"almost a great product"
It announces incoming calls and takes a message if your unavailable. It has lots a nice features like custom responses for individual callers, email notification of messages and the ability to check messages over the net. Its faily easy to set and, and if desired, customize the interface.
One MAJOR issue is that it doesnt announce that you have messages waiting. This is a serios flaw. Also the address book is a bit weak.
"A fantastic answering machine app"
I have never felt inspired to write a review until now. Thephonebot is without a doubt the best telephone answering machine software out there for your PC. The remote client is nothing short of amazing so is being able to listen to my voicemail from a web browser. I have been a user since version 2 and it just keeps getting better! the latest version added RSS feed support which i quite like as well. kudos to the authors
once i needed fax support which it doesnt have... once.
