YouMail's Android Visual Voicemail Plus App Updated

YouMail has announced the latest update to its Android Visual Voicemail Plus application. This latest version of the YouMail app for Android follows the recent upgrades to BlackBerry and iPhone.

The significant features of the update include In-App Community Greetings and Number Search. Thanks to 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 from within the app itself.

Moreover, 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. Company officials said that YouMail users have to 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 and Amazon’s Appstore for Android.

“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,” said Alex Quilici, CEO at YouMail.

YouMail is a provider of communication applications and services for smartphones. The company’s completely free flagship Visual Voicemail Plus application offers a multi-platform, unified and social-voicemail experience for its users on BlackBerry, Android, iPhone, Web OS, Windows Phone 7 and Windows 6.5 platforms.

Earlier in May, YouMail released its update to the iOS Visual Voicemail Plus application for iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
