Chirp is an incredible new way to share your stuff – using sound. Chirp sings information from one iPhone to another.
Online service Chirp transmits an actual chirp and compatible devices will respond by downloading content from the Internet.
The app uses special electronic birdsong to ‘chirp’ information over the air to your friends. Every chirp is a little song that links to anything you want to share.
At the moment users are limited to sending pictures, website links or 140-character text messages. Besides, the app is free to use, only companies will be charges a fee for add-on services.It doesn’t matter if the recipient is offline, because the device will remember the “chirp” and download associated content later.
The software was developed by Animal Systems, which was spun off from the University College London. The service is currently free, although Animal will charge licensing fees to businesses that wish to develop over Chirp.
