Funkytone - Android content app for animators
Written by Charles   
Wednesday, 01 August 2012 06:21

Happy to introduce Funkytone to our readers. Funkytone is an Android application that upgrades your incoming call screen with cool, fun, community based ringtone animation - or as they say in the vernacular - "Funkytones".

This is real Adobe Flash based animation which is rendered by device. Funkytone is so smart that it can even animate your caller name, phone number and image. Imagine seeing your friends on the front page of a newspaper, or as targets for airborne eggs.

Funkytone is based on community generated content. You don't know what the next Funkytone will be. This makes the app even more exciting and opens the door to unlimited world wide creativity.

The Funkytone developers believe in animation and give respect in the deal. Each animator can share or sell their work through Funktytone and take a 50/50 split after Google gets its cut. They also provide a tab in their market for each artist where a few words about yourself can be written or provide links to anything  you'd to share.

Search for "Funkytone" in Google Play or click on this link to access the app. For animators that want to join in on the Funkytone venture, you can drop a note at: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it with some words about yourself, including some links to your work and Funkytone will get in touch real soon.

You can follow Funkytone on their website. They're also on Facebook and on Twitter.

Enjoy the absurdity of "The Hourglass Threshold". Here's the link to the Forum topic.
