Just Press Record: audio notes and memos with iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch and Mac

Just Press Record is an app for iOS, watchOS and macOS with which you can easily record, save and transcribe audio notes, memos and the like. The application saves the voice recordings locally and / or in the iCloud, if desired. In addition, they are converted directly into text via audio transcription so that you can search, edit and use your recorded notes on the Apple Mac. This eliminates the need for your own evaluation and typing of voice recordings.

The Just Press Record app from the developer Open Planet Software is just 4,8MB in size and compatible with iOS 11. You can find the program for 5,49 EUR in the Apple App Store for iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch as well as in the App Store for the Apple Mac / MacBook. With the mobile devices you can start, pause, end or stop the recording with just a tap of your finger.

In addition to the integrated microphones, you can also use external microphones or the Apple AirPods for recording. There is a lock screen widget and a 3D touch quick function for quick use. The recording also works in airplane mode, i.e. offline. The recordings are saved locally and later synchronized to the iCloud. The audio quality of the recordings goes up to 96kHz and 24bit.

The iPhone app contains new audio recordings, the selection of the audio source and of course the area in which you can set settings such as the sample rate and the audio format.

Recommendation of the app

At this point I would like to recommend the Just Press Record app to you, as it is a wonderful way to record voice notes virtually anywhere - even without an iPhone, simply with the Apple Watch. It even records in airplane mode (i.e. when you don't have an internet connection) and then pushes the recordings to iCloud at the next opportunity. For this purpose, the audio recordings are transcribed directly, so that you have a text that can also be searched with the global search of the app.

The watch app is simple, but extremely practical if you want to dictate voice memos without an iPhone - you can sort them later on the iPhone or iPad.

The recordings do not necessarily have to be in iCloud. If you don't use iCloud, you can also save the recordings locally on the device. I use the app, for example, to "take notes with a dictation machine" when testing devices. This has always worked wonderfully so far. You just have to make sure that there is no background noise or a background that is too loud; then the transcription works very well.

Download

As already mentioned, the Just Press Record download can be found in the respective Apple App Store of your device. You don't have to look for it, of course, because, as always, I've done the work for you. Click here:
