SimulScribe changes name to PhoneTag, adds contacts feature


PhoneTag logoThe guys at SimulScribe have changed their name to PhoneTag and added a new feature to their software, which we reviewed a few months ago. The new feature lets you upload your contact list to their website for use in their voicemail transcription app. When the message is transcribed, it will come to you from the email address of the person who recorded it, allowing for a quick email reply. It will also append the user’s name to the subject and spell it correctly in the transcription — so if you know a Tracey, a Tracie, and a Tracy, you’re in luck.

They note that the name change might cause some issues with users’ spam folders, and if you’re one of the few affected you can call them at 1-800-788-0916 or email them.
