A friend  who is an avid traveler just sent a link to a new phone app that I predict will give “legs” to travel stories.  This new phone app, called Broadcastr, is currently in Beta testing but promises to be an exciting social media technology.

IPhone and Android users can download the free app to record place-based stories. Imagine having the tool to record your most exciting adventures, your funniest anecdotes, your favorite museum tour, an oral history, or whatever your imagination can invent, just as it’s happening.  Your story will be linked to a map and accessible to anyone you want to hear it.

Imagine taking this little gem on a wine tasting tour to share your experience as it’s happening and record your impressions of the wines you’re tasting and the wineries you visit!

By the way, if you’re looking for a phone app to help you rate and remember the wines you enjoy while you’re visiting wineries, check out “5 Must-Have iPhone Apps for Wine Lovers.”

P.S. If you’d like to hear a tale from the early days at J. Walter Thompson or adventures of playing ball in Washington Heights, search on “Peter Eder” to hear several tales told by the friend who tipped me off on this app.
