App Wrap: 'Shuv'

 It's an app that almost everyone I've told about it responds in the same way, by asking, "Is that really allowed? Because seems like it kind of shouldn't be." The app is called Shuv and what it allows you to do is when you call someone, you choose how their phone is going to ring. You can choose a sound, a song, or even record your own sound. This of course just lends itself to helping you create some seriously awkward situations, especially if you choose something from the gross category. You can also choose a photo to pop up on the receiver's phone to accompany your ring. Developers say this is all to help users set the tone of the conversation before the conversation even begins. Shuv is a free app for iPhones and Androids. In order for this to work though, both you and the person you’re calling must have the app.

Shuv is an amazing mobile application developed by Pink Stone LLC and Appetizer Mobile that  allows callers to choose the “ring forward tone” that the recipient will hear. The patented Ring ForwardTM technology allows you to call or send a picture to any other Shuv user with a tone or custom personal recording of your choosing, on a free, unlimited, worldwide basis (subject to any applicable carrier data charges).

This first of its kind, free iOS and Android app allows users to “set the tone” for a conversation like never before.

With their relationship with Sony Music Entertainment, the incredible app will provide thousands of songs from hundreds of Sony Music artists.  Access to Shuv’s library of songs from Sony Music will be available for $1.99 per month.

The Shuv library also features hundreds of fun sounds and tones including “Happy Birthday,” “Angry Cat,” “Evil Laugh,” “Booty Call” and more. A user can also “Shuv” his or her own personal voice recording. And with privacy a major consumer focus, Shuv has chosen to use advanced encryption technology to allow users to communicate with complete privacy and security.

“The introduction of Shuv represents the first major advancement in the ringtone industry in years,” said Chris Warnack, Founder and CEO of Pink Stone LLC, the creative force behind the innovative Shuv technology. “Shuv empowers a caller to be as creative as they want to be when setting a ringtone to accompany a call or a picture, and with the incredible content from Sony Music, the choice of ringtones is truly amazing.”

“We are pleased to be working with Pink Stone to make titles from our catalog available to Shuv users,” said Mark Piibe, Executive Vice President, Global Business Development and Digital Strategy, Sony Music Entertainment. “Music is always a central element of how fans customize their mobile experience.”

Using Shuv, users can assign a song, sound or tone to each one (or all) of their contacts via the easy-to-use application interface, which automatically syncs a users’ contacts with their friends who use Shuv. To send a picture, a user simply selects a photo from their camera roll or takes one of their own. Then they just choose a song, tone or custom audio message and send. For the first time ever the conversation starts when the phone rings.
