Shake2Talk is a mobile messaging system that allows users
to send sounds and tactile sensations to one another via
their mobile phones. Messages are created through gestures
and then sent to the receiver’s phone where they play upon
arrival. This paper reports a study of the Shake2Talk system
in use by six couples, and begins to uncover the types of
messaging practices that occur, and the values and
meanings that users ascribe to these messages.
