March, 2011

Broadcastr, a new iPhone app, lets users record audio, then tag a geo-location for their vocal file. Uploaded files are available for all Broadcastr users to download and listen to. The company has thus-far partnered with companies such as the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, Fodor’s Travel Guides and the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation. Andy Hunter, co-founder of Broadcastr, said, “We want to change the way people perceive place, and think of place and culture and history. Broadcastr could have an archive in two years that is already invaluable. And in 10 years, it could be you don’t even think about visiting a place and wandering around without it.”
