A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

QuickVoice Recorder wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

Recording an email is a simple process. Simply press the record button and talk. 

Violence
Sex
Language
Consumerism

Users who wish to send longer audio emails will have to purchase the premium version of the app. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that QuickVoice Recorder is a utility program that allows people to record emails, rather than type them. It can be useful for children with special needs who are unable to type or read. The free program is a good test run, but for children (who rarely know how to vocalize just one or two sentence emails), the premium program is a choice worth considering.

What's it about?

Users hit a sizable \"Record\" button then speak into their phone or tablet, rather than typing out an email. (They can pause at any time.) Upon completion, smaller buttons in the lower part of the screen let them add a title and choose whom to send it to from their contact list (adding a new email requires manual typing). Emails can also be sent as an iPhone ringtone. Users who receive the emails on their iDevice can open them by clicking on them, but some PC users will have to download them and manually select QuickTime to play/\"read\" them.

Is it any good?

As a business tool, QuickVoice has a few fatal flaws. First, PC users have to do some footwork to figure out how to play the messages. And messages with confidential information could be overheard by anyone nearby. As a tool for special needs children, though, there is some potential. 

Kids don't have to worry about spelling or typing. They simply record what they want to say and hit send. It's also can be a good tool for kids who want to hear their parents'/grandparents'/friends' voice when they're not around and a phone call isn't an option.
