SpringDoo Expands Into the USA and UK
New Zealand based Springdoo is expanding its talking e-mail service, that allows users to compose and send e-mails from any telephone, either landline or cellular.

USers in the USA and in the UK can now access the service through a free access number. The service is prepaid, and minutes used in messages are deducted from the user's account. There is a free trial available.

Springdoo users can 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 through a web browser, 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.

A Springdoo allows users to convey exactly what they want to say because it is actually relaying the voice recording. All that is needed to send a message is a phone with an alphanumeric keypad, like the ones commonly available in mobile or landline, office or payphone. The service does not require a computer to send the message.

Users receiving the message need a computer with an Internet connection and a web browser. Springdoo will work with Windows-based PCs running Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 or better, Netscape 6 or better, Opera or Mozilla/Firefox, or with Mac OS-base computers with Safari, Opera or Firefox. Obviously the computer also needs a soundcard and speakers.

The base technology has been provided by Telemessenger Solutions Ltd and the telecommunications hosting is provided by MAP Telecom (a joint venture with Monaco Telecom) for the US and UK.

Additional advantages include the possibility of sending a Springdoo to up to 20 people and having 899 contacts in the address book. Contacts can be imported from Microsoft Outlook or added individually.

The user can tell if a message has been listened to and, if necessary, can recall it so it can no longer be heard. The messages are stored on Springdoo's server and streamed in real time rather than sent as attachments.
