First App to Broadcast 30-Second Voice Recordings on Social Networks Launches on iOS and Android

Leveraging the Power of Voice, Vobok Is the First Platform Allowing Users to Send 30-Second Sound Bites of Their Own Voice to Friends, Family, Twitter and Facebook

MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - The first app to let you broadcast your voice in 30 second bites to all of your social networks, Vobok (www.vobok.com), is now available for free download in the App Store (http://bit.ly/10WxrjQ) and on Google Play (http://bit.ly/10oxxEI). Built on its own social network, Vobok lets users post their brief recordings -- called Voboks -- within the app's feed, as well as to Twitter or Facebook. Users can also send private voice messages directly to friends and family, attach trending topics and images with Voboks to make posts more dynamic.

From texting to tweets, communication today can be a flat experience. Images and videos help, but until Vobok, no other service has leveraged one of the most basic and powerful components of social media communication -- voice. Featuring tap-to-talk and tap-to-listen capabilities, Vobok makes it easier than ever before to discover what your friends are up to, explore what people are talking about, and connect with friends, personalities, music, and businesses that matter to you. For personalities such as news anchors, comedians, politicians, and celebrities, Vobok provides a powerful broadcasting platform for sharing their thoughts and information in a simple and instant way using their own voice.

"In recent years, attention spans have decreased to the point where people don't want to spend more than 30 seconds listening to or watching updates, even on information that they care about," said Priyam Parikh, architect of Vobok, and founder and CEO of Vobok Inc. "Just like Twitter introduced 140 characters for concise social media updates, Vobok introduces 30 second sound bites. From hearing the latest news in 30 seconds or less to safely sending a friend a message while driving, Vobok plans to be the voice of Twitter and Facebook in the new age of communication."
