Fotobabble Turns BILLIONS of Photos into TALKING OnesThere are tens of billions of static photos on the web, all without a voice or a sound. The Fotobabble guys think that's a crying shame.
Within seconds, you can voice-enable any photo -- on a PC, a Mac or your iPhone and instantaneously send out via Facebook, Twitter, email and more. MEET Fotobabble and be prepared to have some fun.
Client Fotobabble went live this morning which means you can try it out in a number of different situations. For example:
*How cool and fun would it be to have talking photo status updates within Twitter and Facebook?
*You can use Fotobabble to add life to photos you upload on Facebook – at home or while you’re on the road traveling.

*Snap a picture and add your voice to tell your spouse about the perfect couch for the living room you just saw.
*Include your voice to a greeting card to give it personality and life.

*You could add voice to images to provide instant scoop from a local news or sporting event.
*Imagine being on a safari and sending a photo to a friend - captioned with your voice - that truly captures the excitement you felt the moment you first saw a lion?

Oh oh - alas I am the quintessential exponent of the saying 'ask him the time and he will build you a clock' so already I have been putting fotobabble through its paces and am loving every minute of it.
The ability to Humanise pictures is fantastic - to put them into context and give some small vignette-indicator of the the mind behind the shutter is brilliant.
I look forward to continuing to championing something so simple elegant and highly relevant
