Chirp is a way to share stuff using sound.
1. Open the app – Chirp is listening!
2. Make sure the sound on your computer is on
3. Press the big yellow button below.You will hear a chirping sound.
The picture above should appear on your phone. Didn’t hear anything? Turn the volume up a little on your computer, and press the big yellow button again. That should do it.
Get close to the person you want to chirp something to — a few feet away is fine. You and your friend need to both be running the application for it to work. Press the big yellow ‘chirp’ button. A little chirping sound will be heard. Bingo! Whatever you chirped them will appear on their phone. That’s it.
Now you can make 6-second videos with Chirp.
Simply tap on the big [+] button and select Make a video
Just touch and hold down on the active camera screen to record. If you’d like to add a cut, just let go of your finger. Easy.
Add as many cuts as you want – use your creativity! You can flip the camera round for selfies by tapping on the flip button (second right at top) turn the flash or mic on and off here too.
Finished recording? Tap the tick button to preview it. Enter a name for your clip in the text field above, if you like.
Hit the tick again – you’re good to go!
Sharing is caring, like they say. If you’d like to share a chirp you just made simply hit the […] button in the bottom right corner of the chirp card. Hit Share and you’re good to go on your favorite social platform…
Try standing nearer, or holding your phones closer. If you’re in a noisy place, then the chirp might not get heard.
It works better if you’re close to the sound in a fairly quiet place, and it doesn’t work at all if you’re a long way away in noisy place.
