NEW YORK � VoiceByte, the Australian-founded voice-recording app, lets end-users record voices through mobile devices and then forwards the comments to producers, creating a more interactive media experience.

iHeartMedia will take a part-ownership stake in the app and will implement the technology on two Ryan Seacrest programs, �American Top 40� and �On Air With Ryan Seacrest,� according to pollstar.com.

The company is also working on a patent-pending dashboard to streamline the flow of audio files and data relating to sentiment and location to producers.

�We believe your voice is the most powerful instrument in the world and we wanted to give the audience a tool to help them use that instrument to express themselves and literally be a part of the show,� the startup�s CEO and co-founder Michael Fenech said.
