YouMail Voicemail Plus (VVP) is a free, visual voicemail app for BlackBerry has had some pretty great success on App World.

VVP launched in BlackBerry App World on Saturday, April 4 and in less than two weeks, the app is amongst the top 15 downloaded apps for the BlackBerry Storm, Bold, Pearl and Curve devices with O/S 4.3 or higher. Here’s the break down for YouMail’s rankings:

  • Visual Voicemail plus ranked #10 app download on BlackBerry Storm
  • Visual Voicemail plus ranked #12 app download on Blackberry Bold (ranked #1 in Personal Organization)
  • Visual Voicemail plus ranked #13 app download on BlackBerry Pearl
  • Visual Voicemail plus ranked #14 app download on BlackBerry Curve

Additionally, YouMail has updated the “status greetings” on Visual Voicemail Plus allowing users to extend their love for status updates on Twitter and apply it to their voicemail. Users can set up greetings by going to the YouMail Web site and selecting from the greetings available and/or recording their own. With a click of a button, users can tell their callers they are at work, in a meeting, on vacation, working out, etc.

What’s wrong with YouMail?

YouMail Visual Voicemail Plus

Late last week YouMail launched Visual Voicemail Plus, a free visual voicemail application that works on the Blackberry Pearl, Curve, Bold and Storm. I like the sound of free, and a new visual voicemail application is always worth a try, but reports are surfacing that YouMail might not yet be up to snuff. Here’s what our main man Troy had to say over at BlackBerry News:

After 24 hours it is safe to say a lot work still needs to go into the application before it is ready for prime time much like the transcription service they charge for now. Many users including myself have experienced nothing but problems with the application… Maybe with all the ad revenue from placing ads on every aspect of your messages they can now put a little more money into their projects and refine their service. Time will tell.

We’re going to give YouMail our own thorough hands-on, but we recommend that you give it a try and post a comment on your experience. If you’re not willing to take the risk, however, post a comment and let us know of your favorite visual voicemail alternative.
