Voice apps the next big thing

Before there were text messages, pictures and videos, people communicated by way of the human voice. It should come as no surprise that websites and apps are now making it possible for people’s voices to be heard once again.

One of these apps is Dubbler, which launched its beta version on the Android and iPhone last December. This app provides users with an easy way to record as much as 60 seconds of their voices and share them via Twitter and Facebook, reported Mashable.

“I saw a lot of people texting and posting photos on social media, but no one really communicating with their voice,” said Matthew Murphy, Founder of San Francisco-based Appsurdity, the startup that created Dubbler.

“The whole idea is you don’t text your personality, you voice it. We wanted to give people a platform to share their voice and be heard.”

To date, over 200,000 users have downloaded Dubbler. During the first day it came out of beta last weekend, it was downloaded more than 55,000 times.

The figures are impressive given that this startup didn’t conduct any marketing or advertising. Instead, it relied on mere word of mouth and endorsements from social media influencers such as hip hop artists Wiz Khalifa and Common.

Meanwhile, its rival Eevzdrop will soon demonstrate its upcoming iPhone voice app at the 2013 South by Southwest (SXSW), a convergence of independent films, original music and emerging tech, which will be held in Austin, Texas from 8-17 March.
