SoundCloud is an audio sharing service that works sort of like YouTube for audio. You can upload and share audio clips and discovery sounds shared by other users, including music performances, speeches, bird calls… whatever. A few weeks ago the company launched an iOS app that lets you record, share, and discover audio on a mobile device. Now SoundCloud is also available for Android.

Unfortunately, as Mashable points out, the Android app seems to lack some of the features available for iPhone users. There’s no automatic geolocation feature. You can’t add comments. And you can’t easily share recordings with your Facebook and Twitter friends. The Android app also has a five minute limit on recordings.

That said, it looks like SoundCloud expects to offer more features in future releases, so there’s still hope that the Android app can catch up to its iPhone sibling.

The SoundCloud app for Android is available as a free download from the Android Market.
