A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

There are other voice recorders available for iDevices but iRecorder is one of the easiest to use. A big silver button is pressed to start and stop recordings. Deleting recorded clips can be a bit confusing for users if they don't read the tutorial message (about swiping the file to the left to reveal the delete button).


There are banner ads in this free version of iRecorder, promoting other apps. The paid ($2.99) version does not have any ads.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that iRecorder - Voice Memos, Audio Recorder, and More is a free app that lets you record audio onto the iPad. It's useful for students (to record lectures), businesspeople (during meetings or interviews), or for recording reminders or million-dollar ideas. There is no controversial content in this app, but that's not to say the user can't record themselves saying something inappropriate.

Is it any good?

Unlike the iPhone, Apple's iPad doesn't ship with a built-in app that lets you record audio. Sure, the tablet has a microphone, but users need to download a third-party app to use the iPad like a voice recorder. IRECORDER - VOICE MEMOS, AUDIO RECORDER, AND MORE is a free voice recorder useful for people who want to record their own voice or someone else's, such as students, businesspeople, or musicians. Simply tap the silver button to begin recording and tap again to stop. You can play, pause, and scrub through recordings, and delete the ones you no longer need. Audio quality is clean and clear. However, iRecorder is limited to only 10 recordings, and you can't email them (as you can in the $2.99 paid version). Also, it's too bad iRecorder doesn't let you drag and drop recorded clips to and from a computer. Overall, the free iRecorder is a good tool to record audio to the iPad -- just don't expect to get it off the tablet so easily.
