Main Document

If ringtones can be customized to help you recognize a contact, why not let your phone's vibrations indicate who's on the other end of the line

Caller ID with vibration patterns. Feel who's calling you. "Vibe" is like Caller ID but with Vibration Patterns. Pick a contact and set a unique vibration pattern - it's that easy!

ViBe is a communication Android app that allows users to set vibration patterns for contacts. Think of it as caller ID with vibration patterns.

Whether you're in an office meeting, class, or on a movie date, there's no need to pull out your phone anymore to see who's calling because you'll feel it.

Introducing "ViBe": the social experience that lets users link one or more friends with a distinct vibration pattern.

ViBe is also designed as an accessibility tool for disabled individuals, most notably the blind and hearing impaired.

ViBe is also compatible with your Facebook and Android contacts.

"Not every app should be complicated. Vibe is an example of a brilliantly simple idea, elegantly executed." - The Telegraph U.K.

"Most of us are too busy and even busier are our phones. So if you need to look up and see who is calling every time, it really becomes irritating" - TechLivez
