Sharing more of life’s moments in real time. A Story of Prip at Sea.
We love receiving emails, blog post replies and Tweets telling us how our customers are using Prip for both business and for simply staying in touch with family and friends. The other day, we received a special email from a very satisfied Prip user named Dhaval Bhagat. Dhaval told us how he used Prip to stay in touch with his elderly mother while she was on a long-distance cruise. Let us know how you’re using Prip. Who knows? Your story could end up in our next blog post!
“My 81 years “young” mother has just embarked on a very unusual 30-day cruise that originates from Cape Town, South Africa and ends in Singapore, with many stops along the way. Because she is not too savvy regarding communications, especially when traveling outside the U.S., I helped her figure out exactly what to do. Before her trip, I contacted the cruise line to find out more information regarding any Wi-Fi limitations. They informed me that Skype was not possible due to the limited

Prip App available for iPhone
The Prip team is incredibly excited to announce Prip for the iPhone! It is extremely gratifying to deliver what our Prip PTT enthusiasts have been asking for daily: instant real-time push to talk on iOS. We know, we know, iOS finally. There were several steps that needed to occur before we could launch the iOS app.
The first Prip app on Android was tightly tied to Google Play for credential and billing management. If we were to launch an app on iOS, we would need to take a fresh look at how we manage your PTT credentials and billing. This meant moving to an entirely new platform to enable us to support customers regardless of OS. Now, Prip users on Android or iOS can take their PTT number with them, whether they log onto an Android device or an iPhone. An additional benefit of this platform is that it provides support for business customers in a way that neither Google Play nor the Apple App Store can accommodate. Business customers now have a dashboard to administer their employees PTT accounts, whether they have 2 or 2,000 PTT numbers.
Prip PTT App now has new features and a new lower price
Happy New Year from the Prip team! And, what better way to start the New Year than with an improved Prip experience and a new lower price? We are excited to announce a new account management platform, and a new $1.99/month price. With our new platform, we have moved away from Google Play for account management and are sharing the savings with you, our customers. The new lower price is available for new and existing customers. Current customers will keep their PTT number and if you are still within your free trial period, don’t worry, when you migrate to the new platform you will not be charged for the first 31 days. So, go ahead, download the new app, and complete your information on the new platform!
Prip gives U.S. Customs Broker a competitive advantage.
We know those of us who work on the Prip application are very excited about bringing the first true Push-to-Talk application to the United States, so we were thrilled to hear how the app is helping give our customers a true competitive advantage. Recently we had the opportunity to speak with Prip user Joe Arévalo, to learn how Push-to-Talk is helping his business communicate efficiently and effectively. Here are some highlights from our conversation:
What is so special about #33?
Open up Prip, tap the settings icon (3 vertical dots), select “My Info,” and look under the “PTT” heading. There, you will find your PTT number. Everyone in the US will find that their PTT number begins with the number 33. In PTT parlance, this is called your “urban.”
So, why did we select 33?
What is the significance of 33? The repetition of the “3” certainly makes it memorable. Maybe, it was chosen randomly or was the only number available. Or perhaps, there was more to this selection. What do we know about the number 33? A human spine has 33 vertebrae and 33 is the temperature at which water boils according to the Newton scale. But we’re not scientists.
Prip: Bringing the U.S. & Mexico closer
There are many things that identify us as a company. During the time we’ve been operating in Mexico, we have built our own identity thanks to the things we have achieved and because of the way in which we have achieved them. In a relatively short time, we have become one of the main competitors in one of the most dynamic industries in our country.
Prip: Trayendo los EE.UU. y México más cerca
Hay muchas cosas que nos identifican como compañía. Durante el tiempo que hemos estado presentes en México, hemos alcanzado una identidad propia gracias a lo que hemos logrado y a cómo lo hemos alcanzado. En relativamente poco tiempo, nos hemos convertido en uno de los principales competidores de una de las industrias más dinámicas en nuestro país.
Why Push-to-Talk? Why Prip?
To say a lot has been going on around here since we launched Prip a few months ago would be quite an understatement. The Prip team has been working incredibly hard to bring some exciting new updates and features to the new push-to-talk app. First and foremost, we are preparing to launch an iOS version of the app. We wanted to give our Prip enthusiasts a chance to meet some of the people behind the app. Today, we sat down with Bob Ewald, VP of Product Management at NII.
