A voice recording app that constantly throws away recorded audio doesn’t immdiately strike me as the most useful of apps. Fortunately, there’s a very important reason as to why Shiftcorder does precisely that. It’s an app that, much like fast recording camera apps, focuses on capturing moments in time.

We’ve all been there, especially those with children. An amazing thing is uttered but it’s too late, fumbling to turn the stock app on and the moment is gone. In Shiftcorder‘s case, the app constantly records audio while not taking up any of the iOS device’s storage space. Once something worthy of being kept is uttered, users can then just hit the save button and the last 30 seconds of audio can be saved. It’s as simple as that.

Configurable options are available with audio quality adjustable as well as shifting times of 30 or 60 seconds available. Wi-Fi sharing is particularly handy as it means users can download their recordings using an internet browser, making things very simple indeed.

Priced at $0.99, Shiftcorder sounds like an inexpensive way of capturing some memorable audio bites to me!
