Not exactly the cheapest, I'm afraid to say.

What type of advertising does it display and how are the ads displayed?

This is a cool application. I'm eager to see if they'll do a mobile release, since I do a ton of biz travel and need to trim some of my phone costs. Skype quality has been bad for me, so this Tabrio app is a welcome change. I've been using it for 2 weeks now, it's solid. So far it' been super cheap for me, where are you calling that it isn't the cheapest?

Default BB App

This is still in BETA mode, and multiple mobile applications are in the works. The next to be available will be work simply through your mobile browser accesible at 'm.tabrio.com '

I've been using this application for some time and have had no issues. Currently the rates do vary a little from call to call as they get they get all the kinks ironed out.

The advertising, if you download the application, you'll see is just a small banner at the bottom. Nothing that interferes with the app itself or annoys users.

Cheers,
Dr.

That's good to know. Thanks. So it's not like SIDEBAR which displays ads when you change levels on a game or in the middle of an SMS...

That's correct Daphne, it's not like that at all. In my opinion this is a pretty cool app, and will be much more usefull once the full mobile apps are released.

Cheers,
Dr.

Default Comments and input welcome

Hi,

My name is Christian Jensen. I am the VP at Verb Exchange - we are the company that brought you Tabrio.

We are actively developing the next several waves of functionality and would like your input.

I can't divulge everything that is coming up, but I can say that it is some pretty cool stuff.

Shoot me an email christian -at- verbx.com

Thanks!
Christian

Hey Chris, how's that Blackberry 1000 treating you?

Can you tell us if/when we can expect a blackberry specific version of Tabrio?
