Pocket Voice Recorder
If you’re in the market for a freeware sound recorder that doesn’t assault the user with tons of configuration options, Pocket Voice Recorder may be quite an appealing product.
The application has been designed to work with microphones or any other input devices, providing just a limited number of configuration options and a very simple interface.
Although this isn’t the intuitive look you may expect from a sound recorder, the interface of the app lets you start a new recording with minimum effort, while also displaying the existing recordings right in the main window.
Called “messages”, the recordings can be played or deleted with the help of dedicated buttons, while the application also provides tools to export the files to WAV sound files.
There’s not much to configure about Pocket Voice Recorder, but you can still play with settings concerning the playback volume and the recording volume.
One of the major drawbacks concerns the hotkeys. While Pocket Voice Recorder comes with several predefined keyboard shortcuts aimed at the idle, the playing or the recording modes, users aren’t allowed to change them, and the only way to find out their purpose is to access the help manual.
On the other hand, Pocket Voice Recorder remains impressively friendly with hardware resources and works like a charm regardless of the Windows version running on your system.
Which leads us to a simple conclusion: Pocket Voice Recorder is a handy tool, but it’s pretty obvious that major improvements are still needed. It can serve its purpose, but don’t expect it to do wonders.
