I use Alon Dictaphone for random sound captures and it’s extremely helpful.

It's Awesome!
by Batgirl2011 on 2020/08/29 17:17
Very nice app. Use it to record class lectures for my students. It interfaces nicely with other apps (eg DropBox) for upload. Sound quality is good. While the recording dashboard is clear. The developers made some key improvements in its upgrades. My go to audio recording app these days.
Excellent - love it
by Bdjrigfrheufjeh12745 on 2020/08/25 18:38
Easy to use on both the dictating end and receiving/ listening end.

Accessible and powerful!
by jcdjmac on 2020/05/02 00:32
This app is absolutely accessible and powerful!! Love it’s recording capabilities, especially it’s voice activated recording function. The overall accessibility is a win win for me and the blind community, it’s going to get better with every update. Works fully 100% with VoiceOver!! I love it, and it’s my go-to every day recorder!!
Good but could be easier to do edits
by JTS5641 on 2020/02/17 19:59
For years I used Olympus dictation. It was a bit easier to edit and to switch from insert to overwrite mode.
Great little app for recording
by smedman on 2020/02/15 19:39
The UI takes a little getting used to but these guys have made a great app for recording lectures or whatever. Lots of integrations with cloud storage tools. They have responded to feedback and made improvements based on our email exchanges.
Good app
by eashley on 2020/01/17 22:42
Would give 5 stars if directions were reasonable.hirribke interface and extremely poor manual.very steep learning curve but is a extremely good app
Basic functions are puzzling
by Missy4446 on 2020/01/02 05:05
I like the recorder. It has good sound and it allows me to slow the speed if I want to transcribe. However I am having issues with very basic functions. I can’t play back and listen to the recording I select. Instead it scrolls to the top and only lets me play back the most recent one. I cannot find a manual, only what looks like an ad with photos.
Use it at work
by Smcroft on 2019/11/15 14:00
Great app. Easy to use once setup. I like the one button upload to google drive. Easy to locate the sound files. Very easy to use.
Dictaphone

BAD
by L and S on 2018/11/12 07:39
BAD - NOT USER FRIENDLY
Dont buy full version
by AAAAnika on 2018/08/23 17:19
When i updated to full version for 4.99$ all my recordings are gone. They were really important to me
Very reliable
by DrJShinn on 2018/05/09 00:37
I use it to record song ideas on the fly. Extremely useful for this.
High quality
by baseballbeat on 2018/04/23 21:29
Very nice recording capacities.
Stable, somewhat non-intuitive
by Kapo10 on 2018/02/04 20:52
This program works well once you get used to its non-standard buttons and user experience. I think with a few tweaks they could make it something that is in alignment with normal apps. The instructions could also probably use some expansion, for instance to make it easier to understand how to switch to MP3 output rather than WAV. Finally, the ceaseless demands for a Review were pretty annoying, and I’m sure tends to depress the ultimate ratings people give. It would be smarter if they asked less frequently.
Rate this app
by Tmcclain1229 on 2017/12/25 02:49
Done, now quit asking.
Works great
by Smartreviews on 2017/11/11 22:40
Very happy with app
Don't keep asking
by MFC58 on 2017/09/04 19:33
Since I purchased I would expect that I do not have to rate the app if I prefer not to rate it.
My honest opinion
by Theos3 on 2017/09/04 16:25
To date I've downloaded quite a few recording apps for recording bible class at church and while many gave me quality recordings the level of that quality was always dependent upon my distance from the speaker.BUT, with this app the quality has been good even from my furthest seating position. To me this is the best feature even though there are many more.
FTP sync
by SRQ.S on 2017/08/31 00:30
After you have synced the file to server, no way to know which one has been synced. There should be option of color change or check mark or something else to know some of the files have been synced and some are pending. Clicking support link on their website goes to middle of nowhere.
Stable, flexible & feature rich
by scubnubbic on 2017/08/12 03:14
This is the only stable app I have found in the App Store that enables you to record at 44.1 kHz or higher and 32 bit depth. It also gives you the ability to bypass the iPhones internal audio circuitry. I have literally tried every recording application in the App Store and this is the best. There are no longer other features to buy to have the full Alon app. There are also now no advertisements. I use this app on a iPhone 6s+ and have not experienced any of the problems mentioned in the other reviews. I use this app with my Shure MV88 stereo mic for impresive CD-quality music recording. With the Shure Motiv app running in the background and set up the the way you choose the Alon app Records with the settings in both apps when the MV 88 is used. This is an excellent combination. Customer support is the best I've encountered.
It's pretty decent
by Ragakat1 on 2017/08/04 21:47
The rate app pops up every time so that's annoying besides that it's good.
Dr
by Smoothbrain on 2017/07/28 00:02
Two complaints. 1. Inability to delete recordings 2. Prompts to "rate the app" after each use Otherwise, works as expected.
Being asked to rate the app is annoying
by amypacemaker on 2017/06/29 19:09
The app is fine, but you will be asked to rate the app every single time you open it, and then multiple times throughout the day. I am using this to dictate patient charts while our regular system is down, and I get a new "rate our app" pop up after EVERY dictation. That's about 20 times per day. For $5 purchase price, I expect not to have a ton of pop-up messages during use. They are very frustrating.
Great
by Ann76jk on 2017/06/23 16:36
I really like it. I have the full version
Works well!

