Croak.it!

Croak.it!

This weekend I was looking for an app to record only audio.  There are plenty of apps out there that will record audio and video, but I strictly wanted audio.  I also wanted it to be very simple to use.

So, I did a little digging.

The apps that I discovered were iTalk Recorder and Voice Recorder HD.

iTalk Recorder was a very nice app and has a very easy to use interface.  But what it didn’t have was a place to store the recording.  I could email the recording to myself and then upload it to a webserver of some sort and then share it…WAY TO CUMBERSOME!

The second app I looked at was Voice Recorder HD. This was a very nice app.  However, this free app had advertisements galore.  One aspect that I thought was a true positive was that it had the ability to save recording to Google Drive and to DropBox.  All in all a good app but the ads need to go away and the user interface needs to be simpler.  If I was working with this app and students, the ads would be a distraction.

I looked a bit more and came across Croak.it! Now this app is exactly what I was looking for.  It is perfect.  It is easy.  It stores the recoded audio onto its own server and can automatically generate a link, which makes it simple to add a recording to a blog or a webpage.    Each recording can only be 30 seconds in length.  You might say, only thirty seconds, however, think about thirty seconds, that is a long time.

Absolutely my favorite part about Croak.it! is that it is well within my price range…FREE!

Check it out!

    I used CroakIt! with my first grade students this week! It was simple and easy for them to record and then email to me. I was then able to link them onto my blog. It was simple!! Thanks for the info –
