Description of App

An accessible recorder with you wherever you go!

Pocket Recorder has been created with speed and ease of use in mind. Many applications can be very difficult to navigate for Visually Impaired users, but Pocket Recorder’s menus are very comprehensive and graphics have been minimalized to ensure swift navigation for users with screen reading. We have designed this application to be fully accessible with Voiceover so users can also benefit from using any Voiceover compatible braille display. Use of a Braille display enhances navigation and allows quick naming of files. We highly recommend using the application with a good pair of headphones to prevent any Voiceover speech from being recorded and to remain incognito in whatever environment you find yourself in. Link your Dropbox account to automatically upload recordings to your other devices!

We hope you find Pocket Recorder to be a useful and effective tool for capturing those moments you need to remember!

Much cheaper and works really well.

Once iOS 11 comes out, iRecorder will no longer be supported. I do love that app, but sadly, it hasn't been updated in a really long time. So I'd say Pocket Recorder is a great alternative.

I was looking forward to using this app and even paying for it until I discovered it only records in M4a. Not good enough for my needs. Even if it recorded in high quality wav, that would have been enough. Granted. All the credit in the world for making this app accessible to us but thumbs down for making it useless without wav or MP3 file output support.
