CHENGDU, China, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Camera360, one of the most used camera apps in the world, has launched a new and compelling feature of their popular app -- the Audio Camera. Camera360 has been the focus of much success lately, including being named as the No.2 Best Startup at the 2013 Fortune Global Forum and achieving a user base of over 120 million people from across the globe.
With many smartphones now containing audio capture technology, the Audio Camera tool will help add to all of the emotion and drama that is captured using the Camera360 app. The new feature enables users to record and collect the final 5 seconds of sound before a picture is taken and save it along with the image. To prevent additional audio files being saved alongside the actual photo, everything is compressed into one JPEG file, saving plenty of space and memory on the smartphone or tablet.
By capturing these few seconds of sounds, it will enable users to capture the essence and emotions of a moment that can be remembered for eternity. This is explained by Camera360 president Hao Xu, who said that "with the launch of Audio Camera, Camera360 will help you truly restore the moment and emotion of precious occasions such as when your girlfriend says 'Yes, I do!' at that magic moment and also when your classmates say 'Cheese' when you graduate from university."
Despite the introduction of Audio Camera, users can still use the Camera360 app to share all their favourite moments with the world with just one or two clicks. As both the image and sound can be found in just the one file, the audio photo can be uploaded directly from Camera360 to social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter and Flickr and shared with friends and family. For those wanting a safe place to store all their pictures, they can head to cloud.camera360.com where images taken by Camera360 can be stored to form a collection of all their social and personal highlights in the near future, according to Camera360's announced product plans.
Camera360, owned by Chengdu Pinguo Technology Co., Ltd, is a worldwide leader in photo applications on iOS and Android devices. Based in Chengdu, China, and founded by a team with over twenty years' experience in digital image processing and research, Camera360 has already achieved global recognition and won numerous awards, including at the Fortune Global Forum 2013 and 2011 PC World Global Tech Forum. Today, Camera360 boasts over 120 million global users, with nearly half of its user base coming from outside of China.
The creators of Camera360 have also launched Movie360, an award-winning video recording application, and cloud.camera360.com, a cloud-based service platform that allows users to easily upload, manage and share photos and other multimedia. Since its launch in September 2012, the cloud platform has already seen over 300 million photos uploaded from around the world and is quickly becoming a leader in multimedia cloud storage.
