Talk by Path: We're all about efficiency and we consider most voice calls to be inefficient. However, there are times when we need to contact a business for information that isn’t available online. Talk by Path is an app that allows you to text businesses for free. Just download the app and text away. The great thing about this app is that all the interactions are with humans so there are no limitations on what you can ask.

Mark the articles you’d like to come back to and Pocket saves them to your device so you can access them without wireless service - perfect for long plane trips or relaxing on the beach.