Confusing
by Cf mAine on 2017/05/10 18:25
Excellent at long recordings. Had a meeting 2 1/2 hours long recorded with no problem. Sound quality, excellent. Use of software, not very user-friendly. Trying to transcribe my notes hitting pause in between, brings me to the beginning. Attempting to use bookmarks, gives the option to name the bookmarks, I do, and bookmark names don't show up, just the times. Finding it a bit confusing. Took me a long time to figure out how to go from the recording screen to the list where I could find on my recordings and then to find all of the bookmarks. So, excellent to record and listen all at once, not so user-friendly to transcribe.
ANNOYING REVIEW REMINDERS
by iPad fan club (jk) on 2017/03/30 21:08
Good app but review reminders are way too frequent.
Great app
by Cookdaddy83 on 2017/03/29 00:14
Excellent app, but there is a notification to review the app CONSTANTLY while using it, even after paying for it. Other than that, good job
Great Product

Best recording App
by yoFLO on 2017/01/10 03:46
Solid integration to upload to many source apps after recording. Best feature in my opinion!!
Nice app.
by CyberReport on 2017/01/07 06:09
Works great with my Apple Watch.
Stop nagging to rate
by QuintaRuban on 2017/01/06 16:17
Can only hope that by writing a review, the app will stop nagging me to review the app.
Superb!
by Quickology on 2017/01/04 16:38
Way to go! Awesome recording App. I use it to keep lists and for reminders.
Love it
by SteveHHMD on 2017/01/02 15:35
I use it for medical dictation. Awesome!
Features keep getting better
by JP Paz Soldan on 2016/12/22 21:57
... as user interface keeps getting more confusing. Recent additions of notes, pictures and the ability to append a new recording to an existing are great! Merge 2 recordings, add marks Deleted recordings need to be deleted again, otherwise they don't disappear. Export to Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, mail, Gmail, etc
Pretty Good
by Quixotic9 on 2016/12/20 06:00
I like being able to upload to Dropbox. Good set of tools, also.
Great app works well
by Boltz869 on 2016/12/14 01:59
Awesome app as advertised
Great! But..
by B_rent on 2016/12/10 15:12
Great app! But it constantly bugs you to write a review until you do.
Didn't really feel like writing this review!
by Papillonrev on 2016/11/27 13:12
I like this app but I was coerced by its creators into writing this review. Their request for a review has two options, 1. Rate the app now or 2. Remind me later. The "Remind me later" option means that they will keep on asking you to rate them over and over again, ad infinitum. So, I'm really rating them only to stop that annoying little white window from popping up practically every time I open the app. For me, this is a five star app, but until they add a third option of "don't ask me again" as most other apps have in their review requests, I will take away one star for their lack of know-how and another for not knowing the meaning of finesse.
Great app
by Stspod on 2016/10/19 21:28
Works well and the sound quality is quite good.
Use all the time. Love it!
by Eng.user on 2016/10/12 07:58
I teach piano, and to help students practice ensemble music, I record and send both the Primo and Secondo parts. I use the metronome so they will know exactly when to come in. After recording, it is very easy to type in the name of each part along with the metronome tempo. It is just as easy to send directly to them through email.
Seems like it will do what I need
by Noface2 on 2016/09/06 01:15
I used this for a couple of weeks and it worked pretty well. However now it constantly crashes 10 seconds after start up. It is now useless to me. What I need is for an app to record in MP3 and to automatically update to dropbox. It seems like it will do that nicely. I am writing this review to get rid of the pesky reminder to write a review, which I don't need when I'm about to record.
Just downloaded it
by Seller Concern on 2016/08/24 16:57
So far so good. Need to test little more. If I don't change this review, it should be good :P
Crap
by Magical Marty on 2016/08/21 11:14
Nag-ware even after I bought it.
Trustworthy Dictaphone
by HollyGordonPhoto on 2016/07/09 15:48
My biggest concern when I'm dictating is that, if I'm not looking at the app, can I trust it to keep recording. I often dictate for over 30 minutes without checking to see if I'm still being recorded and this app has never failed me. That is a wonderful thing.
Lots of great functions but interface not smooth
by Gabe0910 on 2016/06/23 11:25
Best dictation app I've used (so far).
Very good app
by Shuffle Board on 2016/06/20 06:45
Love the Dropbox synch. Would be five stars except for the pestering prompts to rate the app, and the fact that hey do not give you an option not to rate it at all. It gets pretty obnoxious...
Buy the $5 version
by Justindee12345 on 2016/06/19 21:18
If you want it as a free AP you're wasting your time. Buy the 4.99 version and so far it works well but it's only been 3 minutes.
Lots of great features but memory hog
by WeedsWork on 2016/06/16 15:08
This app has almost every feature you might want in a memo app. I've tried lots of them (about 15) and this has the best combination of features and usability. I've noticed, for instance, that sound quality when recording memos can be a problem with other apps but the sound quality here is great. Drawbacks: The user interface is a bit clunky and outdated but doesn't take too long to master. Also, this app is a huge memory hog, which is the main reason I don't use it nearly as often as I would otherwise.
Awesome app
by Niki.32 on 2016/06/16 10:44
Has a learning curve though! Be patient!
Great app!
by jacree01 on 2016/06/04 21:45
Is as promised. Good customer service to. I emailed them for a custom launcher URL and they responded in 24 hours tops. db-3tbtmvpxbkxzjat:// if you were wondering :)

Could use a much need esthetic renovation, upgrade.
I like it very much
by Ujpesti on 2016/05/05 22:28
Alon recording was my second choice up until now. With today's update you got number one spot. I like the additional new features especially the start recording on launch. This was a badly missing feature. Thanks and keep up the good work. I recommend this app to everyone.
Safety meeting minutes , great
by Naiobi on 2016/04/27 15:41
Great for capturing meeting information. It's better than manual dictation, the always readying. Clear and concise. Great product!!!!!!!!

