"Over the past few years, we have noticed that voice chat and video calls, although connecting us to a certain extent, failed to help us express our ideas clearly when we worked in a remote manner," Tamai explained. "The idea for VoxyPAD came about because we realized that ideas needed to be exchanged at the fundamental level--visual images, illustrating tools and access to useful content--wherever we were."
The app is available for download on iOS, Android devices and Windows PC across all four plans—the basic plan is free, the premium plan costs $1 per month or $8.95 per year and the business plan costs $2 per month or $19.95 per year.
