The best audio and voice recorder for iPhone just got better! All new for iOS 11 and watch OS 4.0, now you can record audio directly from your Apple Watch (even in the background) and have it available in seconds in the SimpleMic app and on your Mac via iCloud.

SimpleMic is the fast and elegant audio recorder that makes capturing sound on your iOS device a delightful experience. Now featuring iCloud Drive sync, it has never been easier to collect all your audio on all of your devices!

Completely redesigned from the ground up for iOS 9 and with usability in mind, SimpleMic takes advantage of the entire screen to provide gesture based controls atop a beautifully presented user interface. Swipe left or right to start recording and you'll instantly be treated to a vivid glowing level meter as the microphone captures crystal clear audio. Swipe up or down to reveal three different recording modes, each taylor made for specific real-world situations. Ever needed to start recording as soon as the band starts playing or the lecturer speaks? "Sound Activated" mode will quietly wait until the microphone picks up enough sound, then will quickly start recording, even capturing audio from a few seconds prior to make sure you get a perfect recording every time. How about that annoying rattling sound you used to get at the start of every audio recording, you know, that familiar sound of your device being set on the desk after you tap the "record" button and place it down? We hate that too, which is why we also built a "No Motion Activated" mode. Just swipe and place your device where you need to, SimpleMic will wait for it to be completely still for a few moments before starting your recording. No more click-clacks or thuds, just the sweet sounds of your beautiful voice. Finally, if you can't waste even a split second, enable the "Record on Start" option to start recording automatically when you launch the app.

But the awesomeness doesn't stop once you're done recording, SimpleMic is as functional under the hood as it is above. Dive in to the recordings list to access and manage all your audio in one place. Every recording gets tagged by date and geo location, but you can easily choose your own label and add notes. And most importantly, SimpleMic offers some of the most comprehensive sharing and uploading functionality of any such app on the market today. Every recording is stored in iCloud and thus backed up and secure. If you need to get audio files off of your device, we have you covered there as well, all of your recordings will be available on your Mac running OS X Yosemite in iCloud Drive. Or, upload/open the audio files directly to Email, SoundCloud, Dropbox, Evernote, or any other app on your device that supports opening audio files.

Best recording app out there BUT...


This is by far the best audio recording app which is transferable and uploaded to your iCloud drive as well as Google drive and numerous other options there’s no time length the audio pick up is extraordinary. The only problem I have is when I’m done recording with the file I really don’t know how I get it to the finish screen where I can go back and look at all the recordings I just have to mess with the screen and something eventually does it but there’s nothing in the instructions thatExplain how to and and say recording sometimes they never got saved other times they did but I can’t so I just have to do a Radick finger movements on the screen and don’t really know how I do it I just have to hope for good luck in that I don’t lose it

Very Functional


I needed to record a speaker at a live event and up load the recording for others to hear. I was able to down load the app, learn how it operates, and record the session with no problems all in the same morning. The sound quality was great even at a distance in a crowd.

They are trying to trick you. Be better than me.


The recorder was all right, but the big bad thing about this is that the app made it seem like you could share/email recordings for free but no. You cannot. You have to pay $3 to do that, which is dumb. And my procrastinating college self paid the fee anyway bc I was tired of searching for simple recording apps and ready to be just done with a project. Don’t let them get you. Learn from my mistakes. Search longer and harder for better, less predatory apps.
