[DISCLAIMER: The following apps/websites are not endorsed nor recommended by FeBOOary. The following are merely suggestions to be used with the audio event of FeBOOary.]
Voice Recording/Social Apps
voqel – This website and app is really cool. It’s divided up into different categories for listening. Not sure on the time limit, however I’m pretty sure it’s longer than 20 minutes.
ipadio – This website & app is another really good one. You can use a phone to call to record your podcast or you can use the app to record your podcast. There is at least an hour of recording time.
soundcloud – Requires the purchase of a plan after your “free 3 hours” has expired.
Spreaker – Same as Soundcloud. Not sure on the allowed “free recording time.” However once that is expired there is a plan offered for purchase.
yourlisten – This website looks pretty good. There is NO app. It divides recordings into different categories. Not sure on the time limit. One would have to upload the files to the site verses being able to record and post like on most phone apps.

I had been trying to come up with different daily topics and hashtags to use for the times I couldn’t come up with something to talk about. Macolgan picked up the ball and ran with it. He also gave some more theme thoughts for the rest of the days of the week.
