I'm working on a mobile app to clip segments from podcast episodes and share them with friends. It's called Soundbite.
I'm doing this because I noticed that I have clunky workarounds to keep track of interesting clips when listening to podcasts. I want to simplify the process of keeping track of useful things I learned, and to have better discussions with friends.
A soundbite of an episode would look like this:
When you listen to an episode and hear something interesting, you can screenshot your current position and share it with Soundbite. Soundbite will convert your screenshot into an audio clip and an editable transcript that you can revisit later and share with friends.
Soundbite will work alongside the app you already use to listen to podcasts, so you don't have to switch.
In the future, Soundbite could surface the most popular soundbites from an episode. Podcast listeners could preview soundbites to discover new podcasts that match their interests. Podcast creators could use these soundbites to see which parts their audience liked the most.
If you're interested, let me know.
