David The SoundCloud iPhone App

With the new update of the iPhone app, we’re coming one step closer to the full SoundCloud experience on your mobile. Most importantly, the app is now available for free for all users. If you can’t wait to get it, jump right into the iTunes App Store.

New update: iPhone App by Weatherman

As mentioned in today’s update, the iPhone app now also supports the Record feature and will allow you to capture and share any type of sound while you’re on the move. So no matter if it’s the first chords of an acoustic demo version of a new song, a voice memo, interview or a new joke for your next stand-up session, the SoundCloud  iPhone app will let you record and share your sounds in just a moment.

Here’s a run-down of the new features:

  • Record: capture your sounds on-the-go and share them directly to Facebook, Twitter and MySpace (only iPhone 3Gs and 4 since the app relies on the AAC hardware encoder)
  • Browse and search user profiles
  • Share any public track to Facebook & Twitter

Other features included:

  • Send tracks via email from your local address book
  • Listen to your favorites on the go

  • Switch between multiple accounts (Revoke access in the general iPhone settings)

    What are the technical specs on the recording quality? Is it worth getting a good mic and preamp?

    I have iPhone 3gs and I am getting “Sorry, your iPhone can’t record” when I hit the Rec button. ideas?

    Alex, afraid recording is only possible with the 3Gs and 4 since we rely on
    the AAC encoder for recordings and this one is only supported on the later
    models. We’re currently looking at ways to offer Record on other iPhone
