There is a new program that will allow you to make phone calls from inside of flash applications. It’s called Ribbit. Ribbit will let you put features that allow calling into games, websites, emails, and any other types of applications. You could even make a stand-alone flash application that could act as a phone on your computer.
You may be wondering, why would I ever want to put phone calls into flash. Well, here’s an example. Say you make a quiz game and want to let people ‘phone a friend’. You could actually let them phone a friend using this service. Of course there’s more than just that, it’s up to you to decide what you can do with it.
Now for the best part; The Killer App Challenge. They are offering a $15,000 prize for the best 5 applications, with smaller prizes of $1,000 and $250 for second and third. The total amount of prizes comes out to $100,000 worth of money. So what are you waiting for, go check out Ribbit.
