nFinity is using QuickVoice, a voice recorder for Macs and PCs, as a lure to nab buyers for its new iPhone version called QuickVoice PRO Recorder. QuickVoice is usually $15.00 but it’s free with when you buy the $0.99 app.
What you want is a voice recorder that delivers decent audio and does everything a virtual voice recorder can do, that much is a given. Add the ability to transfer files via iTunes, Wi-Fi or email, and you'll move up a notch on the ladder. Now, throw in a free desktop app, and you might be on to something.
That's what QuickVoice PRO Recorder aims to do, although not as well as some apps.
Shuttling your voice recordings between handheld and desktop and voice mailing them aren't that much of a big deal. Several apps feature similar capabilities such as Griffin Tech's iTalk and Bottle Rocket's Voxie Pro Recorder.
QuickVoice PRO Recorder works best in conjunction with its desktop app. The iPhone version is limited compared to many other apps and not as visually pleasing to my eyes (it’s plain).
Importing a voice recording from QuickVoice for iPhone to the desktop app is easy: Launch QuickVoice, select “Import” under the “File” menu and the rest is taken care of. The road from handheld to desktop passes through iTunes and you’ll be alerted to run a backup first.
QuickVoice, the desktop app, features one-click recording, voice email, voice reminders, audio stickies and other useful features.
With so many voice recording apps in the App Store (there must be at least 50) it's impossible for me to recommend one over the other. The best I can do is tell you is to assess your needs first and then find the app that suits — you'll have plenty to choose from.
QuickVoice PRO Recorder is only $0.99 and it doesn't get cheaper than that for two apps, so I think it's worth a try.
