Say “I Love You’ with Free Valentine’s Day-Inspired Heartbeat App from Rebtel
San Francisco, USA & Stockholm, Sweden – February 11, 2013 – Rebtel today announced the launch of a free Valentine’s Day app, called Re:Beat - a new way to declare your love on Valentine’s Day that’s far more personal than a card, a box of chocolates or even roses. Now available for download to any iPhone or Android device, Re:Beat, lets you send your digital heartbeat to your sweetheart whether they’re sitting across the room, across the country or overseas.
Here’s how Re:Beat works:
All you have to do is stick your finger on your phone’s camera, and the app will use the camera and flash in conjunction to detect your pulse by measuring the subtle changes of your finger’s color.
The app then creates an animated representation of your heart with timed sounds, which you can then send to a loved one via text, Facebook or Twitter.

“Millions of people use Rebtel to stay in touch and for Valentine’s Day this year, we wanted to do something a bit different that was still related to our mission of providing free and low-cost voice and messaging services to our growing global user base,” said Anna-Ålenius Mathson, head of PR & communication at Rebtel. “We think that sending your heartbeat to someone dear to you is a perfect way to express the depth of your love, especially if you’re not able to see them in person.”
Rebtel Re:Beat can be downloaded for free from the App Store and Google Play today.
