***AS SEEN ON ELLEN!!!***
Finally, an app that lets you make that dreaded phone call to your boss, wife, girlfriend, coworker, parent etc. without having to speak to them. Want to call in sick, but don't want to speak to your boss? sTv is perfect for you
**** "This app really is PRICELESS! You will use it more than you ever imagined. I do." ****
Straight to Voicemail does exactly what it says… choose a contact and you will be automatically connected to a free service called Slydial. An automated voice will answer the phone, you will hear some beeps and boops, there may be a pause for a second or four, and then you will listen to a quick ad. After about 45 seconds, you'll hear the voicemail message of the contact you selected and you can leave a message and get away scott free.
**This is the only app in the store that works with the FREE Slydial service***
**A FEW QUICK TIPS**
1. MUST BE A 10 DIGIT U.S. MOBILE PHONE NUMBER - (XXX)XXX-XXXX
2. THE SHOW CALLER ID SETTING ON THE iPHONE MUST BE SET TO 'ON'
Instead of saying to yourself “please don’t pick up, please don’t pick up” you already know they won’t; you leave a message and avoid what could have been a very awkward situation.

What's New in Version 3.2.1
Works as Advertised
If it were not for two things I would have given this app a 5 star rating:
1. You need to unblock your number for it to work. I suspect this is so the company slydial can collect your phone information, rather than some legit reason. This is annoying because I use my cell to call customers, many of whom I don't want knowing my cell #, and sometimes when I unblock my phone I forget to reblock. Then I get unwanted calls back from customers to my cell at all hours.
2. Ads are annoying. I hear that you can pay slydial to eliminate ads, but I've seen people reviewing this stating that paying hasn't totally eliminated ads.
Otherwise the program works as advertised and it can come in handy. Easy to use and does the job every time.
Works like a charm.. Just have a little patience.
I see these 1-3 star reviews and it baffles me. I've been using this app for years and it has never failed me. Yes there are things as a user of any app you must learn or pick up on like it only works with mobile phones & sometimes from what I've experienced there are certain cell carriers that it doesn't work with, but overall it works great! The patience comes in bc of the advertisements it plays while connecting your call. Big deal.. People! :) it s worth it to wait 1 minute to connect directly to someone's vm rather than having to talk on the phone for hours if that's the case. Love this app!
It's good. Use it.
Everybody has occasions when they need to leave a message but don't want to get tied up in a conversation. Like right now, I want to tell an annoying sales person that don't need service on my appliance. I do other business with the company so I don't want them to delete me entirely from their records. That's where straight to voice mail shines. You can leave a message for those people you don't want to cut out of your life but don't really want to get into a conversation with, right now. Use straight to voicemail to avoid a conversation without hurting anyone's feelings.
