audioBoom Quick Tour

Welcome to audioBoom

1

It's fantastic for many things: interviews for your website, wonderful ambient sounds, music you've made, your children growing up, even a full-on radio show. You can use it for reporting, storytelling, education, as an online dictaphone, or just to let friends know what you're up to. audioBoom works on iOS and Android devices or via the web, and soon blackberry and windows 8. Our mission is to be the one platform you use when you want to record audio, share it or save it for the future.

Recording Audio

2

Get the app on your mobile or use the record buttons throughout the site. It can do everything the app does, but also adds in the ability to upload audio recorded on other devices. You can also add a title, description, a photo and a location. There's a 3 minute limit for the free plan, but you can upgrade for more.

Get yourself an account

3

You can record and upload anonymously from the mobile app but it's much more powerful with an account - all you need is an email address. We don't ask for much more, but if you enter your real name, a short bio and a web link, it makes it easier for people to know who you are. You can also upload a photo or use a gravatar.

Follow people

4

Hear something you like? Try following that person via the follow button. All your followed users' audio clips all appear on one screen, which makes it easy to keep up to date. You can find people by listening to featured or popular clips, as well as searching for things you're interested in.

Link to other platforms

5

You can choose to link to twitter, facebook tumblr or blogger. this will make sure your posts appear in your accounts on those platforms as well as always being available on audioBoom. With facebook, you even get a fancy embedded player.

Subscribe via iTunes
