It does tape record

I too was puzzled, but it does work as a tape recorder. One needs to press the red square and the play and stop directions are indicated.
The sound isn't heard, as far as my initial foray, unless you listen with earphone, unlike songs that even without playing through a microphone
can be heard by clicking on them. So, it does perform as a Taperecorder. The app developer I emailed responded promptly and
I think it will do exactly what it advertises, once I take the time to go over his instructions and get the hang of it's particulars.
I did speak a test file into the iPad, and listening to a replay, it sounds very clear, loud and crisp.

This one does the trick

All I wanted to do was record a friend singing. Nothing fancy. No mixing, editing, or sampling. After trying two other apps that were way more trouble to figure out, this one did exactly what I needed it to do, and was simple to understand. It does exactly what the name implies.

All I wanted to do was to be able to use my iPhone as a tape recorder. Once it started taping, I couldn't get it to stop or rewind or playback. It just kept taping. I finally figured out how to just remove it from my apps. Oh well, it wasn't a big investment. Maybe other people are more techie and can make it work for them.
