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!
