The Audioburst Platform for Apps is the world’s first audio content SDK and full API library for engagement and off-screen monetization. At the heart of the platform are patent-granted and patent-pending algorithms that identify segments in each podcast episode or radio show and automatically cut hours of audio into short clips that the company calls “bursts.”
Apps that already have a player can use the Audioburst API library to add even more capabilities, such as personalized experience, keyword search (by voice or text), and a choice of any of its more than 100 content playlists.
“At Audioburst, our mission is to champion the entire podcast ecosystem, making content accessible to users while also benefiting creators and publishers,” said Amir Hirsh, co-founder and CEO of Audioburst. “With this new product launch, we are taking another step towards achieving that goal. We are bringing a wealth of content to users in their favorite apps, helping podcasts reach new audiences, and driving mobile app engagement and monetization.”
“Audioburst’s solution is a great fit for our running community,” said Bradley Duong, co-founder at Zen Labs Fitness. “Our users are already out there, trying to improve their physical well-being. Adding a dynamic feed of informative and entertaining podcast highlights helps our runners on their self-improvement journey. We expect this innovative solution to boost user engagement and significantly increase our revenues.”
Additionally, Perfect365, the Webby-award winning, augmented reality beauty platform, is incorporating Audioburst’s beauty playlist into its app to enrich user experience.
“Since we launched Perfect365, our priority has been to continually integrate the best technology to serve our 100 million users,” said Vincent Hsu, VP Business Development for Perfect365. “With Audioburst, our audience now has the added benefit of audio content. What’s more, our users don’t need to leave the Perfect365 app to receive relevant and timely beauty tips from the hottest beauty podcasts.”
