A real-time communication and information network that connects you with current stories, ideas, opinions, and news. This knowledge is communicated through audio clips of 30 seconds or less with the option of attaching a picture to the audio clip.
Information is transmitted from each user through public audio clips called Shouts. Each Shout has a limit of 30 seconds. Although it seems short, it is quite amazing how much emotion and information can be communicated in such a short time.
Shout to listeners. Whisper to friends. Listen to the world.