Fantastic App!
by Razzle Matilda on 2016/03/20 16:08
Great to record long meetings or short memos to myself. I especially love it during training meetings, so I can go back over my notes while listening, and see exactly what I missed, or play back any time I have a question. I can share the files with others on my team, so we ALL have the same recording. It's a great tool for professionals, as well as for personal use. I wish I had this when my little girl did her singing performances for me-- I'd have a great CD to enjoy now!
Great app - love the wifi transfer!

Not acceptable to be asked to review on every launch
by mmmmisha on 2016/02/27 00:16
The program itself might be perfectly fine, but it's ridiculous to be asked to do a review every time you launch the program. And I have paid version no less. Very annoying!

by Eng.user on 2016/01/09 16:59
I recently downloaded and installed ALON Dictaphone. While it did take some effort to learn how to use all of the built in functions for this app, it was worth the time and effort to do that. I regularly record various things that I have read. This includes short stories, plays, news, and anything that I want to listen to while driving in my car. I have other audio apps that I have used in the past few years, but the ALON Dictaphone has some unusual qualities that I think places this app at the top of the list. Quality of sound, organization of files by category, ability to alter the audio files as well as the option to add written notes to each file, and the ease of synching to iCloud, Dropbox, or a number of different ways to move files back and forth between devices, are just some of the things I especially like. Perhaps the most important “like” I have is the considerate and helpful support from the developers. When I had questions, they not only supplied answers, but gave extra suggestions and information on how to do a task. I give this app a 5 star rating.
so far exceptional in more ways than I care to take the to write except one thing...
by Magical Marty on 2016/01/03 23:14
... Uploading a large file via email, it offers to break it up... again exceptional. What is less than exceptional is having to babysit this process for each section of file telling it to send it to the same address for each email. A bit of code could prevent this horrendous waste of time. It breaks it up into 1mb sections... so with a 147mb file... you get the idea.
Great App
by Grammy2bry on 2015/12/23 13:58
I use this app to record medical notes in a mobile clinic setting & then transcribe when I am through seeing patients, works quite well, a real time saver.
Good app, but a little confusing
by Joblowhatayaknow on 2015/12/18 02:44
This is a quality app, I only use two apps for audio notes and this is one of them. It can be a little confusing at times, the layout felt a little odd at first. However, as I am using the app more nowadays, things are starting to fall in place.

Super Note Taker is super
by ALON Dictaphone on 2015/10/27 19:44
Over the years, I have used several different note-taking apps for my extensive writing and reporting responsibilities, and this one is probably the best: I'm hedging a little because I've only used it now for about a week, however, that includes a keynote address and a day-long conference. It performed flawlessly, and I particularly made good use of the footnotes capabilities. Later, I found the ability to regulate the speed of playback very helpful for transcription purposes.

I can’t play back and listen to the recording I select. Instead it scrolls to the top and only lets me play back the most recent one. I cannot find a manual, only what looks like an ad with photos.
Use it at work

FTP sync
by SRQ.S on 2017/08/31 00:30
After you have synced the file to server, no way to know which one has been synced. There should be option of color change or check mark or something else to know some of the files have been synced and some are pending. Clicking support link on their website goes to middle of nowhere.
Excellent - love it

