    Application:Talk-Now Voicemail???

    Advertisement



    I found the info on this site:
    http://www.blackberryblog.com/
    Have anyone seen this app or try this app?
    Talk-Now: No more 'I not available. Please leave me a voice mail.'

    Talk-Now: No more 'I not available. Please leave me a voice mail.'
    How lame is voice mail? Can we all agree to get rid of it and just go with sms or at least make some improvements to it (like the iPhone voice mail UI) so that I don't have to dial 1... wait... you have 3 new messages... wait.. to listen to your voice messages, press 1... 1... wait.. argh..
    To that end, Sue (representing Iotum) sent me an email a couple weeks back about a product called Talk-Now, which is in technology preview stage (fancy term for beta?) that basically takes the presence information that you're used to in IM and moves it to your phone so you never have to make a call without knowing whether or not someone is available on the other end, thereby totally eliminating voice mail! Wheee!!!

    its works as advertised, preety neat tool, i like it alot, only qualm is the CONSTANT transmission of data between your phone and their servers, which translates to your battery life going right out the window.

    Re: Voicemail???

    very good point, I downloaded it a while ago and promptly un-installed for that reason. I think it would only be truly advantageous if most of my contacts used it as well....

    Trinybwoy and jerrycrabb,

    We changed the way it queries our server to improve the battery life. It queries only once for all the contacts when you open the application. If you close it, it will not transmit data to our servers. No constant exchange at all.

    The only time you have recurring transmission is when you add someone to the “notify-me” which notifies you when the contact becomes available or send him an email request with your availability included. And even then it will query only a few times per hour.

    We are planning on improving this to. Any idea is welcome. If you have been following us we release new features and improvements fairly regularly. Between 2 to 4 weeks between each upgrade.

    Thanks for your interest butterfly2, the link is iotum.com/blackberry

    Looking forward to your feedback and comments, this is your product as much as it is ours.

    Hi - if you already have an account try selecting the menu item "check for updates" from within the Talk-Now application on your BlackBerry, or by navigating to
    www dot iotum dot /downloads/blackberry/talk-now.jad using the BlackBerry browser.

    Re: Voicemail???

    I downloaded this and used it for a few days. It's a bit slow but otherwise a very great app. I was actually going to buy it till I seen it was a monthly subscription of $6.00 each month, which is a show stopper for me. Sell me an app don't make me pay any more monthly fee's than I already pay lol.
