YouMail Updates Android App With Easier Access to Greetings and Number SearchMost Feature-Rich Call Management Solution for Android Joins iOS and BlackBerry in Giving Users In-App Community Greetings, Caller Search (June 27, 2011)
IRVINE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 06/27/11 -- YouMail, Inc. (www.youmail.com) -- a leading provider of cloud-based communications apps and services for smartphones -- today announced the latest update to its Android Visual Voicemail Plus application. The latest version of the YouMail app for Android joins recent upgrades to both BlackBerry and iPhone in significantly extending YouMail's Android user experience to make it both more fun and more useful.
Among the most significant features of the update (1.9.4) include:
- In-App Community Greetings. Users can now easily browse, search, and add to YouMail's growing set of tens of thousands of user-provided greetings all from within the comfort of the app itself. Now users need only a few taps to find the perfect community greeting that best fits their mood.
- Number Search. YouMail has baked mobile search into the app itself, so that with one click, users can find out whether a caller should be blocked forever. The YouMail user need only select the new magnifying glass on the voicemail playing page to search for more info on the caller's phone number, or select the city/state of the caller to see a map of that location.
The update is now available in both the Android Market (https://market.android.com/details?id=com.youmail.android.vvm) and Amazon's Appstore for Android (http://www.amazon.com/YouMail-Inc-Visual-Voicemail-Plus/dp/B004T6D3EQ). YouMail consistently ranks among the top communications apps in both Android stores, which are among the fastest-growing drivers for YouMail's overall downloads. In addition, Android users who aren't YouMail users can point their Android phone to http://greetings.youmail.com to explore the YouMail greeting community.
"At its foundation, YouMail has always had a very rich web-based experience for computer users," said CEO Alex Quilici. "With over two million downloads of our handset apps, and a growing community of Android users, we've now carried much of that experience over to each of the mobile apps across what are now the 'Big Three' smartphone platforms -- iPhone, BlackBerry, and now Android."
YouMail is available to post-paid mobile users in the US on all major carriers including AT&T Wireless, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and T-Mobile. YouMail can also be used to unify a user's mobile voicemail with their voice messages from VOIP service providers such as Google Voice, MagicJack, OOMA, and Vonage.
YouMail, Inc., is a leading provider of communication applications and services for smartphones. YouMail's completely free flagship Visual Voicemail Plus application offers a true multi-platform, unified and social-voicemail experience for its users on BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, Web OS, Windows Phone 7 and Windows 6.5 platforms.
