New app allows you to leave message without making a call

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Ever need to get a clear message to someone without wanting to talk to them? Well there's an app for that. It's called Slydial.

Slydial now has a free app that allows you to leave a voice message to any contact with a US mobile phone number directly from your phone's address book.

Slydial voice messaging gives you the ability to save time and a potentially awkward conversation.

It could be a whole new alternative to one on one communication. "You know you have texting you have email you have phone and now you have this app which kind of avoids the conversation. We're becoming a society that's avoiding conversations but finding new ways to communicate," said app user Karen Yi.

For some, the attraction of the app isn't that they can avoid the stress of leaving a message the traditional way. It's that they are worried that someone may pick up.
