How does the web app look and feel to use?

The web is simple to use. It allows users to upload and share sound bites in a three-click process. The user chooses to 'follow' certain other users in a Twitter-like style. The messages of the followed users are then combined into a single radio stream. Part of the ease of use stems from the fact that the user can carry out social networking while jogging, driving, or performing other activities that involve your hands.

How does the registration process work?

Registration can be done through your Twitter or Facebook account. It is also possible to register through your standard e-mail account. To do so, the app will ask you to fill in your name, e-mail address, user name, real name and other information. Registration is free of charge and takes effect immediately.

What does it cost to use the application?

The application is entirely free.

Who would you recommend the application to?

The application is great for people who like social networking but also would like to multitask. The main advantage of Hubbub is that it allows you to carry out your social networking while you are doing activities that require the use of your hands, such as driving. It's a potential time saver.
