Today we’re launching version 2.5 of our apps for iOS and Android.
The biggest development: sets are here on iPhone and Android. You’ve been able to create and hear them in your stream on the web for a while; now you can create, share and hear sets on your mobile, too. We’ll be adding the functionality to the iPad app in the coming weeks.
Build new collections of your favorite music & audio, or add individual sounds to sets that you’ve already started building. Plus, a new filter in the search tab lets you look for sets that other community members have put together.
You might notice that the Record button has moved: to help you discover and hear more with the app, we’ve shifted things around to make way for sets and more features (watch this space). iPhone users can find it in the ‘More’ menu. If you’re on Android, just swipe to find it in the side menu.
For iOS users, we’ve also given the UI an update, making it cleaner, sharper and simpler. Look out for the updated app icon, too.
We hope you’ll give the new apps a spin. As always, they’re free to download from Google Play or the Apple App Store. Let us know how you like the updates! We’re looking forward to your feedback.
Today we’re celebrating the awesome fact that there are now more than 100 apps connected to SoundCloud. All apps are on display in our newly updated App Gallery in order to make it easier for you to find the tools and services that will take your SoundCloud experience to the next level.
The New App Gallery:
Whether you’re a music professional or just a casual creator you’ll to find something interesting in the Gallery. Take a look around to find a wide range of apps for mobile, desktop and the web.
For us, the connected apps are a vital part of the SoundCloud. By letting third-party apps connect, we can focus on building a kick-ass audio sharing platform. At the same time, app makers can help us improve by letting you upload your tracks directly from apps, create nice looking artist pages, distribute your tracks to iTunes, and a lot more.
The latest addition to the list of apps is the brand new iMS-20 from our Japanese friends at Korg. The app is really cool, not only because it sports a great emulation of the classic MS-20 synth, but also because you can share and collaborate on projects right in the app.
And here’s a little video of that SoundCloud integration in action:
As you know, we love audio creators, but we also love developers! Therefore, we will keep on working our hardest to not only make SoundCloud an awesome place for sound sharing, but also an open and easily accessible platform for developers.
FiRe, the popular iPhone field recorder app by our friends at Audiofile Engineering has been updated to version 1.3.0.
The new version adds features like input processing effects powered by iZotope, expanded metadata support, file encoding, and more. The SoundCloud integration has also been polished to make it even smoother to export your iPhone recordings to the cloud.
Check out all the new features and get FiRe 1.3.0 in the App Store.
Record anywhere and upload to SoundCloud straight from the app.
