New Twitchr

I’m just putting the finishing touches to new Twitchr. The big change is that we have added the ability to upload your own recordings of bird sounds using Audioboo. You just have to add the tag ‘twitchr’ to your Audioboo upload. These sounds are then played on the map with the music box notes. While making these changes, I’ve really enjoyed listening to the soundscapes that emerge from the map and I have kept the map playing in the background while developing other areas of the site.

This version of Twitchr uses version 3 of the Google Maps API. The old version used version 2. It also uses the most recent versions of jQuery and SoundManager.

The previous version of Twitchr is still online, but I have deactivated the upload form.

    The new version is great – I’ve been uploading birdsong recordings, with images whenever I have one of the same bird and location too.
