Application Built in Adobe Flex and Adobe AIR

Verb Exchange and Nitobi Partner on Tabrio

Verb Exchange announced a deal with interface design specialist, Nitobi, to develop the desktop and web interfaces for Tabrio, a new way to stay in touch with anyone, anywhere. Verb Exchange and Nitobi will work together to enhance the Tabrio user experience, making Tabrio feature-rich.

With Tabrio, users choose from web, desktop or mobile access to place long distance calls or send and receive SMS text messages to anywhere in the world. It utilizes existing networks to provide best-of-breed call quality, while still offering VoIP's significant cost savings. Additional features allow users to synchronize their contacts, send instant messages, and perform web searches from directly within the application.

"Tabrio targets the millions of people around the world who need a better way to stay in touch. Our goal is for those people to download Tabrio and understand it immediately," says Christian Jensen, VP, Products and Services, Verb Exchange. "That's where Nitobi excels. Their work will translate directly to more users, higher customer satisfaction, and increased profits."

The interactive UI is being developed with Adobe Flex, a Flash-based rich Internet application (RIA) development framework, and the Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR), a platform that enables RIAs to run on the desktop. Flex and AIR were chosen for the ability to deliver highly interactive applications that deploy consistently in all major browsers on Mac and PC.

"Our goal is to make Tabrio the easiest to use application of its kind," says Andre Charland, President and Founder, Nitobi. "Tabrio has the opportunity to change the way people communicate, and it's extremely exciting to be a part of that."
