What people are saying about Sound Byte:

We have an Internet Radio Station and have been on the air for over two years. We air a “Live Call In Program” on Wednesday nights and yesterday was the first night we used Sound Byte and it worked without a hitch… SUPER Product!
- Wes

Thanks to Black Cat Systems, the best part of the cart idea is back again and in a digital audio format that makes it a must for anyone in theater, radio or recording. It’s awesome! All the sounds you need, right at your fingertips.
- Joey Stuckey, award-winning guitarist, songwriter, singer, composer, producer, radio personality, teacher, and sound engineer.

LOVE the app, worth EVERY penny and would have easily paid more for it. Kills any other live radio app we’ve used. Even the bloated several hundred dollar apps… Love it love it love it. Thanks again!
- JMack

This program is quicker and more user friendly than any hardware based unit out there. I use this program EVERYDAY while mixing network television and could not work without it. Thank you for a great product.
- Randy P.

I like this Sound Byte thing a lot! It’s pretty nice stuff. I can play any files no matter where they are, even if they are on a different hard drive. Nice!
- Fred C.

After using your software for our hockey games the parents stuck running the music are very pleased on how easy this program made our job simpler.
- Guy W.

I love Sound Byte, I use it on my radio show every morning and everyone is blown away at how I can whip the pants off anyone using one of those hardware based units.
- Scott P.

I just wanted to say, WOW, Sound Byte is truly an awesome program. I love the simplicity, instant response, and the compatabilty with every sound file I can think of. I never buy software, but I bought this within minutes of trying it out.
- Jeffrey H.

I sure love SoundByte.
I run the music for some of our local minor hockey teams and it works famously.
I have had several people ask me about it and they are really impressed when
I tell them about the free trial and the very reasonable registration cost.
Thanks for making such an excellent product.

- Trevor G.

I love the product. I host a morning news/talk show in Lansing Michigan.
I’ve always used a lot of audio, but my studio producer had to insert the audio
which is a coordination issue (especially with drop-ins, quick sound bytes etc.).
Now I have total control over audio.

- Walter S.

Your program has made running sound cues in our little non-profit theatre very easy.

For the money, there is nothing out there that compares.

Thank you for keeping it affordable!

- Mark C.

your word of mouth marketing!
Create custom apps for all of your clients!

So simple – Your Grandmother could use it!

“Even though I have just started using MyPhotoApp it is already bringing big dividends with my clients. One client showed it off to a friend and the friend called to book the next day. This will be another tool that will fit very well in my marketing.” — David Quisenberry, Images That Speak, McKinney Texas

“I’m glad i took the time to check out what you’re all about, cause now I am a fan for life and absolutely love! I have seen others even tried them but the ease and i’ll admit the pricing too totally hooked me!I I already made 3 Apps and the clients loved them!” — Adita Perez, Adita’s Photography, New Jersey

How to build a custom app in less than 2 minutes! Really!

This is a short 2 minute movie showing how easy and quickly one can create an iPhone application from scratch.

Using the app on an iPhone

A short movie showing you how to install and use the app on an iPhone. iPad and iPod usage and installation are identical. Android usage is the same, but the install is a little bit different.

How to integrate Pro Select with

This video was provided by one of our users, Arjen Eeken, and shows how easy it is to integrate MyPhotoApp with Pro Select.

Click to Developer’s Site for more info.

Highlights include:

  • You can create all the apps you want — no limit.
  • 30 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee. We only want happy customers! We want to give you time to see if this works for your business. Give this an honest effort of creating apps and putting them into your clients hands and watch your referrals increase. Just one new client should easily will pay for your subscription!
  • Usage Statistics – See how many times your apps have been installed and how many times they have been viewed.
  • Works On iPhone, iPad, iPod and Android mobile devices.

Everyone knows that word of mouth marketing is the best. You get well qualified clients. It is not enough to just create a remarkable service where people are willing to refer you. The problem is how to keep reminding your clients to refer people to you without nagging them.

MyPhotoApp is the perfect referral enabling solution.

iPhone usage is skyrocketing. It is normal for our clients to have an iPhone… especially the more affluent ones who have disposable income to spend on things
like photography. When people get together it is usual for people to use their iPhones often to check on mail, text, answer the phone, etc. Having their own personal icon on their iPhone is a constant reminder of your photography business and a very natural conversation starter “Hey look at this cool personal app my photographer created for me! They ROCK!!!” .

Another scenario is that during a conversation, photography comes up. Your clients will have all the marketing collateral they need right there in their handy iPhone. You can even include special offers that your clients can share with their friends. James Cook Photography includes a coupon for a “free iPhone” app in every app they distribute. This is a low cost, high value incentive for people to book you. They want to be cool too and have their own iPhone app.

How MyPhotoApp can benefit your business…

There are several reasons why MyPhotoApp apps are wow items. First, it is very practical. People like to have pictures on their phones. Everyone has pictures on their phone because they are easy to store there. Finding pictures they want to share is usually a several minute task at least. With MyPhotoApp, their (your) pictures are only an icon push away. Second, there is the vanity factor. Who else has their very own icon on their phone? Not many. So your clients feel special and cool, especially when they are around friends.

The uses in your business are limitless. Here are some common ones…

  • Giving free apps to everyone of your clients has a hugh impact on your referral marketing. Not only are you giving them a “wow” gift — having their very own icon on their mobile device, you are also arming everyone of your clients with marketing collateral that is always with them. And because having their own icon is cool, they will want to share if more often.
  • If you are providing thank you gifts to your clients (if not, you should be), you can use the app as a surprise thank you gift. If you have any volume at all, the cost per app you create is not significant and has a high perceived value to your client. The perfect kind of gift!
  • Using apps as a bonus item only available in your higher collections or when they achieve a certain spend level is another fabulous way of using MyPhotoApp to increase your bottom line. Having apps then turns into a prestige item for your better clients.
  • You can create apps for other businesses that you have, or want to have, a relationship with. For example, if you are a wedding photographer, create apps for wedding planners, venues, florists, etc. that you have a relationship with. Be their preferred vendor to work with!

The potential uses are only limited by your imagination…
