Tumblr + SoundCloud = ♥
Tumblr and SoundCloud both are fantastic communities of people expressing themselves through the things they create; we think bringing them together is like a match made in heaven. So from today, we are thrilled to announce along with the fine folks from Tumblr that you can now easily share the sounds you create to Tumblr!
Here’s what we’ve made possible:
Record and share to Tumblr:
Capture any audio on-the-fly with our iPhone and Android apps and share your recordings directly to your Tumblr blog. This is super neat for impromptu interviews, commentary, breaking news, comedy or poetry - heck, pretty much anything you hear around you.
Meet Tumblr’s David at a spontaneous Tumblr meetup in Berlin? Hit the record button:
Auto-publish your new sounds and favorites:
In your advanced SoundCloud settings, you can now choose to automatically push favorites and new sounds you created to your Tumblr blog. Save time when sharing the sounds you create!
Found something on SoundCloud you like? Easily post to Tumblr by pushing the Share button on SoundCloud or grab the url and post it as an external source on Tumblr Audio posts.
Search SoundCloud on Tumblr:
When creating an audio post, you can now search, preview and post audio from SoundCloud to Tumblr.
Oh and in case you hadn’t noticed, we’re all big fans of Tumblr and a number of staffers use it every day for their personal blogs. Find out who does and follow at will!
Thank you team Tumblr for your hard work on getting this out in the wild. We can’t wait to see what happens when people capture and use sound in their everyday lives, ultimately making the web less silent.
Hunch Now Supports SoundCloud Recommendations
Hunch is a service that personalizes the web by helping you share and discover great recommendations about all sorts of topics. Basically, Hunch is creating a ‘taste graph’ of the entire web. Sounds cool? You bet it does.
Today, the fine folks over at Hunch informed us that they now support SoundCloud recommendations and here’s how it works in three steps:
1. Find something on SoundCloud you’d like to recommend, copy the URL and paste it as a recommendation on Hunch:
2. Click ‘Next’, select a category and add a short description explaining what you’re recommending and why:
3. Hit ‘Recommend’ and done. Your recommendation is now live and clicking the play button will unveil the SoundCloud player:
Make sure to also add the Bookmarklet to your brower so any time you’re on a SoundCloud page, you can recommend what you’re listening to right from the same page.
Try it out and let us know what you think in the comments. Thanks to Ben and everyone at Hunch for making this happen.
