Sharing is caring.
Review based on use with iPads 2&3
Developed by: Jonatan Liljedahl
If you make music using iOS devices and apps,
you know how important it is to be
able to move sounds around in your various music apps without complication.
Having the ability to have them categorized and stored in a single place and
quickly move them around has not been much of a one stop option until Audio
AudioShare is not just a middle man for transferring audio
files; forever constrained to audio copy/paste. Yes, it supports audio
copy/paste in both Sonoma and General Pasteboard, inbound and outbound. It also
supports all the other current methods of transferring audio files (except
inbound from SoundCloud) beyond just ACP. Upload to SoundCloud, DropBox, Open In, email, iTunes File Sharing and planned support for AudioBus, AudioShare
covers the sharing options very well.

Sharing so smoothly is just half of it. It is a very convenient tool for
managing all those recordings that are (or were?) saved in individual music
apps. Now with Audio Share you can take all those recordings and create your own
audio library. All contained neatly in this one easily accessible app. Files
& categories can be named, renamed, and moved. Piece of cake.
AudioShare also has the ability to record sounds via device or external
microphone. All audio files can be played back displaying the waveform in a
window on-screen. You can manipulate the cursor by touch to rewind or move the
audio forward. It doesn’t scrub, and you can’t edit anything, but that’s not
what this app is about. Audio Share is all about making it easy and fast to
store, organize, and move sounds between compatible music apps. It’s all done in
a neat, single screen interface. No clutter, entirely intuitive, and…I wish I
had this last year. So simple it hurts.
AudiShare only has limitations
imposed upon it. Limits are not created by the app itself. Such as: the list of
files available on the pasteboard is limited to 12 most recently copied sounds,
and “Open In” will display only up to about 10 apps. That’s problem for anyone
with more than 10 music apps. Which is probably nearly everyone.
Apple is to
blame for these limitations. Hopefully Apple will hear the cries of all the
developers and we end users soon, and lift these restrictions.
I can’t speak for everyone, but I’m relieved to finally have AudioShare. No more
trying to remember what recordings are in which app. We finally have a single
app; a digital audio library to manage our iOS music sounds in a super clean,
easy to use application that just plain works!
If you make music with an
iDevice, you need this app. It just makes sense.
