RealNetworks offers new ringback tone service

RealNetworks, Inc. (NASDAQ: RNWK) said it has introduced a new app and service for music lovers and listeners that completely reinvents the ringback tone experience for smartphone users.

The app is called LISTEN, and it makes setting up and managing ringback tones the easier and more flexible than ever before.

With LISTEN, consumers can assign specific songs to different contacts and add images to those contacts; enjoy intuitive features such as an automatic “top callers” list based on the user´s call history, and song-matching based on music already on their phone; assign a specific voice status alert to tell callers when they´re unable to answer their phone, such as while driving or in class; and let friends choose what song they want to hear when they call you.

RealNetworks, in partnership with more than 100 carriers across the globe, currently manages more than 18 million active global ringback tone subscribers mostly in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia. In 2002, RealNetworks´ WiderThan Division launched the world´s first ringback tone service with SK Telekom in South Korea.

RealNetworks creates innovative products and services that make it easy for people to connect with and enjoy digital media. RealNetworks invented the streaming media category and continues to connect consumers with their digital media both directly and through partners, aiming to support every network, device, media type and social network.
