        audio message as well as see recent messages from the same caller.

"It's an exciting day at Ribbit; with the approval from Apple on this app, all the great functionality users have loved since the launch of Ribbit Mobile in November is now available on the iPhone. Those who already know and love the iPhone, as well as those who are counting on getting it at Christmas, will be able to experience what makes Ribbit Mobile so unique, including the ability to keep voicemail forever or share it with friends and colleagues -- all within the native functionality of the device. It's really a new way of addressing communications as our methods of staying in touch evolve."
