I tried out GrandCentral in February and liked the ability to tie in multiple numbers, including Gizmo VoIP, into a central number and service. GrandCentral is still in beta and continues to improve their service and feature offerings. Jonathan Greene had a chance to sit down with Craig Walker, the CEO of Grand Central last week, and posted some thoughts on the meeting. I was pleased to hear the news that GrandCentral is mobilizing and then found a post on the GrandCentral blog that went into even more details on GrandCentral Mobile.
The mobile version of their service allows you to access your GrandCentral account from a mobile device that has a web browser. You simply go to http://www.grandcentral.com/mobile from your mobile browser and then login to your account. From within the mobile interface you can play and manage your voicemails, view your contacts, change you settings, set temporary settings, and place calls using your GrandCentral number. While this may not be quite the "visual voicemail" functionality that will be coming in the Apple iPhone, it is much more useful than using your traditional wireless carrier voicemail system. I plan to try it out and maybe integrate GrandCentral into my life more now that I can access many of the features while on the go.
