Superb voice memo app!! Have been using since 2013!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I have used this app since 2013 and find it to be excellent.* I have recorded blog posts and much of a book on long walks (for transcribing later).

I have tried a number of voice memo options (including the one native to iOS devices); this is the best with the most functionality, hands down. It has great functionality offered through its extensions, such as condensing file size and seamless Dropbox compatibility, and other features (mentioned below).

*I don’t understand the negative reviews: all my purchases have been easily restored, sound quality is great, easily switches over to wired or wireless earphones and records wonderfully. Back to iCloud is available. Files accidentally deleted can be retrieved. A well designed, well conceived app that has been an indispensable creative aid for me—not too mention a memory jogger when I used it for shorter recordings to remind myself of this or that tasks or idea.

Life Support

The creation of this is app was a gift to the planet. It has helped me record & maintain a record of very precious & sacred moments in the life of myself & my loved ones. It is a blessing & a grace. I only wish it could record from the phone so I can listen to my voices of family when we are separated by long distance travel. Continued prosperity & increased created output for the creators & their allies in development of this app. Thank you. I am grateful for your efforts. Sincerely.

Full featured

Has been my go to way to record little to dos while driving for at least 5 years & still most-efficient option I’m aware of.

Lots of options (but taking advantage of some or all of them can lead to a slower experience). Have gotten competent response to my support requests on a few occasions.
