Wave Soft has released eXtra Voice Recorder 2.0 for Mac OS X (10.6 and higher), an update to their Productivity app that lets users record and organize audio files. It costs US$9.99 and is available worldwide exclusively through the Mac App Store in the Productivity category.
Accessible via the menu bar, eXtra Voice Recorder offers audio recording, hot key control, categorization and search tools for recordings, audio editing, adding comments, recording without pauses, audio markers, continuing previous recordings, email of audio, meta tag notes, export to MP3 or AAC, and Dropbox compatibility. Users can adjust the app to stop recording when they stop talking, eliminating long pauses.
What’s more, users can add several layers of text and subtext to help identify recordings, as well as content within recordings. Each recording can be given a title and there’s a large text field, Description, with enough room for a detailed summary. Titles appear on a scrolling list that can be separated by categories. Within the recording itself, users can click during or after recording to create a Marker, which brings up a yellow Note field. Titles, descriptions, and notes are all keyword searchable.
