Remember Vox.io – an ambitious startup from Slovenia which was going to take on Skype? The business side of the startup did not work out for various reasons, however the founder of Vox.io Tomaž Štolfa joined efforts with a serial entrepreneur Ron Palmeri to create Layer . Layer aims to help developers to introduce communications such as messaging, voice and video calls into their apps, and to enable various communication apps integrate with each other.
Layer is a mobile SDK that will be available for web, iOS and Android developers to integrate communications stack into their product. This should reduce the development efforts from months to minutes. If you are using Path, you might have noticed that it took them forever to introduce messaging into it. This will change from now on.
The real disruptive element of Layer is its ability to changing the way how end users choose their communication app. Layer will allow messages to be exchanged between various applications – and the users on Whatsapp may get messages from, say, Path or receive Skype calls via Viber, for example. That is, of course, if Layer gets adopted. Stay tuned.
