YouMail crosses two million U.S. user milestone


YouMail, a provider of cloud-based communications apps
and services for smartphones, has reached the key milestone of 2 million
registered users in the United States.


The 2 million mark comes only weeks after YouMail announced that the company has now answered more than 1 billion phone calls for
users, including 500 million since September 2010.


The company, whose service is currently only available in
the United States, has steadily grown its user base since launching its initial
Visual Voicemail Plus smartphone application in 2009.


What really makes this milestone special is how much of
our growth is organic and how active our users are,” said Alex Quilici, CEO of


The increasing user base is primarily from satisfied
YouMail users bringing on their friends, as well as users exposing others to
YouMail by sharing voicemails or using personalized greetings. And the fact
that our 2 million users have generated over 1 billion calls shows how much
call activity is going through our service,” Quilici added.


Along with the user and service milestones, YouMail
recently disclosed it has achieved another key goal in its growth trajectory by
receiving new funding that brings its overall total of equity and debt
financing since 2007 to $12.5 million.


Participating in the latest funding were VantagePoint
Capital Partners, Siemer Ventures and the Tech Coast Angels. YouMail will use
the latest financing to roll out a network of mobile applications and services,
expand the platform and accelerate growth of Visual Voicemail Plus, its
flagship service.


The YouMail platform supports applications for
smartphones such as iPhone, BlackBerry and Google Android devices, plus
third-party applications developed for other mobile operating systems, such as
Windows Phone 7, Windows Phone 6.5 and WebOS, as well as for the iPhone and
Android platforms.
