YouMail let me know that they have just released a new update to their Visual Voicemail Plus app. They discovered an issue where under certain circumstances, using the “greetings” feature can “hang” the app, so that it can no longer retrieve voicemails.
NOTE: They have update the app to a new version in the App World that fixes this issue and are recommending that you uninstall the previous version before reinstalling this version!
In case you were wondering what this “Greetings” feature does that hangs the app. This feature lets you change your default greeting with a few clicks so that you can change your voicemail message to say you are in a meeting or at the bar. You can check some of the professionally recorded greetings out at this link.
YouMail is graciously apologizing for the screw up and plans on testing updates thoroughly before unleashing them on the public in the future. Now if only they would wake up and smell the coffee and start offering an OTA link outside of the App World…
