking forward to continuing the change to the other three stores in Vernon, Enfield, and Stafford, Connecticut.

 More Green movements are soon to come from Express Verizon. Stay tuned to see how they could save YOU money!

The News on Nexus

Recently, a new device has joined the Android lineup at Verizon Wireless. The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is on a whole new level and new software version. It is the first device to be launched with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The phone itself has some pretty impressive specs, boosting a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core processor and 4.65″ screen with a High Definition Super AMOLED contoured display. For those who don’t speak tech, it’s super fast and has a screen with clarity that could knock your socks off. Multiple programs will run smoothly simultaneously and all of your pics, videos and games will have crystal clear, vibrant clarity.

Android 4.0 also brings in its own bag of upgrades to make your phone even more responsive and easy to use. Voice search and command is available from any of the home screens and new folder types will pop up also to shorten your access time to the programs you need.

Probably the coolest feature of the 4.0 upgrade is the new unlock option. Instead of fumbling with PINs and passwords you can know scan your face to unlock the device. No longer worry about forgetting the login to get into your device and ensure that no one else can access your most protected information.

Another new feature with the latest software is Android Beam. It is the next level of programs similar to Bump and Bluetooth transfers. Instantly share contacts, webpages, directions, apps and more with one touch. Not only can you show a friend the new program you are using, you can literally send it to them.

To check out the Samsung Galaxy Nexus stop in to any of our four locations in Ellington, Enfield, Stafford, or Vernon Connecticut.

Winterfest Was A Huge Success!

As reported:

WinterFest 2011 was a huge success not only for the Channel 3 Kids Camp but also for the community.  The event drew hundreds of supporters from all ages to take part in the events and also give back to the Camp. 

 The money raised from the event helps run the Kids Camp, which each year gives 4,000 children the opportunity to participate.

 ”It offers underprivileged children from throughout Connecticut the opportunity to experience the overnight camping experience very inexpensively,” said Kim Dion, who works with the camp.

Express Verizon was happy to be part of this great event and want to thank all who participated!
