Featured in Gizmodo's "The Best Note Taking Apps":

"AudioNote has one trick, and it's a doozy. Aside from functioning as a basic note-taking app, AudioNote can make sound recordings at the same time, and keep them synchronized, note by note, with the text. You can, in effect, relive a lecture or a meeting through sound and notes."

Excellent tool

I used to use a similar tool on my iPad and mac but wanted something to work on my iPhone. I tried AudioNote and it ticks all the boxes for me. I can record and make notes on a session and then at home open it on the iPad and fill in the notes. Copy and paste the result into other apps if required. This is just what I need to record meetings, record seminars etc. It seems to pick up a clear recording is some pretty big rooms as well as in a small office, and I don’t need to make loads of adjustments - it just works.

Desktop App to compliment the iPad app

I sync and save my iPad every evening and save all audio recorded that day onto my Mac. Listening back over the recorded lectures is great from the iPad due to the ease of tracking if you need to locate and listen to a specific part. If like me, you have hours of audio recorded and saved on the Mac, trying to locate a specific location is quite tough from the Mac.

If a desktop application could be downloaded to work alongside and compliment the iPad app then this would be perfect (for me). I have hours of recorded audio, at 25Mb per hour, that quickly becomes quite large (hence my preference to save onto a Mac and then delete and free up some space on the iPad).

Audio quality is good enough for me, and the note taking text and drawing ability is nice and simple (although I still prefer to use old fashioned pen and paper!!). I only use this app to record audio and listen back from my Mac to beef out my 'paper' notes. For the price of a pint of beer it's worth it, but would happily pay more if the desktop functions were cranked up a little. Oh, and mp3 format would also be great. Listening to recordings on iPod would then be possible (I don't think you currently can??).

Not just great->AudioNote is a GAMECHANGER

Simply put, this app has changed the way I work every day for the better. I'm a doctoral researcher, and I'm constantly in meetings/interviews where I need to pay attention to what is being said AND get enough notes and quotes to be useful later. AudioNote allows me to take very sketchy notes on broad topics during the meeting/interview (or just flag sections of the recorded conversation with **, for example), and then come back later only to the relevant sections of the recorded conversation and take more precise notes and quotes.

I also use the markup facilities to highlight important text, and to star or flag up actions for me to do later.

The app makes it easy to store your notes in the cloud or transfer directly over a wireless network via IP address. You can export your text files as pdfs, which allows them to be entered into (for example) DevonThink or another database for use (and searches) much later. You can also export the audio files separately.

All in all a brilliant application--there is also a very good version of AudioNote app for MacOS, so it's easy to markup/amend files once you have transferred AudioNote files from your iPad onto desktop or laptop.

Can't recommend it enough!!
