Plum Amazing has come up with an application that turns your iPhone into a digital audio recorder and tags sound files with photos and text. Not too much thought needed on the name though, as the company has plumped for Plum Record.
Plum Record is the company’s second iPhone application, and Plum Amazing reckons it is ideal to capture all the interesting and important sounds in our lives.
“Wouldn’t it be nice to record them conveniently on your ever present cell phone? Now with Plum Record and the Apple iPhone you can,” an official statement said.
So, what does the software offer? Well, according to Plum Amazing you can: “Easily record interviews, lectures, songs, shopping lists, medical notes, to do lists, bird calls, legal notes, environmental sounds, meetings, lyrics, car sounds (to play for Clik and Clak on Car Talk), reminders, ideas, audio books, diary entries, your childs first words, singing, instrumentals, street musicians, comedy, sermons, book clubs, choirs, news, podcasts, science notes, observations, the list goes on and on.”
As we mentioned, sounds can be tagged with photos and text, with the possibility to add multiple tags at different locations in a sound file.
These tags can then act like bookmarks allowing you to jump to different sections of the sound file instantly.
Once you have your sounds you can transfer them using the free Plum Record Server for the Mac, available on the company’s website. Windows and Linux versions are “coming soon”.
