Trade In Mobile For Chance To Update Social Networks By Voice

Consumers who choose to trade in their mobiles and switch to one of the latest Nokia phones will be able to update their status on social networking sites in a unique way.

Adam, author of an article for Nokia Conversations, explained the AudioBoo app allows people to use voice clips rather than text when adding their latest comments to Facebook or Twitter.

"If you're into tapping away at your on-screen keypad to update your status on Facebook or Twitter, then imagine a world where you didn't actually have to type, but could simply speak," he noted.

As well as adding sound clips to a status, AudioBoo also has location software so can offer an update on where a user is at any time.

Adam pointed out another advantage of the app is that it is not subject to the same character restrictions as text statuses on Twitter.

Another app to hit the headlines this week is Double Dragon, with an iPhone version of the popular game now available.
