    May 5, 2017
    SoundBYTE, which allows users to create short audio files, is somewhat like Vine, but for audio.

    SoundBYTE is a social app that allows users to record and share audio with followers around the world, 14 seconds at a time. We find out how it works from Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Dan Kearns.

    Reporting by Kexin Sun, Rachel Wise and Jessica King.

    We just want audio highlights. We don't want a long, drawn-out podcast-type thing. – Dan Kearns, CEO and Co-Founder, soundBYTE

    Additional information:


    The app is free and currently available only for iOS devices.
