Ratings and Reviews

Very basic and limited. Here's why:-

Capital O

iTalk Lite

•Ball and stick slider to show location.
• Record indicator in seconds and Playback Count up and down indicator in seconds.
• Input volume meter.
• Records, pause recording, continue recording.
• Files recording.
• Allows editing of name.
• Playback
• Append recording to end of existing file.
• Select record quality
• Share recording by accessing iTalk Synch by WiFi.
• Playback volume ok for closeup recording; poor for distance.

• NO Overwrite anywhere in recording
• NO Insert feature (far more useful than the usual overwrite that most have, which destroys any following recording).
• NO mark and delete unwanted bits.
• NO macros. Useful for storing often used phrases, and also for templates,
• NO scrolling real-time waveform. This would allow accurate marking for cutting of even a single sound, e.g. a cough. Not possible on a compressed waveform. It doesn't matter here: you can't edit recordings anyway.
• NO Voice activated recording to avoid silences.
• NO Bookmarks that can be inserted during recording, and playback, listed and editable.
• NO ability to mark and save sections of a recording.
• NO ability to shuffle and assemble saved clips to form new recording.

• Works OK as a very basic closeup recorder, but very limited features for serious work.

Professional level audio recorder - easy transfer of aiff files to Mac/PC - this seriously ROCKS


I've worked in radio for 30 years and used dozens of sound recorders from reel to reel tape onwards - now my iPhone is good enough to use for work!!!!

Test recordings at distances normal for media conferences were no sweat and the input meter is SO useful, it's even good enuff for some VO's if there's not much ambient sound.

Automatic Saving as an aiff file is complemented by easy and fast transfer using the sister App.

I don't normally like ads tagged onto apps and other stuff, but this App is so good I don't give a $#@

This prolly sounds gushy, but when something is this good even a cynical old hack gets gooey - thanks Griffin

An obvious foul up in first version - awaiting update


This is the one I thought I was waiting for. Griffin have the track record, so expectations were high. Like the others, I've found the first version released simply does NOT record, which is something of a miss for a piece of recording software. It looks to me that when this one records (in AIFF) and Bias iProRecorder actually transfers files, that either may be suitable for podcast recording. Oh, yes. The ads scrolling along the screen base? OK if there is a choice of a pro version which is ad-free, but not if this is the only choice.
