Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
You want a very convenient, fun and powerful way to record interviews, your band or anything else audible and browse, play and manage your recordings and bookmarks with an unprecedented ease of use? Well, then The Recorder is just the right app for you!
The Recorder lets you record audio in a very convenient way. You see all recordings you have done as regions on an infinite timeline, which you can move and pinch with your fingers. This timeline can display any time-interval you like: It doesn't matter if you want to examine that single second in more detail or even see the whole year.
You can create, edit and delete bookmarks while playback and recording. Also you can browse a list of all recordings and bookmarks you have created, tap to play, edit and delete.
All recordings are done with the high-quality sample-rate of 44.1kHz and compressed with with the AAC codec, so you get CD-quality sound, but with very low storage needs (about 27 MB per hour). You can send your recordings per email as m4a-files or access them through iTunes.
Of course you can play back or record audio even while The Recorder is in background or your iPhone is set so sleep!
What's New in Version 2.1
- lower power-consumption when running in background
- confirmation before deletion of regions
- option to delete all contained bookmarks when deleting a region
Real time recording is kind of cool. It records over a real time timeline, not into isolated files. However, I have not been able to export any sound files. ITunes reports "required file cannot be found" and while it appears to email recorded regions, no files appear in any inbox. It may be a factor of size. These .m4a files are over an hour long and exceed 40mb, which in the grand scheme of things is not very big.
Used to record gaming sessions. Recording and bookmarking work fine. Sound quality is good. Playback is good. I have to play-to-record from my iPad to my PC in order to liberate the recordings.
Requires IOS 5?!?
Can't even install it on my device.
