Chirbit & Audioboo

Ok, most of you that read my blogs and lnow a little bit about me know that I LOVE doing audio clips. Audio microblogging, if you will. Since I have purchased my iphone, I enjoy doing audio blogging/podcasting so much more.

I had been using wordpress.com since their audio time limit is about an hour. Now with the iphone (not sure about other smartphones) wordpress audio can not be played due to the requirement of the flash player. So, I have halted there for now. I enjoy knowing that people are listening to my blogs. If my followers can’t listen on their smartphones then whats the point? I will still have it there for when its needed. Followers can always listen on their laptop or desktop.

I was trying to find the easiest audio platform that I can use and share on my iphone for microblogging. I recently used Soundcloud.com. Once again this requires flash, only to be played on laptop or desktop. I do like their nice easy embed player. The site is mostly used by individuals who mix & hardcore DJ’s. So, my account will sit there for now.

The two audio players that can be played on iphone are the following chirbit.com. The only thing about this one that an indivdual must use Voice Memos app to record their voice, email that, download it, then upload it on their profile page. I do like chirbit for its abilitity to upload files along with converting audio from videos to mp3 files.

 

 
 

There other audio platform that I totally enjoy using above the rest is audioboo.fm. This iphone app is easy to use for quick short mini podcasts. Its great. I think this is simple to use and very handy. To upgrade to 30 minutes is still a bit too expensive for my tastes when there are other options out there. It boils down to what the individual is going to be using the platform for. So, if you are thinking about doing audio, do your homework, play around, just have fun with it. Your followers will be your followers whereare you are, they will find a way to listen to you.
