I have been using MotionApps mVisualVoicemail for about a month now on my Treo 755p. Now, let me set the stage for you. mVisualVoicemail allows you to listen to your voicemail messages in the same manner that the iPhone shows you your messages, giving you the ability to choose which message you want to hear.
A few months ago I switched the handling of my voicemail to "CALLWAVE", the visual voicemail service that provides transcribed and downloadable versions of your messages. These messages can come to your computer and be managed from there, and or to your email program on your phone. This is where mVisualVoicemail comes in.
mVisualVoicemail allows you to download those audio files that are your messages in your Treo's inbox, and play them through the application.
I had some problems at the very beginning with MVVM not being able to get the messages and play them from my server. But this was while the app was still in Beta and not yet released for the Palm OS. MotionApps has since released the full version that works a lot better in this area on my phone, but luckily mVisualVoicemail has another feature that worked great in beta and in its present form.
While still using the Beta version, I could after receiving a voicemail via Chatteremail, download the attached "Callwave" wav. file to my SDCard. Once on my card I then opened mVisualVoicemail and select "Open File" from the menu. The Program opens my card and I select the file which then opens in MVVM. I can then either listen to it or simply read the transcribed message.
The audio quality is excellent, although I'm sure a lot of that will depend on the quality of the sent file. The whole downloading process is pretty quick. It doesn't seem to take very long to get the message from the server or the SDCard at all.
One of the things that I really like about this program is it gives you quick and easy access to your messages. You can come back and listen to any message without the annoying ordeal of calling your service and using push key commands. All your messages are right there in your MVVM inbox until you delete them. One thing to remember. If you download to your card, remember to delete them as you are done with them, they can eat up space pretty quickly.
MotionApps mVisualVoiceMail provides voicemail user experience the way it should have always been.
Not only will mVisualVoiceMail add the visual component to the way you use voicemail, but it also includes an industry leading audio player specialized for playing voicemails in a number of industry standard formats. It is a unique player designed with voicemail in mind, capable of decoding audio data generated by commonly used PBX such as Avaya, Cisco or Nortel in G729.1, PCM, CCITT uLAW, CCITT ALAW, IMA ADPCM, GSM 6.10, MS ADPCM and OKI ADPCM formats.
With mVisualVoiceMail next time you get a voicemail you will be able to take a look at it - and then to listen to it.---
This is a pretty good program that has its benefits particularly if you're using a service like CallWave or Simulscribe.
