+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Notability has received an update, adding in some usability improvements and more.

You can find specific details below, but the biggest changes include being able to link typing, drawing, photos, and handwriting to your recorded audio clips, as well as improved navigation tools that make scrolling through text and audio a lot easier.

We had an opportunity to review the app a while back; Notability is available (on sale currently) $2.99.

Everything that you add is now linked to your audio recording — just tap play and watch your handwriting, typing, drawings, and photos come to life. This visually rich presentation of your note provides an awesome new way to review your notes or even to create lessons or instructional notes for students or colleagues.

The new navigation tool provides an easy and powerful way to review your notes. Scroll through your notes while preventing stray marks. Or follow along with your audio and tap anywhere to jump to a specific point in your recording.

Audio recordings can also be played back at several different speeds to help you speed up review. You can also quickly rewind 10 seconds to hear an important part of the recording again.

Also, you can now select a typed word and view a definition.

Take note everyone, as there is a new update for Notability! The app has gone universal, giving you access to it on all iOS devices. It’s also noteworthy to mention that the update has added iCloud support which keeps your notes up to date on all iOS devices, and you’ll also notice a new look and feel for themes as well.

Make your voice be heard! Or perhaps your music as well. Whatever sounds you need to record, there’s an app to make that happen. Here are four of our favorites.

iSaidWhatiSaidWhat?!: I’ve used probably 6 different iOS devices over the past 3 years, and the list of apps that I’ve installed on all of them is short; iSaidWhat?! is on all of them. This audio recorder is perfect for recording audio anywhere and everywhere from the iPhone or the iPad (though it’s not universal, it still works), with the ability to trim files down. But really, the reason why it’s so great? It’s possible to reduce the gain on the mic, so in particularly noisy situations, it’s possible to prevent audio clipping. It’s perfect for loud situations, and makes it the app that I keep using. It could use a modern update, but it’s still great.

GarageBandGarageBand: Want to record some music? Why not use Apple’s mobile version of their famous music app? It supports recording through the mic port, including from third-party accessories like iRig for guitar, and external microphones. As well, there’s MIDI support for using devices like keyboards with the app. When it’s all arranged, the files can be exported to SoundCloud, to a desktop iTunes library, or even to Facebook and YouTube.

MixlrMixlr: Pre-recorded audio is for suckers. To paraphrase Bill O’Reilly: “We’ll do it live!” This app is perfect for that. Just fire up the app on iPhone, and start broadcasting over wifi or 3G/4G/LTE! Want to play music for strangers on the internet? Go for it! Want to start up a live podcast with friends? Sure! Just have random grumblings and rantings that need to be shared with people right now? This app is perfect for that as well. The audio can then be saved for posterity to SoundCloud, Mixcloud, or Dropbox. The revolution will be broadcast live!

AudioNoteAudioNote: Need to take some notes with the audio you record? This app is a perfect choice to use with it. You can record audio and type notes along with the recording. Best of all, it’s possible to tap on text and go right to that part of the recording. It’s great for transcription or taking notes in class. Plus, the app is universal, giving it an advantage over the similar Notability.
