Vringo, a provider of software platforms for mobile social and video applications, today announced that its recently launched Facetones app (developed as an Android app), has exceeded the milestone threshold of 100,000 downloads.
The Facetones app creates an automated video slideshow using friends’ photos from Facebook profile and then plays this video slideshow each time the user makes or receives a mobile call. Vringo expects to integrate Facetones with other social media networks and photo sites in the near future.
It has been released through various mobile operators such as NTT DOCOMO in Japan and Telefonica in Spain & South America
“Reaching 100,000 downloads within 30 days of our active marketing promotion is a significant accomplishment,” said Andrew Perlman, Vringo’s President.
Vringo has been busy announcing other significant events, including the recent closing of a $2.5 million financing led by prominent Silicon Valley venture capital firms Benchmark Capital and DAG Ventures.
Vringo has continued to increase its revenues and decrease its operating burn-rate, while expanding its reach and launching services in sizable new markets in the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
