Wavelength for Micro.blog
Last month I wrote about our companion app for photos, Sunlit. We continue to expand how Micro.blog can be used for sharing photos on your own blog, including a new Micro.blog for iOS update last week with better support for non-square photos and other improvements. There's also a new 📷 emoji in Micro.blog's Discover section for finding photos and people to follow.
We've now added a new app to Micro.blog: Wavelength, an iPhone app for recording, editing, and publishing microcasts. If you've thought about starting a podcast but it seemed too daunting, Micro.blog has a new hosting plan just for short-form podcasts that makes it easy to experiment with posting audio. You can upload MP3s from the web or use Wavelength to record and post them.
Already we've seen some great uses for microcasts, from our own Micro Monday podcast where Jean MacDonald interviews members of the Micro.blog community, to Clevercast with Micro.blog user @cleverdevil talking about technology and the IndieWeb, to piano recordings by @kapsa. Sometimes a quick audio post on your own microblog is the best way to tell a story or give an update on what you're up to.
Thanks for your support. If you have any questions, let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
