Our Friend on the Tech Podcast Network, Andy McCaskey from SDR News has been out at CES with Todd, Jeffery and the bunch covering the show. Andy has found this website/service that allows for phonecasting. I’ve been listening to his updates all week and they are great.
ipadio allows you to broadcast from any phone to the Internet live. Phone blog, collect audio data, record and update the world, or simply let your friends know what you’re doing – ipadio is integrated with Social Media & Blogging platforms.
Ipadio will allow you to record using your iphone or android phone and upload the file via your data connection as a “phlog” or phonecast. You can also do live audio streaming by calling a toll free number and when your live event is done, it saves the file and puts that into your podcast feed (on ipadio).
I signed up for an ipadio account for Mike Dell’s World and have done a few updates myself. It couldn’t be easier from my Droid phone. Just launch the app, hit “record”, talk and then hit upload. Done.. The amazing part was I did this at 4am while on my lunch break at my “day” job. I then wanted to put up a link on my blog site. Well, at that time, there was only a way to post individual links to a single show. I sent a feedback email to ipadio asking if they could maybe make a sidebar widget or some code that I could embed a badge where the last phonecast would be playable and update as I make more phonecasts. At about 5am I got an email back from them that said they had added a “tools” section on the website and that the badge I was looking for could be found there. Now that’s what I call customer service!
The best part about it is, ipadio.com is FREE. The apps are FREE and it works flawlessly.
