    #1Straight to Voicemail

    Straight to Voicemail
    With Straight to Voicemail you can directly leave a message to the people you have to call, but don't want to speak to. Make the call, wait about 45 seconds and you will hear the voicemail message of the contact you selected.

    iOS, Android

    "I have concerns about such kind of apps in general. The developer advertises it as an invaluable help when you have to make a call but you don't want to talk to the recipient. Instead, when you call, you get straight to their voicemail and leave a message. However, it happens after 45 secs of beeps and boops, quick ads etc... Doesn't sound particularly exciting. If it is an important call to the boss, you'd better make it. If it's not urgent but you don't want to talk, send a text."

    With YouMail you can avoid calls from telemarketers or people you don't want to answer to. Create a list of the unwanted numbers and every time they call you, YouMail will answer them with an "out of service" message.

    "It replaces your voicemail with a virtual receptionist. Not only does it answer calls for you, it also protects you against robo-calls. The concept is great, however, I feel some people do not want to go through a virtual receptionist to get to who they want to talk to. It could be a great concept for a business, but for personal use, I don't find it very practical. "

    "I was working 8am to 7pm shifts for the past few years and I wanted to make sure I don't constantly receive annoying phone calls from telemarketers and spammers while I am working. I was looking for an app that allowed me to easily block unwanted call by being able to identify and stop spam. I found this amazing app that provides the ultimate method for screening phone calls and blocking unwanted calls from telemarketers, bill collectors, and spammers, it is called "Mr. Number - Block calls & spam". Now that I have installed the app, my wife downloaded the app for her phone and is always using this app now. This is a great app for individuals who are busy working and do not want to be disturbed by unwanted or harassing phone calls. Thank you Mr. Number app for giving me a gift that keeps giving."

    Slydial is an app that connects you directly to someone's voicemail. Choose a contact, wait and leave your message. This app is very useful when you're busy or don't want to speak directly to a specific person.

    "If you have friends or relatives who never answer the phone and it ends up sending you to voicemail, this app is for you. This allows me to skip the ringing and waiting for it to send me there and just takes you there straight away. A big time saver for a few people in my contact list!"
