I've used this (non=production person here) and vouch for the interface and quality of recordings I made due to the many features and pretty robust set of guides online that were easy to follow.

Thanks for including Audioboo in your toolkit. I'm glad that you find it useful. I've just joined the team here and I'm an avid user of the app myself. It's great for recording short interviews, reports and atmos while on the move.

You can record 5 minutes of audio from a smartphone (or upload from your computer), add a picture, title, tags and geolocation data then set it to automatically post to your blog, Twitter or Facebook account. There are pro features being developed for businesses and media organisations and we've already had Al Jazeera and The Guardian use it from the front line North Africa.

Audio is a powerful tool and we're trying to make sound social. Follow us on Twitter @Audioboo and say hello. I'm happy to help with any questions you might have.

Happy boo-ing!
Kate

Download the Livestation player to watch live TV and get screen grabs and Tweet them via Twitpic.

This is great for anyone who wants to grab breaking news footage and tweet it using Twitpics. You can then use Storify or Storyful to bring that asset into your reports.

You can also chat with other viewers to gain perspectives and enter the global conversation around breaking news. Livestation can be viewed online, too, at http://www.livestation.com/.

[Declaration of interest: I have helped Livestation as a content strategy consultant and still have an interest in the company.]

Al Jazeera, BBC, Press TV, NHK and lots more. I have been using the client for a long time and the screen grab from live feature is very useful. Chatting with viewers around the world to get their reactions to news is also quite insightful.

Hi Matt, have you found it useful at all in creating stories?
Matt's comment, March 16, 2011 9:51 AM
Yes I have as it gave me background information, ability to talk to people following the story live and get live screen grabs in seconds. Quite useful.
