One small thingg: Anchor is in a similar space but have been referencing their audio sounds as waves.... now you are also calling them waves. Perhaps it would be best to call them something else as not to muddy the lines.

@bentossell Can I just say when Anchor first launched on here I laughed so hard. The fact that they were audio based, water themed, and called their audio clips "waves" amazed me. I'll definitely look into it, but I'd hate to lose the term as it's a fun thing that is very much spread throughout the app.

@darren_terpstra why did you laugh? and why did that amaze you? seems that is similar to what has happened here with currently

@bentossell Just a "what are the chances" moment. I've been working on this for 2 years (give or take) when Anchor came out, for clarification. It's not like I whipped this up last month :P

@bentossell perhaps the app could send users "Currents", as in What's Current? That's the thing with project ideas ay? It's usually not how long we've been thinking about doing something; but more how quickly are people actually doing that same thing.

It's another nice idea. However, Anchor has already established itself and I find it nearly impossible for Currently to surf that wave now (pun intended). :)

Currently allows you to speak into your phone for up to a minute, recording a funny story or life update. It then sends that audio clip (called a wave) to those you allow to follow you.

This means that you can listen to your friends' stories like a playlist, all in their own voices. Like having a mini podcast of your friends' lives.

You get to choose whether you make your wave (audio clip) public, or private. You can even share it to your Facebook or Twitter profile with the click of a button.

Also, you can save a friend's wave to your phone in case you want to listen to it later. You can also reply back to a friend (only they receive it) reminiscing about the good ol' days.

The app is free and I really hope you'll enjoy sharing short audio stories with your friends. So please, download the app today and let us know what you think :)
