Works with iPhone, iPod touch, iPad Ver­sion 1.1

One lesser-men­tioned use for an iPhone or other iOS de­vice is as a voice recorder. And while the fi­delity is never go­ing to be as good as a ded­i­cated pocket record­ing de­vice, you al­ways have your phone with you.

Mic’d is a sim­ple app that uses the mi­cro­phone on your de­vice (or in­deed any other con­nected mic) to cap­ture au­dio. It can be set to start record­ing on launch, and to split record­ings into five, 15 or 30 minute chunks. Record­ings can be played back, re­named, shared to so­cial media or ex­ported to an email or mes­sage. There’s sup­port for Ap­ple Watch too, though it’ll trig­ger record­ing or play­back, rather than record on the phone. There’s no edit­ing and most of what it does is al­ready in Ap­ple’s Voice Memos app, though split­ting record­ings and Watch re­mote sup­port aren’t.

A use­ful lit­tle app if you have an Ap­ple Watch, though quite sim­i­lar to Voice Memos.
