Broadcastr Unveils Free iPhone App

The storytelling site Broadcastr launched an iPhone app this morning, allowing writers to record three-minute audio stories on a smartphone and link the recording to a specific location–like Foursquare for storytellers.

Follow this link to see the free app in the App Store. If you want to see how it works, this GalleyCat editor just recorded a one-minute mediation on the gloomy weather, Charlie Sheen, and pulp fiction writing economy. Electric Literature c0-founders Andy Hunter and Scott Lindenbaum introduced the storytelling site at the eBook Summit last year.

Check it out: “Just like in human memory, every story is bound to a place.
Whether dishing last night’s details to friends, uncovering local lore, perusing restaurant reviews, listening to travel guides, tuning in to citizen journalism, contemplating oral histories, or sharing hilarious anecdotes, Broadcastr amplifies all our voices. Users can take a GPS-enabled walk as stories about their surroundings stream into their headphones, like a museum tour of the entire world.”
