ClearRecord – the ultimate voice recording App for your iPhone/iPad/iPod.
ClearRecord brings the unique feature of Ambient Noise Reduction (ANR), which allows user to record conversations in any harsh noisy environments like street, train, classroom or an airplane while still maintaining clear voice.

These unique features, combined with the ability to record in background, make ClearRecord a must have App for voice and audio recording.

In addition to unique noise reduction feature, ClearRecord supports voice notes features like voice tagging, editing and photo insertion, which help us remember the context of the discussion/recordings. With all these features supported makes ClearRecord the must have voice recorder App for students, journalists, transcribers, lawyers, doctors, educationalists and many more.

With already 1 million users ClearRecord establishes itself at the next must have app on the list, for both iOS and Android users.

What users are saying:

“Awesome app :) the noise reduction works great”
“Very useful app. Noise reduction is good. Literally turns the iPhone into a full-fledged voice recorder.”
“Sound quality is fab. It's simple easy to use one of the best out there. Very chuffed.”
“Automatic gain control acts perfectly levelling the loud sounds, even yelling a few inches from the microphone: no clipping, no distortion.”
“Excellent. This was also the only one I could find that had the functionality of being able to continually repeat a track.”
“I used it for the first time today to record an hour long lecture, and it functions so easily and smoothly. I sat in the middle of a very large lecture hall, and still, this app picked up the professor's voice very well. I love the noise reduction too! It really makes everything so crisp and clear!”

This app does its job well! Cuts out background noise when I try to record lectures in college. However, inconsistently it will record the audio in an unfamiliar playback format? It gives an error that is stated by other reviews.

Also- I use a Rode Videomic GO and it works wonderfully when this app actually works. Since not being able to rely on this app is a big Nono, it barely deserves this 2 star rating.

UPDATE: I think I've found a work around- Upload your file immediately to Dropbox after recording. It somehow has had 100% success playback since January. Once a recording didn't work, but playback through the Dropbox browser on my computer worker fine

Great Noise Reduction

I have had none of the problems the negative reviews claim. Clear clean recordings easily moved and reviewed. And ARCHIVED. If you leave critical files on a mobile device you court disaster. I haven't lost anything at all, but I secure recordings quickly, sometimes using the email feature, which zips automatically. That's how you treat mission critical files.

I use this professionally when setting up a real field recorder and high fidelity microphones is impractical. It WORKS with excellent NR using the built-in mic's of an iPhone. Produces hi-fi WAV files or AAC if you have space limitations.

I understand quick cutting clips in a rudimentary NLE is coming to the iPhone version. That's all that's basically missing.

I would like the added feature of directly sending files to the new multimedia Notes app and pay more for a voice activated set of features.

I have used this app for over one year and it worked fine until a major upgrade was installed. Since then, this app has been unreliable. I record choir rehearsals weekly and listen to the recorded rehearsals for practicing on my own. Numerous times I have had a recording simply disappear. It will show that recording on the list, but trying to open it causes the app to close. When I open the app again, it asks if I wish to report the problem. I have reported it many times. I have waited on a fix for this app for months and am finally giving up and using another app for recording.
