A good voice recorder app is essential for a journalist. I was loyal to Griffin iTalk until it was no longer supported and asked my colleagues at PCMag what they were using. Some of the answers were surprising (the default voice memos on the iPhone), some led to the realization that they have relied on the same old app for years, and some caused great concern to people (Evernote was a favorite until then) price increases) ,
Of course, you do not have to be a journalist to use voice recording apps. They are useful for podcasters, students, private investigators, audio note-takers and sometimes only for the simple paranoids. Yes, there are separate digital recorders, but why should you carry two devices with you when you have all these options in your hands?
The apps listed below are free or relatively inexpensive, ranging from simple, easy-to-use apps. Operate apps with all the features that professionals value. If we missed your favorite, let us know in the comments.
