YouMail Visual Voicemail is the perfect upgrade for anyone who uses voicemail on their iPhone. Offered for free through the iTunes Store, this app is a unique take on voicemail.
The features of this app, from YouMail, Inc., are described well within its name. Specifically, YouMail Visual Voicemail is designed to make managing your voicemails easier than ever before–you really are the key consumer of this app.
Creating an account simply requires that you already have a regular phone number to link your YouMail account to, and the setup process for YouMail accounts is very easy.
For anyone who is constantly running out of voicemail space within his/her regular messaging system, YouMail might be a good solution, as it allows you to keep significantly more messages in your system than the average mobile carrier allows.
Other useful features of this app include personalized “answering” services, ease in organizing past messages, and voicemail ID. Other services like voicemail to text transcription are only available through in-app purchases.
As a whole, I was very pleased with the features of this app. The extra voicemail messaging space alone makes it a great addition to your iOS app collection!
Appearance and Layout:
YouMail is easy to use, even for a first time user. Much of this ease in use can be attributed to the app’s streamlined set-up process, as well as the easy-to- navigate layout of YouMail.
The appearance of YouMail is bright and friendly, and how “cluttered” your account feels will be largely determined by how many voicemails you have within your messaging system.
The organizational scheme of YouMail is also similar to that of a regular voicemail system, which makes getting used to the services of this app a very smooth transition.
The basic version of YouMail is a completely free service. This “essentials” service seems to include most basic voicemail things–the opportunity to check voicemail on various devices, a caller ID system, a call-blocking system, etc.
However, there is a fee to upgrade to the Premium Plan, which includes all of the basic services plus unique items like the opportunity to get your voicemails transcribed into texts.
For users who hate spending the time listening to voicemails and would much rather prefer to just read their messages, this ad-on service will probably be more ideal, and even though it is an extra fee, we highly recommend it.
YouMail Visual Voicemail requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
