SLYDIAL IN THE MEDIA
"slydial lets you connect directly with another person's cell phone voice mail, bypassing the traditional ringing process that often results — sometimes disastrously — with someone picking up on the other end." - Rachel Metz, Associated Press (AP)
"For those of you who have ever made a phone call and immediately began repeating the phrase "Please don't pick up" in your head, there's now a phone application for you." - Kevin Allen, Chicago Sun Times
Featured on CNN, NBC, ABC, FOX News, The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, People Magazine, CNET, and TechCrunch.
What's New in Version 1.4
Calls as "Unknown" number
This app calls as an unknown number and then proceeds to leave a message registered as your phone number. So if the person happens to pick up, you wind up talking to them anyway. I thought the whole point of this was to just leave a message without bothering the person at all. Lame.
Also, you get 3 calls and then it looks like they charge you somehow. I haven't done all 3 and I looked all around the app looking for information on the pricing scheme, and can't find it anywhere, I guess they charge you once you call?
Well, that was pointless
If I could give it zero stars I would. I downloaded it and was very excited because calling off sick is the worst but my work has a policy where you must call, not text. So I call expecting it to go to voicemail. My boss answers. I panic and hit the mute button. What happens next? She calls me back to make sure everything was okay! So not only did it not go straight to voicemail but it also didn't block my number. I deleted the app and will look for another one later...right now I'm too busy getting ready for work.
All the "other"apps are the same as Slydial.
Don't let them steal your money. I had Slydial which used to work but no longer works for me. I looked at the other apps on the Apple Store and found that the other two similar apps available if you purchase them or download them are the same as Slydial. Same voice, they all say welcome to Slydial, and yet they take your money as if you were buying a new app. They don't disclose that all three of the straight to voicemail apps are the same as Slydial.
