Audioboo: iPhone app billed as Twitter for audio

If you’re looking to get audio online from an iPhone, TechCrunch noted recently that Audioboo is “about to become a huge blogger and journalist tool.”

TechCrunch‘s Mike Butcher explained:

“AudioBoo is an iPhone app which has gradually been making bigger and bigger waves and is about to get a whole lot more interesting. The essential point is that you can record and upload audio from the iPhone straight to the Web, and also Tweet out the link to the audio. In fact it bills itself as Twitter for audio. A player appears on your Audioboo profile straight away and is embeddable in a blog. Admittedly that sounds less exciting than live streaming video from something like Qik, but since only a privileged handful have this app, which remains unapproved by the App store, Audioboo is the next best thing if you want to do an interview or record audio fast. The attached social network also has a ‘follow’ model, much like Twitter.
