SimulScribe on Wednesday announced the beta release of
SimulSays, a free, downloadable “visual voicemail” application for BlackBerry 8800 series, BlackBerry Pearl, BlackBerry Curve and Windows Mobile-equipped smartphones.
The software provides a similar capability to Apple’s forthcoming iPhone — users can scroll, click and listen to voicemail messages on their phone’s display; users can select any voice message to play back, rather than having to navigate by message
SimulScribe also offers a companion voicemail-to-text service that enables users to read their voicemail messages rather than listen to them. And SimulSays also integrates with the phone’s contact book, so users can reply to messages by phone, text message or e-mail.
