New Zealand based Springdoo is launching its talking e-mail service, that allows users to compose and send e-mails from any telephone, either landline or cellular.
"It's about time there was an e-mail revolution," says Springdoo CEO Jason Kerr. "E-mail hasn't changed in over 10 years. Typing e-mails has become a chore and a bore -- listening to someone's message exactly the way it was intended is much more effective than reading text. We have taken a very static medium and given it more power to quickly and emotionally connect the sender and the receiver," he says.
Springdoo allows users to record messages on any phone, and send it directly to an e-mail address or group of addresses. Recipients open the e-mail and click on a link to listen to the message, without the need for any additional software.
The company believes that Springdoo's ability to send e-mail from anywhere without the need for typing will make it an indispensable personal and business communication tool.
The service is currently available with a free trial and users who decide to keep using the service are then charged at AU$39 cents a minute to record and send Springdoos. The service is currently available in New Zealand and Australia and will soon be launched in the USA and UK.
