Ribbit announces cloud communications suite for mobile users
Ribbit has released Ribbit Mobile, a cloud-based service that provides a new way to manage calls, messages and phones. Ribbit Mobile's core set of features - including voicemail transcription, smart call routing and Web-based calling - is intended
to transform the way people communicate by letting them decide how, when and where they want to stay in touch.

Ribbit is a stand-alone subsidiary of BT, and is encouraged to make partnerships and relationships with global integrators of all types.

"With voice and data networks merging, consumers, businesses, software developers and even traditional telecommunications carriers are exploring new ways to communicate and evaluating how to successfully manage multiple communication streams," said Ribbit CEO Ted Griggs. "The challenge is that up until now the ways in which we most commonly communicate-voice, text, email, IM-exist in largely separate online and offline worlds. Ribbit Mobile is changing all of that."

Ribbit Mobile lets users merge multiple phones, route mobile calls to other phones and even answer their mobile calls on the Internet. Ribbit Mobile users can stay connected on their own terms-wherever they are-so they never miss another important call.

Unlike other Internet voice services, Ribbit Mobile doesn't require a new phone number, a new phone or a software download-and the service can be made active on any mobile phone. Ribbit Mobile also converts voicemail to text and sends it to users via SMS and email, eliminating the need to dial into voicemail and listen to messages. It also provides an online message inbox where messages can be managed and stored forever.

Ribbit Mobile also offers users a back-up phone online for those times when a users' device is lost, stolen, broken or mobile service is unavailable. The Web-based version of the mobile device enables Ribbit users to continue to make and take "mobile" phone calls via an Internet connection, regardless of their location or device accessibility.

The service is built on the Ribbit Platform - an extensible platform with open APIs that lets developers add features to Ribbit Mobile. The company expects as more developers create applications, the service will become increasingly powerful and innovative.

Ribbit is also announcing the "Developer Rewards" program which will compensate developers based on how much their applications are used, even if their applications are offered for free to end users. Unlike traditional app stores, Ribbit developers are rewarded on creating the most useful and popular applications that drive platform and network usage.

During the introductory beta period, Ribbit is making its "Professional" package free for everyone on a trial basis.
