Is there an accessible good recording app for iPad?

iOS and iPadOS

Hi! I got my iPad today and this far, I love it. I am looking for a recording ap for it. I could use hokusai, but it is too advanced. But it could work?

Hi. I use an app called My Memos if I need to recohd something. It's free. It's accessible, but there are ads on it, and just a few unlabeled buttons. But they're not usually a problem. It runs in portrait mode though, so be aware of that. Hope this helps, and glad you're enjoying your ipad!

I use Voice Memos with my iPad Mini. I believe that I purchased it for $1.99. It is easy to use and has no adds. Congratulations on getting your new iPad and enjoy it.

Hi Sabrina. What are you wanting to record? Voice Memos is a really decent native app for simple recordings. There is to my knowledge no limit to how long, and you can properly label them after you're done. Quickvoice is a decent app which is a lot more accessible than it used to be. You have a lot of ptions with it. One thing to keep in mind is that voiceover will stop working while the app is recording. If you're fully blind that might be a hinderence. Ferrite Recording Studio is a good option, though like Hokusai it's a bit advanced. Accessible though. Another option, especially if you have an Ipad is Garage Band. While not as accessible as it once was, I have it on pretty good authority (as I use it) that recording certainly would be. The ipad actually has a pretty decent microphone, and there are filters, and effects such as EQ and compression you can use to modify the recording. I hope that helps.

I decided to go for something I knew so I tried using Hokusai. I haven't yet found a native app for recording but Hokusai is great. And the microphone on my iPad is awesome by the way.
