Are you looking for an app that easily records notes at business meetings or captures classroom lectures? One that provides you with push reminders? If so, Audio Notes Recorder, developed by Petr Jankuj, is just what you are looking for. It’s a snap to capture your thoughts and set up reminders.
When you open Audio Notes Recorder you see a list of your current notes – with the most current note on top. You can play the notes, add a reminder or delete them. Or, you can tap “new” and instantly start recording. A large display appears and you can record your thoughts – or record a meeting. You simply tap “save” when you want it to stop. You also have the option of setting the app to record when launched. I thought the audio quality was exceptional. The only difficulty, and this is true of all audio recorders, was that it picked up the noise I was making as well as the presentation I was recording.
You can also easily organize your notes. Audio Notes Recorder allows you to name the recordings, set the color of the sticky-note like icon beside the name and send yourself a push reminder. These push alerts come through whether you have the app on or not. Setting different colors for the icons helps you organize your messages – you can make all yellow messages personal and work ones red – or whatever scheme suits you.
To play a clip back you just tap the note. You can stop it by simply taping again or you can use the bar at the bottom to advance the recording, back-up, pause or restart.
Another valuable feature of Audio Notes Recorder is the ability to send the recordings to yourself or others. You simply tap the symbol in the bottom left corner and a bar appears that allows you to choose between email, FTP or WeScribeIt. The ability to quickly share your recordings could be really helpful in a business setting. A few taps and you could send the audio notes to all participants or export a copy of the recording to your PC/Mac.
The user interface in Audio Notes Recorder is simple and easy to use, and with the great recording features this app offers I’ll definitely be incorporating it into my weekly routine.
Audio Notes Recorder is compatible with iPhone and iPod Touch (2nd generation) and requires iPhone OS 3.0 or later. This App supports English, German, French, Spanish, Norwegian, Czech, Italian and Hungarian.
