Just Press Skip
If you’re a normal human being, you loathe Hong Kong’s relentless, interminable automated phone hotlines. Press 1 for Cantonese, 2 for Putonghua, 3 for English, 1 to talk about billing, 2 to access account details, 3 to get bounced from menu to menu until you give up… Enter an app that cuts all that tedious touch-toning out of your life. Need to call your bank? Instead of Googling the number and sifting through 10 minutes of a voice reading out irrelevant options, you just open up the app, choose what you want, hit dial—and you’re connected straight to a human being. Well, almost. The hold music as you wait for someone to pick up on the other end? That’s not going anywhere.
