Apple’s preloaded Voice Memo has now become a more useable app for the classroom. The user interface is cleaner now with navigation easier. Trimming and deleting parts of the recording is simplified and saving files with appropriate titles streamlined. The app also allows upload to Dropbox which means easy sharing and archiving. AirDrop again means sharing with others with iOS hardware is one click away.
The screen also rotates so that the iPhone can be held with the mic facing up to work like a dictaphone.
Another feature that is useful is recording with the screen locked meaning you can record students without distraction to them while they perform tasks for you.
