I love the idea of this, at least the idea that lots of sound artists could take it and turn it into something very different from what it is meant to be. I’m going to give it a go myself and start leaving sounds around London soon, so if you are using it, or start to use it, please let me know.
Here’s the app’s description from the store:
Recho lets you record a sound and stitch it to where it was recorded. Your recording is now available for everyone, but to listen they have to be at that exact place.
Use Recho for stories, guides, poetry, games, tips and secrets. Your recordings on Recho will stay at its place forever, so future listeners can hear the echoes of the past.
What’s New in Version 2.0
Recho 2.0 is here! All essential features for the full Recho experience are finally integrated.
You are now able to create rechoes that only selected friends can listen to. Great for your personal recordings.
New recording flow
Recording gets a big update, where you are prompted to share and recommend your content before placing it in the world.
Social media shares
You can recommend a recho to both facebook and twitter. The more active users, the more fun.
We have updated the categories to more compelling descriptions. Hope you find them inspiring.
There are a series of improvements all over the app.
- Walk to a specific recho you selected, with a distance counter.
- Swipe between panels in menus.
- Log in without email verification.
- Learn with a new tutorial.
- Overall design improvements.
Recho is free at the app store:
Here’s what’s new in Noisepad:

- Fixed AudioCopy/Paste
- Updated in-app icons

I still love this. Loads. The concept and execution are amazing.
“Built around a few of samples that sound like a transformer going nuts, this soundpack still has a funky groove. Hence: FunkFormer. Have fun with this soundpack, and If you want, envision a funky transformer dancing. – Alex

This is so sad. I’ve been a big fan of Lucky Frame from their very first app onwards and I’m so sorry to see them go now. Their initial experiment in music was brilliant, and I’m still very fond of Mujic which was, to say the least, innovative and a beautiful.
I also really appreciated their games, which were excellent too. My favourite being Wave Trip which I still play occasionally and is one of the best music based games I know.
So whilst I can appreciate the reasons they’ve given in this statement it’s still a big shame and a I will miss their work. I wish them all the best and hope that one day they might release something musical again.
All the best Lucky Frame, thanks for all your hard work and innovation. It was fun
