Otter is a smart note-taking app that empowers you to remember, search, and share your voice conversations (English only). Also available online at

Otter creates smart voice notes that combine audio, transcription, speaker identification, inline photos, and summary keywords. It helps business people, journalists, and students be more focused, collaborative, and efficient in meetings, interviews, lectures, and other important conversations.

It really is amazing. Great way to get your thoughts out...recorded and transcribed!

The audio portion needs to be improved. If you are sitting in a room with 8 people it only picks up bits and pieces of the conversation.
