This app's title says it all; it's a quick way to record an audio file. Once you open the app, you simply press the large, green button in the middle of the screen to begin recording. When you're done, you press the same button (now red) to stop. That's it. You do not have the option to pause and continue recording within the same file.
The following message then appears, "Sound recording converted and stored successfully." It then directs you to go to the native Photos app to listen to it. That's right, audio files recorded with this app are stored in the same location as photos and video files.
Once you access the file via the Photos app, you have the choice of emailing or copying it or sending it to YouTube.
I'm disappointed that it's not free. It's almost too simple to be worth a price tag - no matter how small it is.