I am a profesional voice actor, a creative writer and a musician. Mobile audio recording plays an important role in my life. I've been looking for years for an app that gives me the flexibility of high quality recording, idea recording and editing tool all in one. This is close to be perfect for me. It has replaced 6 of my previous recording apps already! I can record high quality auditions and send them to my agent in both of the industry standards .WAV and MP3. Kudos for that. I can record ideas very easily while I'm driving or away from my desk and organize them later for easy review. That's one of the big pluses of this app IMHO. I have used it also to record a guitar recital in combination with a Zoom iQ5 mic for iPhone 5 with outstanding results. The only things missing for me are: 1) Ability to monitor recording with headsets. (The iQ5 mic has an input jack for headsets but it requires the app to allow monitoring which I don't think this app has or it is so hidden I haven't found it yet.) 2) Ability to display text on screen to read while recording. I know this is too much to ask but just think how many rappers, poets, actors, teachers, narrators etc. would benefit from this. (check an app called iSaidWhat? to see what I'm talking about) Other than that very good app. Keep it up.
BAD
by L and S on 2018/11/12 07:39
BAD - NOT USER FRIENDLY
Lots of great features but memory hog
by WeedsWork on 2016/06/16 15:08
This app has almost every feature you might want in a memo app. I've tried lots of them (about 15) and this has the best combination of features and usability. I've noticed, for instance, that sound quality when recording memos can be a problem with other apps but the sound quality here is great. Drawbacks: The user interface is a bit clunky and outdated but doesn't take too long to master. Also, this app is a huge memory hog, which is the main reason I don't use it nearly as often as I would otherwise.
outstanding!
by Eng.user on 2016/01/09 16:59
I recently downloaded and installed ALON Dictaphone. While it did take some effort to learn how to use all of the built in functions for this app, it was worth the time and effort to do that. I regularly record various things that I have read. This includes short stories, plays, news, and anything that I want to listen to while driving in my car. I have other audio apps that I have used in the past few years, but the ALON Dictaphone has some unusual qualities that I think places this app at the top of the list. Quality of sound, organization of files by category, ability to alter the audio files as well as the option to add written notes to each file, and the ease of synching to iCloud, Dropbox, or a number of different ways to move files back and forth between devices, are just some of the things I especially like. Perhaps the most important “like” I have is the considerate and helpful support from the developers. When I had questions, they not only supplied answers, but gave extra suggestions and information on how to do a task. I give this app a 5 star rating.
Didn't really feel like writing this review!
by Papillonrev on 2016/11/27 13:12
I like this app but I was coerced by its creators into writing this review. Their request for a review has two options, 1. Rate the app now or 2. Remind me later. The "Remind me later" option means that they will keep on asking you to rate them over and over again, ad infinitum. So, I'm really rating them only to stop that annoying little white window from popping up practically every time I open the app. For me, this is a five star app, but until they add a third option of "don't ask me again" as most other apps have in their review requests, I will take away one star for their lack of know-how and another for not knowing the meaning of finesse.
Better than 10 apps I've tried
by canphil83 on 2014/05/20 05:04
I needed a replacement for the stock Voice Memos app (iTunes started multiplying my Voice Memos recordings every time it synced). So I tried a new voice recording memo everyday for the last couple weeks. So far I like this ALON Dictaphone best. It has: the best quality of sound, options for varying levels of quality & formats, ease of use, and variety of syncing options (Google Drive, Dropbox, and others) It has other features some people my value, but the ones I've listed were particularly valuable to me. Definitely worth the money.
Confusing
by Cf mAine on 2017/05/10 18:25
Excellent at long recordings. Had a meeting 2 1/2 hours long recorded with no problem. Sound quality, excellent. Use of software, not very user-friendly. Trying to transcribe my notes hitting pause in between, brings me to the beginning. Attempting to use bookmarks, gives the option to name the bookmarks, I do, and bookmark names don't show up, just the times. Finding it a bit confusing. Took me a long time to figure out how to go from the recording screen to the list where I could find on my recordings and then to find all of the bookmarks. So, excellent to record and listen all at once, not so user-friendly to transcribe.
Awesome!
by o22o on 2015/02/23 19:54
I have MANY voice recorder apps but only use this one. It does everything I need it to. Records in lots of formats, can easily add an afterthought to a note anytime after recording it, can organize recordings into groups/folders which is a necessity when you have a LOT like me, the list goes on. Sure, it's not much to look at display-wise... I'd rather see an old-style meter w/needle moving as I record, like other apps, & some more eye-pleasing colors like tan with blue, black or red. Gets a 0 for it's display but 10 for it's content & that's what counts most. Best yet!
Great App and Support
by Hockeydad10x52 on 2015/01/23 16:20
Finally, a versatile app with thoughtful options on storing and organizing your files. Also, many apps don't allow you to import files from other applications. This one does! I like being able to review recordings of meeting notes on my phone and not have to carry a separate device like a recorder. Tech-support was great they got back with me immediately on my questions and were very thorough. I would really like them to add cuing to incrementally go forward and backward in recordings.
Flipping amazing!
by Tdog272727 on 2015/03/04 16:33
It is solid and does as advertised. The only drawback to me is deleting files is not obvious or easy like in many other applications. I believe it to be more user challenges than product design. I go to many meetings and seminars and see people frantically taking notes missing the essence of what is being said. I sit back and give it the attention it deserves and simply click play to refresh on what is needed. Quality is impressive considering the distance some of these speakers are at.
Fantastic App!
by Razzle Matilda on 2016/03/20 16:08
Great to record long meetings or short memos to myself. I especially love it during training meetings, so I can go back over my notes while listening, and see exactly what I missed, or play back any time I have a question. I can share the files with others on my team, so we ALL have the same recording. It's a great tool for professionals, as well as for personal use. I wish I had this when my little girl did her singing performances for me-- I'd have a great CD to enjoy now!
Amazing..
by Tony Fuego on 2014/11/19 03:51
This is what apples (voice memo) should have been. The ability to jump to next recording by pressing the arrow and also list/recording loop is exactly what I needed.. Very important feature that I can't believe voice memos does not have. And iCloud backup. Extra silly 2 cents....The interface looks a tad bit childish as far as the Ui is concerned. But this is really a great app.. Make the buttons look a bit more professional and I'll give it 100 stars...
Super Note Taker is super
by ALON Dictaphone on 2015/10/27 19:44
Over the years, I have used several different note-taking apps for my extensive writing and reporting responsibilities, and this one is probably the best: I'm hedging a little because I've only used it now for about a week, however, that includes a keynote address and a day-long conference. It performed flawlessly, and I particularly made good use of the footnotes capabilities. Later, I found the ability to regulate the speed of playback very helpful for transcription purposes.
Much better, than iphone voice recorder, BUT needs some improvements
by Otsyrul on 2014/03/28 03:41
Great recorded sound quality, categories are useful, transfer between apps is great. Here are some downsides: When increased gain level, it adds distortion to sound, when sound is too loud. Needs realtime mic normalization. The cut, paste interface is hard to use. It hard to set cursors precisely at right position. It would be better, if bookmarks could be utilized for it, so we can preset section to be cut or worked on. Otherwise it's almost useless. It would be great to add convertion between mp3 and wav.
Great Recording App
by Luigi2k11 on 2015/09/05 04:41
I needed a simple App to record the intro and outros of my podcast and this just fit the bill, it allows tons of different ways to transfer the files over as I need to merge them with the actual interviews and recordings and I'm able to match the quality of the Audio from my desktop. maybe too many bells and wistles for what I need but I rather have the options than having to buy multiple apps for the options.
Works good especially from Apple Watch
by Scwoz on 2015/10/02 15:48
It takes s masters degree in engineering to figure out how to get everything to work but then it works good and has replaced my mini recorder. It could use a longer recording period because I rarely record conversations under 45 minutes. I do not like the constant request to be rated every time you open it or change something. Dump it guys if you want 5 stars. I took off 1 for that hassle.
To Clarify
by Elari O. on 2015/02/18 16:53
For anyone looking for a program that transcribes audio to (written) notes, or if you're looking for the ability to dictate notes, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, this is NOT IT. I just purchased this and already have two recording programs that work beautifully. So I'm going to rate this a 3, because I can't leave a review without assigning a star rating. I want to clarify that is is not a true dictation program, it is an *audio*. recording program with a good filing system and editing abilities. It does not transcribe as indicated by the dictaphone name.
Fantastic Recording APP!
by ntherese90 on 2015/08/02 02:07
I am currently sending my recordings from another app - it had issues with saving & that is the main purpose. User-friendly & the FULL APP is affordable & has everything I need! I am using this particularly because of a NASTY NEIGHBOR - police need evidence, next time she is messed up & yelling absurdities at me out her window or in the hall - I got my Evidence! So easy & clear. Good for remaming & settings for quality too!
Very reliable!
by Think positive :) on 2015/01/17 07:23
I had a different app that I liked, but it crashed so I tried this one. It has been much more reliable, and allows different playback speeds which is great if you have a professor who is a slow talker. I like that you can rename the files with pretty long names, and it organizes them. I liked it so much that I upgraded for more features. Highly recommended!
Excellent
by EMM386 on 2014/05/09 02:33
The UI was hard to navigate, but once I figured it out it was great. I don't use this for dictation. I use it to record band rehearsals. Love the ability to adjust recording level. I had a recording app on my iPod touch 4th gen but it couldn't take advantage of new hardware in my iPad Air. Still not near the quality as my Zoom H2, but it's ok for capturing an idea or getting a rough take to practice with.
Good useful app, legit review
by Mralways1 on 2015/05/22 00:19
It's a very useful tool, you just have to take the time to learn. If your actually good with maneuvering through tech stuff, it shouldn't be any trouble at all... Import and export features are top notch, above and beyond any other app I've worked with (audioshare is nice too). Makes adding voice overs to audio, very easy, which was a difficult app to find.

