CB Radio Box Preview

CB Radio Box

Developer Team: GEKKO

Coding: Gekko
Graphics: GilmoreVisuals

In a few days we are soon to release this new app: CB Radio Box.

The app will allow you to connect and talk to other people that also have the app. With 100 public, private and language based channels the app can be used for multiple uses.

We will be updating the app frequently - one thing planned is location finder on google maps to find out where the other users are from that you are talking to.

This app won't just be chat, but we want to re-create the emotions felt back in the 80s and 90s with the idea that you can talk to strangers and no one knowing who you really are!

Suggestions, comments and critiques are welcome.

Here are the latest screens of the app. (note: the pink image is an example of the themes we offer)

Welli'll be the first to chip in and say this is intriguing

We are just fixing the last bug and we will submit to the store and start to collect community suggestions.
Could be much interesting to add a TouchArcade channel in future updates.

This looks epically awesome! CB radios were awesome back in the day....when people used them before the Internet and cellphones.

I have to admit, this has got me intrigued, especially in emulating the relative anonymity and feeling of the CB radio days. I'll be interested to get TA users impressions once this comes out, and maybe give it a spin myself.

Is this still coming out? Or is it dead in the water? .....

Guess nothing is happening with this...

Dead in the water I'm guessing. Too bad. This would have been one cool app.
