AutoAAN Launches Crowd Funding Campaign for Affordable Voicemail App

Buy It Once, and Never Pay for Voicemail Again.

Toronto, Canada, June 13th, 2014 — Today, Toronto startup Think Idea Do announced the launch of its Indiegogo crowd funding campaign for Automatic Answer And Notify (“AutoAAN”), the affordable and smarter voicemail app that aims to save subscribers from overpriced, monthly voicemail charges.

Many people don’t know it, but voicemail can cost almost $100 per year for many plans. For a limited one-time price of $5, you can get the AutoAAN app for iOS or Android and never pay for voicemail again. It works for all carriers, anywhere in the world.

In May, AutoAAN commissioned a study to gauge the impact this could have. Over 400 people were surveyed, and the results showed that 42 percent of voicemail users didn’t know how much they were paying. On top of that, over 45 percent would switch to AutoAAN if they didn’t have to pay for voicemail again. If 10,000,000 voicemail users made the switch, they could save over $600 million a year (by replacing a $5 monthly plan.)

On top of the savings, AutoAAN has additional features that your standard voicemail is missing. There are no limits on how many messages you can store or how long they can be, and they never expire. When the phone rings, you can choose from one of 12 “contextual greetings” to play for the caller. Instead of your standard “I’m not here, leave a message,” you can let them know you’re in a meeting, at a restaurant, or watching cat videos.

Founder Daniel Feuer is a serial entrepreneur and a mentor to young entrepreneurs and his hope is that AutoAAN will end the expensive voicemail monopoly. “Our app is the first that puts the control of voicemail where it should be, with the phone owner. No longer will anyone be dependent on their carrier for an under-powered and over-priced answering machine,” said Feuer. “Aside from the practical cost savings, callers can now have context as to why they received voicemail and when the call will be returned. AutoAAN will do for voicemail what VOIP did for long-distance by providing competition and savings.”

AutoAAN’s Indiegogo campaign lasts until July 10 and is flexible, meaning that any funds contributed will go toward the project. The app is expected to be released in September 2014.

Yamgo set to unleash superfast TV as 4G services roll out across the UK

Leading mobile TV provider Yamgo has unveiled an updated technology platform ready to deliver high quality TV streams to mobile phones on Britain’s new superfast 4G networks.

The Yamgo mobile TV service will capitalise on the superior speed of 4G to deliver sharper looking video and improved audio, bringing UK consumers in line with the enhanced mobile TV experience that’s become so popular in the USA, South Korea and Scandinavia.

Tomorrow (Tuesday) EE becomes the first UK Operator to launch 4G LTE services, with consumers in 16 cities due to be connected by Christmas this year.

Yamgo makes it easy to watch over 100 channels of TV on a mobile or tablet using phone based applications or mobile web pages to launch the service.

4G will make data services like mobile TV and music mainstream due to the ultra-fast connectivity, making it quicker than most home broadband connections.

Yamgo’s proprietary technology platform enables it to dynamically adapt video streams, maximising compatibility across mobile network operators and devices. Although Yamgo services work well around the world on slower 2.5G services, it’s the lightning speed of 4G that will make watching TV on mobiles mainstream.

Yamgo CEO Ian Mullins stated, “The launch of 4G is the tipping point for services like Yamgo. When all the networks have 4G rolled out across the country, it will quickly become second nature for people to watch TV on their mobile.

“The ability to use digital entertainment services like Yamgo has been available for years, but I think we all agree that with the new smartphones, 4G and the proliferation of Wi-Fi, we’re now going to see the market explode.

“We’ve seen the effect 4G has had on the use of data services in the US and I expect it to be exactly the same here. We’re pleased for all the viewers of Yamgo TV who will get a faster, better service over 4G LTE and with the benefit of our new platform.”

The news from Yamgo comes on the back of a major announcement last week that four of the UK’s largest mobile service providers have joined forces to accelerate the timetable of the 4G rollout across the country. In conjunction with communication regulator Ofcom and the UK government, Vodafone, Everything Everywhere (EE), Three and O2 have come together to form ‘Digital Mobile Spectrum Ltd (DMS).

DMS will be focused on co-ordinating operations for the roll-out of 4G on the 800MHz spectrum while ensuring that the UK’s digital television and Freeview services are not affected.

DMS will be funded by successful bidders in the upcoming 4G spectrum auction. The auction will offer a welcome boost to the UK economy, with expectations suggesting income of £2-4bn will be generated.

EE is due to launch Britain’s first 4G service tomorrow (October 30th) and expects to have reached one third of the UK’s population by the end of 2012.

The 4G services will initially be in four cities – London, Bristol, Cardiff and Birmingham – with 12 others to follow: Belfast, Derby, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Hull, Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester, Nottingham, Newcastle, Sheffield and Southampton.

All the UK mobile phone operators are expected to launch 4G services early next year.

Help Spot and Avoid a Fake Mobile Phone for WCRD 2012

On World Consumer Rights Day (WCRD) 2012, consumers worldwide are reminded that they have the power to make the right choice and avoid fake or knock off mobile phones.

“People can inadvertently purchase a fake or sub-standard phone, through no fault of their own, by trying to find a cheaper price for a phone – especially on the internet,” said Michael Milligan, Secretary General of the Mobile Manufacturers Forum (MMF).

“Everyone wants to be able to buy a product at a good price. But unscrupulous suppliers are exploiting that desire for a bargain to sell products that are not what they claim, or that are just poor quality and perhaps even dangerous. To help consumers identify and avoid these fake or knock-off phones, genuine manufacturers have created the www.spotafakephone.comwebsite.”

Most fake phones are counterfeit copies of genuine handsets, which steal intellectual property such as designs, technologies and trademarks to deliberately deceive consumers. Fake phones are also produced without government approval, safety testing or certification and are sold illegally on the world’s black markets.

“The global black market for fake handsets has grown rapidly over the past few years and is estimated to be in excess of 200 million devices every year,” Mr Milligan said.

“With counterfeiters imitating all facets of a phones appearance, including labeling, design and packaging, it can be hard to spot whether a phone is fake or genuine, so the mobile industry developed this website to help consumers identify fakes and make the right choice.”

“Often it is the sub-standard components, low quality manufacturing and poor performance that impact on consumers after they have already purchased a fake, especially in the area of consumer safety, and usually the consumer has no recourse with the supplier.”

“Another important benefit of buying a genuine phone is that original manufacturers stand behind the quality of their own products and provide important product warranties to consumers should problems arise after purchase.” Mr Milligan said

Consumers can do their part in helping to identify, report and avoid fake or knock off phones by going to: www.spotafakephone.com.