Stable, somewhat non-intuitive
by Kapo10 on 2018/02/04 20:52
This program works well once you get used to its non-standard buttons and user experience. I think with a few tweaks they could make it something that is in alignment with normal apps. The instructions could also probably use some expansion, for instance to make it easier to understand how to switch to MP3 output rather than WAV. Finally, the ceaseless demands for a Review were pretty annoying, and I’m sure tends to depress the ultimate ratings people give. It would be smarter if they asked less frequently.

My honest opinion
by Theos3 on 2017/09/04 16:25
To date I've downloaded quite a few recording apps for recording bible class at church and while many gave me quality recordings the level of that quality was always dependent upon my distance from the speaker.BUT, with this app the quality has been good even from my furthest seating position. To me this is the best feature even though there are many more.
FTP sync
by SRQ.S on 2017/08/31 00:30
After you have synced the file to server, no way to know which one has been synced. There should be option of color change or check mark or something else to know some of the files have been synced and some are pending. Clicking support link on their website goes to middle of nowhere.
Stable, flexible & feature rich
by scubnubbic on 2017/08/12 03:14
This is the only stable app I have found in the App Store that enables you to record at 44.1 kHz or higher and 32 bit depth. It also gives you the ability to bypass the iPhones internal audio circuitry. I have literally tried every recording application in the App Store and this is the best. There are no longer other features to buy to have the full Alon app. There are also now no advertisements. I use this app on a iPhone 6s+ and have not experienced any of the problems mentioned in the other reviews. I use this app with my Shure MV88 stereo mic for impresive CD-quality music recording. With the Shure Motiv app running in the background and set up the the way you choose the Alon app Records with the settings in both apps when the MV 88 is used. This is an excellent combination. Customer support is the best I've encountered.

Being asked to rate the app is annoying
by amypacemaker on 2017/06/29 19:09
The app is fine, but you will be asked to rate the app every single time you open it, and then multiple times throughout the day. I am using this to dictate patient charts while our regular system is down, and I get a new "rate our app" pop up after EVERY dictation. That's about 20 times per day. For $5 purchase price, I expect not to have a ton of pop-up messages during use. They are very frustrating.

Best recording App
by yoFLO on 2017/01/10 03:46
Solid integration to upload to many source apps after recording. Best feature in my opinion!!
Nice app.

