Vyng, a US based company has made an app that brings video ringtone feature in smartphones. This app allows users to set a lock screen video ringtone through their app. On offer are variety of bollywood videos and you can easily set them as your video ringtone by just few screen taps. There are plenty of free and paid videos at your disposal.
And of course, you can upload your own personal video as well for your video callertune / ringtone.
One requirement is that you must have the Vyng app installed on your phone and on caller’s phone. So, the person calling you must have Vyng on his phone to see the video ringtone. Otherwise, video callertune feature will not work.
Here is a video of Vyng in action.
The company has received 4 million dollars in funding and now has total of $7 million from their top investors. It also holds three patents to safeguard their unique technology.
The Vyng app is available in 174 countries and that list includes populous nations like India, USA and Bangladesh.
Downside? The app is available for only Android phones but since iPhone has small marketshare in India, I don’t think there will be many complaints.
