Voxeo Labs Launches Phono Mobile – Easily Add HD Voice and IM to iOS and Android Apps
Voxeo’s Phono Mobile allows you to add amazingly clear voice calls and instant messaging to iOS and Android apps.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) July 22, 2011
Developers can use Phono Mobile to build apps that enable interaction via voice and chat quickly and easily. For example:
- Mobile gamers can easily speak or chat with each other directly within the games they play, with high-quality HD audio and without using carrier voice minutes. “HD voice” delivers fidelity far beyond a normal phone call and makes players sound like they are in the same room as other gamers.
- Customer relationship management (CRM) providers can deliver in-app features to talk or chat with customers.
- Social platforms can add a button to instantly create a conference call incorporating all members of a group.
iOS and Android apps using Phono Mobile can even receive real phone calls from regular phones, SIP voice-over-IP (VoIP) clients, Skype users or other Phono users.
Additionally, Phono Mobile unlocks communication for non-phone devices such as the iPad, iPod Touch and Android tablets. Users of those devices can make or receive phone calls and chat conversations even though their device does not include an actual phone component. Even better, the voice calls can use HD voice to offer a far superior listening experience than traditional phone calls.
“Phono Mobile is a perfect example of how PhoneGap can enable a developer to create one app and deploy it across multiple platforms,” said Andre Charland, CEO, Nitobi Software, “We’re looking forward to seeing how developers enhance their mobile apps now that they can add audio and IM communication.”
Phono Mobile works on an iOS or Android phone or tablet using either a WiFi or 3G data connection. Apps using Phono Mobile can also connect to Voxeo’s Tropo.com cloud communications service to make use of speech recognition and text-to-speech in 24 languages, call recording, conferencing, phone number transfers, SIP, XMPP/Jingle, iNum and Skype connections as well as the ability to add communication to public instant messaging networks including GTalk, AIM, MSN, Yahoo!, Jabber and social networks like Twitter.
Phono Mobile and the Phono SDK are licensed under an open source license and the source code is freely available for further modification.
