Sharing a revolutionary technology, the Ribbit Phone Component

The Ribbit Phone Component will give Rich internet application developers the ability to make and receive calls, record/send and receive voicemail, as well as add and manage contacts.  

Our goal in sharing this revolutionary technology with other developers is to help fill a huge void in web applications today; the ability to make true ‘one-click-calling’. The ability to click on a number within a web application and connect the user without delay or download is an unprecedented feature. Many existing and upcoming applications will benefit from this functionality, ranging from e-commerce and reservation sites to mapping and local services applications.

Many developers will find even more value in the ability to integrate a full-featured communications suite into their applications. Taking advantage of the voicemail and contacts features, developers can tap into the Ribbit user-base. This increases the number of ways Ribbit users can access and manage their information, adding tremendous value to the developer’s application as well as the overall Ribbit experience.
