Cell Phone to Podcast Tools



me on the iphoneI’ve been looking into mobile podcasting tools, specifically services that allow you to post podcasts to a blog from your cell phone. Here’s a list of tools I’ve found that do this:

  • Gcast – run by the people behind GarageBand (I actually have some scary bad songs somewhere on GarageBand)
  • TalkShoe – seems to do this and a whole lot more
  • Hipcast – upload files up to 250 MB in size
  • Yodio – don’t know much about this service
  • Gabcast – 200 MB per user for the free account, and 1 hour per recording
  • Jott – Not sure if Jott does quite the same thing, but I’m including them anyway. Jott allows you to record a message to voicemail, then it can email it out to whoever (and most bloggers can set up an “email to post” email account, which would work)

Anyone use any of these tools? Is there another one I should add to the list? Thanks!

    I use TalkShoe for this little show I run called Uncontrolled Vocabulary. People do use cell phones to call in and participate, but I’ve never run the live show from a cell phone.

    That said, lots of people do use it via cell phone, both for scheduled shows and impromptu community calls.

    We have been using Gabcast for Project Play here in Wisconsin. It’s very easy to use, and we haven’t had any problems with the free storage space being too small. The conference call feature isn’t that great, as the time allowed for the podcast gets shorter and shorter the more people you add to the call. BUT we have used a free conference call site to gather and then call Gabcast from there and that worked great. I have also used Gabcast to do brief on the fly interviews over my cell phone, which worked fine, but the sound quality wasn’t outstanding.

    Just signed up for GCast, and am testing it out right now. The quality actually sounds better than voicemail, especially if you make the call from a quiet place. Will see how it goes. Thanks for this list!

    We actually used gcast at our school for Spanish students to record themselves speaking Spanish so the teachers could grade them on their pronunciation. Unfortunately, they now charge $99 annually for phone recording, so I was happy to see that you have found other sites that offer this capability!
