Scribe™ On Your Android

May 22, 2012 Leave a comment

Closely following the release of Scribe™ for iPhone users, we can now confirm that Scribe™ is officially available for those of you on Android!

Scribe™ is immediately available for both free and paid users on Android – soon to be available to free users with iPhone devices too.

As before, the Scribe™ product that is currently available for purchase is Get The Gist™ – which transcribes the first 10 seconds of your voicemails, so you can read and ‘get the gist’ of the message before you listen, saving you time and promoting convenience. Get The Gist™ is priced at £1.49 for paid users (those of you with a subscription), and £1.99 for free users. Remember, if you exceed your message allowance (up to 50 messages) or exceed the month time-span of the product, you will need to purchase Get The Gist™ again to continue having your messages transcribed.

Enjoy, guys!

Get The Gist™

May 10, 2012 9 comments

HulloMail promotes convenience. What with the sending, receiving and sharing of your voicemails being an instant process, would it be possible to make our app even better? After hearing the feedback from our loyal consumers, we came up with a solution to make the receiving and checking of voicemails an even simpler process. This is an exciting moment for us all, as we can now proudly introduce our new and long-anticipated transcription feature, Scribe™ !

ImageScribe™ is HulloMail’s new transcription service, which has a fun and interesting product under its name –  Get The Gist™, which transcribes the first 10 seconds of your voicemails, using only machines (yes no humans), to give you the gist of what the message is about, before you’ve even listened to it. Ten seconds may not sound like a lot, however it only takes a few words to express a message, so Get The Gist™ has you perfectly covered. Picture how useful this will be where it’s inconvenient to pick up the phone, have a glance at your received message and … get the gist of it! Simple.

Available only to subscribers, Scribe – Get The Gist™ can be purchased via the in-app store for £1.49 for up to 50 messages, over 30 days. That’s $1.99 in the US and €1.59 in Ireland. As with other transcription services, Scribe™ aims for the most accurate transcriptions possible, however external factors have an influence and may affect the transcription of messages – a bad phone line for example.

Enjoy the new feature! It’s going to completely change how you experience your voicemail service, in a totally awesome way.

Anti phone-hacking voicemail upgrade

October 20, 2011 Leave a comment

After reading the high-profile reports regarding the various phone-hacking cases, we wanted to provide a service which would give you total confidence in the security of your voicemail account.

The reason phone-hacking is possible is that voicemail services make it really easy for you to call and retrieve messages with no security measures. Unfortunately it is straightforward for unscrupulous individuals to “spoof” caller phone numbers and therefore gain access to voicemail

Today we’ve launched a new version of our SmartVoicemail™ service designed to provide protection against unauthorised and undetected access to private voice messages.

For our iPhone and Android paid users, BB coming soon; we’ve launched new app versions including a new feature set called Access Control

Access Control allows you to block all ‘call-in access’ to your account so messages are only retrieved from within the HulloMail app and email. Additionally, you may opt to receive a notification each time your messages are accessed, providing a complete audit trail and peace of mind. You also have the option to switch-off online access to messages via your ‘My HulloMail’ portal.

As we offer call access as a back up mechanism, we will be enforcing PIN entry as a default setting for those of you wishing to dial-in to access voice messages

This is what it looks like on the iPhone 2.1.0 and Android 3.5.0:

If you do however regularly call in we appreciate that PIN entry can be annoying. As a HulloMail Paid user you can disable PIN using Access Control but we recommend you then enable access detection by setting Access Notification to ON.

Further FAQ’s can be found here.

I believe our Access Control feature set is simply unequalled by the mobile network operators and other third party voicemail providers.

Please take the time to set your call access PIN in the coming days…

Thanks
