We've all been there. Whether it be on holiday or simply out and about, there have been those moments when you wanted to take some photos, but add a special element to bring them to life. This is where upcoming Windows Phone app Foundbite comes into play. The new app by Mendzapp, the developer behind VizAge and more, enables you to add sound recordings to photos and share them online. It's an interesting concept that bring photos to life.
The app sports a simple, yet elegant interface. Focusing on content, which is right up Microsoft's street. We've seen other apps and services attempt to put a spin on taking favourite snaps and sharing them with friends, but Foundbite really is a breath of fresh air. Utilising sound, Mendzapp is attempting to change how we share memories with others. An account is not required to browse around, but after registering you're good to go with creating your own entries.
Capturing is the main focus of the app. Simply hit the capture button and you're taken to the main camera view with a handful of options available. These include the ability to configure the flash, as well as import previous sound recordings or photos. When you're ready to get cracking, simply take a picture as you would and the app will then start recording sound from that point (when the photo is saved), a counter will begin. You can then take more photos using the shutter button as the app continues to record sound.
The end result is actually really impressive (there are numerous foundbites on the official website - example 1 and 2). Here's a quick video looking at what Foundbite is all about (excuse the sample pasta cooking - seemed like the right thing to do at the time):
Those who are already on the beta have added some spectacular entries that will be worth checking out. You will be able to download Foundbite once the app is available on the Windows Phone Store. We'll let you all know when that time comes around. The official website is up, should you be interested to learn more (www.foundbite.co) and the team is still looking for beta testers, so be sure to get in touch with Mendzapp
