SAM- Skype Answering Machine


"I am away from my computer right now.  Please leave a message after the beep and I will return your Skype as soon as possible".  This scenario is now a reality with the release of SAM- the Skype Answering Machine.  SAM is a totally free utility that works with most PCs and requires a compatible sound card and an active logged in Skype account.  This is way cool and terribly useful if you Skype much.

This is what I have been waiting for for so long …
I already donated $15 to Alex the devloper. Hope he will improve SAM to have an e-mail sent when you have a message and make the database web oriented for the mobile use .
Thanks so much Alex ! keep up the good work !


Wow this looks great. This was often requested on the Skype forum as an additional feature. Nice to see a third party make use of the Skype API’s. I can’t wait to be away from my computer and for someone to call.
