Apple iPhone users who detested the idea of long phone calls that dragged on endlessly and rarely used FaceTime can now turn to Quickie, a nifty little iOS app that allows users to make video calls that end after a few seconds automatically.

According to TechCrunch, the app is like a hybrid between Yo and Snapchat . On opening the app, you see a list of all your friends. In order to make a call, you can tap on a friend's name and select the length of the call. Your friend will then receive a notification and decide whether to act on it. In case they are busy, the notification will be like a ping, like receiving a Yo.

However, if you accept the Quickie, you will get a full-screen video call and see a countdown timer at the bottom. Quickie calls can last 60 seconds, at most. Therefore, you just spend a few seconds talking to your friend, laughing. And then the call ends, your friend is gone.
