Audio Note

☀☀☀ Audio Note may be all you need for basic recording and note-taking. Perfect for taking notes during meetings, lectures, or interviews. Type, record, and when you’re done, just tap the word you want to go back to and this app will seamlessly take you there. One downside: If you are doing an interview, typing notes on a phone is not ideal. Recording a speech, meeting or press conference would work. Helpful features like highlighting, underlining and photo adding are also included. This version of the app looks dated, but functions flawlessly. The free version only allows 10 min of audio per note and 2 hours total. Most may need to buy the paid version for $4.99.  —Melissa Szenda