Stop nagging to rate
by QuintaRuban on 2017/01/06 16:17
Can only hope that by writing a review, the app will stop nagging me to review the app.
Superb!
by Quickology on 2017/01/04 16:38
Way to go! Awesome recording App. I use it to keep lists and for reminders.
Love it
by SteveHHMD on 2017/01/02 15:35
I use it for medical dictation. Awesome!
Features keep getting better
by JP Paz Soldan on 2016/12/22 21:57
... as user interface keeps getting more confusing. Recent additions of notes, pictures and the ability to append a new recording to an existing are great! Merge 2 recordings, add marks Deleted recordings need to be deleted again, otherwise they don't disappear. Export to Dropbox, Google Drive, Evernote, mail, Gmail, etc
Pretty Good
by Quixotic9 on 2016/12/20 06:00
I like being able to upload to Dropbox. Good set of tools, also.
Great app works well

Great! But..
by B_rent on 2016/12/10 15:12
Great app! But it constantly bugs you to write a review until you do.
Didn't really feel like writing this review!
by Papillonrev on 2016/11/27 13:12
I like this app but I was coerced by its creators into writing this review. Their request for a review has two options, 1. Rate the app now or 2. Remind me later. The "Remind me later" option means that they will keep on asking you to rate them over and over again, ad infinitum. So, I'm really rating them only to stop that annoying little white window from popping up practically every time I open the app. For me, this is a five star app, but until they add a third option of "don't ask me again" as most other apps have in their review requests, I will take away one star for their lack of know-how and another for not knowing the meaning of finesse.
Great app

Use all the time. Love it!
by Eng.user on 2016/10/12 07:58
I teach piano, and to help students practice ensemble music, I record and send both the Primo and Secondo parts. I use the metronome so they will know exactly when to come in. After recording, it is very easy to type in the name of each part along with the metronome tempo. It is just as easy to send directly to them through email.
Seems like it will do what I need
by Noface2 on 2016/09/06 01:15
I used this for a couple of weeks and it worked pretty well. However now it constantly crashes 10 seconds after start up. It is now useless to me. What I need is for an app to record in MP3 and to automatically update to dropbox. It seems like it will do that nicely. I am writing this review to get rid of the pesky reminder to write a review, which I don't need when I'm about to record.
Just downloaded it

Trustworthy Dictaphone
by HollyGordonPhoto on 2016/07/09 15:48
My biggest concern when I'm dictating is that, if I'm not looking at the app, can I trust it to keep recording. I often dictate for over 30 minutes without checking to see if I'm still being recorded and this app has never failed me. That is a wonderful thing.
Lots of great functions but interface not smooth
by Gabe0910 on 2016/06/23 11:25
Best dictation app I've used (so far).
Very good app
by Shuffle Board on 2016/06/20 06:45
Love the Dropbox synch. Would be five stars except for the pestering prompts to rate the app, and the fact that hey do not give you an option not to rate it at all. It gets pretty obnoxious...
Buy the $5 version
by Justindee12345 on 2016/06/19 21:18
If you want it as a free AP you're wasting your time. Buy the 4.99 version and so far it works well but it's only been 3 minutes.
Lots of great features but memory hog
by WeedsWork on 2016/06/16 15:08
This app has almost every feature you might want in a memo app. I've tried lots of them (about 15) and this has the best combination of features and usability. I've noticed, for instance, that sound quality when recording memos can be a problem with other apps but the sound quality here is great. Drawbacks: The user interface is a bit clunky and outdated but doesn't take too long to master. Also, this app is a huge memory hog, which is the main reason I don't use it nearly as often as I would otherwise.
Awesome app

Alon recording was my second choice up until now. With today's update you got number one spot. I like the additional new features especially the start recording on launch. This was a badly missing feature. Thanks and keep up the good work. I recommend this app to everyone.
Safety meeting minutes , great

by Razzle Matilda on 2016/03/20 16:08
Great to record long meetings or short memos to myself. I especially love it during training meetings, so I can go back over my notes while listening, and see exactly what I missed, or play back any time I have a question. I can share the files with others on my team, so we ALL have the same recording. It's a great tool for professionals, as well as for personal use. I wish I had this when my little girl did her singing performances for me-- I'd have a great CD to enjoy now!

Not acceptable to be asked to review on every launch
by mmmmisha on 2016/02/27 00:16
The program itself might be perfectly fine, but it's ridiculous to be asked to do a review every time you launch the program. And I have paid version no less. Very annoying!

I recently downloaded and installed ALON Dictaphone. While it did take some effort to learn how to use all of the built in functions for this app, it was worth the time and effort to do that. I regularly record various things that I have read. This includes short stories, plays, news, and anything that I want to listen to while driving in my car. I have other audio apps that I have used in the past few years, but the ALON Dictaphone has some unusual qualities that I think places this app at the top of the list. Quality of sound, organization of files by category, ability to alter the audio files as well as the option to add written notes to each file, and the ease of synching to iCloud, Dropbox, or a number of different ways to move files back and forth between devices, are just some of the things I especially like. Perhaps the most important “like” I have is the considerate and helpful support from the developers. When I had questions, they not only supplied answers, but gave extra suggestions and information on how to do a task. I give this app a 5 star rating.
so far exceptional in more ways than I care to take the to write except one thing...
by Magical Marty on 2016/01/03 23:14
... Uploading a large file via email, it offers to break it up... again exceptional. What is less than exceptional is having to babysit this process for each section of file telling it to send it to the same address for each email. A bit of code could prevent this horrendous waste of time. It breaks it up into 1mb sections... so with a 147mb file... you get the idea.
Great App
by Grammy2bry on 2015/12/23 13:58
I use this app to record medical notes in a mobile clinic setting & then transcribe when I am through seeing patients, works quite well, a real time saver.
Good app, but a little confusing
by Joblowhatayaknow on 2015/12/18 02:44
This is a quality app, I only use two apps for audio notes and this is one of them. It can be a little confusing at times, the layout felt a little odd at first. However, as I am using the app more nowadays, things are starting to fall in place.

