YouMail's Mobile Voicemail Hits Two Million DownloadsVisual Voicemail Application Continues to Quickly Grow Its User Base (January 13, 2011)
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/13/11 -- YouMail Inc. (www.youmail.com) today announced it has passed another key milestone: its popular Visual Voicemail Plus applications for the BlackBerry, Android, and iPhone have now been downloaded over two million times.
YouMail's growth has been driven entirely by its placement in various App Stores and word of mouth. YouMail has consistently been listed as one of the top "Productivity" applications in the BlackBerry AppWorld, and YouMail is especially popular among the small business and enterprise users who have BlackBerry devices.
Some key features driving YouMail's rapid adoption are:
- It's convenient. YouMail lets users quickly play, manage, and share voicemail anywhere: on smart phones, on tablets like the iPad, on computers, even on iPod Touches.
- It treats callers well. YouMail's "Smart Greeting" automatically greets callers by name, and users can also set up individual greetings, and leverage YouMail's community of greetings.
- It's truly visual. For most messages, YouMail provides the caller's picture, and accurately identifies the incoming caller's name and location, letting users really see and know who calls them.
- It unifies inboxes. YouMail users can get their mobile, home, and work voicemail in one place, without the risks and complexity inherent in find-me, follow-me services.
"YouMail is simply a fast, fun way to deal with missed calls, and it's very easy to download and set up," said Alex Quilici, YouMail's CEO. "This is driving major uptake of YouMail, even among people who have other visual voicemail applications from which to choose."
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 smart phones. These applications and services are built on YouMail's proprietary, massively scalable, hosted communication platform and APIs that speed mobile development. YouMail's Visual Voicemail Plus is the company's flagship, a state-of-the-art mobile voicemail service, with applications available for the Android, iPhone, BlackBerry, Palm, and Windows Phone 7 platforms.
