My GoTo Recorder

I have at least six “recording apps” on my iPhone 8, but it’s RecordPad that I always open when I’m in the field and realize I need to capture some sounds. It’s the fastest app — least delay between opening to actually recording


Sadly, it doesn't measure up

I had hoped for easy to use tool for dictation and for making short audio clips, but it is in my opinion hard to use and still has many bugs. Maybe the developer gave up since they have not provided any updates in over a year.

Developer Response

We are sorry to hear you had trouble with our app. Could you tell us what bugs you ran into and what you found difficult? We'd love to get your feedback. We also have an app specifically for dictation, Express Dictate, that maybe would be closer to what you were looking for. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our support team here:

Record and go

I frequently have to record voice prompts for the phone system at work. I record using RecordPad, email the wav file to myself, then convert the file format on my PC using Switch Sound Converter from the same company. The sound quality is better than what I get with the PC microphone. The only addition I wish for is the abiloty to save as 8 bit wav using the CCITT mU-law codec. Then I wouldn't need to run files through Switch. Add that, and I'll pay for this. Oh yeah, It's also great for recording meetings or memos. I like that it's so easy to email the files.