Super Note Taker is super
by ALON Dictaphone on 2015/10/27 19:44
Over the years, I have used several different note-taking apps for my extensive writing and reporting responsibilities, and this one is probably the best: I'm hedging a little because I've only used it now for about a week, however, that includes a keynote address and a day-long conference. It performed flawlessly, and I particularly made good use of the footnotes capabilities. Later, I found the ability to regulate the speed of playback very helpful for transcription purposes.

Forced to give review
Stable, somewhat non-intuitive
by Kapo10 on 2018/02/04 20:52
This program works well once you get used to its non-standard buttons and user experience. I think with a few tweaks they could make it something that is in alignment with normal apps. The instructions could also probably use some expansion, for instance to make it easier to understand how to switch to MP3 output rather than WAV. Finally, the ceaseless demands for a Review were pretty annoying, and I’m sure tends to depress the ultimate ratings people give. It would be smarter if they asked less frequently.
Stable, flexible & feature rich
by scubnubbic on 2017/08/12 03:14
This is the only stable app I have found in the App Store that enables you to record at 44.1 kHz or higher and 32 bit depth. It also gives you the ability to bypass the iPhones internal audio circuitry. I have literally tried every recording application in the App Store and this is the best. There are no longer other features to buy to have the full Alon app. There are also now no advertisements. I use this app on a iPhone 6s+ and have not experienced any of the problems mentioned in the other reviews. I use this app with my Shure MV88 stereo mic for impresive CD-quality music recording. With the Shure Motiv app running in the background and set up the the way you choose the Alon app Records with the settings in both apps when the MV 88 is used. This is an excellent combination. Customer support is the best I've encountered.
Good but could be easier to do edits
by JTS5641 on 2020/02/17 19:59
For years I used Olympus dictation. It was a bit easier to edit and to switch from insert to overwrite mode.
Being asked to rate the app is annoying
by amypacemaker on 2017/06/29 19:09
The app is fine, but you will be asked to rate the app every single time you open it, and then multiple times throughout the day. I am using this to dictate patient charts while our regular system is down, and I get a new "rate our app" pop up after EVERY dictation. That's about 20 times per day. For $5 purchase price, I expect not to have a ton of pop-up messages during use. They are very frustrating.
Accessible and powerful!
by jcdjmac on 2020/05/02 00:32
This app is absolutely accessible and powerful!! Love it’s recording capabilities, especially it’s voice activated recording function. The overall accessibility is a win win for me and the blind community, it’s going to get better with every update. Works fully 100% with VoiceOver!! I love it, and it’s my go-to every day recorder!!
It's Awesome!
by Batgirl2011 on 2020/08/29 17:17
Very nice app. Use it to record class lectures for my students. It interfaces nicely with other apps (eg DropBox) for upload. Sound quality is good. While the recording dashboard is clear. The developers made some key improvements in its upgrades. My go to audio recording app these days.
Great little app for recording
by smedman on 2020/02/15 19:39
The UI takes a little getting used to but these guys have made a great app for recording lectures or whatever. Lots of integrations with cloud storage tools. They have responded to feedback and made improvements based on our email exchanges.
Basic functions are puzzling
by Missy4446 on 2020/01/02 05:05
I like the recorder. It has good sound and it allows me to slow the speed if I want to transcribe. However I am having issues with very basic functions. I can’t play back and listen to the recording I select. Instead it scrolls to the top and only lets me play back the most recent one. I cannot find a manual, only what looks like an ad with photos.
Use it at work

FTP sync
by SRQ.S on 2017/08/31 00:30
After you have synced the file to server, no way to know which one has been synced. There should be option of color change or check mark or something else to know some of the files have been synced and some are pending. Clicking support link on their website goes to middle of nowhere.
Excellent - love it

by Arturiux on 2014/07/20 08:58
I am a profesional voice actor, a creative writer and a musician. Mobile audio recording plays an important role in my life. I've been looking for years for an app that gives me the flexibility of high quality recording, idea recording and editing tool all in one. This is close to be perfect for me. It has replaced 6 of my previous recording apps already! I can record high quality auditions and send them to my agent in both of the industry standards .WAV and MP3. Kudos for that. I can record ideas very easily while I'm driving or away from my desk and organize them later for easy review. That's one of the big pluses of this app IMHO. I have used it also to record a guitar recital in combination with a Zoom iQ5 mic for iPhone 5 with outstanding results. The only things missing for me are: 1) Ability to monitor recording with headsets. (The iQ5 mic has an input jack for headsets but it requires the app to allow monitoring which I don't think this app has or it is so hidden I haven't found it yet.) 2) Ability to display text on screen to read while recording. I know this is too much to ask but just think how many rappers, poets, actors, teachers, narrators etc. would benefit from this. (check an app called iSaidWhat? to see what I'm talking about) Other than that very good app. Keep it up.

