Voice memos on your phone are useful for all kinds of things, such as notes, interviews, and other everyday tasks. Once you get the hang of its workings, a voice recorder app is hard to quit: it makes life so much easier and you get used to it almost immediately.

How To Record A Voice Memo

What is a voice memo? Of course, it’s the audio file you can play, or save, or move around, but there is more about the term. It implies speed and efficiency, as well as a certain degree of personalization. You can even say a memo is a message to yourself. Naturally, there are a multitude of ways to record a voice memo. First of all, you are going to need a voice recorder app, or a memo app, or a voice recorder online, or a digital recorder. This is where it gets interesting: these days, the sheer amount of options is overwhelming! A voice recorder like Senstone is your best bet in that you don’t have to look for your phone. To record a memo, the first step normally is to open your app of choice and tap the “record” button. To pause, tap it again. To stop and save the file, tap the “stop” button marked by a square. Alternatively, if you own a voice activated recorder, you can set it up to automatically start recording as soon as it detects a sound louder than a preset voice activation level and stop recording when the volume falls. The downside to this method is that sound detection can be unreliable. A simple background noise or a sudden change in distance or volume (moving around the room, whispering) might make the recorder switch off and miss something important. With Senstone, however, it all comes down to one press of the button on the device, and it will take care about the rest. This way, you can record your voice whenever and wherever you want.

How To Delete Part Of A Memo

Now and then, voice memos need some minor editing. Maybe, you want to cut out a fragment, or get rid of dead air – regardless, it’s easy to do so. Select the “Edit” option in the menu. You are going to be presented with a timeline of the audio file. Move two pointers on the timeline to mark the points where you want it to start and end. If you want to edit a transcribed memo in the Senstone app, just open it and tap the “Edit” option below the text. Apart from the contents of a memo, you can also edit the associated tags and location. To delete a memo, tap the “Delete” option at the very bottom of the screen.

Share A Voice Memo

After you’ve recorded something, you might need to know how to send the voice memo, and you can share it – either with somebody else or across your other devices. In case an app you’re sharing the file with doesn’t support the playback of other common audio formats, you might also need to know how to convert a voice memo to mp3. With Senstone, however, you might never need the conversion. To share a recording, tap a “Share” icon for the entry you would like to send. Then choose an app from the pop-up menu. You can also copy the transcript of your memo to the clipboard and paste it in any text field on the device. All in all, most sound recorder apps, from a free sound recorder by a college student to a top-notch paid suite, share the same basic principles and universal icons, such as a trash can for “delete” and a pencil for “edit”. Senstone is no exception, making it easy for anyone to jump right in and start using the app without having to read the manual. We hope this little article was helpful. Good luck!
