Soundmarks (free) is a remarkable audio recorder app. When you start and quit a recording, the application marks that factor, making it simple to go back to it. Think of it as an audio book marking. The truly innovative part of using the app is the ability to include notes, illustrations or even photos while a recording is taking place. You could intend to capture a whiteboard throughout a conference, or add some comments. Those additions are connected to the timeline, so you can jump to any kind of occasion by tapping a photo, text or drawing.

You do not need to do this live; you can include the notes or pictures later on, at whatever place on the time line you desire. The drawing functions go past the essentials– you can undo, remove and edit, and there are a variety of brushes to choose from.

Recording and playback of your audio documents works in the ambient, so you can switch easily to operate in various other apps while making a recording or hearing it after the fact.

Editing of any sort of item starts with a long tap to get in edit mode. Although all these functions could be accessed from the free app, there is the inescapable in-app purchase for exporting your sound data to iTunes, Dropbox, or email or importing audio recorded in other places. That IAP is US$ 0.99, and I think most users will wish to add it.

Soundmarks is a revitalizing take on audio recording. The app is universal, works with iOS 6 or higher, and is enhanced for the iPhone 5. Given that the app is free, if you believe you have an use for it, give it a shot. You could determine to include the import/export function, which is absolutely not overpriced.
