Sometimes it’s easier to contact people through your computer or tablet, rather than your mobile phone. With Ringya, it’s easy to work across various platforms.
In this blog post you’ll learn how to:
- Send emails to Ring contacts from your computer
- Share a link to a Ring via email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
- Use Ringya on your tablet (even if you don’t have a smartphone)
Send emails from your computer to Ring contacts
Say you want to email contacts from a Ring but you want to do so from your computer, as opposed to your smartphone. No problem. You can send yourself a copy of their email addresses, plus a link that lets you send an email to them from your computer.
Once you open a Ring, click on the menu button (bottom right) and select “Group Message.” Then choose “Email from Computer”. You’ll then have the option of selecting some or all of the contacts from the list. (Remember, you can view the list by role/company/department if that helps…for instance, if you want to email everyone in the NY office or only the moms from the 2nd grade class list, you can choose to only send yourself those emails.) After selecting which emails you want, hit “Next” (top right) and then “Send me the emails”. Check your inbox for the contacts.
Share a Ring via link
Say you want to share a Ring with a friend, colleague or family member but you want to invite them your way, as opposed to having Ringya text or email them on your behalf. Simply open the Ring and touch the menu button (bottom right). Choose “Share Ring” and then “Share via link”. Choose “Create Link” and then you’ll be able to ask Ringya to email you a link to the Ring. Once the link arrives in your inbox, you can copy it into an email or send it to relevant contacts via social media. You can also copy the link from within the app, saving yourself a step. When you get to the “Share via Link” screen, simply touch the link and it will allow you to copy it. Then you can paste it into an email, text, etc. from within your phone.
Use Ringya on your tablet (even if you don’t have a smartphone)
Ringya currently supports only one phone number per user, but you can use several devices (including tablets, iPod Touch) using the same phone number. So if you don’t have a smartphone and want to use Ringya on your tablet or you want to access the app on both your smartphone and your iPod Touch or tablet, you can do so.
Register Ringya on your cell phone (the main phone). When you register, a text with a 4 digit code will be sent to your main phone. Download Ringya onto your tablet or iPod Touch using the main phone number and use the 4 digit code. Once done, you’ll have access to the Rings on the other device.
