A two-in-one audio recording and note-taking tool for iOS and Mac
Noted has a unique note-taking premise as it’s a fully-integrated audio recording and note-taking app. This makes it ideal for anyone who needs to both record audio and make notes at the same time in lectures, meetings, and interviews. It’s available for iPhone, iPad, and Mac, with an Apple Watch version that allows you to record from your wrist.
This app is highly effective and easy to use. You simply create a new Notebook, which works like a folder, give it a title, add a new note to it, hit the record button to start the audio recording, then make notes using the text editor. This has a clean interface and allows you to do basic formatting, including highlighting. You can quickly and easily add a searchable time tag at any point during the recording. Within the text editor, there is also the option to snap a live photo, add an image from your camera roll, attach a document, and even create a quick sketch, complete with Apple Pencil support. Once you’re done, there are options to share and export both the audio and the notes.
Other functionality worthy of note is the ability to activate the app using Siri, the ability to sync across Mac, mobile, and Apple Watch, to pin Notebooks to the top of your list, and to search via hashtag.
