According to Edison Research in 2012, about one in five smart phone owners are podcast listeners and more than half of them use social networks nearly everyday. Ironically, there aren't any applications that allows podcast listeners to share their podcasts through social networks, given that they are much more likely to use social networks than the general U.S. population.
To address this, we decided to build an iOS App called QuoteIt, which allows users to capture inspirational quotes from their podcasts and share it through their social networks. QuoteIt plays podcasts like any other podcast player; however, it’s differentiated in one unique way. With the simple click of a button, QuoteIt records the clip that the users just heard, transforms it into text, and presents it as text. Users can then choose the exact part of the text they wish to share!
