YouMail: An App For When You Don’t Want To Pick Up The Phone

Do you screen your phone calls? If you are looking for a newer and more exciting way to do so, check out the YouMail app.

The app gives you details about the caller like their photo, name and location, even if they are not in your address book. You can also use it to create personalized outgoing voicemail messages that incorporate the caller’s name into the greeting. One of the best features is the “caller ditching” tool that lets users forward unwanted callers directly to voicemail where they are told that the number is disconnected. You can also tweet out voicemails using the app.

The app is supported by various carriers including: AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Sprint). It does require you to forward all unanswered calls to YouMail. It’s available for free for Android and iOS devices.
