I’ve downloaded VoxxBoxx and now I really regret it, as I’ve become addicted to it! Why? Because of its simple idea which lets you listen to a random, anonymous 8-seconds audio message from anywhere in the world. Of course, you can easily create and send out your own messages anonymously. And what’s really cool that after downloading the app completely for free, there are no annoying ads at all on the inside.

The game is touted as a unique puzzle game and I’m sure you will agree with me once you download it on your device. It comes with 50 puzzles that you can play for free, and you will have to pay for more.
