A few screen grabs from the new Voicepic app

A picture may often be worth a thousand words.  But for those instances when images alone can’t tell the story, there’s Voicepic. That’s the name of a new photo sharing app from Bellevue’s UIEvolution which allows users to easily add 5-second audio captions to personal photos.

UIEvolution CEO Chris Ruff said the goal with the new app is to give photos a “voice,” while at the same time creating “an entirely new creative layer to photo sharing.”

I’ve been playing with the free iPhone app this morning, posting some of my creations (including one of GeekWire mascot Henry) to Facebook and Twitter. The app, which is only available on iPhone at the moment and requires a Facebook login, is easy to use though the 5-second limit does force one to choose their words wisely.

It’s a pretty simple concept, but UIEvolution isn’t alone in attacking the opportunity. Fotobabble and StoryMark also allow users to add audio captions to photos.

Give it a spin, and let us know what you think. Would you like to add audio to your photos?
