Cinch is a mobile app that lets you record audio on your phone and share it with the world in a matter of seconds. The app has been available for the iPhone for a while, and today Cinch released an Android app.

I took Cinch for a spin this afternoon, and while it’s not something I would use for complex audio projects, it’s incredibly simple to use. Basically you hit the record button, then hit the publish button, and your audio will be posted online. You can link your Cinch account to your Facebook and/or Twitter accounts to share your latest audio posts with your contacts. Or you can just create a Cinch account and provide people with links to your audio on the web.

There’s a sort of social networking aspect of Cinch too. You can subscribe to other Cinch users’ feeds and find their latest updates either on the web or using the mobile client. Or you could just push the big orange RSS button on any users page and susbcribe in a podcatcher or RSS reader.

You can also embed audio uploaded to Cinch on a web site or download audio from the site so you can listen offline. I’ve embedded a test recording I made this afternoon after the break, along with a few more screenshots.

Cinch is available as a free download from the Android Market. You can also grab the iPhone version for free from the App Store.
