So with all that good stuff how could they possibly improve? Well, I think the Android app (at least for Gingerbread and earlier) has two fundamental problems:
1. There's no option for speakerphone. That means you're stuck putting the phone to your ear when you listen to the voicemails. A bit of a pain in the butt especially given #2:
2. The app doesn't take advantage of the proximity sensor. So whenever you stick the phone to your ear you may accidentally pause the voicemail as it plays back.
Overall it's a great app, but those two flaws are pretty amateur in my opinion. I can't understand how somebody who works at Google would not have reported and fixed these by now. Or maybe they have in Ice Cream Sandwich. I guess I'll know in a few months!
