Zello is the most important app for Venezuela and Ukraine

By Bill Moore on February 24, 2014

The past week Zello has been the #1 overall app in Venezuela and Ukraine – more popular than Facebook or any other app.  Last year the same was true first in Turkey and later in Egypt.

After the largest ISP in Venezuela blocked Zello, team worked hard to update the app and restore service in under a day.

We are proud that  Zello’s social radio matters and are working hard to keep it available.

Press interviews and articles keep pouring in, examples below.
