introducing innovative communications solutions, today announced its
Nov. 28 launch of its new Rallee app on Android

the service, and begin talking in real time with one or more friends
at the same time.
Themed groups: Themed groups enable users to jump on voice chats with
groups worldwide and talk about topics of interest.

click their profile pics to begin chatting.
Geo-targeting: Rallee's geo-location features enable users to find
people nearby to meet and chat.
Random functionality: Rallee's "Random Feature" enables users to
connect with people interested in talking about random topics.
"Rallee will be a catalyst for individuals and organizations to create
public and private conversations among fans, friends, or members - where
they can begin dialogues, voice their messages, and host meetings - with
anywhere from one person to one million people at a time," sid Tony
Bristol, Rallee's CEO, a Microsoft (News - Alert) veteran noted in technology circles.
"Rallee's push-to-talk and group voice messaging offer significant user
benefits over traditional text messaging, including enabling users to
express emotions through voice and communicate more quickly without
having to spend time and energy typing."

communications application for social and interest
networks, will use its financing and support from Rakishev to
