Apps for May 29, 2012


VoiceGmail will record a message and send it to an email address that needs to be a Gmail address. After opening the app you login with your Gmail account and then select the folder you want the app to check to listen to the voice message.  If you need to use a specific folder, you will need to create it in your Gmail account because this app doesn’t have that capability. When your friend receives the message they can open it within their VoiceGmail app, and they can reply a voice message back to you. You can even link this app with more than one Gmail account so you could send voice messages through each of your accounts.
