The service uses a Twitter-like interface to display the audio, which can be up to 5 minutes in length. Hopes are high for this easy-to-use platform, and users have already found a myriad of uses for it.
The Guardian explains:
“It’s not only a recording device, it’s also a publishing device and that’s its great appeal,” said Richard Ranft, the head of the library’s sound archive. “It has fantastic potential – it allows people to easily capture an event as it happens. All you need is your phone, you don’t have to use recording equipment.”
