Hey everyone, I’m here for Next In Tech. Thank you so much for watching this video. We are going to review the app called Raur. Now let me give you a little bit of background information on this app. They were founded in 2012. The company is called Instaradio. And they were founded in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The app is basically a way to let you record and be live via audio to your Twitter feed, to your Facebook feed and it saves the audio to your profile so people can play it back and listen to what you have in case they missed your live broadcast. Now I discovered this app via Twitter by Will Sasso who is from MadTV if you know who he is. You’ve seen him in other movies. He was doing a live alternate broadcast to one of the WWE Pay-Per-Views providing commentary which I thought was a really cool idea. So I listened to it and the sound quality was pretty cool, so I decided to check out the app and the app is available via the App Store for your iPhones and Google Play for your Android phones. Now I have an Android but as you can see on the screen we have an iPhone and it’s an easy setup to to sign up. You go to the app, you sign up with your Twitter or your Facebook account and then you’re ready to go. Now, I’m gonna walk through it with you just real fast so you guys know it’s a little bit different on my screen because I have an Android but what you’re seeing is an Apple iPhone screen. But when you’re ready to record, a screen pops up and you’re able to click either Facebook or Twitter or both if you want to record to both. And, we’re gonna do that now and you can attach a photo to your broadcast which is cool. So if your talking about sports, like the Stanley Cup Finals are going on right now. You can post a picture of Steven Stamkos or Patrick Kane if you like either of those players. And then you can pick a tag of what your broadcast is going to be about. So of course, this broadcast is going to be about sports. So you click the soccer ball. For me it’s a soccer ball. And then you’re able to write what you want to talk about and then go live. So I’m gonna do that here. I’m going to go live. And it’s easy. It’s simple. It’s as simple as just clicking a button and the audio quality is pretty good. I guess it depends on the mic you’re using on your phone because I’m sure the mics are a little bit different for each phone. Especially there’s lower grade phones out there that Android puts out. It’s easy. It’s one of the easiest things to do. Usually when you record and broadcast or you’re doing live streams or something like that you have to put all this information for the codec or IP addresses and servers but this makes it so much easier to do for a simple person who doesn’t have access to any audio quality recording on live equipment. I’m gonna go live and let’s see, um, sports, review of Raur. And I’m gonna go live. And just like that. And I am recording live. So you see it on my screen too. I’m recording live. People can hear me on Twitter right now and there’s not much else to it. It’s simple. It’s really simple. There’s no advanced features. There’s no video. I mean there’s alternatives out there like Periscope where you can do video. For me I think this is cool for someone starting out in case their quality of video is not good because like I said there’s lower grade phones out there where the video is still kind of iffy unless you spend money on a Galaxy or an iPhone where the video is great. So this is a good alternative to having the capability to record live which is pretty cool. And if you’re shy and you don’t want to be on video you have the audio capabilities. So I’m going to stop broadcasting and right there on my feed, you can listen to it. And it’s as easy as that guys. Social media is big these days. And people are getting their information from social media instead of news websites now so it’s really cool and anyone can use it. You can be just a person like I said, talking, and want to talk to your friends and just talk about whatever video games or you could be a professional broadcaster that you want to record from the street like something’s going on. There’s a protest or an accident and you want to talk about it, you can do that. Like I said there’s alternatives out there. Periscope and things like that where you can broadcast video to your social followers. But it’s good to have alternatives to broadcast live and you can broadcast with audio. Now for me, I like that app. I think the app is cool. It’s very easy to use. It’s like I said, it’s very simple and you can click through it and get to where you need to be and record what you need. But at the same time like I said there’s alternatives so I feel like this is a step in the right direction. But it looks like the marketplace is probably going to go towards the video side of broadcasting. But like I said we’re here to review the app and I think the app is great. I give them two thumbs up. I would like to see more advanced features, be able to download the audio and you know, if you don’t want to go to the app and you want to keep the audio of say your favorite artist, like a live broadcast of them playing acoustic guitar and you want that audio, you should be able to download it if you want and so I feel like you know, having a chance to download the audio would be good. You can share it to your Facebook, share it to Twitter, share it on email and other things. But a download option would be pretty cool I think. But other than that, I don’t see anything wrong with it, they’re still building it. You know, it’s a work in progress for sure but it’s simple. Simple to use and I feel like anyone who wants to broadcast who don’t want to use video should use this. Like I said you can get this on the Apple App Store and you can get it on the Google Play Store and yeah. So that’s my review for Raur. Like, comment, subscribe.
