Audioboo iPhone plugin
Now you can simply include audio recording in your app.
The Audioboo iPhone plug in is a small library that allows iPhone developers to include an Audioboo tab within their existing application. It launches our familiar recording and publishing views, as well as listing boos to listen to. In fact, the plugin has one thing that the official app doesn’t – the ability to record to a channel. A channel is a more prominently branded place on audioboo.fm, like http://audioboo.fm/channel/allinthemind - with the ability to have different permissions applied to it (anyone can post, only named contributors or just the account owner). In addition, they support moderation, so all the audio from your users is only made public once it’s been listened to and approved. Channels are nice but until now only recordable via the website. This has changed that.
What are going to be the uses? User feedback? Near live news content? We honestly don’t know. But that’s the exciting bit!
If you’re a developer, just download the code at http://audioboo.fm/account/services It’s pretty well documented. If you’re normal like the rest of us, suggest to your favourite app developers that they just might like to try it out.
