It seems as though everyone is fighting to be the break-out augmented reality application. Broadcastr joins the party and it just became available in the Android Market. The best way I can describe Broadcastr is it is an audio version of Twitter. Broadcastr is a social media platform for location-based stories. You can record and listen to audio stories associated with a particular location.
Broadcastr debuted in December and was created by Electric Literature co-founders Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum. They describe their service as:
“We tweet. We blog. We YouTube. We connect on Facebook. What about our voices? Now, we broadcast them. Broadcastr is a new Social Media platform. Anyone, anywhere in the world, can record, index, listen to, and share audio via a map-based interface. From the historical to the hysterical, the hilarious to the anecdotal, Broadcastr amplifies all our voices.”
