Get the most out of your voice memo app
Your iPhone is packed with productivity tools, but you don’t have to download a dozen apps to turn your device into a real time-saver. Apple’s voice memo app alone can boost your productivity, help you keep track of appointments and reminders, and act as your personal assistant. Use voice memos to record conversations, meetings, lectures, and the good idea you had while driving or walking the dog. You can even record a phone call on your iPhone using the Voice Memos app.
The app is easy to locate – you’ll find it in your Utilities folder, but you can move it wherever you want or ask Siri to open it for you. It’s easy to use. It is available on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and Apple computers. And best of all, it’s free. There is no time limit for recordings (it depends on your device’s internal storage capacity), so you can probably record the entire conference without worry.
Scroll down for tips that go beyond recording voice memos and all the really cool things you can do with a voice memo app. It may just inspire you to dig deeper into the features of your devices, learn what you didn’t know your iPad could do, some useful hidden iPhone features, tips for screen recording on iPhone and those iPhone hacks that you are I really wish you knew sooner.

Or maybe you need a quick way to jot down a brilliant idea – for a business, a birthday present, etc. – during your journey.
It’s incredibly easy to use the Voice Memos app on your iPhone. (Just be sure to ask the other person for permission first!) Here’s how:
- Open the Voice Memos app.
- To start recording, press the red record button.
