Ribbet™ Photo Editing Suite - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, I have been programming native and web apps since I was a boy (I’m now 41). Now though, I work with other experienced developers who do all the coding on Ribbet, as well as other managers and designers. I am still involved with some programming (and design) from time to time, but my focus is increasingly on the higher level of running the company.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

We built Ribbet for iOS and Android from the ground up, without using much existing code at all. This was challenging from a technical perspective, as image editing is somewhat complex, but also it was challenging creating an intuitive and fun-to-use photo editor.

Ben Meisner is the founder of Ribbet, who produce easy to use, creative and fun photo editing apps for iOS, Android, PC and Mac.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

I like Trello for its simplicity for collaborating on projects, Snapchat for its sense of fun, and eBay because I love browsing for and from time to time purchasing stuff.

How long have you been working on this app?

The iOS app since late 2015 and Android since 2017. Ribbet for Desktop has been under development since 2012.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

To be creative and have fun editing their photos.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

The photo editing space is filled with a lot of apps – some good, some not so good. The photo apps I admire are those which allow everyone to be creative and apply powerful effects to their photos, regardless of their technical skill level. I believe that all of us have a creative side, that can be nurtured as much as we choose. The idea of Ribbet is to nurture that side of people, and I feel the apps achieve that. The Ribbet apps are a work in progress, and over the next year you’ll see a lot of new functionality, that will bring them even closer to this goal.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

You’ll find a complete set of stickers you can add to your photos (similar to the desktop version of Ribbet), the ability to erase from stickers and effects, lots more effects and touch-up tools, and the ability to start editing a photo on one platform and finish on another. We are also working on an exciting new browser-based (HTML5) version of Ribbet for desktop and an app for Amazon Fire tablets.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

Please try the app; and if you like it, leave us a positive review on the App Store or on Google Play.
