AudioNote is on Android

Those of you who have been working with me recently will know that my colleague, Ness, and I have been enthusiastically, productively and efficiently using our iPads for recording and notating meetings. Whilst Ness has more extensive need for it with her contracts, I too have been impressed with AudioNote: a note-taking application with sound-recording function.

What sets AudioNote apart from other note-taking applications is its audio to highlighted text synchronisation capability, making minute-taking and reviewing so much quicker and easier.

I’ve got it on my list to complete a full review but in the meanwhile, I’m excited to say that AudioNote is now available on Android in both free lite and full paid version. The Android version still doesn’t have the pen drawing function but at least there’s now an app with voice and note sync!

The lite version, as it is on iOS, is limited to 5 minutes of audio but that’s long enough for those of you with ‘droid phones and tablets to give it a whirl.

This alleviates my concerns around plans I have to enhance the company workshop and project kits with cheap, dedicated tablets for fulfilling this purpose as I hadn’t found an Android equivalent. I think the price point of iPads for so specific a purpose is a little over-the-top. Pending a test on the Iconia, I’m seeing this becoming an essential tool in how my projects are run in the future and what advice I can give clients interested in productivity gains using technology.

Note: I use AudioNote as part of my toolkit, it’s not my primary store of notes. For that, I email the notes and recordings to Evernote where I compile all the files, emails and journal items (regardless of source device, OS or application) related to projects and other things I want to group and archive. I also use NotesPlus where I have a lot of diagrams with my notes because the auto-shape detection is very useful. And no, Notes Plus is still not available on Android.
