About this app

Riffr is a social platform for micro-podcasts called riffs. Podcast are long, scripted and expensive to produce. While riffs are timely, spontaneous, thought provoking and fun! On riffr there is no long preparation, or expensive equipment needed! All you have to do is think it, record it, and share it. Riffs are immediate and conversational. Your followers will respond, and you can do the same.

Our platform is for everyone - the famous, the not so famous, and the wannabe famous! With our latest design we also made sure it’s easy to use! Just open your feed, find a topic you like and start listening to micro-podcasts. It’s that simple! And when you’ve got a story to tell or information to share just tap record and post it for your followers. But it doesn’t have to stop there! Our new sharing feature allows you to re-post your micro-podcasts to other social media platforms with just one click! We’ll convert your riff to a video, and you can share it anywhere!

Bugs and lack of users. I do love the idea of using this. It's easy to record your voice and get it out on the platform. However if you want to use the notifications when people like or reply to your voice messages, I get errors. I've emailed the app developers two times on two different issues, and after a couple weeks I still have no response. I do want to love this app, so I hope it does take off.

Yes it is difficult to catch up with only audio based social media especially when we are all surrounded by the visual content. Doesn't it point out a gap that we can not express ourselves just by our own voice without the use of any supporting material. I give five star for the idea which encourages self development, expressing abilities and authenticity. This can be cool for the one who wants to stay connected without keeping the screen on!

1. I like that the app lets you search for riffs that go beyond the intial "trial" intro without signing up. 2. The app seems blah. I didn't see a single profile photo anywhere. I'd like to see who is running a riff page, or at least a logo. 3. I like the idea that anyone can record their thoughts in a podcast-like format with just a phone and no special equipment, but I feel the app hasn't caught on well enough yet to attract content creators worth following much yet.
