Editors' Review

What if Digsby and Skype merged into one seemingly all-powerful VoIP and messaging communications tool is the question that VoxOx seeks to answer. VoxOx's many features have not yet been seen in one package, and version 2 of the program introduces even more features. Whether their execution suits your needs may be another matter.

VoxOx 2 offers all that came before, and more. It's got multi-protocol chat, social networking support, and Web mail integration. It also offers a telephony service that includes call encryption, mobile-to-mobile calls initiated by either SMS or via a Web site. New in this version are a free personal assistant for recording, forwarding, routing, and screening calls, inbound and outbound fax management, Facebook and MySpace IM support, a reworked contact manager that attempts to merge your contacts from their disparate sources, and stronger back-end support. Users have been promised that new servers can handle the workload asked of them.

You can share files up to 100MB via an internally-generated download link that can then be shared via e-mail or instant message. This is different from the direct support of most IM clients, but that file size bump is hard to ignore. There's mobile access, too, for those who use a mobile browser, iPhone, or WAP. The call quality on the Callback feature, where you initiate a long-distance or international phone call from your computer or SMS, was clear and crisp.

The Personal Assistant is the big new feature in this version, and for users who need to manage multiple phone numbers, it's a killer. You can redirect calls based on which number you want to be reached at first, and by who's calling you. You can record calls as they occur, or listen to messages as they're being recorded. You can also transfer a live call from a landline to a mobile number and not lose the call.

The interface has received an overhaul, and in general it's better. One drawback is that while many options are available from the Settings menu, not all of them are. Some you need to go to different parts of the program, such as altering IM fonts. Using VoxOx's phone features requires points, and users are given 120 points/minutes to get started. With an overwhelming feature set, VoxOx continues an uphill climb against better-known competitors or those who focus on a single feature, but it's hard to ignore the appeal of what's offered.

"consumes too much memory, otherwise neat app"

October 06, 2010  |  By iswaryam

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.9

Pros

Clutter-free and user-friendly UI. Easy to configure the networks, chat interface is cool

Cons

1. Skype needs to be running in the bgrnd for Vox to be able to connect, both together eat up a lot of system memory. I also end up seeing 2 chat windows, 1 from skype, 1 from Voxox !!!
2. Cannot modify font size

Summary

Cool app, and would have continued using it if only Skype and Voxox can run independent of each other, like Trillian, for e.g.

"Finally an all in one comm. with everything on one page"

October 02, 2010  |  By rlynch33

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.9

Pros

I can use all my social connections on one page. I can phone, fax, SMS ,or chat. Even send files (when I figure it out).When your buget has no incoming funds this program fits the bill...globaly!!

Cons

The send files option lacks functions. When recieving a phone call online I cant seem to press the correct number for the option. Not sure whats going on there just yet. But as time goes on Im sure things will improve.

Summary

I myself really like this program even with its faults. I like the pricing but fear as things get better the price will sky rocket.

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.9

Pros

EXCELLENT! SEE MY BOTTOM-LINE REPLY!

Cons

NOTHING, IT'S ALL GOOD & PROBABLY GETTING BETTER WITH NEW UP-DATES!!!!

Summary

- I was one of the first ones with skype only approx., 150k members, now more than 100Mil.
- Always liked skype & still using daily, and when traveling it's a must, (Unlimited US Plan)!
- I have feeling after using only briefly it's the winner...and today deleted google talk, which total waste of time & poorly done!
- I saw some replies were not quite impressed, but as if you're on the road heavy power user with different futures unbeatable!
- I am also using this new wireless WFI 2200 Virgin unlimited $40.00 I am so complete with my few bound Lenovo, I don't really even need anymore my Cell-Phone!
- Thank your for great feature rich program, which almost completes everything...! - Only thing missing...Nice Blondie....but I am working on...that..!

"Train Wreck"

August 24, 2010  |  By nicmart

 |  Version: VoxOx 2.0.9

Pros

Great idea.

Cons

Horrible execution. Maybe the buggiest software ever created. For weeks on end it isn't even possible to make calls. There are so many bugs that it is too laborious to list them.

Summary

Great gift for you masochist friend.
