What is it? Talkee allows you to add a voiceover to an image, for sharing on social media.
How is it of use to journalists? This quirky app will be useful to journalists looking to visually promote their stories online, in a fun and engaging way.
Those reporting from events or simply wanting to add a bit of context to their photographs will find this app helpful and very easy to use due to its simple interface.
Journalists can either import a photo from their camera roll or take a new one by pressing the red 'talkee' button. Once the button has been pressed, the app also starts recording the voiceover.
Journalists will see a waveform appear on the screen as they record.
Once finished, the recording can be stopped by pressing the red button again – this will also start the automatic syncing of the image and audio track.
Talkees can be managed within the app's gallery, saved to the phone, or exported via text message, email, uploaded to the cloud or exported to Facebook. The app leaves a small watermark in the lower right corner of the app.
