The minimalist audio recorder Just Press Record couldn’t be easier to use (the name says it all). And with Apple Watch, you can start recording with a single tap, right from your wrist.

Simply add the Just Press Record complication to your favorite Apple Watch face, then press the circular record button. This launches the app and starts a new recording with a single tap. It’s a handy way to capture a voice memo, lecture, or fleeting melody with the mic on your Apple Watch—no iPhone required.

Functions in the Apple Watch app are color-coded: Red is for recording. Swipe over to the green section to review your audio.

Just Press Record syncs your audio clips across your devices, and the iPhone app can automatically transcribe them and display a text preview. Search the transcripts to quickly find the recording you need.

There’s even an easy-to-use editor in the iPhone app for trimming dead airtime.

But Just Press Record’s coolest feature is its most basic: With Apple Watch, this audio recorder is hands-down the quickest draw in the land.
