Great app

Does not affect my music playback when opening and using this app… That's the most important aspect of it… Other voice memo apps will open up and disrupt the continuity of your music app playback so that when you're done recording, you don't know where you left off. This one handles it okay. The only thing I don't like is that it would be great to be able to send voice memos via not only email but also via text message. Additionally, why is "record" at the very bottom middle but "stop" is at the very top right?????? And it would be great to have a more graphic UI instead of textual record and stop labels placed so far apart.

Full featured

If you're willing to consider some of the extensions, there are a ton of features. When you start out, it loads all the extensions as part of a free trial. I found that made the app a lot slower than normal - so consider disabling those features as you figure what doesn't serve you.

I chose to buy the Voice Activation which makes it super easy to start recording & Multiple Selection which makes deletion a breeze when I'm done transcribing.

This used to be able to record a phonecall but I think apple prob put a stop to that with some iOS update along the way.

I'd suggest turning on the setting "Invert Redord-Play" - seemed more logical


This app is my go-to for making audio recordings with my iPhone. Some of the extra plugins are kind of clunky to use, but the bottom line is that this app works well, and I recommend it.
