Three new ways to access the Adhearsion Sandbox
Since the launch of the new Adhearsion website earlier this year we have made a Getting Started Sandbox available to developers. We want everyone to easily give Adhearsion a try without having to setup an entire telephone system to do so. All you need to do is install Adhearsion (and maybe Ruby, depending on which operating system you use) and you may immediately begin using our free Sandbox in the cloud.
Here are the new access methods that we have recently added (more details are available on the Getting Started page here):
Phonefromhere has a Java IAX2 client that is a great way to access the Sandbox from the internet. Tim Panton of Phonefromhere has graciously made his hosted system available to us. Check out their app, as I am sure you will find it useful for your new Adhearsion applications as you roll them out.
We have been participating in the Skype for Asterisk (SFA) closed beta. We have already developed the Skype Utils Adhearsion component that I mentioned in a previous blog post and will be making available as part of the Sandbox soon. In the meantime you may use Skype to access the Sandbox to get a preview of how you may easily develop apps for the Skype world leveraging Adhearsion and Asterisk.
Voxbone has kindly donated a 10 channel inbound phone number for use with the Adhearsion Sandbox. So now you may simply use any old telephone to test your Adhearsion applications on the Sandbox infrastructure.
