A New Social Network Surfaces, This One Tuning in on Sound

By: BostInno

Matteo Alampi, DMSB'17, has created Sonical, a networking app that is about sharing sound. What makes it different from other social apps? As an example, Alampi says, "Twitter is just not that deep. If you're at a café, you can record the sound of someone pouring coffee, or tapping on their computer. … There's just a lot more depth to it." The app is intended to create richer experiences. Alampi was able to build and launch the app with the help of IDEA: Northeastern's venture accelerator.
