Social audio platform Audioboo has announced that it’s rebranding as AudioBoom, as it lifts the lid on an all-new iOS app too.

Launched in March 2009, Audioboo(M) lets you record audio snippets, which they can share with friends or broadcast to the world. They can also add images, titles and tags and upload it to the Web, complete with biographical and geographical information on where and when it was recorded. AudioBoom counts some well-known publishers among its users, including The Guardian, BBC and the Telegraph, while Stephen Fry is a bit of a fan too.

Alongside the rebrand, AudioBoom has introduced a refreshed iOS app (Android still to come), which sports a new UI, swipe-based navigation, a custom-built recommendations engine that improves over time, offline mode and more. As before, you can still record and edit directly from the app too.
