We are pleased to share the news that the Aroundsound app is now out of private prototype and available on Google Play, as an Early Access app. You can find it here.
You can use the app to capture and edit your sound recordings. You can also share your recordings with friends and family, thereby spreading your audio joy.
I’ve personally been using the ptorotype version of the app for a few months now and have captured some wonderful memories of my children in situations where video would have pulled me (and them) out of the moment. For example, squeals of laughter during chasing games, first words uttered over breakfast and end of day chatter during bathtime. I can quick hit record (using the Quick Tile feature) and get back to being part of, and enjoying, the moment. It’s precious to have these memories saved forever and a delight to listen back and relive the moments. Sharing the recordings with others adds to the fun and spreads the joy.
The app is easy and intuitive to use, yet it’s current functionality is just a first step towards what we have planned in the coming months, such as key moment tagging, collections to organise sounds, and even easier ways to share sounds. We’re keen to ensure we’re building the right thing, and therefore having early users offering feedback is super helpful.
Please do download it, try it out and let us know what you think by emailing feedback [@] gritstonestudios.co.uk, or using the feedback link within the app.
If you are an iOS user, be assured that we are working on the iOS app currently. If you would like to find out when it is released, please let us know here.
We hope that you enjoy reliving and sharing your sound memories using the Aroundsound app as much as we do.
