On May 7th, 2012 we released the first version of our Voices.com iOS App.
The Voices.com iOS App was designed to give talent the opportunity to audition for jobs while on the go, even record an audition with the built in microphone, and clients the ability to review auditions, search the directory, and hire talent right from their mobile device.
Several iterations later, and after exhaustive testing, we're pleased to announce some changes that we know you'll be happy about too!
Do you use our iOS app?
Join VOX Daily to learn what you can expect with the upcoming release of the newest version of the Voices.com App for your Apple mobile device.
By far, the most significant change is that you will now have the ability to share files created in GarageBand with the Voices.com App. Recording in GarageBand first will provide you with the opportunity to use its sophisticated editing capabilities and then share that file with the Voices.com App.
Once you've completed recording your M4A file in GarageBand, it will automatically be converted into a compatible file for the Voices.com App and sent to the Voices.com App Files area. From there you can either attach it as an audition for a job or you can add it to the Demo area on your Profile.
We've made the app stronger! With previous versions there was an issue with it crashing after sending a certain number of auditions. Our app developer has made significant changes to improve the App's reliability, particularly when saving and converting audio files.
We've updated the look and feel of the app overall, with special attention to the new play and record buttons, so that it will have a cleaner visual appearance with its flat design.
If you've never used the Voices.com iOS App before, you're in for a treat!
In addition to clients being able to use it for searching, auditioning, and hiring voice talent straight from the app, talent are also provided with all the tools and features of their Voices.com account and have with the added ability to record auditions right from the app.
Best of all, it's free!
Once you've downloaded the app from the iTunes Store, Premium and Platinum members can access their accounts from the Voices.com App just by signing in.
If you're new to Voices.com, you can create your account directly from the app and you will be able to access it both on your mobile device and on your personal computer.
After a final round of testing for quality assurance, we will be submitting the updates to the Apple App Store early next week. It usually takes one to two weeks to get the green light from Apple.
The updates are optimized for the iOS 7 and preparations are already in place to make it compatible with the upcoming Fall release of iOS 8. The Voices.com App, version 2.9, will be available on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
Keep an eye out on iTunes over the next couple weeks so you can download the newest updates to the Voices.com iOS App.
All the best,
