Ribbit triples size of its developer community
Ribbit announced that nearly 2,000 developers have registered to get access to the Ribbit development platformâ€“ more than triple the number of developers that the company had when it launched.
At the core of Ribbit’s technology offering is a sophisticated, open platform that enables developers to bridge the worlds of traditional telephony and the web. The Ribbit SmartSwitch and open Flash/Flex-based API enables non-telephony developers to quickly build innovative, rich voice applications and integrate them into web sites, communities and applications.
“The developer platform has already generated a number of innovative solutions,” said Charles Freedman, Director of Ribbit’s Developer Platform. “The size of our community is soaring and we expect market-ready solutions to begin launching early in the next year.”
Ribbit also announced they would be providing developers a way to make money creating Ribbit applications, by providing them a mechanism to market and distribute their applications. In addition, to spur further innovation, Ribbit has also announced a challenge to its community, offering rewards for the best Personal Ribbit phone applications.
