Free walkie-talkie app tops App Store charts ahead of Hurricane Irma

  Free walkie-talkie app tops App Store charts ahead of Hurricane Irma With the Category 5 Hurricane Irma, now one of the strongest hurricanes ever recorded in the Atlantic, on its way toward the Caribbean and possibly the southeastern tip of the US, a little-known walkie-talkie app has shot to the top of Apple’s App Store. The free app, called Zello Walkie Talkie, lets your phone communicate as a two-way radio so long as you have a network or Wi-Fi connection. What makes it useful is that it allows immediate voice communication to others in a shared channel, as opposed to having to place a phone call and hope someone on the other end picks up.

"Last run to the store for # irma hurricane holdover prep while bracing down in Orlando — we didn ' t have the option to leave so here we are," Bell wrote on Instagram Friday. "Just doing our best and trying to stay positive but cautious, and trying to help those who need help prepping."

"Last run to the store for #irma hurricane holdover prep while bracing down in Orlando. We didn't have the option to leave so here we are," Bell wrote alongside a picture of herself and Disney World Swan and Dolphin Resort employee, Gary. "Just doing our best and trying to stay positive but cautious, and trying to help those who need help prepping. Every person I passed today was assisting someone else- #neighborshelpingneighbors - it was beautiful to see."

"Sad that a hurricane has to bring out the best in everyone, but happy that the community will be holding hands through this," she continued. "I'm grateful to Gary and the team at @swandolphin in epcot for helping us feel safe while we get through this together."

Earlier this week, Bell tweeted that she and the cast and crew for Like Father were going to try and evacuate. Unfortunately, they weren't able to do so. The Frozen star then updated her fans with a pic of herself with her two co-stars, Paul W. Downs and Blaire Brooks, having "one last beach visit" before the storm.

Hurricane Irma comes after Hurricane Harvey, which hit Houston, Texas and surrounding states. Since hitting the area, celebrities like Beyonce, Jennifer Garner and Kevin Hart have been donating and giving back to the affected communities.
