Quick App: TweetMic Sound Recording Twitter Client for iPhone


TweetMic [$0.99 - iTunes link] puts a whole new spin on Tweeting. With TweetMic you are basically able to Twitter small podcasts via this application. What happens when you use TweetMic is you record a message via the iPhone's built in Mic, you can play it back or post it with a short Twitter message.

Once you "Publish to Twitter" the application uploads the recording to its server and attaches a link to your post, so when your followers receive the tweet, they will see the link and the website it brings up will allow them to play the message via a computer or an iPhone.

Of course having WiFi of 3G will be better than using an EDGE connection when uploading you messages.

If you want to add audio recording to your Tweets, then this is definitely the best option out there. If you check it out, let us know what you think (or record a message for us on Twitter!)

I'd have to disagree. TweetMic, if interrupted by a call, will lose the recording made, and I mean completely. I've heard that if the upload gets interrupted by a weak WiFi/3G signal, then the audio is lost too. I know it's meant for Twitter, but the app doesn't give you an option to export the file for your own use, or email it to someone, or store up a bunch of audio for later tweeting. It has to be sent and used there and then.
VR+ from Shape (makes of IM+) has none of those shortcomings. You can choose from 4 or 5 quality levels/bitrates, you can upload the file to their servers, Twitter, Facebook, MySpace, Blogger, or even email it to a friend. You can do all of these things as many times as you want with each recording because it saves everything in a backlog. Think Birdhouse, but for audio.
Most surprising part for me was when I closed the app in the middle of recording something... on next launch, it lets you pick up exactly where you left off and keep on going. In my book, that makes VR+ the best option for Tweetcasts right now.
