A very easy to use audio recorder.

TwistedWave allows you to save your audio in one of many formats, such as WAV, AIFF, CAF and AAC, ALAC, FLAC and MP3.

You can export or send your audio through iTunes file sharing or by email.

It is possible to unlock full editing functionality, as well as more export options, such as FTP, Dropbox,, SoundCloud, or the browser sharing to download files on a computer.

Once both functionalities have been unlocked with in-app purchases, "TwistedWave Recorder" and "TwistedWave Audio Editor" offer the same feature set.

The Best Feature Suddenly Disappeared

I would definitely give this a five star until today. I went in to edit my audio and all of a sudden the main function I have been using and what led me to purchase the app has totally disappeared. The function enabled me to choose a microphone sound which has been an incredible feature of this app. Now its gone and in its place is something called Audio Master which it says you have to purchase????? What is this all about? I don’t want to even use Twisted Wave if this feature is gone.

Reliable field recorder

I use this app to record band practices and song ideas. It doesn’t have the best user interface, but once you’re used to it, it works. And works great. The post processing options are as good as any you’d expect to use on a smart phone.

I’ve been using this app for over four years and haven’t found a compelling reason to use anything else. It does what I need it to do between playing back ideas and sharing audio files.

Affordable and functional!

Excellent if you understand what it does and how it works

Instant loading makes it my favorite audio app for iOS. It’s the only one I trust for live performance.

I’m referring to the Audio Editor version. This includes all of the functionality of the free (but limited) Recorder.

I do not recommend this app for recording with iOS microphones such as the Zoom iQ or the Shure MV88. The mics’ proprietary apps allow direct control of many of the microphones’ features from the software. Understandably, TwistedWave cannot do this—no matter, this is the app you use to edit those files in iOS.

Moving files among my Mac, iPads and iPhone is very easy via iTunes and email. ICloud support would be nice but not necessary. I’ve not tried Dropbox with TwistedWave.

I wish that I could lock a file to prevent accidental editing—that would be a most welcome feature.
