Vringo, a provider of software platforms for mobile social and video applications, has announced the launch of Facetones app on the Mobango App Store.
Vringo’s Facetones app integrates with Facebook and generates an automatic, visually exciting slideshow of pictures and social content each time a user makes or receives a phone call. Facetones will be offered to Mobango users through the free independent app store as an ad-supported version at www.mobango.com .
Badri Sanjeevi, chief operating officer at Mobango, said, “Vringo’s Facetones service provides an innovative way for users to experience mobile social connections. Playing a unique auto-generated slideshow of a friend’s latest pictures on Facebook when a user makes or receives calls is a great way to harness the best of mobile social technology.”
Facetones creates an automated video slideshow using friends’ photos from social media web sites and then plays this video slideshow each time the user makes or receives a mobile call. Facetones initially connects with Facebook, the world’s leading social media site, providing for a significantly enhanced mobile experience for users of social media. Vringo expects to integrate Facetones with other social media networks and photo sites in the near future.
