You have a ton of voice recording apps for iPhone, but a lot of them don’t work super well. Cassette manages to offer up a good organization scheme, solid recording features, and a handy, yet pricey transcription feature if you need it.
Recording quality audio all comes down to preventing major problems from the start. This guide, from NPR’s Rob Byers and NPR audio engineers, will help you avoid recording problems, as well as fix editing and mixing problems.
For whatever reason, the iPhone has tons of different voice recording apps, but very few of them do anything more than Apple’s free Voice Memos app. We like Just Press Record because it manages to make itself worth its asking price by offering a different experience and feature set than Apple’s offering.
iOS/Mac: For whatever reason, Apple’s Voice Memos app doesn’t sync up with any software on the Mac, which means you have to email recordings to yourself or drop them into a note. If you want something that just automatically syncs, Just Press Record does the job.
Your smartphone can double up as a dictaphone. Point your handset at the speaker and you can record meetings, lectures and interviews. Google Play has plenty of great voice recording apps, but Cogi rises to the top by recognizing the core needs of recording speech better than other apps.
iPhone: I love free apps that do one thing right and look good doing it. That's what Interviewy is for someone in need of turning their iPhone into a dictaphone for lectures, interviews or any other voice recording.
iOS: Sometimes you just need to quickly get down an idea without fumbling around with buttons. Say&Go is a simple app that, once launched, instantly starts recording a very short voice memo.
