On the heels of announcing that 75 million people have interacted with its service (and that it has 17.5 million unique users interacting with it each month), smartphone app and visual voicemail provider YouMail has also just announced the release of its new app for Android. Not only is this YouMail’s sleekest app for the Android platform, it might be the sleekest version of the app yet (on Android no less!).

YouMail (www.youmail.com), a leading provider of cloud-based communication apps and services for smartphones, has just announced significant changes to its Android platform — with recent updates to its Visual Voicemail Plus and new caller ID app, WhoAreYou — that directly compete with Google Voice’s new “Plus” integration for call management and contact organization while offering the strongest tools on the market to block unwanted calls by far. With the updates to these YouMail apps, YouMail does all the work in identifying unknown calls and helping the user to block unwanted ones, a user doesn’t have to port their number, and the best part: they can continue not using Google Plus.

YouMail has been yanked from the Android Market! According to a blog post written by CEO Alex Quilici, what it basically came down to was that T-mobile issued a complaint citing that the app was causing a network disruption. YouMail believes the removal is unfair for many reasons, adding the fact that they have not once been contacted by T-Mobile to say there was a problem to begin with. You can read more about this issue at YouMail’s blog site YouMail’s Blog.

YouMail has just announced that it is extending its popular Visual Voicemail Plus service with a new and comprehensive Visual Caller ID component making it closer to a true call management system for the smartphone. Visual Caller ID visually identifies both missed callers and callers who have left messages with a name, a representative image and city/state information, even when the calling number is not found in the user’s address book. This significant change to the YouMail interface will make such services as NumberGuru and TrueCaller redundant, while offering the total voicemail management, transcription and sharing options its two million-plus users have come to expect and love.

Irvine’s YouMail (www.youmail.com), a leading provider of cloud-based communication apps and services for smartphones, just officially announced that it now has 2 million users in the United States. This represents both incredible growth and scale of growth, with YouMail doubling its user base in a little more than a year. Essentially, it has taken less than half the time to grow the registered user base from 1M to 2M than it did to go from its 2007 launch to 1M users in 2010. On the heels of announcing one billion total calls received (more than twice the number of 500M total in September ’10) and $12.5 million in total funding, this represents a significant step for YouMail as it continues to enhance its position as a digital voice messaging service, with users, calls and funding mushrooming exponentially by the day.
