It can sometimes become a task to be able to take notes on something, while attentively paying attention to what you're taking notes on. No matter what you are taking notes on, a solid voice recording app is a great asset to have when one is trying to be truly productive. In this article, I plan on listing some of the best available voice recording apps in the iPhone App Store.
iTalk Recorder Premium
If you're the type of person that only likes to buy things once they have been proven in value and performance, you are certainly in luck here. iTalk Recorder Premium is the top selling recording app available on the iPhone. This is because the people behind this commercially successful app, Griffin Technology, pride themselves on this app being exactly what the average person looks for in a recorder app — a great blend of simplicity, strong feature set, and search functions. It offers DropBox upload support, auto-noise cancelation, built-in search functions, multitasking support, as well as the ability to email recordings or upload them through iTunes to save on your computer. iTalk Recorder Premium is a great app that stays true to its core focusing on top quality recording without worrying about superfluous bells and whistles.
If your a fan of keeping things simple and to the point, you will be a huge fan of Recorder. Recorder is a simple recorder app, which just happens to be one of the top one button recording solutions one can find for the iPhone. It also doesn't hurt to have praise from The New York Times and a four star rating from Macworld. Its minimal feature set includes seek and pause during playback and the ability to email short recordings. You can also pause mid recording session, level its meters, and record outgoing calls. If you're looking for a simple recording app that can record anything, anywhere with a great one button interface, then Recorder is right up your alley.
HT Professional Recorder
Are you the type of student that likes to sit on the opposite side of the room of your professor so when you start to nod off they won't be able to notice you that well, or at least immediately? Are you the professional who attends conferences and is often stuck a good deal away from the speakers you came to hear? If that describes you, the voice recorder you want is the HT Professional Recorder. This app is maybe the most powerful recording app one can find for their iPhone. This is a great app for recording conversations in a crowded large room, or speeches from a good distance away. It offers good sound quality, WiFi file transfer, three levels of microphone gain sensitivity, an auto record option, and audio bookmarking. The only downside here is that the recording time limit is 30 minutes. Other than that small inconvenience, this is the voice recording app those that plan on using recording apps in crowded places should really consider.
Not to be confused with the previously listed Recorder app, Recorder Pro is a strong app. Recorder Pro was created with one main goal: to ensure the satisfaction of its users. This goal has clearly been met, evidenced by the four star rating its user community has given its latest release on average. It offers multiple recording formats and an auto pause function. You can sort and arrange by categories, and it has search functions and recording transfer options. All that comes wrapped in an appealing user interface. Overall, this versatile app is a great choice for your iPhone, especially if you're a fan of organization.
