I love it when you can manipulate and manage the same data in multiple ways.
Dealing with the same information in different ways allows more flexibility for the person dealing with that information. The trick here is to avoid so many options you do not know what to do with all the options staring you in the face.
Sometimes the simple is so obvious it eludes you until someone shows you how to do it right.
Take VoiceCloud's version of voicemail. You can receive messages directly to your mobile phone in a text message and you can also listen to the original message in your email as an MP3. As shown below.
Manage all of your messages by way of email, without going through the linear "old-fashioned" way of one message then another when there are many to deal with (such as after a vacation or being a very connected person).
