Looking for a contract PHP (or RoR) rock star for dev lead on exciting new (funded) VoIP-centric web app. I expect it will be no more than 6 weeks work. Email email@example.com for info.
Lypp for Outlook is nearly complete. Here are the highlights:
- Lypp account optionally created on download/install
- Integrates with Outlook address book and Exchange global contact store
- Sync with Outlook contacts and Lypp contacts
- Create Conference Call and Calendar event at same time.
- Schedule outbound calls or dial-in Toll Free calls or combination of the two.
- Edit/modify existing call/meeting.
- Create recurring Calls/Meeting
- Right click on contact to create call
Even though I am not so much a Windows guy anymore I have been using the Lypp for Outlook Add-in through Parallels and I have to say, it makes my life soooo much easier. Now I can schedule my calendar events and my calls (even 1 to 1) at the same time, no more swivel chair.
Hmm, now if only someone would mashup the Lypp API with Google Calendar…
Conference Calling and Audio Conferencing APIs are not exactly abundant, likely because conference calling has long been a boring and mundane task that few people enjoy. That smell of martial disdain was not exactly motivating developers to come up with a better solution.
Gaboogie aims to up the happy factor considerably with the upcoming launch of Lypp: Next Generation Conference Calling and version 2.0 of the Lypp API.
The conferencing features for Lypp are vast and the API is dead simple to use, if you know XML you are set.
Stay tuned for more on that during the first couple of weeks of February.
We are making some great progress at Lypp these days. Last week we unveiled our new mobile app at Lypp.com (built on the Lypp VoIP API of course), today we released our Ruby on Rails VoIP Plugin. Here are some details taken from the Lypp Blog.
Within an hour you should be able to create a voip widget and make your first call from your application, no joke. Email api AT lypp.com for a username and password.
Stay tuned for the VoIP Mashup Contest we will be announcing soon!
