WOW! So useful! - I have been looking for an app that would record my professor's lecture yet organize it so I could find the right section of it and easily play it! This is it!! Just hit record and start taking your notes! Simple as that! Whenever you make a new section in your notes, the app will pair up the audio with your note! When you are reviewing your notes, you can easily select the right section of your note, and it will play that section of the lecture of your professor speaking! It could not be simpler! Armadillo comes with easy to follow guidelines and directions too. I love how you can put photos, web URL's, and time stamps in it! Thanks for making it easy to have the notes be turned into a PDF! Great for when studying for the Exams. Get this app!! It will be so useful for school!
World's *Worst* Note Taking App - I have been using audio note for awhile with great succes, but became frustrated with the app's lack of text formatting. So after searching for a new app that would let me sync an audio recording of the lecture with my professor's pdf of lecture slides/notes AND let me change font sizes/styles etc. I found Armadillo and (sadly) threw away $10 on an app I will never use. The key missing feature: you cannot import a pdf file as the background as you can with audio note. So while you can embed images/pdfs etc., it only adds them into your note with their own separate scroll bars. So you can't follow along with pdf/ppt slides and add notes to the individual parts of the pdf. Also there is a menu item for "preferences" that never allows you to open it or change any preferences, which is silly. There is also no way to export audio, so you're stuck in this app with no way to get what you recorded to another app or another person. Audio note allows you to export the audio to a WAV file, which is incredibly useful, and I can get my recorded lectures to classmates who missed that day. This app is definitely not for following along with a pdf file full of powerpoint slides, such as most students do in class these days. So I really have no idea what this app is even for. If adobe acrobat pro had an option to record/sync audio…then I would never need another crappy app like this or audio note ever again. Sigh.

Best So Far - This app is pretty great. It does exactly what it says it does, is easy to use & is handsome to boot. My only complaint is that you cannot format the document as you want or change the default format settings. The developers explain on their website this feature would be distracting. To which I would like to say “That’s why I am recording my lecture, dork. I know I have the attention span of a gnat.” In order to get around this I end up copying & pasting all lectures into a Pages document in order to format & print. If you aren’t a formatting nerd like me, or if it doesn’t bother you that the programmers are trying to restrict your inherent formatting freedom, I would say this would be a very good app for you. However, if you enjoy color-coding your notes or believe man should be free to choose his own default settings as god intended, keep looking.
Needs updating - It's a great app, for the most part. There are, however, several bugs which could use addressing. Other reviewers have mentioned them, but the text formatting could use improvement (and the weird alignment of tiered bullets), also the program could filter out tying noise, but I realize that might be a pretty tough feat.
love - love being able to record my professors while taking notes so that if i miss something, i can go back and listen/review. hearing yourself type is kind of annoying though but overral it’s a great app
Faltan afinar algunos detalles - La app en si es muy buena y práctica, valoro mucho el que permita tener acceso directo a los símbolos, marcar con resaltador ese mismo momento y que además insertes momentos de tiempo. Sin embargo las imágenes no se pueden modificar, no permite cargar documentos pdf ni presentaciones, que bueno todo esto no es el fin del mundo, y por último tiene una forma extraña de crear los párrafos. Saludos, Christian M.
Does the thing, but nothing else - This app will mark notes in your recording for you to go back to. It is great for that (and is the only app I’ve found that does it). It also helpfully rewinds 5 seconds from when you actually type record, to take into account typing speed and human processing time. This app will not: 1. Let you play the recording back at different speeds (would be extraordinarily nice for any recording app to do this). 2. Let you play the recording back in a different app (proprietary file format UGH if I’d known in advance I would have not purchased it) 3. Let you change the default formatting of your notes (it splits what you’re typing into multiple ‘pages’ when what you type goes on for too long. This is an example of skeuomorphic design I find baffling and annoying. Why on earth would I want ). Other downsides: The “record this moment” button is Cmd-1, which is SUPER CLOSE to Cmd-Q which will make the app quit. I have accidentally hit the wrong key several times while recording important meetings/events, and I am disappointed that the hot-key is not customizable, or farther away from this dramatically catastrophic error condition.
