Share Article

Today, the company has announced the availability of Ringo for the Treo 600 smartphone.

Electric Pocket’s Ringo application has been one of the most popular ring-tone managers for Treo brand smartphones, enabling users to compose and share custom ring-tones or download and install new ring-tones from the Internet. Today, the company announces the availability of Ringo for the Treo 600 smartphone.

Ringo enables Treo 600 users to establish customized ring-tones for specific callers or groups of callers, and assign photographs for each caller or group. Users can also choose custom tones to alert them of incoming SMS messages from key friends and contacts. Ringo also enables users to purchase and download polyphonic ring-tones. This is accomplished "over the air," using a link to a dedicated online store.

Rather than straining to read the name on the Treo 600’s Caller ID feature, users simply associate a photograph or graphic to each individual caller or to groups of callers classified together, such as “business,” “family,” or “friends.” When the Treo 600 user receives a new call, the incoming caller is identified both by a customized ring-tone and by their photograph or corresponding graphic.

Ringo makes it easy to organize ring-tone collections and adds support for adding new tones over a wireless connection. Ringo provides a built-in link to a Treo-optimized ring-tone store where users can browse and shop with their Treo smartphones. Electric Pocket’s ring-tone store is updated weekly with the latest tunes, and purchases can be made by credit card anywhere in the world. Ringo also brings industry standard "WAP Push" delivery support to the Treo. Ringo also features a tone composer which is an on-screen keyboard that enables users to create their own simple ring-tones.

Ringo joins TapDial in Electric Pocket’s family of software products for Treo 600 users. TapDial provides Treo 600 users easy access to their most frequent contacts by placing speed-dial buttons for each selected contact within the application launcher screen. Tapping on the speed-dial button will launch the phone dialer application and immediately dial the desired phone number. A new version of TapDial released today allows Treo 600 users to use photographs of their contacts on the application launcher, making for easy recognition and a really personal experience. Ringo and TapDial are available from Electric Pocket’s web site at http://electricpocket.com
