Erica Sadun Of TUAW Creates Third Party Voice Recorder For iPhone
One of the most under utilized features of the iPhone is the mic. Because there is no way to sync text back and forth between iPhones and computers (well, officially anyways) the next best option would’ve been a Widget that records sound inputs from the mic. While Apple hasn’t provided us with such a Widget Erica Sadun of TUAW has.
The Application is basic but is a huge improvement regarding third party Apps on the iPhone. What this App does is record all sound inputs from the mic into an Adaptive Multi-rate formatted file. While you can’t select the filename you want, the size of said file and how long the recording lasts is visible from the App.
I haven’t tried this Application out for myself as I cannot use the appropriate tools on my PowerPC based Mac Mini but I do suggest a word of caution, if you do not know what you are doing you could brick your iPhone and run the risk of iTunes being unable to restore it, your warranty could be voided as well.
If you would like more information on how to install this Application on your iPhone I recommend checking up on the TUAW comments and visiting the iPhone Dev Wiki.

I’m betting that “Erica” Sadun would appreciate not being called “Eric”. Mispelling is one thing, but gender-theft isn’t cool.
