DropVox - Record Voice Memos to Dropbox
By Irradiated Software
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
••• DropVox now requires explicit permission to access the microphone in iOS 7. If you're experiencing empty audio recordings, please make sure DropVox has permission in Settings > Privacy > Microphone. •••
Dropbox + Voice Memos = DropVox. It's that simple.
DropVox records audio and sends it directly to your Dropbox account in quality M4A format.
Use DropVox to capture your spoken ideas, reminders, and more. Later, you can listen to your recordings on your desktop computer using QuickTime or iTunes, or on your iOS device using Dropbox's own app.
• Quickly record audio and send it directly to your Dropbox account, saving you time and effort.
• Compressed M4A audio files sound great while saving you storage space and bandwidth.
• Background uploading so you can continue working with other applications*.
• Full Accessibility with VoiceOver.
• Option: Start recording immediately when DropVox launches. This makes voice recording a single click operation!
• Option: Continue recording while DropVox is in the background or your device is locked*.
Coming in 2.0:
• Recording quality setting.
• Only upload over wifi.
• Better UI with progress indicators.
Note about the recording workflow:
The recording process has been streamlined and eliminates the need to name your recordings or chose where to send them. Record, Stop, and DropVox handles the rest. Uploaded recordings are conveniently named after the current date and time ensuring they will show up in chronological order within your Dropbox folder.
Note about uploading:
If an internet connection is not available at the time of recording DropVox will store the files and upload them when internet is restored.
DISCLAIMER: DropVox makes every attempt to ensure your recordings are safely delivered to Dropbox, but given the number of things outside our control, it is possible for recordings to get lost. We recommend using DropVox for short, non-essential recordings. Under the right conditions DropVox can record for many hours.
DropVox requires a Dropbox account to work. Incase you haven't caught the wave yet, Dropbox is an amazing file syncing and sharing application that runs on almost every computer platform as well as the web. Sign up for 2GB of FREE Dropbox storage at http://www.dropbox.com/register

* Background recording and uploading only supported on multitasking devices.
What's New in Version 1.2.3
• Fix for recordings getting stuck "Uploading."
• Fix for icon badge not showing the correct number of remaining uploads.
• Attempt to fix corruption when receiving a phone call during recording.
I am required to log miles for my work and this gets it done and into Dropbox where I can then log it from my PC at my convenience.
I also record sermons and post them on Facebook directly from Dropbox when they are uploaded. It has never failed and the latest update has stopped it hanging when I opened the app to record.
One small issue is that I sometimes have to reopen the app to get it to upload files when I get signal back.
I recommend this app to all my friends who have done the same. I don't need the file stored locally on my phone as Dropbox holds it for me in the cloud and I have access there.
It works and its user friendly with some adjustable parts that make this on my top ten list of ESSENTIAL apps.
This app is exactly what I have been looking for. I have found it to be perfectly reliable, I'm not really sure what some of the other reviews are talking about. Been using this a while now and never had a problem unlike some similar that have your memos mysteriously disappear. If you are offline this app will hold it until you are connected so if anything you could get a few duplicates. But never lost!
Zen and the art of....
Always in favor of apps doing one thing well, then a myriad of things half a**. This app accomplishes this. I would like this app to also record locally to the phone due to the fact that internet is not always available. Otherwise a wonderfully simple app that integrates with Dropbox in a Zen like fashion.
Accomplish big things through little tasks.
