Foundbite on Windows Phone gets updated with completely new capture process and more

There are little gems available on the Windows Phone Store that are worth your time to check out. One of these is Foundbite, developed by James Mundy and published through the AppCampus program. The app enables you to record the ambience of any given location, accompanied by a photography or gallery of shots.

Foundbite has been pushed to the store, introducing a number of improvements. Snap on past the break to see what's new.

If you've not used Foundbite before, the changes in this released will be warmly welcomed. Sometimes when recording sounds while taking numerous photos, the end result would see some stuttering involved through playback. This update addresses that issue, while also fixing other problems reported by consumers.

Since it's a new social network built on sharing the world around you through sound, the team behind the app has now included functionality for you to find friends on Foundbite using Twitter and/or Facebook. Should you happen to have friends who aren't yet using the app, you can fire out some invites using Facebook - the app utilises cool tech which suggests closest friends to invite first. 

Here's everything included in

  • The ability to find friends using from Twitter/Facebook already using the app.
  • Invite friends via Facebook (using some cool tech from a company called Rummble Labs it suggests your closest friends first).
  • Smoother scrolling on the feed and no flickering anymore.
  • You can now change the resolution without the app crashing.
  • Completely reworked capture process that leaves the original mode but adds a new default that’s really nice for composing foundbites.
  • Upload improvements.
  • Small “how –to” added about capturing a foundbite.

It's a sweet update and we're glad to see the teething problems ironed out. If you find yourself traveling around, or even venturing out just for the day, we recommend you check out this app to get down some awesome photos with sound to boot.

You can download Foundbite from the Windows Phone Store for free (requires Windows Phone 8 - 512MB hardware supported).
