Your smartphones are probably the most powerful consumer electronic device built yet. Apart from being a useful phone, they are used as a gaming device, productivity tool, a camera, a clock and even a torch! However, one of the most underutilized functionalities of iphone is its ability to record audio.

So how can individuals utilize this functionality? Considering how busy and overloaded with information professionals are nowadays, this is an easy and simple way to record your meetings, notes, and to-dos as soon as they are fresh in your mind. This is a huge productivity tool for a wide range of professionals – business professionals, journalists, students and writers.

How to use your iphone as a digital recorder?

All iPhones includes a built-in digital recorder app called Voice Memos. As soon as you open this app, you will see an image with a microphone. Press the small red button on the bottom left to start recording. On the next screen, you would also see a list of all your voice recordings that you have saved on your iphone.

While the in-built Voice Memo is simple to use, its pretty basic and lacks functionality present in other speech to text apps available in the store that not only record audio, but also transcribe it. Below is a list of some of the other more popular apps that you can use to record audio on your iphone:

TranscribeMe: Free to download from the app store, it is the simplest iphone audio recording and transcription app available in the apple app store. It has lots of advantages over other apps: nice looking and simple user interface, allows you to playback recording, free audio storage in cloud, and ability to transcribe your recording with 98% - 100% accuracy.


iTalk: One of the most popular apps to record audio. It also gives you the option of sharing the audio file via email. 

 

AudioMemos: Although the user interface of the app is not that great, it does incorporate powerful features like sharing the video via Dropbox, FTP, and email in the paid version.
