Do you fancy multimedia content that goes beyond what you already get from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and other social networks? You’ve come to the right place. Talpic, an app available on both Android and iOS devices, is a media sharing social service which allows you to browse images and audio posts publicly shared by other app users. And, of course, it also gives you the opportunity to go public and share your own posts with others over Facebook, SinaWeibo, or email.

Aside from allowing you to explore thousands of shared images, Talpic also has the ability to embed an audio recording to a certain shared photo. Say, if you wish to record your own voice while singing, but don’t want your own photo to be displayed, then you always have the choice to select a different photo and have your voice embedded in the image.

It’s basically your call. If you’re creative enough, you might end up producing something that is far from what’s ordinary. Talpic would be of great help for that.

Like most social networks, you don’t really need to log in to the app for you to view publicly shared photos. You will only be asked to log in to the app if you wish to share some photos. A valid Talpic ID is needed for this, but you don’t have to worry. Everything is free, and a personal account may be requested within the app. You may find it a hassle on your part, but rest assured that when you’re successfully logged in to Talpic, you’ll be able to fully enjoy its features.

Logging in to Talpic would mean that you’re no longer limited to just sharing photos with others. This time you’ll have the chance to monitor the activity that is happening within your account.

To fully give you the feeling of being a part of a wider avenue of communication, Talpic allows you to have a video recording introducing yourself to everyone. This video shall then be played on your Talpic profile page.

The app has its Listen & View, Share Sound, and Share Pix features which are located on the app’s homescreen for easy navigation. Together, they make for a whole new unique way of embedding audio recording in the photos you wish to share.

There’s really no limit to the length of the audio message that you want to record. All you have to do is to select your photo, embed a recording of your choice, and provide a title of the file. You can also choose if you want to show it publicly or privately. Then it’s your turn to decide whether or not you would like to show your post to other people or have it kept on your private account.

The app also provides you various tabs which allow you to simultaneously shift from audio and photo content on the same screen. Moreover, you can filter the content of your favorite list by checking on the latest trends and most popular posts.

You can follow other app users that you want, and you can like or comment on their posts. Audio contents can also be downloaded, and can be played back as many times as you like.

So, if you’re currently feeling the stress of being deprived by the vast opportunities that you’re missing in the multimedia world, then Talpic will alleviate that concern.
