How can I create an audio recording on my iPad?

Unlike the iPhone and iPod Touch, iPads don't come with the Voice Memos app pre-installed, and you can't download it from Apple's App Store. However, the App Store offers many free third-party voice memo apps that can be downloaded to your iPad.


Apps that have audio recording capabilities within include:

  • OneNote (Audio can be recorded and inserted as a sound file onto a page in OneNote)
  • Noteability (Audio recordings will automatically link to any notes that you take while recording. During playback, tap a word, sketch, or photo to hear what was said at that exact moment)
