What's the best audio recording app for iPhone?
February 18, 2013 10:49 AM Subscribe
I'm working on a project that requires me to record a couple dozen interviews (two speakers max). Each interview is 45 minutes to an hour and a half in length. I have an iPhone 5 and want to use it to make my recordings. I need to send the recordings to a transcriber. I'm looking for a simple, reliable app that will make clean recordings. I'd like to avoid using an external mic if I can. Any favourites you can suggest? No preference for free or paid apps, I just want something that works well and is foolproof.

The interview subject will be seated and there will be little to no background noise to deal with. I've seen this question
, but it's kind of old and I don't have a need to make broadcast-quality recordings. I just need the recording to be clear enough for the transcriber to do her job.
Bonus question: Are there any apps that will let me record on my phone and then directly transfer the file to a Dropbox folder through the app on my phone?
