YouMail’s free Visual Voicemail Plus app is now available for the iPhone. This offers caller-ID information and — for an extra fee — will transcribe messages to text.
It gives users full caller-ID information, even for mobile phone numbers that aren’t in a user’s address book.
In addition, voicemail messages can be easily forwarded to anyone, and the greet can be changed on the fly to meeting the user’s current circumstances — in a meeting, on a plane, etc.
This app also lets users save voicemail forever, recover accidentally deleted messages, and organize messages right from the phone
YouMail’s Visual Voicemail Plus app is connected to a desktop service which gives users addition options for managing their voicemail.
Messages can be picked up however it’s most convenient: phone, desktop PC, etc. It can also be set to automatically ditch blocked/unknown callers, telemarketers by caller id, or even callers other users have indicated are spammers
