New App Lets Users Add Voice to Pictures

MD Design this week released SpeakingPhoto, an iOS 6.0-compatible mobile app that lets users enhance and personalize their pictures by instantly annotating photos with voice-overs. Speaking photos can immediately be shared to Facebook, YouTube, or via email.

"SpeakingPhoto grew out of desire to capture the sweet and fleeting sound of children's voices, something home videos tend to diminish," said MD Design Founding Partner and CEO Dawn Davis in a statement. "From there, we realized that capturing stories and the emotions behind them was extremely meaningful. It quickly became apparent that this app can be used in many creative, fun, and compelling ways by people all over the world."

SpeakingPhoto is available in the iTunes App Store in three versions:

  • SpeakingPhoto Lite: An introductory free version that allows anyone use the basic SHOOT, SPEAK, and SHARE features. They can then upgrade to one of the premium versions for added features.
  • SpeakingPhoto for iPhone: For 99 cents, users can take photos and add their personal recordings. Additional features included are "Speaking" on all existing photos archived on camera rolls, as well as the ability to tell a more complete story by combining up to five speaking photos in a slide show.
  • SpeakingPhoto for iPad: For $2.99, users have the full SpeakingPhoto experience, designed and scaled for iPad.
