YouMail Rolls BlackBerry Voicemail

Irvine-based YouMail, a venture backed startup offering personalized voicemail services, said Wednesday that it is shipping a new, visual voicemail application for the BlackBerry. The firm said the application allows users to scroll through incoming voicemail messages, see information about the call, listen to the call, or forward the voicemail to a blog or social networking web site, among other features. YouMail said the application--which runs on Pearl, Curve, Bold and Storm--is free, and works with its ad-supported and premium services. YouMail is venture backed by Vantage Point Venture Partners and Tech Coast Angels. The firm's voicemail services offer advanced features such as custom greeting messages depending on who is calling; ability to find and buy unique greeting messages; transcription services; and more.
