First Look: BBM Voicemail for BlackBerry | N4BB - News for BlackBerry - forums, leaks, rumors, videos, faqs, reviews
Have you ever wanted to exchange voice messages with your BBM contacts rather than have to type them? Thereís a new app called VVM Messenger that allows you to record, send and receive voice messages with any of your BBM contacts.VVM Messenger lets you send short voice messages up to 25 secondswithout incurring pricey roaming or long distance voice calling charges.
The developer says the app is currently in public beta and users must meet the following Requirements:
OS 6 or later (OS 5 support coming soon. Stay tuned!)
BBM 6.0.1 or later (VVM Messenger will prompt you to download it if you donít have it installed the first time you run VVM Messenger)
Users will also have to make sure their recipients of a BBM Voicemail also has VVM Messenger in order to receive the message. Although, if you send someone a VVM and they donít have VVM Messenger installed they will automatically receive an App World invite to download VVM Messenger.

Hi, the developer behind VVM Messenger here.
VVM Messenger is actually now officially out of beta and the 1.0 release has been out for a few days (App World update process is a little slow to change the app description). I added support for OS 5.0 in the 1.0 as well as added support for switching between handset and speakerphone with just a tap on the screen/click of a button.
Let me know if you have any questions or feedback, would be glad to answer and take note of what you guys think.

Perhaps the developer can explain the difference?Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, for thou art crunchy, and good with ketchup
Isn't it amusing how people who claim to not enjoy CB at all simply can't stay away???? It's because it's CRACKBERRY, the BEST BB site....

The idea with VVM Messenger is to make voicemail over BBM quick, easy and fun. That's all. I have added a few screenshots so you can see what I mean.
You can manage voice messages like voicemail, with a centralized Inbox where all voicemail comes, messages listed in chronological order, read/unread messages, new VVM notifications etc.
We also wanted to make it very easy and convenient to record, send and play VVMs so that people can do that effortlessly when on the go, in a hurry, in a car etc. You can record and send with just a couple of clicks/taps on the screen, we added things like one-click toggle between speakerphone/handset and the app also provides notifications so that you can know when you have a new VVM waiting for you.
Btw, the interface on non-touch/OS 5 models also uses buttons so it's still a two-click process and people don't have to fish through the context menu.
I hope this puts things in perspective, if you guys have any questions - shoot!
