[prMac.com] Rochester, New York - No Tie's Ringtones Uncensored and AutoRingtone apps were named two of the Top Three Best Ringtone Apps by 148apps' BestAppEver.com contest, with results revealed during MacWorld. Users voted for their favorite apps, and when the results were in, No Tie's apps accounted for an unprecedented five of the Top Ten finalists! Notably, Ringtones Uncensored was the #2 vote getter and AutoRingtone was #3. Additional apps from No Tie that made the Top Ten in that category included Ringtone Director and RINGTON.ES.
No Tie's ringtone apps offer Talking Caller ID, a feature absent from the iPhone, which is both extremely fun and extremely practical. Instead of guessing whose phone is ringing or which song is for which contact, your iPhone can tell you, literally in either a funny or professional voice. The latest version of the iOS app includes 43 voices including Australian, British, Valley Girl, Jersey Girl, Wise Guy and more! With iOS 5, users can be informed of incoming text messages, emails, alarm alerts and more, all using the custom talking ringtones from No Tie's AutoRingtone-based apps. No Tie offers their ringtone apps for iPhone, iPad, Mac OS, Android, Windows Phone and Samsung Bada.
In another category, Best Special Needs App, No Tie's AutoVerbal Talking Soundboard also finished in the Top Ten. This comes just weeks after AutoVerbal was selected as a winner in the Relationship/Family Caregiving category in the first annual Sterling Awards competition, as announced at the Silvers Summit Conference at CES. Sponsored by AARP, the Sterling Awards identify the very best in technology innovation and product excellence for Americans age 50 .
The bestselling app, for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices, allows people who are non-verbal, due to stroke, surgery or other conditions such as Cerebral Palsy or Autism, to communicate using hundreds of photo buttons representing common words or phrases. Users can also program a variety of buttons to speak custom messages. Finally, users can type anything and it will be spoken using Text-To-Speech.
"No Tie is honored to have been singled out for their contributions to the Non-Verbal community," noted Todd Bernhard, President of No Tie. "Many of us take something as simple as talking for granted, but it can be a struggle for so many, whether they are children or seniors. Our goal with AutoVerbal was to create an elegant yet affordable app that people of any age could use and not feel stigmatized. When AutoVerbal became the #1 iPad Medical app and #2 iPhone Medical app, we were thrilled, but it's the ongoing appreciation from our users that is really satisfying."
AutoVerbal builds upon the success No Tie Software has had with the AutoRingtone family of TEXT-TO-SPEECH Talking Ringtone apps. AutoRingtone users have created over 4 million custom ringtones using the same Text-to-Speech technology behind AutoVerbal. AutoRingtone assists both the visually impaired community as well as mobile professionals who would prefer to hear who is calling rather than take their eyes of the road. They don't need to see their phone and they don't have to remember which song is for which contact. AutoRingtone lets their phone tell them who is calling, literally!
