use Jingle to send short audio blurbs to others
for friends and group subscriptions leave an audio blurb on the map or associated with a report
apple ripped off this OPEN idea in ios8 :( as have many other "original" app developers
but this is an OPEN STANDARD: Jingle, SIP, XMPP
This, too, is an excellent idea! Could IAX2 be used to combat mobile NAT misery?
This would also please "green" "thinkers" the useful idiots to those whose goal of world control through monetary policy dominion could pitch this under their "use less" energy campaign.

replaces texting with hands free verbal notes
think you mean codecs
I would always use Wide Band codec on LTE: I prefer audio fidelity
Jitsi is f/OSS, free open source, application with mature XMPP and SIP.
Jingle audio blurbs is a more elegant option than legacy push to talk.
Jingle Audio Blurbs can easily be a hands free solution.

this could save lives
audio description of issues instead of fiddley typing or voice to text fails.
will need options for those not grandfathered with unlimited data
but 8kHz silk does not use much bandwidth
allow poster to arrange codex preference
maybe offer merely three codex choices for easier server teanscoding to LOW speed device and voice to text cloud service
but more codec options for friends/groups/travelbuddies
