Visual Voicemail - is it possible to build a "local" app?
I'm new to all of this and have been reading the threads about unlocking and am about to get an iPhone. I was thinking about the visual voicemail which would be pretty cool but it is a feature of AT&T.
I'm not a coder so this is a question as to whether this would work and if there are any coders or the dev team think this is viable at all.
What if there were an app sitting in the background on the iPhone that answered your phone for you - say one ring before voicemail kicks in.
This app could then play an MP3 (or any sound file)
"Hi, this is me...Please leave me a message..."
The app then records the message as a sound file (mp3,m4a etc) until the conversation ends (or a time limit is reached). This sound file is now on the iPhone's memory.
The app once opened fully would list all of the recorded messages with details such as who called, what day/time etc. These could be played at any time (even in iTunes if you wanted) and obviously use fast forward, rewind, pause etc.
Along with this it could update the red button over the phone icon - it literally is just a count of the number of files in the voice message system. Once you delete them out of the system (or move them somewhere) the red button would drop the number.
Anyway, as I say - I'm not a coder at all and not sure if this is possible, but having seen some of the work the guys on the forum can do and have done I thought I'd ask.
So, is a local visual voicemail possible at all?