Better than 10 apps I've tried
by canphil83 on 2014/05/20 05:04
I needed a replacement for the stock Voice Memos app (iTunes started multiplying my Voice Memos recordings every time it synced). So I tried a new voice recording memo everyday for the last couple weeks. So far I like this ALON Dictaphone best. It has: the best quality of sound, options for varying levels of quality & formats, ease of use, and variety of syncing options (Google Drive, Dropbox, and others) It has other features some people my value, but the ones I've listed were particularly valuable to me. Definitely worth the money.
Confusing
by Cf mAine on 2017/05/10 18:25
Excellent at long recordings. Had a meeting 2 1/2 hours long recorded with no problem. Sound quality, excellent. Use of software, not very user-friendly. Trying to transcribe my notes hitting pause in between, brings me to the beginning. Attempting to use bookmarks, gives the option to name the bookmarks, I do, and bookmark names don't show up, just the times. Finding it a bit confusing. Took me a long time to figure out how to go from the recording screen to the list where I could find on my recordings and then to find all of the bookmarks. So, excellent to record and listen all at once, not so user-friendly to transcribe.
Awesome!
by o22o on 2015/02/23 19:54
I have MANY voice recorder apps but only use this one. It does everything I need it to. Records in lots of formats, can easily add an afterthought to a note anytime after recording it, can organize recordings into groups/folders which is a necessity when you have a LOT like me, the list goes on. Sure, it's not much to look at display-wise... I'd rather see an old-style meter w/needle moving as I record, like other apps, & some more eye-pleasing colors like tan with blue, black or red. Gets a 0 for it's display but 10 for it's content & that's what counts most. Best yet!
Great App and Support
by Hockeydad10x52 on 2015/01/23 16:20
Finally, a versatile app with thoughtful options on storing and organizing your files. Also, many apps don't allow you to import files from other applications. This one does! I like being able to review recordings of meeting notes on my phone and not have to carry a separate device like a recorder. Tech-support was great they got back with me immediately on my questions and were very thorough. I would really like them to add cuing to incrementally go forward and backward in recordings.
Flipping amazing!
by Tdog272727 on 2015/03/04 16:33
It is solid and does as advertised. The only drawback to me is deleting files is not obvious or easy like in many other applications. I believe it to be more user challenges than product design. I go to many meetings and seminars and see people frantically taking notes missing the essence of what is being said. I sit back and give it the attention it deserves and simply click play to refresh on what is needed. Quality is impressive considering the distance some of these speakers are at.
Fantastic App!

by Tony Fuego on 2014/11/19 03:51
This is what apples (voice memo) should have been. The ability to jump to next recording by pressing the arrow and also list/recording loop is exactly what I needed.. Very important feature that I can't believe voice memos does not have. And iCloud backup. Extra silly 2 cents....The interface looks a tad bit childish as far as the Ui is concerned. But this is really a great app.. Make the buttons look a bit more professional and I'll give it 100 stars...

Much better, than iphone voice recorder, BUT needs some improvements
by Otsyrul on 2014/03/28 03:41
Great recorded sound quality, categories are useful, transfer between apps is great. Here are some downsides: When increased gain level, it adds distortion to sound, when sound is too loud. Needs realtime mic normalization. The cut, paste interface is hard to use. It hard to set cursors precisely at right position. It would be better, if bookmarks could be utilized for it, so we can preset section to be cut or worked on. Otherwise it's almost useless. It would be great to add convertion between mp3 and wav.

I needed a simple App to record the intro and outros of my podcast and this just fit the bill, it allows tons of different ways to transfer the files over as I need to merge them with the actual interviews and recordings and I'm able to match the quality of the Audio from my desktop. maybe too many bells and wistles for what I need but I rather have the options than having to buy multiple apps for the options.
Works good especially from Apple Watch

It takes s masters degree in engineering to figure out how to get everything to work but then it works good and has replaced my mini recorder. It could use a longer recording period because I rarely record conversations under 45 minutes. I do not like the constant request to be rated every time you open it or change something. Dump it guys if you want 5 stars. I took off 1 for that hassle.
To Clarify

For anyone looking for a program that transcribes audio to (written) notes, or if you're looking for the ability to dictate notes, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking, this is NOT IT. I just purchased this and already have two recording programs that work beautifully. So I'm going to rate this a 3, because I can't leave a review without assigning a star rating. I want to clarify that is is not a true dictation program, it is an *audio*. recording program with a good filing system and editing abilities. It does not transcribe as indicated by the dictaphone name.
Fantastic Recording APP!

I am currently sending my recordings from another app - it had issues with saving & that is the main purpose. User-friendly & the FULL APP is affordable & has everything I need! I am using this particularly because of a NASTY NEIGHBOR - police need evidence, next time she is messed up & yelling absurdities at me out her window or in the hall - I got my Evidence! So easy & clear. Good for remaming & settings for quality too!
Very reliable!

I had a different app that I liked, but it crashed so I tried this one. It has been much more reliable, and allows different playback speeds which is great if you have a professor who is a slow talker. I like that you can rename the files with pretty long names, and it organizes them. I liked it so much that I upgraded for more features. Highly recommended!
Excellent

The UI was hard to navigate, but once I figured it out it was great. I don't use this for dictation. I use it to record band rehearsals. Love the ability to adjust recording level. I had a recording app on my iPod touch 4th gen but it couldn't take advantage of new hardware in my iPad Air. Still not near the quality as my Zoom H2, but it's ok for capturing an idea or getting a rough take to practice with.
Good useful app, legit review

It's a very useful tool, you just have to take the time to learn. If your actually good with maneuvering through tech stuff, it shouldn't be any trouble at all... Import and export features are top notch, above and beyond any other app I've worked with (audioshare is nice too). Makes adding voice overs to audio, very easy, which was a difficult app to find.
