In meetings, lectures, and interviews, SoundNote is the finest tool for taking notes. You won’t ever have to worry about missing a vital detail because it records audio and tracks what you type and draw. To skip to the appropriate time in the audio during playback, simply tap a word. SoundNote will do this for you.

• Create rapid sketches with SoundNote’s capable sketching tool. Editing them is also simple. You can pick a drawing by tapping it once, or you can select a single stroke by tapping twice. It can then be moved by dragging it to the desired location or by selecting “Delete” to delete it. Click and scroll with two fingers.

Student use of SoundNote is ideal. Rest assured that SoundNote has your back if you ever doze off in class. In order to help you fill in the blanks, SoundNote will play the audio you recorded while you were awake when you tap the text you wrote there.

A useful tool for journalists is SoundNote. Ever needed to quickly scroll over the entire recording of an interview to figure out what you missed during a key detail? To hear what you missed during that section of the interview, simply tap a word in SoundNote.

• Share your text, drawings, and audio notes once you’re done by emailing them to someone else or saving them directly to your Mac or PC. An hour of high-quality audio is only 25MB in size when it is recorded in the common M4A format for audio notes.

SoundNote reviews

Multitasking, me? Nah! The one thing I can't do in meetings is take minutes and participate in any meaningful way. With soundnote, I can record the meeting and finger or stylus write bookmark style notes. Then when you play it back and tap the bookmark, bang, there you are, right where you were when you wrote it. This app has changed my working life and made post meeting report making waaaay more accurate and quick. 10 stars for this! iTunes export (that exports in soundnote format for moving between ipads and backup etc) and the ability to use a linked iPhone as a remote mic.. Well, that would get you 20 stars;)

It works I downloaded this app and tested it on a tv programme about the history of opera, as if I were taking notes in a lecture hall. It worked perfectly, and playing back particular parts of the programme was easy. The only difficulty was my lack of speed typing skills on the iPad. Wish I had downloaded the app a few days earlier and used it to record talks given at a work training course.

Works well and is reliable Having tried (and failed) to take text notes along side audio in Evernote (it crashes and can only store 20m sections) I turned to Soundnote. It just works - really well and integrates with drop box. Really, really impressed. If I was being greedy I'd ask for a VU meter and some basic formatting tools. If I was being really greedy I'd ask for outlining tools and an export to Word's notebook format. Great work!
