mVisualVoiceMail v1.0.1

mVisualVoiceMail, by MotionApps, will boost the way you are working with your voicemails if you receive them as audio file attachments on your e-mail.Instead of fumbling through the inbox looking for the voicemails one by one, guessing who they may be from and trying to play them without guaranteed success, use mVisualVoiceMail not only to see them all in one convenient place, but to instantly know who they are from and choose which one you wish to hear first. Then push a button to listen to message, to call back sender, to send an e-mail, or to do anything else you feel you should be able to do with your voicemail in the first place.

How does it work?
If you configure mVisualVoiceMail to use POP3 e-mail account, it will filter and download all the voicemail messages you receive on your smartphone as e-mail attachments from your VoIP provider or company PBX and display them in a single list enabling you to select the exact message you want to listen to. Your voicemails will be displayed in an easy to manage list, with all the relevant details about the message: caller name, phone number, date and time the message arrived.

Listening to voice mails using default e-mail clients
If you wish to use any other e-mail application that supports attachments, such as VersaMail, you can use the benefits of mVisualVoiceMail advanced audio player features to listen to your voice messages.
In this case, you will be able to play voice mail messages from any e-mail application that supports attachments.

mVisualVoiceMail includes an industry leading audio player specialized for playing voicemails in a number of industry standard formats. It is a unique player designed with voicemail in mind, capable of decoding audio data generated by commonly used PBXes such as those from Avaya, Cisco or Nortel in G.729, GSM 6.10, G.711 and many other formats that cannot be natively reproduced with Windows Media Player or other audio apps.

  • Playing voice mail messages from any application that supports attachments

    Photos HQ v1.08

    There are moments in life that we'd like to capture forever. In those moments, we may snap a photo on our mobile phone to share with friends. Unfortunately, what we often get is a small blurry picture overly compressed by a destructive JPEG algorithm.

    Wouldn't it be nice to be able to record pictures without loss of details?

    Well, you can do just that with Photos HQ by treoware - which, by the way, has just been updated to version 1.08!

    Photos HQ enhances the capture capabilities of devices with an VGA (640x480) camera and increases the resolution to 960x720 pixels by combining two consecutive images.

    In order to limit the loss of information, Photos HQ can record pictures as a lossless BMP file. With the optional pnoJpegLib, it can generate compressed pictures of a higher quality level than the standard JPEG algorithm.

    Additionally, Photos HQ brings new features such as an improved digital zoom, a 10 seconds self-timer, and a picture-in-picture thumbnail showing the preceding photograph.


    • increased resolution to 960x720 pixels on devices with an 640x480 camera
    • limited loss of information: lossless BMP file, optional pnoJpegLib
    • improved digital zoom
    • exposure compensation
    • 10 seconds self-timer
    • surveillance camera
    • picture-in-picture thumbnail

    Updates in Photos HQ 1.0.8

    • Improvement: SXGA (e.g., Centro) capture optimization
    • Corrected issue: PalmPhotoLib improper file naming
    • Corrected issue: initial side button assignment

    Updated in v1.0.6

    • Minor change: Centro GSM definition added

    Fellow writer, Jay Gross, just recently reviewed Photos HQ version 1.04. You can read his review here.

    • Unique 1-click interface. While a WIZARD-like program is helpfull for the first 2 conversions, clicking through each option every time you convert a DVD gets anoying after a few conversions. DVD Catalyst 3 is uniquely designed to convert movies with as little clicks as possible. All your settings can be remembered, and after one conversion, you never have to play with the settings again. You can even set it up to start a conversion automatically whenever a new DVD or video file is found.

    • Automatic (0 Click) conversion. You can have DVD Catalyst automatically start a conversion when a DVD is inserted; a new video file is added to your folders. All of the options in DVD Catalyst 3 can be set for automatic mode, including cropping and language/subtitle selections.
