audioBoo is my favourite app. This is what audioBoo 2 beta for the iPhone looks like. Gorgeous isn’t it? :)
If you have not discovered audioBoo yet, shame on you :)
audioBoo is a great site/app that lets you record and share audio. Go and check out audioboo.fm their own blog will tell you all about it.
I tend to fire up the audioBoo iPhone app when trying to raise myself out of my slumber in the morning. I flick the the recent Boo’s and have a listen to what takes my fancy.
A few weeks ago I came across an audio stream from Lincoln Police Department. I mistook it as LAPD. But no it was from The Traffic Section of Lincoln Police Department. Every day they fire up audioBoo and give out traffic updates. Their audioBoo profile blurb is real funny too “Eyes on the road, nose between the ditches and slow your butt down”.
But it is the style they deliver their updates, seriously if you have not checked them out you should. Today it is Officer Jared. Here are a couple of their Boo’s
Listen to them quick as they tend to delete them for some reason.
I wonder if these guys know that they are amassing a little fan club over here in UK. Even Mark Rock CEO of audioBoo is a fan ssshhh I didn’t tell you that ok :)
We need to get them to stop deleting their Boo’s too. Go find them and follow them here audioboo.fm/LPDtraffic
What is new in AudioBoo Beta 1.3?
It’s a 30 minute version that saves audioboo’s before upload. That means you can either record audioboos back to back very quickly or record a bunch when out of range of 3G and then reopen the app when in range and watch them lovingly upload one at a time. It’ll try and find your location via an Edge connection when recording though.
Also, this version also has a detailed view of boos, so you can see the image, tags & location details. More to come… All The words of Mark Rock.
You will notice an extra button called “Uploads”
Recording looks the same, but look at the Uploads button now.
When out of signal range you have the option to save boo’s for upload later.
The ability to save a whole load of boo’s for uploading later is fabulous. Us folk here in the UK are tied to O2 cell phone network. It’s 3G coverage is very poor (well around my neck of the woods it’s shockingly poor). So the upload later when in range of wifi or good 3G is a must.
My only suggestion with the save and upload later would be that the user controls when the saved boo’s upload . In this beta they all upload as soon as you open the app in range of decent network coverage. I could see this being spammy, especially if you have say 20 boo’s cued in uploads. But it is also important to remember that this is a beta, and for me a step in the right direction.
I love AudioBoo and I would urge folk to get it and start booing today.
@krystynchong asked me today what is AudioBoo, I answered the best way I knew how, with a boo of course.
I hope you get the AudioBoo app and I hope you enjoy booing as much as I do.
Go find out how to get AudioBoo from AudioBoo.fm
Oh and you guys with Android, ehem I believe there is a beta version out for you as well.
How do you AudioBoo? the video explains what I am asking.
And this is the AudioBoo I filmed.

This is just an AudioBoo test. I just want to see how AudioBoo embeds into my blog.
