Good recordings; difficult transfer...

I used the iTalk App with a recording and the outcome was very surprising for a free app. The recording was actually very clear and crisp which I appreciated very much.

However when I went to transfer it to a computer there was no button to export it there. I looked it up and it came up with either using iTunes or iTalk Sync. I thought it was a little confusing have to use an external app in order to get the audio file off.

I tried iTunes and the tab labeled App did not appear under my phone. I couldn’t figure out why so I went to my second option which was iTalk Sync.

Now I’m a little uneasy when downloading weird or unknown files to my computer. I’m mostly worried that a virus might make an appearance, maybe I’m just paranoid... Anyways I searched iTalk Sync and multiple links popped up for download. I didn’t know which one was fake or which one was real so I just didn’t download anything.

I’m stuck with a great recording on the iTalk app with no means to transfer it😅If an export option was added this app would be a whole lot better. Or if I found out why iTunes isn’t working or which iTalk Sync app to download this might make my rating lot better...

“This app hasn’t received enough ratings to display a summary?” WHAT THE?

Something must be very wrong with the App Stores’ rating system. I say this because I’ve owned this GREAT app from Griffin for at least 7-8 years, and I can honestly say this a perfect recorder in every way — it’s super simple to operate, gives you 3 choices of recording quality, and also allows the user to email (as well as text) the file. Clearly, the App Store is currently completely mired in over-selection for apps, and I’m sure there are comparable recorder apps — yet all I can provide is a solid 5-Star rating for iTalk. It’s hard to believe how this app is as great as it is even without paying for the Premium Version; I’d gladly pay the couple extra bucks for the upgrade if I used it more than I do — I mainly use it for doctor visits so I can keep an accurate record of the usual information overload I often face.

I don’t know why it’s SO difficult to find in the App Store, but all I can think is that this great app is buried among literally hundreds of recorder apps. Griffin Technology is a quality outfit, and this app deserves praise IMO, and sure gets my vote!

Researcher on the Hunt ,


This app is great for recording interviews and whatever else you need it for. I started using it because I was doing research one summer and recorded interviews from the Apple memos app and they would randomly delete or cut in half and it was so frustrating. This app doesn’t do that but it also doesn’t allow you to directly transfer any recording from your phone either. In fact, when I tried to transfer it it asked me to download the premium app which doesn’t seem to exist. So I had to google a way to transfer my files for my research and it did allow me to access my recordings from the app in the file sharing iTunes tool but I had to connect my phone to my laptop and it was pretty inconvenient.
