When texting will take too long and there’s no chance of coordinating a live FaceTime chat, the Tribe app makes it simple to record quick video messages and send them directly to pals, who can then watch and listen at their leisure. Users choose whether these short clips go to an individual or group; once the mobile messages start circulating back and forth, it’s possible to carry on multiple convos at once within the Tribe app, while simulating a kind of real-world flow that suits the stop-and-go cadence of our daily lives. Bonus—it’s free!
